The Danes seem a little miffed over this. Around 3000 chumps had already purchased tickets, but “unforeseen changes in Al Gore’s program”, have caused him to cancel.
Weird! I wonder what could have precipitated this?
Berlingske reports, (via Google tranlate):
Al Gore has this morning told Berlingske Media’s great annoyance has canceled his planned major climate talks for Danes 16th december i Tap 1 på den gamle Carlsberg grund under titlen ”Klimakonklusion”. December 1 Tap in the old Carlsberg because, under the title “Climate Conclusion”.
(rest redacted due to bad translation…go to Berlingske to read).
Newsbusters has more:
Al Gore apparently has canceled a high-priced speaking engagement during the upcoming climate change conference in Copenhagen.
As NewsBusters reported Tuesday, the Nobel Laureate was slated to lecture about his new book “Our Choice” where attendees could pay over $1,200 a ticket for the right to meet the Global Warmingist-in-Chief and have their picture taken with him.

Da Tech Guy’s Blog: I guess Jon Stewart was right …
Washington Times: Gore cancels personal appearance in Copenhagen
Hot Air: Oh my: Al Gore bails on lecture at Copenhagen
Allahpundit made me lol with this snark: Alternate headline: “Pope to skip Easter mass.”
He thinks it’s not a big deal. Gore’s still going to be a very conspicuous presence in Copenhagen. The “high priest of global warming” is not gonna bail on this easily. Allah’s probably right not to read too much into this.
A rebuttal from Jackstraw in the comments:
No, actually Allah is wrong. Gore has been pimping this meeting for months and had over 3000 people signed up to come hear the climate god spew his nonsense.
For him to back out of this very public meeting means he knows that the walls are crumbling and he wants to keep away from any public venue where he might actually get asked questions by “skeptics”.
This fraud is coming undone.
