View Full Version : Gore at climate talks: Polar ice may go in 5 years [does he really believe it?]

COPENHAGEN New computer modeling suggests the Arctic Ocean may be nearly ice-free in the summertime as early as 2014, Al Gore said Monday at the U.N. climate conference.

My question: Do you think Al Gore honestly believes this junk? His inconvenient truth sure has been convenient to his own pocketbook. While he may purchase bogus 'offsets,' he certainly hasn't taken steps to reduce his own carbon footprint. (I would think a true concern would drive somebody to limit one's own footprint and work towards 'offsetting' others who do not follow suit.)

Personally, I think he's repeated the junk so many times that he now does believe it. I think it's become 'religion' where this is an article of faith and to say otherwise is heresy.

OMG! It already happened! Al Gore was right (in 1958):

Google north pole ice melt in google news archives. It happens all the time

I bet this july, the artic ice sheet will be a lot smaller than it is right now.
ZOMG! Global Warming!

Gore believes his bank account, and the carbon credits he has accumulated.

We all missed a golden opportunity to make a statement during the conference. It hit me tonight, if we had all turned off all non essential lights all over the world, in protest, during the conference, it would have freaked them out. It is hard for any of us to travel to where these idiots burn carbon to meet across the world each week.

Al Gore is an idiot, besides being corrupt. Anyone in Copenhagen, that can spread the word to turn out all the lights quickly? It is night there now. They would not know what is going on if it spread fast to turn out all non essential lights.

Let's go for a turn out the lights night tomorrow night. Worm this across the net. I will light one tea candle tomorrow night and one Wed night. The rest of the lights will be off. Sort on nice at this time of the year anyway.

If all did it, oil cost would tank and the big boys already have a glut in ships around the world that they have been buying and paying storage charges on each day.

Not only will your electric bill go down, the Co2 will go down so we can have more blizzards and cold weather.

Bottom line, if enough do this, they will wish to hell they didn't try to pull this one off over the sheeple.

Imagine what two weeks would do. They would be screaming, if all turned off their lights for two weeks. The cost to the elite would be staggering.

We have so little way to impact them anymore, that I am going to do it, even if no one else shuts off the lights.

And in 1817! :eek: Must have been the SUVs that caused it. :rolleyes:

"It will without doubt have come to your Lordship's knowledge that a considerable change of climate, inexplicable at present to us, must have taken place in the Circumpolar Regions, by which the severity of the cold that has for centuries past enclosed the seas in the high northern latitudes in an impenetrable barrier of ice has been during the last two years, greatly abated.

(This) affords ample proof that new sources of warmth have been opened and give us leave to hope that the Arctic Seas may at this time be more accessible than they have been for centuries past, and that discoveries may now be made in them not only interesting to the advancement of science but also to the future intercourse of mankind and the commerce of distant nations." President of the Royal Society, London, to the Admiralty, 20th November, 1817

maybe Al Gore will be gone in 5 years.


who wants to lay odds on Al Gore being gone before the ice at the poles?

The acrtic ice is already losing more in the summer than it has in past summers (after 1958 I guess). I think we could see it gone in the summer of 2015. If we see it gone for multiple summers in a row, then that would be proof that we are in a warming trend. Stay tuned.

Perhaps, and which would still not prove that is was caused by man's influence on the environment.

Meanwhile, the southpole continues to see an increase in ice accumulation.

"Rapid growth spurt leaves amount of ice at levels seen 29 years ago.

Thanks to a rapid rebound in recent months, global sea ice levels now equal those seen 29 years ago, when the year 1979 also drew to a close.

Ice levels had been tracking lower throughout much of 2008, but rapidly recovered in the last quarter. In fact, the rate of increase from September onward is the fastest rate of change on record, either upwards or downwards.

how long would it take for us to notice a slight shift in the poles?
it can't be "global" warming if the south pole is gaining ice. it would be northern warming.

Its simple. Northern warming is caused by man, southern cooling is caused by natural fluctuations. Now pay up, world, to correct the northern warming. :rolleyes:
