Al Gore's series of misfortunate events continues. This year, his 40-year marriage hit the skids and he was accused of sexual assault (charges dismissed.) Now, what would seem a great honor –– having a school named after him –– has turned into a punch line for critics.

Construction workers remediate land on the campus of Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Sciences on September 7, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.

The $75.5 million Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Sciences, also named after pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson, was built on apparently contaminated soil, reports the Los Angeles Times. The story says workers have worked feverishly to clean up the site so the Los Angeles area school can open Monday, as slated.

Environmentalists are appalled. "Renaming this terribly contaminated school after famous environmental advocates is an affront to the great work that these individuals have done to protect the public's health from harm," an environmental coalition wrote in a letter to the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Times reports.

Yet conservative critics see delicious irony in the former vice president, who won a Nobel Peace Prize for his environmental work, having such a school named after him.

'Putting Al Gore's name on a contaminated school is just about the most intellectually honest thing to come from any educational institution in the history of the United States," writes Doug Powers on the Michelle Malkin blog. The school's "toxic fumes...might create an army of zombies which will destroy Los Angeles," joked Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly, according to Greenwire, an online news site.

School district officials insist that the property is clean and safe and have pledged to check vapor monitors and groundwater wells, reports the Times. The story adds:

Construction crews were working at the campus up to the Labor Day weekend, replacing toxic soil with clean fill. All told, workers removed dirt from two 3,800-square-foot plots to a depth of 45 feet, space enough to hold a four-story building. The soil had contained more than a dozen underground storage tanks serving light industrial businesses.

Additional contamination may have come from the underground tanks of an adjacent gas station. A barrier will stretch 45 feet down from ground level to limit future possible fuel leakage.

An oil well operates across the street, but officials said they've found no associated risks. Like many local campuses, this school also sits above an oil field, but no oil field-related methane has been detected.

Groundwater about 45 feet below the surface remains contaminated but also poses no risk, officials said.

You're kidding........right?

Gore has ALWAYS been a Class A+ asshole........and the media and Liberal-World has covered for him for 20+ years!

Gore's ENTIRE LIFE is a CLUSTER FUCK but he's had a screen of "spinners" around him so he has never had any chance of the REAL WORLD getting close to him!!!

So his screen is getting holes in it?.........he's STILL waaaay ahead of the real life game!!!

Considering that he has manage to convince most of the world that manmade global warming is true and no facts or logic can convince them otherwise, I would say this is a small setback.

Yup.

Carson's book, "Silent Spring," which lead to DDT being banned based on bad science, is indirectly responsible for the death of millions from malaria. A pox upon both their houses.

I'll bet Al's name is on a subpoena somewhere, waiting for the reckoning.

It all leads back to when my Dad used to beat Al up when they were kids.

Dad, it's all YOUR fault.

I forgot about that. Bush's dismissing him with a quick nod to the laughter of the audience was hilarious.
