FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- Another two-ton ice sculpture of former Vice President Al Gore is back in front of a Fairbanks liquor store.
"Frozen Gore" is a dig at Gore's beliefs in climate change.
The sculpture was commissioned by two businessmen, Craig Compeau and Rudy Gavora, who want Gore to discuss global warming in Fairbanks.
There's an addition to the first "Frozen Gore" that went on display last year. This year's version is hooked up to the exhaust of a pickup truck to make it appear Gore is spouting hot air.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the smoke drew laughs from a crowd Tuesday as a Gore speech on clmate change played over a loudspeaker.
