Al Gore Intrigued by Cold Fusion/LENR

Former Vice President Al Gore, well known for his championing of environmental causes, indicates that he is keeping tabs on happenings in the world of LENR. In this video of a recent Google+ conversation Gore participated in, he makes a comment that shows he is at least paying some attention to recent LENR developments. He says that right now, fusion of any kind is not something that we should bet on, but he seems interested, at least.

To see his remarks about cold fusion, go to around the 19 minute point. Also notice his comments on hot fusion, which echo points made here many times.

I have often thought that LENR could really benefit from a prominently known champion to bring it to the attention of the public. Based on these comments, is it possible that Al Gore could fill that role?
