Former Vice President Al Gore met Monday with president-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower. Gore described the interaction as “an extremely interesting conversation,” NBC News reports.
Gore didn’t say exactly what he and Trump discussed during the meeting. He also met with Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, who reportedly wants to make climate change a priority. The former vice president has an influential voice in the fight against human-caused climate change.
Before his electoral victory, Donald Trump called climate change a hoax “created by and for the Chinese.” Since then, he’s said he has an “open mind” about humans' effect on the climate.
