The second (yes, second) Al Gore-inspired ice sculpture was recently erected in Fairbanks, Alaska and is causing quite the controversy!
At the begining of last year, Ecorazzi told you that some folks in Alaska had erected a ice statue of Al Gore to protest his views on global warming. Now, another piece of ice art has been built by two Alaskan climate skeptics and businessmen who “don’t agree with Gore’s theories” surrounding climate change and wish to lure him to a debate in Alaska. Yeah guys, I think that’s really gonna work!
“‘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.”
What’s up with all these nasty Alaskans? Is everyone as ruthless as Sarah Palin up there?
What do you think about this two-ton protest? A good investment or a waste of chime? Chime in and share your thoughts!
