Former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore is in Portland tonight, speaking at the Keller Auditorium. He got a true Portland welcome in the form of environmentalist graffiti sprayed on the auditorium.

PETA plans to protest Gore's speech, demanding he become a vegetarian. And global warming deniers will also be there.

Pat Dooris goes to find out how did Gore became such a lightning rod for activists on the far left and right. Watch his story tonight on Live @ 7.
