President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden are slated to meet with former Vice President Al Gore in Chicago tomorrow to discuss “energy and climate change and how policies in this area can stimulate the economy and create jobs,” the Obama camp just announced.

No word yet whether national security issues will factor into the meeting. There's no mention of such an angle in the brief statement. However, as Inside the Pentagon recently reported, Leon Fuerth, who advised Gore on national security during the Clinton administration, will be among the participants in a new study of climate, energy, and national security that is getting under way at the National Academy of Sciences.
