: The irony is as thick as the snow on my deck right now:

Mother Nature is threatening to give Al Gore the cold shoulder today when he gives a speech on “global warming” at the Beacon Theater.

Accuweather is predicting the temperature will reach a high of a bone-rattling 14 degrees this morning – accompanied by snow and high winds – while Gore blasts the Bush administration’s policy on global warming.

“We don’t control the environment,” said Lisa Sabori, a public-relations official for, the group sponsoring the event.

“Maybe [the speech] won’t apply in New York right now, but Vice President Gore will be highlighting the effects of global warming in different parts of the world,” Sabori added.

MoveOn will webcast the event here. Here’s hoping somebody leaves the door open.
