Al Gore: at his hyperbolic best

Al Gore was at his hyperbolic best in his speech to the Copenhagen climate change summit when he made this statement,

“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.

Dr. Maslowski not only didn’t say that, he was unable to explain how Gore came to those conclusions. When confronted, Gore’s office said, well, it was a “ballpark figure.”

Translation: Gore just made it up.

Great. Next thing you’ll tell us is that Obama really can’t stop the seas from rising.

      • I saw that. What a maroon… Evil Grin Smileys

        Honestly, I think the pressure is getting to him. He’s seeing his scam fall apart in front of his eyes and he’s spouting anything that comes to his feeble mind. He never was that stable to begin with.

        What is it with Dem VP’s? Gore is just a quieter Biden.

      • I wonder what’s going to happen in 35,000 yrs that will cause the core of the earth to stop being hot.

        The man is a dumb ass and the people who believe him are idiots.

      • SeeDubya,
        Actually, the earth’s core will eventually burn out, and the energy it produces, which sustains our atmosphere will be gone. Earth will become a desolate Mars like planet, unable to sustain life, but all the estimates I’ve seen predict millions of years from now, not 35,000. The Pangea Ultima is predicted before the core is exhausted, and that is 250million years from now.

  2. Al Gore had quite the sweet little deal going based on bought “science” and “scientists” who hid their methods but assured us they were correct and anybody that questioned them was a big poopyhead funded by Big Oil and/or Big Coal. Pass a few laws, sign a few treaties, and anybody that wanted to do business had to pay tribute to Charlatan Al’s Carbon Trading Show.

  3. All aboard the FAIL boat!

  4. The really odd thing about this whole global warming/c02 BS is, it all began with Margaret Thatcher.
    A classic example of the law of unintended consequences.
    There is also some very good stuff in the comments, like this piece.

    As for the liar algore, it would make sense that someone as sleazy as him would follow the Ken Lay formula to riches.

  5. No big surprise here. Gore is on record as saying that lying about global warming is perfectly acceptable.

    …. in an interview with Grist magazine

    Grist There’s a lot of debate right now over the best way to communicate about global warming and get people motivated. Do you scare people or give them hope? What’s the right mix?

    Gore I think the answer to that depends on where your audience’s head is. 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 it 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.

    An “over-representation of fact?” kind of like, “the polar caps will melt in 5 years …
    Gore has been saying this shit for years. It’s nice to see him being called on the carpet.

  6. Hey guys and gals. This is a bit off topic but if you haven’t said thank you to the troops lately, here’s your chance:

    It’s easy and free!
