Al Gore's Admits His Ice Cap Predictions Were Bogus
Times of London/The Lid ^ | 12/14/09 | The Lid

Posted on 12/14/2009 6:55:05 PM PST by Shellybenoit

Former Vice President Al Gore made a startling announcement at the UN Climate Conference today:

New computer modeling suggests the Arctic Ocean may be nearly ice-free in the summertime as early as 2014, Al Gore said Monday at the U.N. climate conference. This new projection, following several years of dramatic retreat by polar sea ice, suggests that the ice cap may nearly vanish in the summer much sooner than the year 2030, as was forecast by a U.S. government agency eight months ago. "It is hard to capture the astonishment that the experts in the science of ice felt when they saw this," said former U.S. Vice President Gore, who joined Scandinavian officials and scientists to brief journalists and delegates. It was Gore's first appearance at the two-week conference.

There was one thing that Gore left out of his stunning statement, it was wrong !! So says the scientist who gave Gore the numbers. And while the Press is still reporting on Gore's stunning numbers, Gore's office admitted that the percentage he quoted in his speech was from an old, ballpark figure.

It always amazes me that an obvious certifiable moron and silly hoaxer like fat fool Gore is worshiped as a god.

Gore was a pothead who got “D’ grades and flunked out of Divinity School.

I mean, that is a breath-taking level of stupidity.

Gore’s M.O. is to throws verbal sh*t against the wall, and hopes some of sticks. Sometimes he fools the rubes, sometimes he doesn’t.

This information will not get out to the general public in America via the MSM. It will remain within the blogosphere, and known only to those of us that attend such internet sites as FR, and Yid with Lid, and of course to those readers in the UK that read the Times of London.

Is there somewhere we can go to bet these idiots that they are wrong? I’d love a nice nest egg for my retirement.

Being in wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen this week will turn out to have a chilling effect on the careers and reputations of all those who are attending the conference and spouting politically, but not scientifically correct clap trap.

Sort of reminds me of the night in the debate with Dubya and Gore when Gore hopped off the stool and sauntered over towards Dubya like he (Gore) was someone important and talking about Dingle/Norwood. Dubya just looked him up one side and down the other...then looked back at the audience and snickered with a look. It was priceless.
I will remember that moment for the rest of my life. I DO believe that was the defining moment. Sort of like Dukakis in the tank and Kerry on the sailboard or whatever it was calld and also coming out of that tube. Some things just can’t be made up.

And if all the Arctic Sea ice melted he and Arhnold said that San Francisco would be under water. Fill a glass with crushed ice fill the voids with water and tell me at what point the glass overflows, try it at home!

I hope Gore lives to be 150, just so he has to live with the humiliation of his fraudulant claims.

There is a 75 per cent chance that Al Gore, during the summer months, could be completely fact-free within five to seven years.

Being Algore means never having to say you’re sorry.

Yeah, Gore is kind of a maliciously greedy version of Chance the Gardner:
