    Al Gore won a Nobel Prize and an Oscar for his film, An Inconvenient Truth. But in the last three months, as global warming has gone from a scientific near-certitude to the subject of satire, Gore -- the public face of global warming -- has been silent on the topic.

    The former vice president apparently finds it inconvenient even to answer calls to testify before the U.S. Senate. You can call him Al . . . but he won't call back.

    On Tuesday, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe -- a prominent skeptic of global warming theory and the Republican leader of the Senate's Environment and Public Works Committee -- issued a request for Gore to come testify on global warming. In an interview with FoxNews.com, Inhofe said he wants Gore to appear because "it will be interesting to ask him on what science he based his movie," a film the senator considers "science fiction."

    Gore has yet to respond, but that didn't prevent him from causing a stir at Apple's shareholder meeting Thursday. According to CNET, Gore was seated in the first row while several stockholders bashed his high-profile views on climate change. One reportedly said Gore "has become a laughingstock. The glaciers have not melted."

    Gore did not reply, and he has not commented on his blog or Twitter feed.

    The Global Warming hoax has costed working people billions if not trillions of dollars. Somebody should to to prison. I wonder if Al looks just as wooden in stripes as he does in a suite?

    Of course, he'll never take the rap for it. Somebody way down the food chain will get the blame.

    Of course Al Gore is not a scientist. In his movie, his book, and his speeches he is doing little more than repeating what others have said. He does not have the skill to check the data himself. Therefore he has put himself in his current position. If he were to go before congress to answer questions he would only make a big fool of himself.

    I'm glad he's being humiliated. He deserves it.

    I doubt he is feeling humiliated.

    He probably just thinks that everyone else is stupid.

    Plus he already made millions off of it.

    Yep, he is sitting pretty in his huge energy hog home, driving to the airport in his evil gas guzzling SUV, and flying around the world in his private jet producing a great big hypocritical carbon foot print.

    How?

    What costs billions is the money spent on federal flood insurance which rebuilds shore mansions for millionaires. Money dumped on low lying areas which are flood prone.

    If it's not too much trouble, try and stay in the same area code as the topic at hand...
