Al Gore Selling Handshakes in Copenhagen

Oh forever more:

“Have you ever shaken hands with an American vice president? If not, now is your chance. Meet Al Gore in Copenhagen during the UN Climate Change Conference,” notes the Danish tourism commission, which is helping Mr. Gore promote “Our Choice,” his newest book about global warming in all its alarming modalities.

“Tickets are available in different price ranges for the event. If you want it all, you can purchase a VIP ticket, where you get a chance to shake hands with Al Gore, get a copy of Our Choice and have your picture taken with him. The VIP event costs DKK 5,999 and includes drinks and a light snack.”

Wait, what? How much is that in American dollars? The currency conversion says it all, too: 5,999 Danish kroners is equivalent to $1,209.

Man, this cat really knows how to nickel and dime suckers, doesn’t he? Forget lecturing the world about an invented problem for a solution that benefits him financially, he should charge for lectures on how he’s able to get people to believe something that is at best, theory, and has divided the scientific community.

On second thought, I think I would pay to see him try to talk his way out of Climategate.
