Nearly one in five global consumers (18%) picked Al Gore as the most influential spokesperson to champion the global warming debate, ahead of former United Nations head, Kofi Annan (15%), with Oprah Winfrey and Bill Clinton tying as third choice (14% each). Ranked fifth with eleven percent of global votes was former South African president, Nelsen Mandela.
