Has Al Gore been hanging out in chilly Chile?

A while back, Instapundit commented on a phenomenon known as the Gore Effect:
The phenomenon that leads to unseasonably cold temperatures, driving rain, hail, or snow whenever Al Gore visits an area to discuss global warming. Hence, the Gore Effect.

- Australia, November 2006: Al Gore is visiting two weeks before summer begins. The Gore Effect strikes: "Ski resort operators gazed at the snow in amazement. Parents took children out of school and headed for the mountains. Cricketers scurried amid bullets of hail as Melburnians traded lunchtime tales of the incredible cold." (The Age)

- New York, March 2004: "Gore chose January 15, 2004, one of the coldest days in New York City's history, to rail against the Bush administration and global warming skeptics... Global warming, Gore told a startled audience, is causing record cold temperatures." (NY Environment News)
Which is why some may be wondering if Al Gore has been giving any Global Warming speeches in Chile (HT: Instapundit):
Brrr... It's a chilly Chile this year.
Record ice cap growth in Antarctica and record low temperatures in Argentina won't stop global warming alarmists from manufacturing hysteria...
