Well I've seen the Sun quite a few times at different times of day and its colour, as far as the eyes are concerned, varies, dependant on its position relative to the viewer.
That said, who gives a damn what colour it is?

Actually the sun emits the entire spectrum of visible light, thus it is technically white..

We should also thank Mr Gore for buying his multi-million dollar home on the beach where he can more closely monitor the rise of the ocean.
He is very brave!
