Gore Gone Wild: Predicts 220 Foot Sea Level Rise in 10 years
americanthinker.com ^ | Oct. 30, 2009 | Marc Sheppard

Posted on 10/30/2009 7:26:28 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

The scariest story told this Halloween week had nothing to do with ghosts, goblins, or zombies, though it was certainly dripping with huge gobs of Gore. In fact -- the most terrifying words screeched in the past seven days came from the master of environmental horror himself.

According to Arab Internet services company Maktoob.com, our favorite greenhouse gasbag spent Tuesday afternoon outlining the reasons why attendees of the Leaders in Dubai Business Forum must change their wicked gas-guzzling ways:

“The North Pole ice cap is 40 percent gone already and could be completely and totally gone in the winter months in the next 5 to 10 years.”

Such thaw, cautioned Gore, “could increase sea levels by 67 metres” and that “each one metre of sea level rise (SLR) is associated with 100 million climate refugees in the world.” That’s up a full 47 meters from the already horrifying predictions he’s made previously.

Incidentally, a climate refugee (or “environmentally induced migrant” as the UN would prefer we refer to them) is a person forced to move to a new country by global warming related environmental disasters. Where the whacky climate refugees per meter SLR figure came from is anybody’s guess.

Anyway, if my math is correct, the 2007 Nobel laureate effectively predicted that by 2020, the oceans could rise 220 feet and 6,700,000,000 people will be forced to wander the planet in search of a less soggy domicile.

And the journey won’t be easy, what with much of the planet underwater and its entire population -- which Gore’s 6.7 billion amounts to -- vying for whatever dry land remains available.

But before we pack our tents, inflatable rafts, and foreign-language dictionaries, let’s take a closer look at the green Stephen King’s figures.

The debate actually is over…and the idea that human emissions of carbon dioxide will cause any significant degree of global warming has been categorically refuted and falsified. The empirically-measured change in the amount of energy radiating away from the Earth as a function of changes in sea surface temperature totally falsifies the IPCC climate models--and more importantly, completely falsifies the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis—total, categorical falsification, not simply invalidation of the alleged "proof" based on computer climate models: Categorical falsification of "greenhouse gas" AGW hypothesis

Archimedes proved that an object displaces its mass in water if it is less dense that water and its volume if it is more dense. As ice is less dense it will displace its mass which being water will not cause a change in sea level if it melts. This is something learned in Physics 101

How does the thawing of ice that floats on water affect sea levels in any way?

...and the north pole caps being gone in Winter? Does he have any idea how nutty that is?

It doesn't. Did you ever sit on the deck with a glass of ice water? As the ice melts the level of the water does not change. To call Al Gore an idiot is doing him a kindness.

Thats true for sea ice. Not so for the Greenland or Antarctic ice caps. That ice is not floating on water, therefore if it melts ( a gigantic if) then sea levels would indeed rise.

But Gore is talking about the north ice cap which would do nothing to sea level. Also it would take a lot of energy to melt all the ice in Greenland.

Stop thinking. AlGore has proven that people who think breath out more CO2 than those who don't, and thus the ice caps will melt even faster! Just send Al your donation and shut up!

"Gore finally got around to seeing Waterworld."

I think he saw the first release and bases his conclusions on it. All joking aside Al has tons of cash in the cap and trade business. If we don't buy his BS he may have to downscale his house. I hope the turd goes broke.

Is Kevin Costner and Waterworld at the Blockbuster Video? I need to start studying how to survive in a wrold covered with water. I thought the Arctic sea ice was just that SEA ICE. It floats on top of the sea and when it melts, it does not raise the level a bit. Of course Al Gore never lets ‘inconvenient’ facts gets in the way of a good story.

But that salt still has to be somewhere. If not actually in the snow and ice itself it will be in the ocean. Thus the overall mass and volume of the ocean water should not change.

As Gore has revised his climatic numbers over time, he has also expanded his own measurements, which can tend to heat a body up. Maybe this is Gore’s version of “is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?”
