Live Earth - Thursday 1st January 1970

* GORE'S SON JAILED IN CALIFORNIA Former U.S. Vice-President AL GORE has been served a little bad news as he prepares for Saturday's (07Jul07) Live Earth spectacular - his son has been charged with driving under the influence and possessing prescription drugs and marijuana. Gore's 24-year-old son, Al Gore III, was pulled over by cops after he was clocked driving his hybrid Prius car at 100 milesper-hour in Orange County, California. Traffic cops reportedly smelled marijuana coming from his vehicle and a search turned up less than an ounce of marijuana, painkillers and valium. Gore was booked into cells at the Inmate Reception Center in Santa Ana, California, where he was officially charged, on Wednesday (04Jul07). Bail has been set at $20,000 (GBP10,000). Gore Sr is a co-organiser of the Live Earth concerts, which were inspired by his global warming documentary An Inconvenient Truth. (KL/WNV) Former Vice President academy award winner Al Gore made an unusual witness when he testified before both the senate and house on global warming. Pushing his carbon credit program with his Generation company business partner sitting behind him, next to Cindy Horn and wife Tipper Gore, Gore challenged with Senators, refused to abide by time limits given him, wanted to lecture senators on his vision and refused to swear to an pledge senator inhofe gave him the opportunity to take to show his followers that he, gore, actually walks the walk instead of just talking the talk.
