Al Gore’s 2007 prediction that all arctic ice would be gone by 2014 now proven to be alarming fear mongering

by J. D. Heyes, Natural News

Hey, don’t look now, but former Vice President Al Gore, whose championing of “global warming” and “climate change” has made him fabulously wealthy, has been lying to you all along about just serious the “danger” is from these manufactured global “crises.”

Because the process has been co-opted by hard Left progressives, Gore was given a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his yeoman work in promoting “solutions” to the phony problem of global warming (remember, President Obama was given one just months after taking office, though he’d yet to do anything to advance the cause of “peace,” save for a delivering a few speeches apologizing for America’s past greatness).

    He was the same idiot behind banning certain refrigerants back in the 90’s which also proved to be false. Well at least he’s batting a thousand. :RP

    With the amount of poisons and toxic chemicals that come from the oil and gas industry it is ridiculous for anyone so called environmentalist to talk about the effect of CO2. Focus on the poisons not the nutrient plants require.

      But that’s just it, Jonathan. As usual, liberal solutions are not about fixing anything but about controlling people and their actions… and getting very well paid for it. That is what those stupid carbon credits are all about. Gun control is no different. It’s not about guns but about control… and this from people who cannot even control themselves, yet are always wanting to control others. Idiots.

      Yes, CO2 is a natural compound and is THE basis for all plant life on this planet. Plants cannot fix carbon from the soil, so MUST breathe it in through their leaves. Without inhaling CO2, plants cannot create the hydrocarbons that make up the cellulose that gives them structure or the sugars that give them energy. Chemical reactions inside the plant extracts and rejects the O2, which the plant exhales, with the carbon retained for constructing all of the things that the plant needs to grow, thrive, and reproduce. In spite of all this, just ask any teenaged student or 20-something person if eliminating ALL CO2 from the Earth’s atmosphere is a good idea and they will reply enthusiastically, YES! Idiots.

      Finally, CO2 is a poor way to heat the Earth’s atmosphere. It’s contribution per ton of CO2 is very small… unlike methane, which has about 23 times as much warming potential per ton as does CO2. But the trick here is… methane comes from natural sources, such as nat gas and both termite and ruminant digestion. It can’t be regulated. It can’t be controlled. Humans don’t emit CH4. And it has no lobby willing to spend lots of money to press its fictional case. CO2 does because through it HUMANS can be controlled, licensed, regulated, and TAXED. Idiots.

    Let’s remember Al Gore is not a scientist and he never claimed to be so. So please grow up and stop holding him to the flame as if he represented facts and science. He’s just a messenger, so let’s look a little more at the source of the original article.

    The Daily Mail – Where space aliens and climate change are reported with equal knowledge and respect

    There have been many claims brought to my attention this week alleging the “final nail in the coffin” of anthropogenic global warming – the same nail that’s been fumbled around by deniers and the unfortunately misled for decades now. This time around it is the venerable and almost hilariously unreliable Daily Mail and it’s claims of Now it’s Global Cooling that has gotten so many hot under the collar. The tabloid claims that Arctic sea ice has rebounded by 60 percent, proving claims of diminishing arctic ice as false.

    What the Daily Mail is good at is frothing up emotions. What the Daily Mail is truly abysmal at is objective, fact-based reporting and explaining even the simplest of scientific details. Not that they’re interested in scientific details.

    “Regression to the mean“is a common statistical phenomenon that any extreme measurement – say a record-breaking seasonal Arctic ice minimum – is followed by a measurement closer to the average. Yes, in fact, the seasonal Arctic sea ice minimum for 2012 was approximately 1 million square miles greater (less ice cover) than for the 2013 seasonal minimum (which officially hasn’t even occurred yet). The 2012 minimum was a record-breaker in a decade of record-breakers.

    That the overall trend for Arctic sea ice extent, as well thickness (as indicated in the graphic below), remains in steep decline is of little interest to the Daily Mail. What they are interested in is misleading their readers, not reporting the facts.

    There is no sudden return of Arctic sea ice cap, nor has there been any “emergency meeting” of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) because of it – the Daily Mail made that up out of whole cloth. But alas, such publications will keep passing around that rusty nail, looking to pound it into the empty coffin of global warming.

    The rest of us face reality and look for solutions.

    According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), as of September 16 Arctic sea ice reached its seasonal minimum for the year at 1.32 million square miles (3.41 million square kilometers), the minimum seasonal extent in the satellite record that began in 1979. NSIDC cautioned that changing wind patterns over the next few weeks could push the minimum even lower, but in any case the September 16 measurement reinforces the longterm downward trend in Arctic sea ice extent.

    The 2012 minimum (so far) occurred three days later than the 1979-200o average sea ice minimum date of September 13. This year’s minimum extent was 293,000 square miles (760,000 square kilometers) below the previous record low minimum extent in the satellite record set on September 18, 2007 – an area roughly the size of the great state of Texas.

    The 2012 minimum is 1.27 million square miles (3.29 million square kilometers) below the 1979-2000 average minimum, and since we’re using states as comparison, that’s equal to about twice the size of Alaska. The ice minimum for 2012 is thus 18 percent below the previous 2007 record minimum and 49 percent below the 1970-2000 average.

    In terms of total ice loss from seasonal maximum to seasonal minimum, Arctic sea ice loss was 4.57 million square miles (11.83 million square kilometers) from the March 20, 2012 maximum to the September 16 minimum, representing the largest summer sea ice loss in the satellite record. The six lowest seasonal Arctic ice minimums in the satellite record have all happened in the past six years.
