Al Gore to retire from Apple's board of directors due to age limit policy

Former Vice President Al Gore will retire from Apple's board of directors this year, the Big Tech company announced, noting that Gore has been part of the panel since 2003.

"The board has a longstanding policy that directors generally may not stand for reelection after reaching age 75," Apple noted in a press release.

Gore, who is currently 75, will turn 76 at the end of March.

He served as vice president during President Bill Clinton's White House tenure, then lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush. Gore had previously served in the House and Senate.

"For more than 20 years, Al has contributed an incredible amount to our work — from his unconditional support for protecting our users' privacy, to his incomparable knowledge of environment and climate issues," Apple CEO Tim Cook said, according to the company's press release.

Gore, a prominent proponent of climate alarmism, is on the World Economic Forum's board of trustees.

"We need to rapidly phase out fossil fuels, dramatically accelerate climate finance, protect nature, and deploy renewable energy both rapidly and equitably. Now is the moment when we must do all that we can to renew one of the key resources necessary for climate action: political will," he asserted in a September tweet.

He "is the founder and chairman of The Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit devoted to solving the climate crisis," according to algore.com.
