Fairbanks, Alaska Boasts Frozen Gore

, , , ,

Local businessmen Rudy Gavora and Craig Compeau, shivering on a recent -46F day (-43.3C) commissioned local sculptor Steve Dean to convert a 10,000 lb. (4545.45 k.) block of ice into an image of Nobel Prize winner and weather prophet Albert Gore.

8 other businesses chipped in on funding for the sculpture and an associated Global Freezing Contest in which participants get to estimate how much colder or warmer the winter of 08/09 will be than the winter of 47/48 (when the Prophet Albert was born).

Prizes include 300 gallons of heating oil, a heated car seat, and a Ski-doo jacket.

AL “THE BORE” GORE, MAKING MONEY ON THE BIG LIE. MOST STATES HAVE SEEN TEMPERATURES PLUNGE TO HISTORIC LOWS. HEY AL, HAVE YOU STUCK YOUR REAR END OUT THE DOOR LATELY?
HE IS A TYPICAL LIAR, TELL THAT OTHER LIAR IN THE WHITE HOUSE THAT THAT TRIP TO COPPENHAGEN WAS A LIE TOO! AND WHO GETS IT IN THE END? YOU AND ME THE AMERICAN DUMMY TAXPAYER.
WAKE UP AMERICA ! BOYCOTT ANYTHING THAT SAYS
“GREEN” IT’S A SCAM ! DOES ANYONE KNOW IF A PEACE PRIZE OR A OSCAR CAN BE RESCINDED OR TAKEN BACK BECAUSE OF FRAUD?
