Statement by Former Vice President Al Gore on the Passing of Maurice Strong

“The world is indebted to Maurice Strong for his visionary leadership toward solutions for the climate crisis. It is in no small measure because of Maurice that world leaders are meeting here in Paris this week to continue the journey of hope that he charted in Rio more than 23 years ago. Many of us here will be honoring his memory as the world begins to take climate action these next two weeks. I will miss him as a close friend and a tireless advocate for a healthier planet.”
