Al Gore Fudges More Global Warming Numbers

Al Gore, fresh off denying the Climategate emails made any difference, was out hawking more doom and gloom for the world because of global warming. Gore was talking about the polar ice cap on the North Pole and he said that there was a 75% chance that the cap would be gone in 5 to 7 years:

In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.” Times Online UK

Now keep in mind that these are fresh figures. The numbers are just in. This is hot, hot, hot! We have new numbers and there is a 75% chance the north polar ice cap will be gone in 5 to 7 years.

The only problem is that the scientist Gore mentioned says that he does not know where Gore got those numbers and that he [Dr. Maslowski] would not make that kind of prediction.

Gore backtracked on the issue by admitting that the 75% came from a ballpark figure that Maslowski used several years ago.

The numbers are FRESH but he got them several years ago.

This just shows that Gore will say anything to push his agenda. He told us the numbers were fresh but he did not just get them so he deliberately misled people when he said it. He is no different than the scientists who cooked the books on the whole global warming issue.

Gore is hyping global warming so he can make money off it. He will say and do anything in order to sell his product and he has little regard for opposing opinion or, apparently, the truth.

Hey Al, take a look at the south polar cap. I believe it is getting bigger.

    Maybe you can go into detail about how he can make money this way.

    “Hey Al, take a look at the south polar cap. I believe it is getting bigger.”

    Scientists believe conditions in Antarctica are due to wind and ozone layer differences. Scientists have puzzled over the differences in the poles for some time but are starting to see the affects of warming even in the South despite the ice growth.

      Of course Adam, the shrinking ice cap — global warming, the growing ice cap — global warming. Is there anything that is not caused by global warming? Fail a test — global warming. Have a car accident — global warming. Get pregnant — you guessed it, global warming.

      It can’t be both ways.

      Gore is heavily vested in alternate fuels and carbon offsets. The more people buy into this the more he makes. Cap and trade will make him a much richer man.

      The LA Dodgers did not win the World Series this year — global warming….

        I did not say the ice cap growing was because of global warming, so instead of the sarcasm maybe try reading the article I cited.

        Do you believe Al Gore is currently getting rich off this or just will in the future?

          Both, Adam- he has stock options in several “green” companies, and it is in his interest to hype this “un-settled” science, indeed to outright lie (which he does so well because of that wooden expression)- but as I have said before, climate changes, and does so naturally- and CO2 is not a poison gas- so the EPA can get out of my air, and get out of my water, and anything else they want to control.

      Exactly right. See also:

      Putting the recent Antarctic snowmelt minimum into context

      Excerpt:

      “Our results agree with studies that have noted cooling and/or slower warming during the past three decades due to increasing SAM trends over the same period. Additionally, our conclusions do not contradict findings showing strong regional warming on the Antarctic Peninsula and in West Antarctica for the past 50 years, and warming over the entire continent for the past century. Our record is limited to the satellite era only, during which ozone depletion has dominated Antarctic summer temperature trends, and as already noted above, the observed warming in the last 50-100 years has occurred mostly in winter and spring. This context is important.”

      “This paper by Pritchard et al (Nature, v461, pp971 et seq.) shows how the rate of thinning has increased in both Greenland and Antarctica.”

        The rate of thinning in my hairline must be due to GW also, right? Oh, we people are just SO bad- its all our fault- we should just kill everybody- that would make everything right- and then it would truly be settled science, right?
        Come on- even the dipwad moron on the streetcorner knows better than the Goracle- the icecaps thin, and thicken on a schedule we haven’t yet figured out, but it’s not necessarily strictly because of man, or there would have been no race in the 1400- 1600s to find a “Northwest Passage” to the orient for spices and riches.
        Oh and the Polar Bear? If the bear becomes extinct, there would be exactly no, (zero) ill effects from that extinction- the bear is not a key species- very few predators truly are, including man.
