Al Gore Worse Than We Thought February 12, 2010 : 7:08 PM http://blog.algore.com http://blog.algore.com/2010/02/worse_than_we_thought.html
More evidence of the climate crisis is unfolding before our eyes. The situation in the Arctic is worse than data from satellite pictures have told us:
"For scientists studying the health of Arctic sea ice, satellite observations are absolutely essential for providing the big picture. It was satellites that revealed in September 2007 a record minimum ice coverage in the region -- the result of a massive summer melt. And it was satellites that showed in 2008 and 2009 the modest recovery of late-summer Arctic ice that suggested to some that the specter of a totally ice-free polar ocean might be somewhat less imminent than feared."
"But those high-altitude observations need occasional reality checks from scientists down on the surface. It was during one such on-the-ground research expedition last fall that David Barber, an Arctic climatologist at the University of Manitoba, got an unwelcome surprise."
"Barber was aboard the Canadian research icebreaker Amundsen, checking on ice in the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska and Western Canada. The ship was well inside a region the satellites said should be choked with thick, multiyear-old ice. "That's pretty much a no-go zone for an icebreaker of the Amundsen's size," says Barber. But the ship kept going, at a brisk 13 knots -- its top speed in open water is 13.7 knots -- and even when it finally reached thick ice, he says, "we could still penetrate it easily.""
"In short, as Barber and his colleagues explain in a recent paper in Geophysical Review Letters, the analysis of what the satellites were seeing was wrong. Some of what satellites identified as thick, melt-resistant multiyear ice turned out to be, in Barber's words, "full of holes, like Swiss cheese. We haven't seen this sort of thing before.""
And perhaps Al could examine the records of Scandinavian explorers over the past millenium, and get some quotes from them about the amount of sea ice in the Artic.
You cant blame the fat fraud for trying to milk a few more dollars out of his scam. It made him a billionaire already, but people are seeing thru it now. We are so lucky that Algore didn’t manage to steal the presidency in 2000.
Oh brother, where are the men in white coats with the straight jacket???
Al Gore is worse than we thought.
I thank God everyday that those emails were leaked. I don’t know who did it, or why, but, God bless you, where ever you are!!!
I hope he invested everything in the scam and goes bankrupt.
I dunno. Given the current regime.
I wonder though... is it worse to have a President who actually believes this AGW nonsense (Al Gore)? Or is it worse to have a President who isn't stupid enough to believe it, or is surrounded by parties who don't believe it, but who (as tyrants do) exploit the belief for political gain?
Correction: “GoreBull Warming”
I am sick of freezing this Winter. Snow and ice, picked over store shelves, being at risk for being snowed or iced in at work. Sick of it! Bring on the damn global warming already!
I still hate you ALgore. President Bush may not have been perfect but thank God we were spared the likes of you.
Right.... Weekly World News science at best!
If it was caused by global warming, or warming of any kind, they most certainly would have seen this before, further South. To say it's a totally new phenomenom would not indicate it came from warming. Every Spring it gets warm enough to melt ice. We'd see this every year.
As Bogey says in Maltese Falcon, “The cheaper the hood, the gaudier the patter.”
So, he comes out of his hole, sees his shadow, and announced six more years of global warming...
Ain’t too many tree rings in that stump on his shoulders.
With Al Gore in for 8 years and then Obama we would be in a depression
Wow! A whole 50 years of data!
It's actually several THOUSAND as any high school kid knows!
