Her name is Elizabeth Keadle — better known as Liz — a well-heeled Democratic donor from Southern California in her 50s with a background in science and a devotion to environmental causes.The relationship is solid enough that she accompanied Gore, 64, and an eclectic group of experts and VIPs (Richard Branson, singer Jason Mraz, actor Tommy Lee Jones) on a trip to Antarctica in January to raise awareness of climate change.The Gores assured supporters in 2010 that their decision to split up was mutual and was only made after “a process of long and careful consideration.” They are said to have remained friendly and were spotted together recently for the informal California wedding of their daughter Sarah on April 18.It’s never easy to re-enter the dating pool after years away — probably especially so if you’re one of the most famous men in the world. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former VP has a serious girlfriend, we’ve learned.After her marriage to Turner ended, Keadle was in a relationship with Nick Leibham, a young San Diego lawyer who in 2008 sought to unseat longtime Rep. Leibham lost, but his strong upstart campaign was boosted with an appearance by none other than Al Gore at one of his fundraisers.Ms Keadle, who hails from southern California, is in her 50s, and travelled to Antarctica with Mr Gore at the beginning of the year to raise awareness about climate change and global warming, according to the Post.
Draconian fuel-economy standards have actually cost American lives.Gore’s office declined to comment on the relationship, as did Keadle.It’s been nearly two years since Al and Tipper Gore shocked the public — and many of their own friends — with the announcement that they had separated after 40 years of marriage, “a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration,” they said at the time.A few fringe pastors were screaming that the end was nigh, that the righteous would soon disappear into the air while the rest of humanity was doomed to suffer a quite literal hell on earth. For about nine seconds I was gripped by sheer panic. I thought of this story as I watched Rush Limbaugh’s Al Gore “armageddon” clock expire. By the end of the clip I was expecting to see the esteemed doctors Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, and Ray Stantz step forward to predict, “Rivers and Seas boiling! ” And of course the ultimate disasters: “Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together . As broadcast its shrieking warning about Manhattan’s imminent doom, how many environmentalist liberals were selling their Park Avenue apartments and moving to higher ground?Forget the biblical admonition that no man knows the day nor hour of Christ’s return, these men had figured it out. I was a sophomore at a Christian college in Nashville, and it was the talk of the campus. In January, 2006 — when promoting his Oscar-winning (yes, Oscar-winning) documentary, — Gore declared that unless we took “drastic measures” to reduce greenhouse gasses, the world would reach a “point of no return” in a mere ten years. They’re like a drunk preacher screaming about the evils of demon rum.
