FAIRBANKS - In what might become an annual tradition, an ice sculpture of former Vice President Al Gore has taken its place in front of Thrifty Liquor along Airport Way.
The two-ton Frozen Gore sculpture isnt exactly a tribute. Its a tongue-in-cheek critique of Gores vocal belief in man-made climate change, complete with hot air pouring out of his mouth.
Local businessmen Craig Compeau and Rudy Gavora contracted the piece from award-winning sculptor Steve Dean and say theyll keep erecting one each winter until Gore accepts an invitation to discuss the global warming issue in Fairbanks.
We do want to invite debate, Compeau said. We dont agree with his theories were suspicious of the financial motivation behind them.
This years version includes special effects, thanks to a system that pipes the exhaust from a Ford F-350 out of Gores open mouth. Compeau will fire up the truck periodically this winter to create the hot air effect.

"Smokin' and Frozen Al Gore!" - January, 2010 - Fairbanks, Alaska
PALIN's Fault !!
ROFLMAO!!! It's stuff like this that adds to my conviction that Alaska is the only 'normal' state left in the Union.
I’d move there myself, if there were any jobs in my field to be had, and I had the resources to buy a house. Other than those, the only thing holding me back is the fact that my wife is a hothouse flower, and would freeze solid up there. Alaska is probably the only other state that could make a go of seceding, as they have tremendous energy reserves, and could use those to trade for the things they can’t manufacture yet.
