CUPERTINO, Calif.--The presence of one of the world's pre-eminent environmentalists at Apple's shareholder meeting Thursday was the subject of much of the morning's pointed discussion.
Gore was seated in the first row, along with his six fellow board members, in Apple's Town Hall auditorium as several stockholders took turns either bashing or praising his high-profile views on climate change.
A longtime Apple shareholder stood at the microphone and urged against Gore's re-election to the board. Gore "has become a laughingstock. The glaciers have not melted," Sheldon said, referring to Gore's views on global warming. "If his advice he gives to Apple is as faulty as his views on the environment then he doesn't need to be re-elected."

Who is Al Gore?
Oh, wait. Is he the one that won an Oscar for that mockumentary? That movie was funnier than Spinal Tap.
Fine news for a Friday mornin’!
Al Gore said that the climate was set to go to 11.
Has Gore ever run or worked for a business?
Why is he on the board of anything?
Has Gore ever had ANY training, education, or experience with climatology? Errr, I did not think so.
Didn’t he invent the Internet?
I will never buy an Apple product as long as former president-elect iGore is on the board.
“Has Gore ever run or worked for a business?
Why is he on the board of anything”?
...Gore is the honkey version of Obama. NO experience in ANY type of private sector ANYTHING. He was on the board because he was VP once, I guess.
Yeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssss;) LOL! My all time favorite movie.
At least AlGore finally surfaced....to collect a paycheck.
Now, here’s a good question, and I’d like to hear the views of those who have Apples.
Here goes ... (and dont kill the messenger, I’m ONLY asking a viable question.)
Can you be a good conservative, standing up for conservative ideas and values, and still buy Apple products and support Gore, knowing they spend a portion of your money to further Liberal causes?
(yes, I know, MS gives to Liberal causes too, but I dont think as much as Apple, and certainly not as much as Gore)
I know ALOT of people on here dont support AARP (me neither) for their contributions to the far Left. Do you consider Apple the same?
For my 2 cents, I cant support Apple OR Gore (or Google (Gore sits on its board too))
No flames please. I simply want to know what you think.
The presence of one of the world's pre-eminent
environmentalists frauds and nut jobs. There - fixed it.
Good luck with that!
I can see Gore being named an indicted co-conspirator when the climate hoaxers are brought to justice for their fraud and misuse of federal funds.
I’m in the middle of a blizzard as we speak. The winds were 50 MPH last night.
IIRC Rush uses Apple products.
Interesting question.....what do you drive?
