((dave courvoisier)) >> gore, the filmmaker behind "an inconvenient truth" and the newest "an inconvenient sequel," told the crowd that renewable energy is becoming more widespread and cost-competitive with fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. politics now co-host steve sebelius was at the summit and is here with that story. steve? ((steve sebelius)) >> gore was part-evangelist, part-ted talker today as he outlined the state of the renewable energy industry by taking a page from his latest film. despite the progress that's been made on renewable energy, gore said, 80 percent of electricity is still generated by fossil fuels. burning those fuels produces the largest source of pollution in the atmosphere, he said. ((steve sebelius)) >> gore said recent hurricanes in texas, florida and the caribbean were made more intense because of climate change, and predicted we'd see more of them in the future. rising sea levels and droughts willalso lead to food and water shortages, migration and refugees, he said. that makes the issue a political and military problem as well as an environmental issue, gore said. but the former vice president said he wasn't concerned about president donald trump's decision to withdraw from the paris climate accords, which call for a net zero pollution emissions by the middle of the century. ((al gore/former vice president: i was worried when he made his announcement but then the next day all these states and cities and business leaders, jim murren among them, said we;re still in the partis agreement. we're going to continue forward. we are going to win! we are going to succeed! we have got to win faster than we're winning now. )) ((steve sebelius)) >> one way to win, gore suggested, was to reduce subsidies for fossil fuel industries, which gore estimated at nearly 700 billion dollars in 2013. by contrast, he said, subsidies for renewable energy amounted to 27 billion in subsidies in 2015. ((steve sebelius)) >> in addition to gore, the summit also focused on electric vehicles, modernizing the energy grid, the national security implications of climate change and a talk featuring former secretary of energy ernest moniz.
