Al Gore Said North Pole Would Be Completely Melted This Year… Guess Not, Huh?

Junk scientist Al Gore predicted in 2009 that the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years.

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.”

This wasn’t the first time Gore made his ice-free prediction. Gore’s been predicting this since 2007. That means that this year the North Pole should be completely melted.

Now for a little reality via Small Dead Animals

Jan. 6, 2012: The Coast Guard Cutter Healy breaks ice around the Russian-flagged tanker Renda 250 miles south of Nome. The Healy is the Coast Guard’s only currently operating polar icebreaker. The vessels are transiting through ice up to five-feet thick in this area. The 370-foot tanker Renda will have to go through more than 300 miles of sea ice to get to Nome, a city of about 3,500 people on the western Alaska coastline that did not get its last pre-winter fuel delivery because of a massive storm.

Guess Gore was wrong, huh?

    The biggest fraud in contemporary American politics.

    And that’s saying something.

    The Alfred Wegener Institute, who do basically nothing else but observe and study the ice up there, has been reporting ice records for a few years now.

    No matter what the weather, too hot or too cold, too much snow or not enough, too much rain or too little, the true believers declaiming it is evidence of man-caused climate change, all thanks to manipulated data and biased computer modeling.

    As if that big burning yellowish object in the sky has nothing to do with the climate at all.

    The religious fervor shown by the AGW cultists in unproven “science” fraud is as ominous as that shown by any Jihadi.

    Al Gore, a failed politician, is revered as a true scientist.

    That should say it all, but sadly when faith over-rides reason this situation is the result.

  • Campfollower

    THANK YOU THANK YOU for highlighting this! Because of you bloggers, politicians aren’t going to feel quite as comfortable spewing their BS…keep up the good work!

    You have done a service to the Republic, Mr. Hoft.

    Hey, Al Gore claimed in an “experiment” last year that an atmosphere with 100% CO2 is the same as one with 0.039%.

    Guess he figured by then that he would have made all the money he would need for the rest of his life, by now. He prolly has, if he took good care of his Armand Hammer Trust Account.

    Al Gore should be sharing a cell with Bernie Madoff for his part in perpetuating the Gorebull Warming scam to bilk the public out of $billions.

  • Ausonius

    The deplorable nature of the msm becoming political undermines the entire concept of self-government in that it intentionally fails to inform the voters of facts. It amazes me that many still look to them for “news.”
    The snake oil selling charliton should have been immediately discredited and scorned when it was revealed he had financial interests in selling carbon credits.
    The environmentalists are, except a few useful idiots, totallitarians and neo-marxists.
    I despise their movement and respect no one who aligns with it.
    Don’t forget that our current #1 repub hopeful stated at one point he supported this and believed global warming to be real and man-caused. While he may have denounced it since, it still draws into question his judgement and reliability in future matters. It seems his patern is to have a record on many issues of supporting something then changing his mind, for whatever reason.

  • Granny

    Please, please, PLEASE do not apply the title “scientist” to Al Gore, a man who obviously has never taken a basic biology or chemistry class. It demeans those of us who have truly earned it.

  • FurryGuy

    One little fact that is not reported much is that the vaunted computer models can’t be used to even “predict” past weather. The slightest deviation on inputs, on the order of 0.00001% difference, result in vastly different outcomes. It was precisely the results of meteorologists trying to computer model the Earth’s weather systems that led to the discovery of the science of chaotic systems.

    I am simply amazed at the amount of people in this country that have no sort of intellectual curiousity whatsoever. Hopefully the tide is starting to turn.
    I take some of that back. I am simply amazed at the amount of “intellectuals” in this country that have no curiousity whatsoever. My grandfather who was a an eighth-grade dropout had more common sense and curiousity than these idiots.

    Guess Gore was wrong, huh?

    Is water wet?

  • exceller

    another epic fail for AlGore. fortunately the world seems to have largely caught on to the fact that Gore and his hysterical climate alarmist friends were simply trying to run the biggest con in the history of the world.

    Ruh- Roh! Looks like Rose has been snooping around into St. Albert’s shady benefactors. Can you spell “Occidental Petroleum”? I think you can! Keep following Al’s trail of crumbs and see where they lead. Here’s a hint: Try looking across the pond for the biggest fish.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    And all those chumps in Europe and North America who paid “carbon credits.” Fools. Absolute rubes.

  • Algore

    The science is settled, people. Has been for years. Polar bears are walking endless miles in search of open water, and there’s no more time for argument. Climate change/global warming deniers should not be given any voice any more. You stupid backwards anti-scientific neo-climes can keep on counting sunspots and studying your magic charts and radar and historical data mumbo-jumbo, but expect to be mocked by the real masters of climate science with our hockey sticks and tree ring data.
    Oh, and there’s still time to get your carbon credits before the price goes up.
