In case you didn’t hear about this already, by next year the North Pole will be completely ice free.
Junk scientist and frozen snake oil salesman Al Gore predicted this in 2009:
From the video:
Former Vice President Al Gore references computer modeling to suggest that the north polar ice cap may lose virtually all of its ice within the next seven years. “Some of the models suggest that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during some of the summer months, could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years,” says Gore.
The Goracle made the same prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North Polarized cap will disappear in 5 years.”
But, now there’s this…
Scientists announced this week that the disappearance of the Arctic sea ice may be exaggerated.
Scientists say current concerns over a tipping point in the disappearance of Arctic sea ice may be misplaced.
Danish researchers analysed ancient pieces of driftwood in north Greenland which they say is an accurate way to measure the extent of ancient ice loss.
Writing in the journal Science, the team found evidence that ice levels were about 50% lower 5,000 years ago.
They say changes to wind systems can slow down the rate of melting.
They argue, therefore, that a tipping point under current scenarios is unlikely.
Isn’t it about time this huckster returned his peace prize?
