Frozen Gore

Someone has a bone to pick with Al Gore.

So he made a 2.5 m ice sculpture of him. You know, to prove a point about global warming.

The man who sponsored the sculpture is a global warming skeptic and I suppose he wants to see if this sculpture melts? The businessman in question is Craig Compeau and the location of sculpture is Alaska.

When unveiling the sculpture, Compeau taunted the former vice president to come to the northern state and explain global warming theories. If Al Gore travels by electric car and comes on a specific date to Tetlin Junction, where on January 8 the temperature dropped to a guts-freezing -60 degrees Celsius, Compeau promised he would pay for his room and board.

This is Compeau's official site about the frozen artwork.
