Gore is indeed skating on thick ice - the ice sheet is hitting the fan.
I follow this topic far closer than most. It’s not just the science and junk science that is fascinating - it is the religious dogma that global warming has become for seemingly intelligent people.
There have been numerous articles recently that appear to point to the obvious culprit for temperature variance (the sun) and the devout seem to admit the role of the sun, yet they don’t change their minds. This news is fascinating because this shelf on the Antarctic is the one most often pointed to as evidence of warming due to ice activity, yet here we learn there are active volcanoes (a major source of heat and gas) underneath this portion of the ice sheet when someone actually looked.
This seems to be a pretty logical reason ice behavior would be different in that particular spot, yet it won’t change their narrative. They are the modern version of the flat-earth society.
