    While I am not an Al Gore fan, his celebrity in the area of environmental awareness would be HUGE for the dive community. (If that is really him!) I hope he loves diving and gets behind things like Project Aware and other important projects to preserve our underwater environment (and playground). Maybe he can also communicate with the current administration about opening up Cuba to diver tourism. Is anyone besides me anxious for open and simple travel to Cuba???

    I'm not an Al Gore fan either, but good for him. I hope he learns a lot and has fun.

    Gore Family Goes Scuba Diving, Reef Exploring in Keys - Los Angeles Times



    Gore Family Goes Scuba Diving, Reef Exploring in Keys
    November 29, 1992| From Associated Press

    Vice President-elect Al Gore and his family went scuba diving and explored the coral reef off the Florida Keys Friday.

    The Gores arrived Tuesday at Little Palm Island, a resort about 28 miles northeast of Key West, and they've been sunbathing, para-sailing and learning to scuba dive, said Joe Roth, a general partner of Little Palm Island.

    "He told me the whole idea behind the vacation was to be able to spend some quality time with (wife) Tipper and the children," Roth said. "He seems quite impressed with the resort and the seclusion we've been able to provide."

    Depends on whether or not he's been diving since then. If not, then taking the class over again is the right thing to do ... it ain't like riding a bicycle, yanno ...
