What is phenomenal is that he made a fortune off of his WRONG theories while he should have world wide scorn.
Currently -5 at North Pole, Alaska.
Well, in a way not intended, Gore was right. The Artic is “ICE-Free” if you mean no Ice-T, No “Ice, Ice, Baby” (Vanilla Ice), no Ice-Cube, no Katherine Sebelius (Miss “Cold as Ice” of 2013), Dr. Zeke Emanuel, a man with a heart of ICE, and Obama, a president with his brain on Ice”.
I sincerely hope the cooling trend doesn’t continue but there is nothing any of us can do about it. All 7 billion of us bending our backs and minds together wouldn’t change a thing.
To #41. Bernie Madoff is jealous as hell of Gore’s con artist success. Bernie’s in jail and Gore is free. There is no justice in the real world.
Gore is not just rich off his global warming scam. He is filthy rich from it and the party of big government and crony capitalist with leftist friends have benefitted as well.
I love the old Gore quotes. Someone linked a website with unfulfilled predictions and quotes from his book Earth in the Balance a few months ago. It was eye opening.
Don’t forget the financial support from good old Armand and Occidental Oil.
It snowed today here in Chi area. Snow is better than bitter cold, a few days ago it was frigid, I got mild frostnip on my fingers. It never seems to snow when it’s that cold.
I have no idea what the weather is like in CT, you may want to check http://www.accuweather.com
I would recommend you sit on your @$$ and watch fool’s ball.
Back in the 70’s (with global cooling all the rage) some “experts” proposed covering the ice sheet with soot to darken it to absorb the heat. It’s worth a try! What could go wrong!!??
I imagine the cooling trend will continue, and I hope that it will cycle up and get warmer again as it has in the past. What IS a bit on the scary side is that we are near (or past) that time in former cycles when a true “Ice Age” has hit in the past. And more evidence mounts that the change can be very rapid (months to years) rather than decades.
You guys need to cut the Bone Head a little slack ... cause he was real busy
on other matters and thus somewhat distracted at the time!
I know and the glacial period of an ice age (actually we’re in an ice age now it’s just the inter-glacial period) typically lasts about 90k years. Where I sit now had a three mile thick cap of ice on it during the last glacial period.
It's what Dems/Marxists/progressives do.
As Ann Coulter once observed, (paraphrasing) lying is a sporting event to them.
Gore made the ice free prediction in multiple years.
Gore made a lot of money off that lie... Fooled lots of liberal elites...
Luckily, he was there on the spot, and killed Man-Bear-Pig before he could do the dastardly deed.
Remember when Ted Danson said we only had ten years left? It’s been more than ten years...
Indeed; there is always the chance that something major happens in the remaining 15 days of the year, and all the ice disappears :-)
The truth is, global temperatures fluctuate regularly, like stock, index bond and commodity trading charts. Sometimes it is trending up, and sometimes down, but to assume that it will continue in the same direction indefinitely is folly. The global warming and ‘70s-new-ice-age people committed that folly regularly, and the MSM goes along with it because they are mindless lemmings.
