MANILA, Philippines - Former US Vice President Al Gore arrived in Manila Tuesday morning ahead of his scheduled lecture on climate change at the SMX Convention Hall at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

Gore arrived at the NAIA Terminal 1 at around 11 a.m. on board a Korean Air flight KE 621 from Seoul. He is scheduled to meet President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo before his lecture.

Gore, who won the Nobel Prize for his work on raising awareness of climate change, made headlines last week after he and his wife Tipper announced that they will separate after four decades of marriage.
