Looks like the Nobel Peace Prize is in the bag for the World’s Greatest Scientist (via Drudge):
Sen. Barbara Boxer’s office just contacted us to say former Vice President Al Gore has been called “overseas” for a trip related to his work on global warming and has canceled his scheduled appearance Thursday in San Francisco at a fundraiser for Boxer’s re-election effort. So the Boxer fundraiser — which was to include Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne — is off until Nov. 9.
Here’s a note Boxer sent supporters about the change:
I just got a call from Vice President Al Gore. He told me that he needs to travel abroad tomorrow for an exciting and urgent mission that could result in a major breakthrough in the fight against global warming.
Unfortunately, this means that we must postpone our Thursday, October 11th event with him until Friday, November 9th. I wanted to be sure to e-mail you tonight in case you were planning on attending.
While I am really disappointed that we won’t see Al Gore until next month, I am thrilled that he is continuing to provide critical leadership to address one of the most pressing issues of our time. You should know that only the most urgent global warming mission has called him out of the country.
I look forward to seeing you on November 9th so we can all hear first-hand about Al Gore’s latest exciting initiatives. We will be back in touch in the coming days with more details about the rescheduled event.
Thank you so much for your continued friendship and support!
What next for him, I wonder. Where can he go from this?
Shame about that British Court finding the main reason he’s winning the prize was “alarmist” and “apocalyptic.”
