Skip to comments.Billion people's water at risk from melting ice: Gore
Posted on 12/14/2009 10:30:34 AM PST by maggief
COPENHAGEN Climate guru Al Gore warned UN climate talks Monday that record melting of Polar and Himalayan ice could deprive deprive more than a billion people's access to clean water.
Adding to an avalanche of bad scientific news over the last two years, the former US vice president cited new research showing that the Arctic ice cap may have shrunk to record-low levels last year.
"2008 had a smaller minimum, probably, than 2007," Gore said at the release of a report he co-sponsored with the Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store, called Melting Snow and Ice: A call for Action.
"These figures are fresh, I just got them yesterday," Gore said, alluding to work led by Wieslaw Maslowski of the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.

If the ice doesn’t melt, they won’t have any water Al.
Hey Algore: As you said, the center of the earth is
millions of degrees—what do you expect, you total idiot.
There’s a butterfly net with Al’s name on it.
What an embarrassment to thinking people around the world. Could someone please put Algore on an ice flow an see if he melts?
I’ll steel a line from the FR Darwinists: You’re the type of wacko that makes conservatives look bad. I’m serious, that line get’s thrown around a bunch by those guys.
Anyway, do people take Algore serious anymore?
Ah yes, melting ice. Also known as "water."
what has melting polar ice to do with the water supply of a billion people??? Ok it´s not good because it raises the tide of the Ocean so for example the dutch may get wet feet in future ;-) but this has nothing to do with the general fresh water supply.
More like they were made up yesterday and have no connection to actual data or true scientific research.
Nothing like hyperbole to make your point. Why not add that “If the ice caps melt, then advanced civilazations from galaxies far away won’t be able to land their spacecraft.”
WE ARE DOOOOOOOOMED !
???? What the heck is he talking about?
Do those poor countries go to the poles for ice cubes?
Mother Nature doesn't respect our opinion....otherwise we would have had 5 more Katrina's by now.
Does Algore have a brain tumor?
That, and he is a second-rate scam artist that can survive because of the number of morons, dolts and fools that still exist on the face of this planet. To say nothing of the other scammers in academia, industry and the government that want some of the action too....($$$)
Uh, earth to AG: Figure four billion persons will starve to death during the next ice age. Also figure that ice age is the “normal” climate of the planet.
What are you doing about that, Al; hmmm?
