Al Gore meets Donald Trump and Ivanka for climate talks
Former Vice President Al Gore has met President-elect Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump to discuss climate policy.
The meeting "was a sincere search for areas of common ground," said Mr Gore, a climate change activist.
During his presidential campaign, Mr Trump called man-made climate change a "hoax" perpetuated by China.
His daughter Ivanka reportedly wants to make the subject one of her signature issues.
It is unclear what role she will have in her father's administration, but he had said that his children would take over his global business interests.
All three of Mr Trump's adult children are serving on his transition team.
Mr Gore told reporters he met Ivanka before his meeting with her father.
"The bulk of the time was with the president-elect, Donald Trump. I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued," Mr Gore said.
Last week a spokesman for Mr Trump says that Mr Gore would not be meeting Mr Trump during his visit to Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan.
Ivanka Trump is perceived to be a more progressive voice on her father's transition team, compared to his other advisers.
In the weeks after Mr Trump's surprise election win, New Yorkers posted "Dear Ivanka" messages on social media and outside a Manhattan building owned by her husband, Jared Kushner.
Many notes appealed to her to prevent her father from rolling back US climate change pledges, including the Paris agreement, which was signed earlier this year at the United Nations in New York.
Ivanka Trump and her husband have also reportedly been house-hunting in Washington DC, leading some to speculate that she will continue to serve her father in a political role.
