Is Al Gore ducking Climategate?

The Washington Times is reporting that Al Gore has abruptly canceled an appearance in Copenhagen.

Former Vice President Al Gore on Thursday abruptly canceled a Dec. 16 personal appearance that was to be staged during the United Nations' Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, which begins next week.
As described in The Washington Times' Inside the Beltway column Tuesday, the multimedia public event to promote Mr. Gore's new book, "Our Choice," included $1,209 VIP tickets that granted the holder a photo opportunity with Mr. Gore and a "light snack."
Berlingkse Media, a Danish group coordinating ticket sales and publicity for the event, said that "great annoyance" was a factor in the cancellation, along with unforeseen changes in Mr. Gore's program for the climate summit. The decision affected 3,000 ticket holders.
"We have had a clear-cut agreement, and it is unusual with great disappointment that we have to announce that Al Gore cancels. We had a huge expectation for the event. . . . We do not yet know the detailed reasons for the cancellation," said Lisbeth Knudsen, CEO of Berlingske Media, in a statement posted by the company.
The ClimateDepot,com, an online news aggregator that tracks global-warming news reports, referred to the situation as "Nopenhagen," and evidence that popular momentum for the Copenhagen conference "is fading."
There are a few floor shows taking place stateside as well.
Pajamas Media founder Roger L. Simon and independent filmmaker Lionel Chetwynd -- both members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Oscar nominees -- have called on the academy to rescind Mr. Gore's Oscars in light of the Climategate revelations.
"In the history of the academy, not to my knowledge has an Oscar ever been rescinded. I think they should rescind this one," Mr. Simon said Thursday.
News that British and American scientists had manipulated global warming statistics to suit their agenda was made public two weeks ago after their personal e-mails were posted on the Internet.
The film version of Mr. Gore's book "An Inconvenient Truth" won two Oscars in 2007 -- for Best Documentary Feature and Best Original Song.
For the life of me I will never understand how this fraud became the poster boy of Climate Change. Al Gore doesn’t even have a science degree. It is said he was a D student in science and spent the first part of this post grad studies at divinity school.

I guess he has used his divinity training to make big money as a cheap televangelist singing the liberal gospel of climate change! What a fraud!

I don't know why Mr. Gore would cancel his well-paid appearance. It's not like he'll take any unscripted questions from a skeptic.
If the Academy does decide to rescind an Oscar (let us pray), I can think of a few more Oscars to rescind.

What I find shocking is that there are that many numskulls out there willing to listen to Gore!

I can think of a slew of Oscars that should be clawed back!

If there is any good in this is that now, I am sure, Mr. Gore is sweating.

Exactly. He is no better than those cheap and cheesy televangelists.

As the poster boy of Global Warming, he is going to get one hell of a public shellacking when the fraud is fully exposed.
