Uh oh. According to Al Gore Lied, some people at Apple have been dissing Uncle Al!
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.
But it gets even better.
At the first opportunity for audience participation just several minutes into the proceeding, a longtime and well-known Apple shareholder–some would say gadfly–who introduced himself as Sheldon, 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.”
Poor Al. I guess he’ll have to slink back to Tennessee and hide out again.
If I knew Sheldon I’d buy him a beer! “Laughingstock” is an excellent description!
