Late last week I sat down with former Vice President Al Gore in the New York offices of his firm Generation Investments to talk about the iPad/iPhone-app version of his recent climate and energy book Our Choice.

(There’s also a lot of Gore narrating at you from inside your iPad, which had a very “Obi-Wan, you’re our only hope” Star Wars feel to it.) Gore was there to flog the app, but he took the time to talk about his maturing climate movement, and the problems of facts in politics.
