Former Vice President Al Gore received an honorary degree from the University of Tennessee during the College of Arts and Sciences graduation ceremony Friday morning.

Gore told students in a 20-minute speech that addressing climate change is the "biggest item of unfinished business" on the American agenda.

Members of the Knoxville Tea Party, Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow and even an Irish film director and journalist planned to protest the event.

Slightly more than a dozen protesters gathered outside the ceremony Friday morning, a smaller crowd than rallied on Thursday night.

"We'll be handing out fake diplomas and mock graduation programs to people in attendance that shows facts about what Al Gore promotes, said Evan Flores with Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow.

The three groups feel Gore's work in climate change is inaccurate.

"Global warming is a fraud. He knows it's a fraud," Knoxville Tea Party member Antonio Hinton said.

"I think it's odd that the University of Tennessee is giving a degree to someone who produced a documentary that the British High Court says has nine significant errors," film director Phelim McAleer added.

I guess it's kind of like winning the Nobel Prize for doing nothing...

Climate change will always be "unfinished business", because the climate is ALWAYS changing, and has since the day the Earth first evolved a climate. Until the day that mankind invents a way to control the weather, change will be a constant companion, regardless of enviro-crooks like Algore.

Ditto what you said.

 

I do have to admit that there is a certain brilliance to coming up with a way to make money by scaring people about something that occurs naturally in an unpredictable way.

Meanwhile, a certificate from the University of Tennessee might as well be a "cow patty." Dried, of course, we wouldn't want any methane or CO2 in there!
