Sort of interesting tidbit.? Congresswoman Barbera Boxer (D-California) had to cancel a fundraising event with Al Gore because he had to fly out of the country on an urgent global warming mission.? It was all very last minute.? Does this email from Boxer indicate that Gore may win the Nobel Peace Prize for his global warming initiatives?? Only the announcement scheduled for, I believe, today or tomorrow will tell.
“I just got a call from Vice President Al Gore. He told me that he needs to travel abroad tomorrow for an exciting and urgent mission that could result in a major breakthrough in the fight against global warming.
Unfortunately, this means that we must postpone our Thursday, October 11th event with him until Friday, November 9th. I wanted to be sure to e-mail you tonight in case you were planning on attending.
While I am really disappointed that we won’t see Al Gore until next month, I am thrilled that he is continuing to provide critical leadership to address one of the most pressing issues of our time. You should know that only the most urgent global warming mission has called him out of the country.
I look forward to seeing you on November 9th so we can all hear first-hand about Al Gore’s latest exciting initiatives. We will be back in touch in the coming days with more details about the rescheduled event.
Thank you so much for your continued friendship and support!”
In other, unrelated news, the Nobel Peace Prize is being awarded tomorrow in Norway.
One person doesn’t think Al Gore winning the Nobel Peace Prize is such a good thing.? And I tend to agree with Brandon Keim that the exposure of Gore winning is good for global warming, but not so good for the Nobel Peace Prize.
