"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.
