(CNN) – Former vice president and environmental advocate Al Gore sharply criticized President Obama's "failed" approach to global warming Wednesday.
Gore was supportive of Obama's action in the first six months of his administration, but the former Democratic presidential nominee said the administration has not made the case for action among the American people.
