(Newser) – Al Gore has bailed out of a talk he was to give Dec. 16 in Copenhagen, an appearance timed to coincide both with the UN climate summit and with the release of his new book. The Danish group that sold 3,000 tickets, at $1200 a pop, expressed “great annoyance”; a rep hinted that the Nobel winner has bigger plans, noting that the day is the summit’s busiest—and most bigshot-heavy.
