Some critics now question if the whole “resistance” mantra has lost its charm for Democrats in search of a viable voter message. Nevertheless, Al Gore’s climate activist group — the Climate Reality Project — has embraced resistance. As of Monday, the group adopted the new motto “We resist, we build, we rise,” vowing to fight back against “Big Oil insiders” and other foes.
Mr. Gore himself will get to demonstrate all this new resistance during a three-day Climate Reality Leadership Corps training session which begins Tuesday near Bellevue, Washington. Gov. Jay Inslee will also have a say. “Give us three days. We’ll give you the tools to change the world,” advise event organizers.
