Al Gore seems stiff

You'll understand if former Vice President Al Gore seems a little stiff, even cold.

This Al Gore is an ice sculpture in downtown Fairbanks, Alaska.

The frozen likeness of the Nobel Prize winner stands more than eight-feet-tall and weighs five tons.

Local businessman Craig Compeau unveiled the ice Gore yesterday.

Compeau says he's a "moderate" critic of global warming, Gore's pet issue.

Compeau adds he'd like the real Al Gore to visit Fairbanks to explain global warming theories.
