The Goracle’s Crystal Ball Lets Him Down Yet Again

So sad. The Times of London catches Al Gore making it up as he goes along. Not that this is anything unusual for Gore. His movie is full of lies and distortions and made up “facts.” He recently claimed the interior of the Earth was several million degrees. He is actually being sued by 30,000 scientists for global warming lies. However, let’s not forget his famous quote

“In the United States of America, unfortunately we still live in a bubble of unreality. And the Category 5 denial is an enormous obstacle to any discussion of solutions. Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.”

In other words, lying is fine. Therefore we get lies. In the past, though, the media was loathe to call him out. Lately, the media has been more and more willing to expose the lies, hence

There are many kinds of truth. Al Gore was poleaxed by an inconvenient one yesterday.

The former US Vice-President, who became an unlikely figurehead for the green movement after narrating the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, became entangled in a new climate change “spin” row.

Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five 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.”

But, see, there was a problem

However, the climatologist whose work Mr Gore was relying upon dropped the former Vice-President in the water with an icy blast.

“It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr Maslowski said. “I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”

Let the spin begin!

Mr Gore’s office later admitted that the 75 per cent figure was one used by Dr Maslowksi as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Mr Gore.

A “conversation.” So, not actual proof, and Dr. Maslowski probably wouldn’t even remember the conversation, but

Dr Maslowki, who works at the US Naval Postgraduate School in California, said that his latest results give a six-year projection for the melting of 80 per cent of the ice, but he said he expects some ice to remain beyond 2020.

He added: “I was very explicit that we were talking about near-ice-free conditions and not completely ice-free conditions in the northern ocean. I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this,” he said. “It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at, based on the information I provided to Al Gore’s office.”

Hmmm, care to go for Spin #2, Al? And you have to love the photo the Times of London used to headline the article.

Meanwhile, there is more violence continuing in the streets of Copenhagen by the climate change protesters.

Also, TFMo forwarded me a link this morning which contains 500 peer reviewed papers supporting skepticism. I’m going to start working my way through them.
