On December 13 & 14, 2009, professor, prophet, and soothsayer Al Gore predicted the North Polar Ice Cap could be completely ice free within the next five to 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,” Gore claimed.
“Join me in asking president Obama and the US Senate to set a deadline of 22 April for final action in the US Senate,” he said. “I do not believe we can wait till next November or December.”
The Guardian wrote on Dec 16, 2009 in an article entitled “Al Gore rallies the troops in Copenhagen“:
[Gore] kept up the pace by calling for the international community to sign up to a fully fledged climate change treaty by July 2010 – and then announcing that Mexico was prepared to host a deal-making summit.
He scolded rich countries for demanding the developing world offer evidence of emissions cuts while at the same time trying to inflate the funds they were prepared to offer poor countries to deal with climate change. And he was just as tough on activists who have embraced him as a hero, demanding they set aside their pride and their principles and embrace a deal – no matter how imperfect. He said he recognized their frustration with the glacial pace of negotiations. He agreed that cap-and-trade schemes to cut carbon emissions were an imperfect solution – Gore confessed to favoring a carbon tax – but the current efforts for a deal were the best prospect of avoiding catastrophic climate change.
And there was no trace of sympathy for opponents of action on climate change. Gore began with a brief run-through of the latest science on melting of the Arctic ice cap, evidence he said “only reckless fools would ignore.”
Well who’s the fool now:
The year 2020 is now all-but upon us, Al, and we have clear evidence that the ice at the poles is now not only not melting, it is in fact once again growing, in both thickness and extent (DMI).
But instead of graciously admitting defeat, the CAGW camp has merely pushed back its date of doom:
What most alarmist fail to realize is how incredibly complex earth’s climate system is.
The margins for error in the IPCC’s own models are truly immense. How they can tell us anything with any certainty based on those models is truly a joke and one that leaves me cynical.
The IPCC was created by the UN for the sole purpose of pushing its AGW agenda, and no real world observations, no matter how contradictory to that agenda, will get in the way.
Just look at past narrative shifts as the real world observations altered: we’re now to believe a warming world means more record snow and more record cold, not less as was previously prophesied.
But unfortunately for these political bodies, real world observations are soon to become insurmountable. The sun is shutting down (relatively) — all four magnetic fields are going out of phase (Zharkova) — and the upshot will be a dramatically cooler planet.
Anyone with even the slightest background in this field knows a) during previous known periods of global cooling the Arctic has in fact warmed, and b) low solar activity causes the jet stream to shift to a more meridional flow which, in the NH, sinks cold Arctic air south and pulls warm Tropical air north.
History is repeating, UN and IPCC.
You should be helping us prepare instead of taxing us for a wholly beneficial trace gas.
The lower-latitudes are refreezing in line with historically low solar activity.
Don’t be fooled by bogus political agendas — our future is likely one of ever-descending COLD.
