The one that I’ve been trying to find is where Al Gore was saying that the North Polar Ice Cap would be totally gone in 5 years.

There was another Gore video I want to capture where the idiot said that the center of the earth was tens of millions of degrees...

He must have been in the bathroom because of too much iced tea when the temp of the core of the earth was discussed in his geology class.

AlGore also once said that the term “Good enough for government work” was a statment of praise about the high quality and workmanship of something.

I think his handlers quickly told him never to say that again and explained that ‘good enough for govt. work’ really meant any old piece of crap thrown together which can then be sold to government at 10 times the cost.

FYI...
Gore (Dec 14, 2008) address in Germany, recorded from German TV

The Goracle made the same prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North Polarized cap will disappear in 5 years.”

The Sunday Times – Dec 15, 2009
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.....................................”
