Another Blow to Al Gore: Scientists Say the Arctic Tipping Point May Not Be Reached

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.”

Gore has been making this dire warning since 2007.

But, now there’s this…
Scientists announced this week that the disappearance of the Arctic sea ice may be exaggerated.
Ya think?
BBC reported:

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?

    maybe the men in white coats need to put him away

    “Isn’t it about time this huckster returned his peace prize?”

    No! We want his 2007 prize to be a permanent reminder of how much of a joke the Nobel Peace Prize has become. (And we also want to be reminded that the IPPC and Al Gore did NOT get the Nobel prize in physics…LOL!)

    Driftwood? Al Gore is an idiot but driftwood? You’re punching downward and it undermines your credibility.

    But has Algore’s tipping point been reached? Only he and his bathroom scale know for sure.

  • rbosque

    Dumb ass! My old biology professor was a Gore-lemming, I fought with him because he kept pushing this BS WITHOUT applying the scientific method he taught.

    Well guess what? HE WAS / IS FULL OF CRAP!

    I was right.

    It’s the AUDIENCE that’s the problem, not Gore. He’s parsed it perfectly. Some lawyer helped him, no doubt. IN five years, during SOME SUMMER months, the ice will be completely gone.
    WEll, duh. AS it does EVERY SUMMER.

    How does it go from a carefully constucted factual statement to making that illogical leap to thinking the ice cap is going to melt and stay melted?

    People who have been in the corrupted AMerican Education for the past twenty years and learned NOTHING about ANYTHING, that’s how it goes.

    SO WHAT if the ice cap melts in SUMMER? It’s -80 F the rest of the time. Heat it up 5 degrees, whoo-hoo, it’s -75F, heat it up 20 degrees and it’ll still freeze you solid as a popsicle in ten minutes flat. THe North Pole freezes an unfreezes every year and no rise or lowering of sea levels, how about that? No one’s heard of “displacement” either.

    People do not KNOW this, they know Britney Spear’s latest stupid outfit, but they don’t know it’s IMPOSSIBLE for the poles to ever melt away unless we have an entire planetary shift and the poles suddenly become our new equator.

    Al Gore’s tipping point may be irrelevant even if reached. Arctic ice cover is a flawed benchmark for AGW according to a couple recent reports at Science Daily News. With no help from man, Arctic ice 5000+ years ago was less than half of what it is now. Also, wind reduces the % coverage by driving large masses from the main ice cap down past Greenland.

    Al Gore did not claim “the entire North polarized cap” will disappear. It’s disappointing to see such a phrase, as there’s no such thing as a polarized cap, at least not at the North or South poles of the Earth, and any native speaker of English ought to know this. The phrase in question is “polar ice cap”.

    Please, Jim, up your game.

    And don’t forget, his wife dumped him like yesterday’s garbage lol

    Algore will find things well-thawed out in his future eternal abode. I hope he’ll be real happy with himself, then.

  • Estragon

    Al Gore is the kid from the neighborhood who really, really tries but just can’t keep up with his age group mentally or physically, the one who overcompensates by trying to become the best at something, even if it’s something odd or lacking popularity, just so he can be the best at something. But he never quite makes it, and always ends up embarrassing himself.

    You almost want to feel sorry for him, until you remember the Google guys gave him nearly half a billion dollars worth of stock options for just being that wacky guy who invented the internet. Then you just say, “Rock on, Dufus!”

    How arrogant are liberals? When reality doesn’t match their models, they declare that reality is incorrect.

    i know all i need to know about fat albert. left washington with the change in his pocket and now he’s close to being a billionaire – not on the creative genius of hard work and innovation but rather on a whole lot of hot air and bs. a fool and his money are soon parted. al gore is nothing more than an educated thief – not really much different from the street hood who will knock you down and take your wallet.

  • Cat lady

    And just think but for the grace of God that man would have been our President!!!

    if you can’t dazzle them with your brilliance – baffle them with your bs.

  • a former dem

    I’ll admit I was one of those people who believed in global warming starting in 2006, I do believe there might be some climate change, but I’m not convinced its human’s fault, and more relevant I don’t think we should shackle our economy will more EPA nonsense to reduce .0001 of the CO2, while china, etc don’t care and keep expand their economies.

    Al gore, someone I voted for in 2000 is one of the biggest idiots have seen.

    Maybe a grizzly old polar bear would like a snack? Not to good, but sometimes you got take what you can get when you get old.

    Liberals have no tipping point , they’re crazy , stupid , con artist nitwits , 24 hours a day through out their whole miserable life.
