Wrong: Al Gore Predicted Arctic Summer Ice Could Disappear In 2013

A 2007 prediction that summer in the North Pole could be “ice-free by 2013” that was cited by former Vice President Al Gore in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech has proven to be off… by 920,000 square miles.

EXPOSED: This is the denier beef, LOL.

Politicians such as Al Gore have often insisted that climate science is ‘settled’ and have accused those who question their forecasts of being climate change ‘deniers’.

Deniers are engaged in disruption of expected flow of science, alas. Of course, climate science is settled on AGW. As to forecasting, that's trial-and-error engineering of sort.

Why the denier darling Dr Curry never forecasts about the Arctic? She only second guesses afterwards when she has probably the longest track on the Arctic since her younger years, huh?

Which is old news.
Now to try and stay relevant its called global climate disruption.
Question.
In the history of science has their ever been a group that has changed the name of their cause as many times as the warmies. Global warming.Global climate change. Global climate disruption. What's next.
Here you will find listings of papers containing the phrase "climate change" going back to 1955:

http://www.skepticalscience.com/climate-chang...

Again, it was Republican Frank Luntz who advised his consultees to use the phrase "climate change" because it sounds less serious than the phrase "global warming". He dispensed that advice during the first Bush's administration, about the same time (1988) that the Intergovernmental Panel on CLIMATE CHANGE was formed.

Global climate disruption is just a more clarifying label for what we are in for with CLIMATE CHANGE brought on by GLOBAL WARMING.

I wonder if you have enough sense to feel like the fool that you are, now that you've been SCHOOLED about the history of the use of the phrase "CLIMATE CHANGE".

Ice melt may not be the worst effect people of the future will contend with. Pesticides have been overly used and the insects which pollinate are going extinct. Municipal water sources are being subjected to pesticide runoff as well as pharmaceuticals from sewage plants. A lot more problems than just global warming exists.

Yes, that is all true and we need to become aware of environmental concerns. Fertilizer runoff is also a concern. Lawn farmers in cities are responsible for pollution of the water from storm sewers. There is usually a trade off to technological solutions to food production. We must weigh the adverse effects along with the benefits. Also lawn farmers in cities are increasingly responsible for pollution of the water from storm sewers that runs into our streams.

That said, we cannot neglect one problem because another may seem more urgent. The problem is that there is no market force to control these environmental concerns. These factors must be enforced by public regulation. Public education of these concerns is vital. Unfortunately the vested interests have the ear of the law makers through lobbiests and campaign dowry's.

In specifics, certainly. Forecasts are never perfect. But in general the trends are just as bad or worse than first thought.

With the science against the faith it has so frantically promoted, the UN searches for someone who will turn the debate. Note well: it’s looking for someone who isn’t a scientist but who can play on guilt, racial politics, gender politics and victimhood:

The United Nations is looking for a young woman to, as BBC put it, be the ‘Malala’ of the climate change movement, serving as a voice that will energize this September’s climate change conference.

The organization has put out a call for a woman under 30 to speak at the opening session of the 2014 Climate Summit, which is being held on September 23 in New York City. The woman has to be from a developing country and must have a background that includes advocacy on climate change or work on implementing climate mitigation or adaptation solutions. So far, the call for applicants has drawn 544 women, who emailed short videos of themselves persuading world leaders to act on climate change to the Secretary-General’s office.

The UN has outed itself with this stunt. Its criteria ensure no leading climate scientists need apply. See, this is no longer about science at all.

Desperation is sinking in with the corrupt UN and you sheep are still falling for the scam.Dam where's Mother earth Gore when you need her?
ALL CREDIBILITY IS GONE WITH YOU WARMIST LOONS.
A scam can only be a scam for so long and your 15 minutes is up!!!!!!!!!!
