He didn't use the word invented, but On 9 March 1999, during aninterview with Wolf Blitzer of CNN, Gore was asked what were thedifferences between himself from his opponent in the race for thenomination for President in 2000. His answer was, in part, "Duringmy service in the United States Congress, …I took the initiative increating the Internet." In 1988 Al Gore sponsored the National High Performance ComputerAct which created a national computing plan and began connectingother Universities and Libraries to the existing ARPANET network. Then, Al Gore began to craft the High Performance Computing andCommunication Act of 1991 (commonly referred to as "The Gore Bill")after hearing the 1988 report toward a National Research Networksubmitted to Congress by a group chaired by UCLA professor ofcomputer science, Leonard Kleinrock, one of the central creators ofthe ARPANET (the ARPANET, first deployed by Kleinrock and others in1969, is the predecessor of the Internet). The bill was passed onDecember 9, 1991 and led to the National Information Infrastructure(NII) which Gore referred to as the "information superhighway." While it might have sounded like he was taking sole credit for theinternet, he was indicating that he supported economic conditionsin the US that would allow such new developments as the internet totake place in American society. He was, indeed, awarded a lifetimeachievement award for contributions to the Internet in 2005. The Snopes site has more complete information. (MORE)
Answer . According to Gore: "... I went ahead and took initiative in helping to create the internet.". The Internet was a US Military communications project back in the early 1970s. It was designed to allow communication between military installations in case of nuclear war with the USSR with al…l standard modes of communications obliterated. The idea was to make the network functional with parts of the network destroyed, such as major cities and military bases that would have been targeted.. Al Gore did not contribute any technical expertise in creating the internet. However, while in the Senate, Gore sponsored the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991 , which laid led to the National Information Infrastructure, which Gore himself dubbed the "Informaton Super Highway." This network connected localities over high speed networks and evolved into the internet. (MORE)
Answer . 6 feet, 1 inch; 195 pounds. That was a while ago.. Much before the Nobel prize went to his head, after the swelling stopped, he's about 300 pounds.
He lost the presidential election of 2000 because he did not have enough electoral votes to win the election.
As a former Vice President of the United States (1993-2001), Gore should be addressed in person as Mr. Vice President, or in the third person as "Vice President Al Gore", "former Vice President Al Gore", or "Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States." Additionally, when Gore is appearing b…efore the United States Senate or House, he should be addressed the same. However, you will notice Republicans address him in his previous titles as "Senator Gore," or "Representative Gore." These may or may not be appropriate. (MORE)

Lesley Gore was (born May 2 , 1946 as Lesley Sue Goldstein. A self-avowed lesbian who has lived with her current partner for nearly 30 years, Gore has never been married, far as I can tell, so "Gore" is a name of choice, not matrimony. During Al Gore's presidential campaign, the liberal media mad…e much ado of Leslie Gore, apparently assuming the name connection would lend votes to Mr. Gore.

He ran for president and starred in the movie/documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" Contrary to some popular rumors, Al Gore did not invent the internet
Al Gore didn't start global warming. Global warming started when man began to burn fossil fuels that release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, about 1750. Al Gore has been influential in educating people about the dangers of global warming.
The economy would probably be better and we wouldn't have 2 wars currently going on.
No -- he lost the election in 2000 even though he won the popular vote and never ran again.
Tommy Lee Jones and Al Gore roomed together at Harvard . They first met in 1965.
Al Gore has been an effective promoter of environmental causes, particularly the concern about global warming. I don't know if, in the future, he will be given credit for helping to prevent a global catastrophe, since we don't really know yet if there will be a global catastrophe or if we will be ab…le to prevent it, however, Al Gore will certainly be given credit for making people more aware of the issues involved.

He was indeed very important. He was the 45th Vice President of the United States of America under President Bill Clinton. He is most know for his environmentally sound movements in American economy. He was quite an environmentalist and wrote the book An Inconvenient Truth .
Al Gore was Bill Clinton's Vice President. Bill Clinton was the president when Al Gore was the VP.
Gore grew up In Washington, DC where his father was a Congressmanand later a Senator. He spent his summers at the family farm inCarthage, TN.
Al Gore is a moron who, sadly, makes a HUGE profit off of lies such as that we humans have caused global warming, or that he invented the internet. Don't trust him, he is a lying hypocrite.
We would have no economy, been invaded by foreign nations.... wait. The current administration is going to be very similar. Watch and see. First 100 days has given us each thousands in new debt. We have embarrassed ourselves by apologizing like fools to the world and our enemies. We have given… companies over a trillion total dollars for their use. Lied to our soldiers about punishment for following orders. At the current rate, we should be able to compare ourselves as equals to Ethiopia in another 200 days! (MORE)
"really bad' is a relative term. He recently sold his interest in his TV network devoted to environmental issues to Al Jazeera, owned by the government iof Qatar , for a multimillion dollar profit. Qatar is pretty much proven that it has little regard for the kind of concerns championed by Gore in t…he past. (MORE)
No he is probably one of the smartest people we have in government and we should start listening to him about the environment. In the last 8 years we have lost 30% of our ice cap. He predicted that. Yes, i think he is because, his world doom and gloom theory of "global warming" is blown way out of …proportion. It seems more like a Hollywood stunt show, than a result of his actual concern for the environment. Just take a look at how much energy his home's and planes consumes compared to what the average American does. (MORE)
Al Gore did not invent the Internet. He had a role in advancing legislation that brought it into being and did so because he could its value in the future.
No, global warming is being caused by man's burning of fossil fuels(coal, oil and natural gas) in industry, transport and thegeneration of electricity, which releases carbon dioxide.
Al Gore was Vice President under President Bill Clinton and was the Democratic candidate in the 2000 presidential election. He is also well known for being an environmentalist.
He's considered one of the most infuential VPs ever, and he won the popular vote in 2000 but not the Electoral College vote.
Former President Bill Clinton doubtlessly had more in common with his own vice President Al Gore, than he did with former Presidents Nixon or Ford.
He certainly had a moral claim - he won more votes than George Bush, but the electoral college system meant that Bush won. But ultimately history is what it is, and "could have", "should have" and "would have" are just different ways of saying "didn't".
Yeah he is, he is actually the leader of the Northern East Division temple. HE provided Political ideas to the Masons such as Man Bear Pig and the sound that only he can hear. He purposely lose the election in 2000 so he could go on a special mission to blow up the moon. They covered that up pretty …well. Now he protects us from Martians and the ozone layer. HAIL GORE ALMIGHTY LEADER. (MORE)

No, Gore did not invent the Internet nor did he say that he did. That surprises me, because I know that Al Gore is really, really, really, really (like SUPER!) smart.
No, Al Gore did NOT lose a child. His children are: Sarah Gore, Kristen Gore, Al Gore lll, and Karenna Gore Schiff. I hope this helped you!
Al Gore's crowning achievement was helping fool people believing humans are responsible for global warming, and that we can help the situation.
Al Gore didn't lose the election; it was stolen from him through the use of the usual dirty tricks so favoured by the GOP.
Not exactly. He did sponsor a 1988 bill called the National High Performance Computer Act, which helped link universities and libraries with a shared network, and cosponsored a bill in 1992 called the Information Infrastructure and Technology Act, which opened the internet to commercial traffic. …The concept of the World Wide Web was invented in Switzerland by a researcher named Tim Berners-Lee, working at CERN (the European Council for Nuclear Research... the official name is French and they do their adjectives backward, which is why the acronym isn't ECNR). It did rely on the existing "internet" for transmission, but saying that Al Gore invented the world wide web is at least as inaccurate as saying that Alexander Graham Bell did so. In fairness, though Gore is widely reported as having claimed that he invented the internet, this is not precisely what he said. He did say he took an initiative in creating the internet, which is, though perhaps a bit misleading, more or less true because of the NHPCA and IITA mentioned above... without those acts, it's likely the internet as we know it today would not exist, or would at least have taken significantly longer to develop.

YES! Al Gore is one of the biggest blowhards in politics. He is an environmental retard and spouts idiotic theories about the universe.
