24.1.2008. Al Gore in Davos:

Gore, Bono Outlook on Climate, Poverty

DAVOS, Switzerland Jan 24, 2008 (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore and U2 front man Bono offered measured praise
Thursday for efforts in tackling climate change and global poverty, but warned the World Economic Forum that conditions
were not improving as much as they could.

Gore says 'changing light bulbs' not enough

DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 24 (Reuters) - Climate campaigner Al Gore urged world policymakers on Thursday to change laws
"not just light bulbs" in tackling global warming, and a UN official said world market turmoil must not be allowed to delay action.

Davos duet: Gore and Bono

DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 24 (MarketWatch) - In an early morning session at this year's annual gathering of business leaders,
politicians and others at the World Economic Forum, the former U.S. vice president and the U2 frontman traded quips while
elaborating on their calls to combine efforts to fight global warming and alleviate the plight of the world's poorest citizens.

Davos switches focus to Mideast

DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 24 (AP) -- Fears of world recession briefly took a back seat Thursday at the World Economic Forum, where leaders from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq focused on how to establish security in their volatile regions.

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said poverty -- especially when paired with illiteracy -- was the key breeding ground for suicide bombers. Barham Saleh, deputy prime minister of Iraq, described terrorism in his country as "efforts by extremists to hijack my religion."

Afghan President Hamid Karzai, whose country has recently seen an upsurge in suicide bombings, said the practice "isn't religious, it's criminal."

Musharraf pledged to battle the "scourge" of radicalism in regions bordering Afghanistan. And he said he would do his utmost to ensure Pakistani elections next month would be fair.

Saleh suggested that U.S. troops would remain in Iraq indefinitely.

"Our expectation is that we would need the Americans in a supporting role ... for some time to come," he said. Iraq needs America as a guarantor of security to act against "regional predators," he said.
Thursday began with an early morning session where former Vice President Al Gore and U2 front man Bono offered measured praise for efforts in tackling climate change and global poverty, but warned that conditions were not improving as much as they could. Read about Bono's warning.

Addressing several hundred people, Gore warned that the world climate crisis was worsening.

"We could take the whole session talking just about the new scientific evidence of the last few weeks and months," said Gore, who shared last year's Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to fight climate change. The "climate crisis is significantly worse and unfolding more rapidly," he added.
