"Frozen Gore" Sculpture Fuels Warming Debate

Another two-ton ice sculpture of former Vice President Al Gore is back in front of a Fairbanks, Alaska liquor store.

"Frozen Gore" is a dig at Gore's beliefs about climate change.

The first statue went on display last year. This year's version is hooked up to the exhaust of a pickup truck to make it appear Gore is spouting hot air.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the smoke drew laughs from a crowd Tuesday as a Gore speech on climate change played over a loudspeaker.

The sculpture was commissioned by two businessmen, Craig Compeau and Rudy Gavora, who want Gore to discuss global warming in Fairbanks.

    RADOG, actually, Gore wants you to buy carbon credits from him so he can make even more money. Instead of $200 per month, he wants to make it $600.....its all in the Cap and Trade Bill...

    Umm...more eastern NC rocket scientists. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. It is just something that is happening. Can we stop it from happening? Probably not, but this spouting on and on by you ignorant folks here is really dumb! I'll bet most of you wouldn't know a CO2 molecule if it bit you on the hind parts!

    Sometimes struggling with getting a post through..... Anonymous on Jan 8, 2010 at 11:22 AM, I have been trying to set the record straight and apoligize. Apparently, we have a more liberal moderator than Chris or I have not been doing the two clicks to send. Sincerely sorry, I missunderstood the comment, but I see it now. Scooter, we have plenty of fools, those left sporting Obama stickers are just some that left them on too long. Now America is confronted with they guy that tells lies quicker than the president of the pathological liars club. Jeff, right, science is based on factual data, not those adjusted to make it look like a "change" has occurred. Last year was colder in NC than most years, this year is now colder than record years, yet, we as sheep are told we don't know what we are talking about. Sorry, I pay my utility bills and know better. Also, you were correct Jeff, that story about the polar ice caps shifting was held by AP due to the Copenhagen summit....too faactual.

    Yes Jeff you are absolutely right. Science is based on fact and until they give enough evidence to prove what is still only a theory, they need to quit wasting taxpayers money. Anyone who can not see the whole thing as a mechanism to redistribute wealth is a fool.
