Gore Impaled by His Own "PoleAxe" at Copenhagen Warmathon

See what happens when reporters actually DO their jobs? All they did was check a simple story! And Al Gore was confronted with another inconvenient truth: he was wrong. Note that this was an assertion in a WRITTEN SPEECH!


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.”

And this is what the climatologist said whose “work” Gore cited:
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.”
