Don't anyone hold their breath waiting for Al Gore to seriously debate anyone about his view of global warming. Maybe this kind of challenge will stir others to question the folly of man-caused global warming and trying to control it.
One Expert Is Willing to Bet Money Al Gore Is Wrong About Global Warming

Global Warming Bet
An internationally known expert on forecasting methods is challenging Al Gore to a bet over his prediction of global warming temperature increases.
Marketing professor Scott Armstrong of the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton business school is offering to put up $10,000 in a bet for charity.
The wager would involve Gore's forecasts against what is called the "naive model" — in which temperatures basically would stay the same.
Armstrong believes most climate change forecasts use bad methodology. He says the bet is meant as a way to provoke debate.
Armstrong says he hasn't gotten a response yet — and Gore's office did not return a call from us asking for reaction to the challenge.
