SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY… Al Gore Predicted North Pole Would Be Ice Free in Five Years

Al Gore predicted the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years. Gore made the prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”

“Five Years”

This wasn’t the only 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 by now.

Junk scientist Al Gore also made the same prediction 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.

Today Cairo had its first snowfall in 100 years.

Ed Driscoll found the original Gore video from 2008.

    I’m still waiting to see just exactly where Al Bore (oops, Gore) got his degree in science . . . or even took a single university level class.

  • Dale

    Count your blessings. Al Gore almost became POTUS.

    The original hypothesis said rising CO2 will warm the polar regions.
    Then they said CO2 is the main driver of global warming.
    Then they said CO2 is the main driver of climate change.
    Then they said CO2 is the main driver of weather.
    Then they said CO2 is the main driver of extreme weather.
    Now they say CO2 is the biggest, imminent threat to life on the planet.
    And the latest: CO2 causes terrorism.
    All predictions have proven false — runaway higher temps, no more snow storms, no more cold winters, flooding coastlines, more hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, floods, famine, locusts….

    There’s been no global warming for 18 yrs, 9 months now. If climate change is caused by global warming, their entire hypothesis is bogus. IT’S NOT CO2!!!

    All these climate hustlers are libturds that have glommed on to another scam that will reap untold riches for them while the rest of us languish in what’s left of the free enterprise economy that they have destroyed. Their quest is to enrich themselves beyond their wildest dreams at the expense of the people that elected them. Their promises are actually lies to cover up their real intentions, to defraud the American economy and the working people on a scale never seen before. The big problem here is that there’s more than enough suckers around these days that believe this quackery and have fallen for the lies and the junk science. No doubt there will be many unforeseen problems that will manifest as time goes on and the real reasons slowly come to light about this massive fraud.

  • physicsnut

    here is some real terrorism – from the usual jerks.

    HUFFINGTON-POS has a “blueprint for a carbon free world”
    just that it will COST 359 TRILLION DOLLARS by 2050 and more after that !!! And you think Republicans are nuts.

    but they aren’t done yet- Gloria Steinem says to “… raise our sons more like our daughters.”
    i suppose – now that medicare pays for sex change operations.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Maybe he meant ‘free ice’.

  • pugly

    At least Bore isn’t muslim. He would have screwed us just the same but I doubt he would have imported muslims to fundamentally transform the US.

  • Poseidon

    Steinem would love this: give a boy a Barbie Doll and what’s the first he does? When alone, he strips her naked to check her anatomy. Then he pulls on her legs and arms and twists her head in circles.

  • pugly

    Where? Why, the internet which he invented of course.

  • Bubba Gump

    Has nothing to do with Climate Change. This is about Our Pal Al extorting money out of the average citizen on a grander scale than when he was in politics.

  • Scott

    Let’s not forget Algore’s appearance on Conan OBrian where he stated condescendingly that the Earth is “millions of degrees hot just beneath the surface.”

    Such an idiot.

  • cplmayhem

    A sane person knows CO2 is vital for all plant life.Photosynthesis uses carbon dioxide and water to produce sugars from which other organic compounds can be constructed, and OXYGEN is produced as a by-product.Yes OXYGEN!! So these Fraudsters are Anti-Oxygen.

  • bill_a_bob

    If we still have the airlift capacity, we should put Al in a speedo and a kayak and drop him off at the North Pole to navigate the northwest passage back to one of the US coasts. Bon voyage fat man!

  • bill_a_bob

    Tipper was the only one to leave the Clinton Administration without a grift but she did get half of ole Al’s money and a 19 year old cabana boy to go with the house in Malibu.

    On January 2006, Gore said in ten years the earth was going to cook. Rush started a countdown clock on the day Gore said that…the count is presently 44 days left.

    And he took everything he could carry to the bank…..and now Obama is heading the same way…..robbing the American middle class …….filthy traitors

  • Poseidon

    Yep, they say CO2 is poison. By their thinking, oxygen is poison too. And H2O. Man’s contribution of CO2 is very small and CO2 is a minor GHG and comprises only about 0.04% of air. Most CO2 is produced by normal biologic activity and decaying matter. Most CO2 is consumed by phytoplankton near the ocean surface.

    Clearly, liberals made a big scientific mistake, for political purposes, to choose CO2 as the main culprit. They knew it would be great to control CO2 in order to control fossil fuels in order to control the masses. If only they had chosen water vapor…, but it’s too late now.

  • Right wing

    Al Gore, who got a “D” in the basic science course he took in college, predicting that he could make millions by frightening people, especially college students, into believing a lie. He has seen his wealth increase exponentially, as has his weight, as he flies around on private jets and lives large in his multiple mansions. What idiots would believe anything that comes out of his mouth?

  • Money laundering, libtard style. The libby Green Energy scam had 1 flaw… you actually had to manufacture a product, which gives you a time limit for sucking up funds. Climate Change? Nope. No product, no proof, no time limit… just an endless pouring of global tax dollars into liberal pockets, for bogus programs… forever. The ultimate libby slush fund.

  • Right wing

    All the colleges and universities that taught the impressionable students about the “threat” of global warming should loose their public funding. Institutions of higher learning that were just institutions of indoctrination of a political shakedown of the American people, who have vastly funded this stupidity without consent, are as guilty as Gore.

  • JY1

    Could be that Algore was counting on the water from the raised sea levels to cover up all that ice and make us think it was gone…

    ‘Cause Algore is brilliant with all that science stuff. They even gave him one of those Nobely things to prove it.

  • Right wing

    Wait twenty – thirty years.

  • Right wing

    He got a “D” in the basic science course he took. Pretty funny, huh?

    Are you sure? Gore is a leftist and quite capable of screwing the US at the drop of a hat.

    Name one accurate climate prediction that came true from any of these loons!

    Dont expect the truth for the likes of liberals. All al s interested in is taxing the AmeriKn public & lining his pockets by doing so.

    Three Questions Congress should ask Al Gore under oath:

    1. How wealthy are you?
    2. What did you do to earn that money?
    3. Who paid you that money?

    Cairo had its first snowfall in 100 years? Time to dust their PREVIOUS attempts at Government takeover of the global economy off then; after all, the millenials won’t remember it was used before…

    “To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs
    of fundamental changes in the world’s weather. The central fact is that after
    three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earth’s
    climate seems to be cooling down. Meteorologists disagree about the cause and
    extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local
    weather conditions. But they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend
    will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century. If the
    climatic change is as profound as some of the pessimists fear, the resulting
    famines could be catastrophic. “A major climatic change would force economic and
    social adjustments on a worldwide scale,” warns a recent report by the National
    Academy of Sciences, “because the global patterns of food production and
    population that have evolved are implicitly dependent on the climate of the
    present century.”

    Oh Noes! The Earth is cooling! Let’s get the climatologists to tell us what to do…

    “Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive
    action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They
    concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting
    the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers,
    might create problems far greater than those they solve. But the scientists see
    few signs that government leaders anywhere are even prepared to take the simple
    measures of stockpiling food or of introducing the variables of climatic
    uncertainty into economic projections of future food supplies. The longer the
    planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic
    change once the results become grim reality.”

    “The Cooling World”

    Newsweek, April 28, 1975

    Huh, shame we didn’t do what the “climatologist” wanted us to do with the soot back then, huh? Maybe Al’s fantasy of no “polarized” cap would be true today…

  • guessed

    “Al Gore, who got a “D” in the basic science course he took in college, predicting that he could make millions by frightening people, especially college students, into believing a lie”
    Well, THAT worked like a treat, but considering the modern college student is taught more about the ins and outs of anal sex than anything actually useful, it wasn’t exactly like he was playing against the varsity debate teams of yore…

    I watched the fellow who thinks he found Eden in Iran (formerly called Dillon by the Sumerians) and he figured out the whole area flooded over 10,000 years ago and is now underwater.

    Too bad the DUMB democrats didn’t get there first to SAVE THEM. They could have stuck their greasy little fingers in the dike (sounds about right).

    Really, it has nothing to do with climate change it’s just the democrat LIARS DARK DARK AGES.

  • democrat CockRoach

    If the democrat DUMB IDIOTS really think they will save New Orleans that’s a total SCREAM.

    Meanwhile, Detroit is FULLY above water and the democrats totally TRASHED that. They’re really quite INCAPABLE of saving anything.

    Hey democrat LOSERS stop building your homes on mud slides in CA and expecting the REST of us to pay for your dumb behinds.

    We get all our heat from the sun (geothermal is negligible) and they’ll disregard that when it becomes clear global temps correlate with solar cycles. If only they could control the sun and somehow use that theory to control the masses.

    when the levee broke Canal street never even got wet. It was all the denizens of the Free Stuff Army wards living below sea level that got flooded.

  • chuck_in_st_paul

    the Med DID flood way back when. Some sort of dam blocked the ocean and pretty much all the Med dried up. Then the dam broke and flooded it back to today’s level. There’s some interesting archaeology going on now that we’ve got ROV’s and side scan sonar and such.

    Go easy on Al. He was reading his Junior Chipmunk Handbook and having a big cup of Miracle-Gro and suddenly went temporarily psychotic.

    Al must be running low on cash again, getting all giddy with the ridiculous Global Warming AKA Climate Change AKA Climate Disruption AKA (insert BS here) Agreement Hussein Obama signed.

    Al Gore exemplifies everything that Liberals portend to disdain. Here is a guy who was worth 2 Million Dollars when he left office in 2001. Now he is worth 300 Million. He also holds the distinction of being the only Vice President in history to broker a sale of U.S. Federal land to a foreign Government (Chinese; Long Beach, 1997).

  • jainphx

    Oh now you’re asking for way to much. If they did that their shares in the whole scam would diminish!

  • jainphx

    Funny thing is if you look at these people, I mean who they are, their the same ones who in late sixties and early seventies, claimed a new ice age was coming. Couldn’t divert much tax money into that scam, so they had to go opposite.

  • Right wing

    Good one! Thanks.

    “Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday the climate agreement reached this week in Paris did not contain any enforcement provisions because Congress would not have approved them.

    “It doesn’t have mandatory targets for reduction and it doesn’t have an enforcement, compliance mechanism,” Kerry said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

    Kerry said such mechanisms were not included because Congress would have refused to greenlight the deal.

    Binding legal requirements would have made the Paris agreement a treaty, requiring approval from two-thirds of the Senate. Because no climate change measure could close to the high bar in the chamber, the Paris deal was written to avoid it. ” Quoted from Washington Examiner

    So, there we have it. A TOOTHLESS piece of paper that NO ONE is obliged to follow. Because a legally binding document is not able to pass muster, we will just make up stuff and call it solved. A perfect example of why Liberalism is a mental disorder.

  • ohio granny
