NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- The University of Oklahoma has decided to move former Vice President Al Gore's visit on Thursday to Lloyd Noble Center to accommodate demand for seats. Gore's address on the issue of global warming was originally scheduled to be held at the Catlett Music Center, a much smaller venue.

The event will be based on Gore's bestselling book and recent Oscar-winning documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Doors to the center's main entrance, on the building's east side, will open at 3 p.m. and a slide presentation about climate change is scheduled for an hour later. A free, public forum featuring OU professors with opposing views on global warming will precede Gore's visit.

The discussion, set for 1:30 p.m. in the Oklahoma Memorial Union, will feature David Deming, a College of Arts and Sciences associate professor, and meteorology professor David Karoly.
