Doctor Albert Gore Jr.?

Former Vice President and current environmental activist Al Gore is under consideration to receive an honorary degree from the University of Minnesota for his work in climatology.

Gore has recently garnered worldwide attention for his Academy Award nominated global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," as well as his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work combating global climate change.

Although, University spokesperson Daniel Wolter did admit the University of Minnesota was interested in honoring Gore for his work on the subject, he refused to confirm or deny specific details surrounding the honoring ceremony.

Good idea. Al Gore deserves to be rewarded for his work on global warming and it has the added bonus of pissing off Rush Limbaugh's entire audience. Let's make it so.
