Gore: Cheney and global warming doubters are like those who thought earth was flat

Al Gore will be on CBS-TV's 60 Minutes this Sunday night to talk about global warming and what is set to be a $300 million TV ad campaign to raise awareness about it.

According to CBS, when correspondent Lesley Stahl says to the former vice president and 2000 Democratic presidential nominee that some prominent leaders aren't convinced that humans are contributing to the problem, Gore says:

"You're talking about Dick Cheney. I think that those people are in such a tiny, tiny minority now with their point of view, they’re almost like the ones who still believe that the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and those who believe the world is flat. ... That demeans them a little bit, but it's not that far off."

CBS ends its press release about the show with a very transparent tease: "Stahl also asks Gore, an uncommitted super delegate of the Democratic Party, who he supports for his party's nomination."


We tried to get CBS to tell us more. But they're holding on to that news until Sunday at 7 p.m ET. If he sticks with what he's said before, though, Gore won't commit to either Barack Obama or Hillary Rodham Clinton.
