What environmental impact will Gore statue have in TN?

WSMV reports that a statue may be in the works for the Goracle in TN:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A resolution urging the creation of statues to be built on the Tennessee Capitol grounds of the state’s two Nobel Peace Prize winners, Al Gore and Cordell Hull, is on its way to a full Senate vote.

The Senate State and Local Government Committee on Tuesday advanced the measure supporting the privately funded statues on a 9-0 vote. The resolution previously passed in the House unanimously.


Both men served as Democratic congressmen and senators from Tennessee before moving on to the executive branch, Hull as secretary of state and Gore as vice president.

RantRave has some questions:

Personally, I can’t understand why Tennessee would want another stoned-face version of Al Gore. Also, it makes me wonder what Al Gore would be doing, as a statue. Wearing a cape? Maybe scolding you, while flying in a personal jet? Perhaps he could be holding a torch, with an eternal flame, and a donations box, to pay for the carbon-offset credits.

I wonder if Al Gore would even approve of the statue. How much energy will be expended in the creation of a statue? What about the careless use of an unsustainable resource (rock)? And, couldn’t the spot where a statue goes up be used to plant a tree, instead? Will he heroically stand up to the Senate?
