Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth: His Predicted Date Of Ice Cap Melt Is Marked by Polar Ice Growth
December 14, 2009, Al Gore gave that epic speech that said the Polar Ice Caps would be gone in five years. In the video below, it appears at close to the 2:15 mark. Gore stated,
“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.”
Al Gore strengthened his prediction to a German audience. In 2008, Gore stated, “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”
It seems the polar ice caps simply do not want to cooperate with Al Gore’s predictions. Indeed, ice cap behavior is totally reverse of what was predicted by Al Gore in 2009. On the anniversary of Al Gore’s prediction, the evidence is clear that he was not only wrong, but VERY wrong.
North Pole Evidence
The evidence for melting ice caps at the North Pole has completely evaporated. People can see what they want in photographs, but there is little interpretation needed in the one below. It is from 2012, but it shows a Russian vessel attempting to aid Alaska’s coastal communities with petroleum supplies. It also shows a vessel attempting to rescue that vessel. The ice cap doesn’t appear to be melting in the way predicted by Gore.
Polar ice experts often refer to the year of 2007 as the year of the great polar ice cap retreat. An examination of the data shows that if there is a retreat, it appears to be reversed. A comparison of ice sheet data from November 20, 2007 and November 20, 2013 shows that there has been a significant advance in the ice. Any interested reader can go to Cryosphere Today and make their own photo with any dates they choose, or watch the various animations of polar ice. While they attempt to make the case that the ice sheets are melting, even their own data shows that at best, they are holding, and a careful visual inspection will show the sheets are expanding. They also have a historical data set for researchers. Their own data shows the sheets at the north pole has grown dramatically.
Northern Hemisphere polar ice is in the final stages of a year marked by above-average global polar ice extent. Polar ice extent is a technical term for “expanding.”
South Pole Evidence
At the present time, it is summer at the south pole. The Australian Antarctic supply vessel, the icebreaker Aurora Australis, was trapped in the ice, after leaving Davis Station. The area is historically ice free in the summer. In fact, the ice sheet at the South Pole has set a new record in ice sheet growth in November 2013. Notice, this record was set in the summer months of Antarctica, not the winter, and in the same time frame Al Gore had predicted the melt of polar ice caps.
In addition to the growth in polar ice in Antarctica, researchers from NASA have shown that the temperatures have dropped to new record lows. As reported by Free Patriot earlier this week, the global warming advocates are attempting to dispute the data because it came from NASA sensors, not a thermometer. However, it is very clear that the new record low was recorded and broke several times since 1983.
This is not to mention the first snowfall in Egypt for 100 years happened to occur on the anniversary of this prediction.
Al Gore was wrong. The point of the lie was to gain control of the private sector and the means of production. It was to tell you what to produce, how to produce, and for whom. That is what climate change is about… another version of Marxism.
