Friend of the blog, Craig Compeau, owner of Compeau’s, a boat, motor and snow machine dealer in Fairbanks, Alaska e-mailed me the press release containing details for his latest incarnation of Frozen Al Gore:

Fairbanks, AK – In an ongoing effort to attract Former Vice President Al Gore to come to Fairbanks and debate his man-made global warming theories, a unique interactive ice sculpture will be unveiled Tuesday, January 5th in downtown Fairbanks.

The new sculpture, a 6’ tall, 4,000 lb, likeness of Mr. Gore will be uncovered at the corner of Airport Road and Cushman Street next to Thrifty Liquor. This year the carving features an audio dub of Mr. Gores Dec 2009 Copenhagen speech suggesting that the entire Polar Ice cap will likely disappear in the next 5 to 7 years, and urging us to upgrade our light bulbs.

As the audio is played, hot air will be omitted from the mouth of the statue, signifying the dangers to the environment of all types of man-made emissions. The source of the hot air will be the Ford F-350 flatbed truck on which the sculpture sits, with a 2” hose from the tailpipe of the vehicle, through a hole bored in the back of the head of the carving, and pumped out through the mouth of the statue.

Local businessmen Craig Compeau and Rudy Gavora commissioned the frozen artwork, by world class sculptor Steve Dean.

“We’re not giving up easy”, Compeau told onlookers as the statue was receiving its final touches Sunday evening. “We invited Mr. Gore to Fairbanks last January, (one of the coldest in decades), to debate his planet-melting theories, and his people responded via email, that although Mr. Gore would love to attend, there was a scheduling conflict. Compeau thought that was odd since he had not suggested any specific date or time.”
Locals are welcome to stop by and get their photos taken with the artwork at any time of day, although the frigid temperature may keep them away, or cause cameras to freeze up.

Temperatures in interior Alaska have recently fallen to the -30 to -40F range.

In conjunction with the release of the new statue, Compeau has incorporated a “Local Warming” contest that will raise money to provide warm winter clothing for homeless Fairbanks residents. The contest asks participants to estimate how many hours the Ford F-350 would have to run to equal the carbon output of Mr. Gores recent round trip visit to Copenhagen aboard his private Lear jet. To enter, visit www.frozengore.com.

Regular readers of this blog may remember last year’s inaugural Frozen Al Gore which even garnered a visit from Sarah Palin.   After a season of poking fun at Al Gore last year, Compeau celebrated the eventual coming of summer by breaking up Gore into cocktail ice, and served Al Gore-itas!

    It’s cool, but I still don’t like the idea of burning fuels unnecessarily. They do create Carbon Monoxide as well as CO2–so I’ve been told.

    The truth is: Whatever the gov pushes and supports via gov theories is more than likely a coverup for some other ‘plan’ or a money maker for their buddies.

    However, and with the above said, it is worth the price to put gore on the pedestal where he belongs… on ice.

  4. [...] I covered this a couple of years back when I was still a “skeptic” and before I became a “cynic,” but what appears to be the now-annual Al Gore ice sculpture display has been unveiled in Fairbanks, Alaska.  Brought to you by Craig Compeau, Master Sculpter Stephen H. Dean and local businesses in Fairbanks, this year’s piece of art comes complete with hot air — piped in from the flatbed truck’s exhaust on which it sits.  Kudos to Dean and Compeau for another great “Global Freezing Contest”.  If you don’t know the story behind it, have a read here or visit the link below to see the photos of the latest sculpture.  And a hat tip to my friend Klockarman over at Gore Lied for covering this before me.
