There’s at least one woman out there who probably thinks former Vice President Al Gore still has a way with words. Bloomberg Television anchor Francine Lacqua fainted into Gore’s arms during an onstage interview in Paris.

“Why are we still using fossil fuels?” Lacqua asked Gore during an event last week, according to a recently posted Youtube video.

“That is the point we are at right now. It has taken time, but now the change is bursting out,” Gore said during his lengthy response to why the world still uses fossil fuels for the vast majority of people’s energy needs.

“There is also oh-eh-eh-a-an extremely important…” Lacqua said before collapsing into Gore’s arms.

“Are you okay?” Gore asked.

“Yes,” Lacqua responded.

“Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. You’ll be fine. Hold on. There we go. Okay,” Gore said as Lacqua had trouble standing up.

Lacqua interviewed Gore at an event hosted by her boss, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. The interview took place at Paris City Hall as United Nations delegates meet to hash out a successor to the Kyoto Protocol.

It’s not clear why Lacqua fainted. Was she moved by Gore’s words and overcome with his presence? Or was she dehydrated and tired?
