#1 The glittering fundraiser was held in The Royal Courts of Justice and attracted world leaders, entrepreneurs and celebrity activists including Bob Geldof, Darryl Hannah and Jerry Hall, who was there as "a Special Ambassador of The Alliance for a New Humanity".

He could not have bored a nicer audience.

However, a spokesman for Mr Gore, who won his Oscar for the polemic documentary An Inconvenient Truth, told The Mail on Sunday: "Mr Gore donates a percentage of all of his speaking fees to the Alliance for Climate Protection.

So, 1% is still a percent right?

#3 The author writes as though this is a surprise. Gore's been 'receiving' honoraria for years; the only 'surprise' is the amount / rate charged.

#4 The Goracle has been profiting off the Global warming sham for years. It is the only reason he doesn't run for president. Milking the stupid is much more profitable.

#5 Well, I just learned something, I thought "polemic documentary" meant something else, I didn't know it meant "Lying sack of shit".

You live and learn.

#7 "that is about $6,750/minute or $405,000/hour"

I absolutely hate being up in front of other people.

But for that amount of money (hell, even half that amount), I will get up in front of a roomful of strangers - or even people I know - and talk more entertaining bullshit that AlBore does.

Or better yet, I'll do the talking over a videoconference link and save a shitload of "carbon."

#8 Anyone know if BJ Clinton still commands higher appearance fees than the Goracle, Oscar and Nobel notwithstanding?
