As described in The Washington TImes’ Inside the Beltway column Tuesday, the multi-media public event to promote Mr. Gore’s new book “Our Choice” included $1,209 VIP tickets that granted the holder a photo opportunity with Mr. Gore and a “light snack.” Berlingkse Media, a Danish group coordinating ticket sales and publicity for the event, said that “great annoyance” was a factor in the cancellation, along with unforeseen changes in Gore’s program for the climate summit. The decision affected 3,000 ticket holders. “We have had a clear-cut agreement, and it is unusual with great disappointment that we have to announce that Al Gore cancels. We had a huge expectation for the event. … We do not yet know the detailed reasons for the cancellation,” said Lisbeth Knudsen, CEO of Berlingske Media, in a statement posted by the company. The ClimateDepot,com, an online news aggregator that track global warming news reports, referred to the situation as “Nopenhagen”, and evidence that popular momentum for the Copenhagen conference “is fading.” There are a few floor shows taking place stateside as well. Pajamas Media founder Roger L. Simon and independent filmmaker Lionel Chetwynd — both members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Oscar nominees — have called on the Academy to rescind Mr. Gore’s Oscars in light of the Climategate revelations. “In the history of the Academy, not to my knowledge has an Oscar ever been rescinded. I think they should rescind this one,” Mr. Simon said Thursday. News that British and American scientists had manipulated global warming statistics to suit their agenda was made public two weeks ago after their personal emails were posted on the Internet. of the last two weeks. Mr. Gore won two Oscars in 2007 for the film version of his book, “An Inconvenient Truth”; he was awarded Academy Awards for Best Documentary Feature and Best Original Song.   No virus found in this incoming message.Checked by AVG – www.avg.comVersion: 9.0.709 / Virus Database: 270.14.83/2529 – Release Date: 12/03/09 07:32:00
