Um.... Here's an update on that "ice-free" Arctic Ocean prediction.:

December 15, 2009

"Inconvenient truth for Al Gore as his North Pole sums don't add up"

"There are many kinds of truth. Al Gore was poleaxed by an inconvenient one yesterday.

The former US Vice-President, who became an unlikely figurehead for the green movement after narrating the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, became entangled in a new climate change “spin” row.

Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.

In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference:“These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.”

However, the climatologist whose work Mr Gore was relying upon dropped the former Vice-President in the water with an icy blast.

“It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr Maslowski said.“I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”

Mr Gore’s office later admitted that the 75 per cent figure was one used by Dr Maslowksi as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Mr Gore.

The embarrassing error cast another shadow over the conference after the controversy over the hacked e-mails from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, which appeared to suggest that scientists had manipulated data to strengthen their argument that human activities were causing global warming."

Is Gore the love child of Roseanne and Frankenstein? He sure seems like a giant fruity pants zombie.

gore & obama's LIES continue!

the polar caps have been tropical zones at least 14 times throughout earth's history - a known fact!

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MANMADE GLOBAL WARMING!

jimmy carter and his dumbocrats were proved wrong with their global freezing HOAX some 30 years ago!

sure there is pollution out there - but there is NO evidence at all of manmade global warming! and with the earth's temps lowering for the past 5 years, it is further evidence that gore & obama have LIED through their teeth for political & financial gains!!!!!!

The polar ice caps are melting. But has nothing to do with human polution, and there is nothing we can do about it.

Hmmm, polar ice disappearing.... ask the boys on 'Deadliest Catch' about that one. They fight that non-existent ice every winter. But now AlGore (think Theodore Chipmunk) has a new slogan to drum-beat with so he can avoid getting an HONEST job that requires sweat, dirt and effort. Man, what these loons won't do to avoid a real job.......

Its all a cycle the world has gone thru many many many many times over the last billion years or so. man had nothing to do with it and man can do nothing about it. So yes dont dumb toxic waste yes dont throw garbage all over yes dont waste massively.. but dont force businesses or people to bend over backwards and spend more money to try to do soemthing we cant fix. that will run its course. my brother 20 years ago took a cruise now last year he took a cruise around alaska and yes ice cap is melting but its no big deal.

Gore went on to say "if people don't start buying my carbon credits, Godzilla will break out of the ice, and attack Japan". He then had scientist show a film of the last time Godzilla attacked Japan when the ice caps melted. The scientist assured every one the film is real, and staked their reputation on it.

I heard at the end of the Copenhagen thing, Al Mediawhore got a phone call, apparently it was Santa Clause calling. I guess he's really pissed off and told Gore that he had better hurry and save the world from GW because it was getting harder and harder to hide his workshop and toy factory with all the polar ice melting.

Now you know there's a "real" problem when you got Santa bitching at you...

Santa's been ticked off at Al Gore for all his lying since he was five. You should of seen Ol' Saint Nick when he got the letter from Gore saying how good John Edwards was, and can you give him a case of breck shampoo for Christmas. The only thing dropped from the sleigh that year came from the reigndeers.
