Al Gore and His Global Warmists Are Wrong, Again

At CNS News, Barbara Hollingsworth begins a report about about dire global warming predictions made by former Vice President Al Gore by writing:

"A 2007 prediction that summer in the North Pole could be “ice-free by 2013” that was cited by former Vice President Al Gore in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech has proven to be off… by 920,000 square miles.

"In his Dec. 10, 2007 “Earth has a fever” speech, Gore referred to a prediction by U.S. climate scientist Wieslaw Maslowski that the Arctic’s summer ice could “completely disappear” by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions. - See more at: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/barbara-hollingsworth/wrong-al-gore-predicted-arctic-summer-ice-could-disappear-2013#sthash.SHgkk7Kp.dpuf

"Gore said that on Sept. 21, 2007, "scientists reported with unprecedented alarm that the North Polar icecap is, in their words, 'falling off a cliff.' One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Another new study to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers later this week warns that it could happen in as little as seven years, seven years from now."

"Maslowski told members of the American Geophysical Union in 2007 that the Arctic’s summer ice could completely disappear within the decade. “If anything,” he said, “our projection of 2013 for the removal of ice in summer… is already too conservative.”

"The former vice president also warned that rising temperatures were “a planetary emergency and a threat to the survival of our civilization.”

"However, instead of completely melting away, the polar icecap is at now at its highest level for this time of year since 2006."

Hollingsworth also reports, "Satellite photos of the Arctic taken by NASA in August 2012 and August 2013 show a 60 percent increase in the polar ice sheet, more than half the size of Europe, despite “realistic” predictions by climate scientists six years ago that the North Pole would be completely melted by now."

Looking at the growth in sea ice another way, the Real Science blog writes, "Earth has gained 19,000 Manhattans of sea ice since this date last year, the largest increase on record. There is more sea ice now than there was on this date in 2002."

When are the global warmmongers going to realize that global temperatures change much like the title of Dr. Fred Singer's book, "Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1500 years."

Ms. Hollingsworth's report includes a nearly two-minute video of Mr. Gore's December 10, 2007 remarks as well as well as two satellite photos of the Arctic ice.
