If the University of Minnesota follows through and awards an honorary doctorate to Al Gore. The whole global warming tee shirt scam is an exercise in herd mentality. It’s as anti-scientific as letting the church outlaw teaching evolution. Making such an unscientific blunder as this is reasonable basis for terming all Phd’s awarded by UMN to be considered strictly honorary only.
You’d be better off with a mail order degree from Fly-By-Night-U.
