Al Gore will talk environment, business, and politics with Long Island businesses Friday at Crest Hollow Country Club.
Long Island Association President and CEO Kevin Law will lead a conversation and question-and-answer session with the former U.S. Vice President at the Woodbury club.
Gore, a widely-known environmental advocate, will touch on aspects that affect businesses, like going green, responding to climate change, prosperity in the wake of environmental changes and energy crises, and rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy.
Also on the discussion agenda are political issues affecting businesses, Bush and Obama administration legacies, and national issues from the economy and deficits to immigration and issues in the Middle East.
The event begins at 11 a.m. Friday.
Gore is the second ex-VP to meet with LIA at Crest Hollow Country Club in the past year. Former Vice President Dick Cheney addressed local businesses in October just two days after President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney faced off at Hofstra University.
