Where's Al when the blizzard hits?

From Phil Brennan at NewsMax: Al Gore Ducks Northeast Blizzard:
As a blizzard of snow and ice pummels the Northeast after trouncing the Midwest, and waves of Arctic cold fronts drop much of America below sub freezing weather, the $64,000 question is, Where is Al Gore?
And in a report at Drudge:
SAVE IT FOR A SUNNY DAY: Maryville Univ. in St. Louis area cancelling screening of Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’ because of a snowstorm.
Amused? I am. If you're not, then maybe this is more your thing:

  1. May I suggest that establishing the distinction between weather and climate is your first challenge.

    Weather refers to the conditions at one particular time and place, and can change from hour to hour, day to day, and season to season. Climate, on the other hand, refers to the long-term average pattern of weather in a place.

  2. "May I suggest that establishing the distinction between weather and climate is your first challenge."

    You think I should follow Al in the way he carefully distinguishes between the two?

    This anonymous comment is similar to one made by Ruth at DPF. I wouldn't be surprised if it is the same person.
