Skip to comments.Gore Gone Wild: Predicts 220 Foot Sea Level Rise in 10 years

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. Thats up a full 47 meters from the already horrifying predictions hes 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 anybodys 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 wont be easy, what with much of the planet underwater and its entire population -- which Gores 6.7 billion amounts to -- vying for whatever dry land remains available.
But before we pack our tents, inflatable rafts, and foreign-language dictionaries, lets take a closer look at the green Stephen Kings figures.

Put this POS in a nut house and throw away the key already!
Man he be smoking the good stuff
Oral Roberts tells of talking to 900-foot Jesus....
Failed/flunk out divinity student, Algore says....
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?
220 feet??? Albore doesn’t know much about math.
According to Rush’s site, we have a little over 6 years before the world ends, according to algore.
Who cares? Obama and his band of idiots are gonna sink this country long before this can happen.
Hurry Al. You don’t have much time left before the blizzards, snow (and even a severe chill on the left coast) render you completely INSANE.
He obviously has not contemplated Archimedes.
Gore finally got around to seeing Waterworld.
ROARING LAUGHTER COMING FROM THIS HOUSE! Al... go have a burger, take an anti bloating medication...because you are bloated beyond belief! Call us in the morning, we’ll go to Waffle House for breakfast.
Algore didn't take Physics 101. He was too busy inventing the Internet.
He's a great big giant fat trust fund baby, legislator by legacy that needs to just STFU and go away.
Imagine, all the iced tea flooding your home. Only in Algores dreams.
he’s moving the goal post. I thought we have til 2012
