Karenna Gore has a lot in common with her father, former Vice President Al Gore. For one thing, they’re both very serious about climate change. She’s so serious, in fact, that she protested the production of a fracked gas pipeline in Massachusetts by climbing in the thing.
She and 22 others, including clergy, were arrested. Here she is talking about that with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now!, which featured a remote interview:
Gore, who is the Center of Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary here in New York, spoke of the importance of nonviolent civil disobedience, which is something her father has suggested as a means to combat climate change in the past.
Watch above to hear her talk about being arrested and what the pipeline will mean for the area if it is completed.
