No, why would they? Doc Ock isn't the kind of villain that operates on a global scale or threatens the world -or anyone besides Pete, really- regularly and large-scale murder and destruction have never been his style. I doubt few people outside New York even really know who he is.
Besides, he's proven that his plan would work and he's a crippled man at death's door, there's absolutely no reason for everyone to go along with his plan out of fear.
And while I'm sure Al Gore enjoys the publicity as much as any public figure would, at least he's taking up a worthy cause hardly anyone in the United States seems all that comitted to, I'm sorry to say.
Stylizing anyone to be the posterboy/patron saint of an issue is ultimately the wrong way to go about it and slightly obnoxious, but it's hardly super-villain level explotation if it benefits everyone in the long term.

Actually, Ock has threatened mass-murder multiple times. (once he was going to nuke New York to prove that he could, at another point he was going to addict the entire world to cocaine, knowing that a good chunk would overdose from his delivery method)

World wide cocaine addictions? When did that happen? How did I miss that?

It was the eighties/early 90's. White Suit Ock.

That's not what happeend.

Instead of mixing poison into the Earth's atmosphere, Doc Ock is spreading a cure for cocaine addiction. Any person who has been subjected to the gas will violently convulse if they do cocaine, thus deterring them from doing the drug and possibly helping to break the habit. While this may sound like a good thing, the good doctor has ulterior motives. Doctor Octopus believes that with the large amount of wealthy individuals on the planet addicted to cocaine, he can sell the "antidote" for this "cure" for large sums of money so that the rich can still get high.
