It’s still up in the air whether president-elect Barack Obama will decide to create a new position of White House ‘Climate Czar’, but one thing’s for certain: Al Gore won’t be taking the job.

Though Barack Obama has said that, "Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem [of climate change]," according to a Gore spokesperson, it’ll have to be in an unofficial capacity:Gore’s Best Roll Is Rallying Support

Former Vice President Gore does not intend to seek or accept any formal position in government. He feels very strong right now that the best thing for him to do is to build support for the bold changes that we have to make to solve the climate crisis. (Washington Times)
