Al Gore on 'climate crisis' : 'Worse than we thought'

← return to Water Cooler

In the midst of heavy snow fall all over the United States and a recent admission from global warming advocate Phil Jones that there has been no warming since 1995, former Vice-President Al Gore is sticking to his guns. In a February 12 statement, he writes on his website that the “[climate crisis] is worse than we thought.”

More evidence of the climate crisis is unfolding before our eyes. The situation in the Arctic is worse than data from satellite pictures have told us

“For scientists studying the health of Arctic sea ice, satellite observations are absolutely essential for providing the big picture. It was satellites that revealed in September 2007 a record minimum ice coverage in the region — the result of a massive summer melt. And it was satellites that showed in 2008 and 2009 the modest recovery of late-summer Arctic ice that suggested to some that the specter of a totally ice-free polar ocean might be somewhat less imminent than feared.” (more)

Denying much, Mr. Gore? The fallout from the climate-gate emails showing University of East Anglia scientists were covering up climate science has just begun, and the former Vice-President has yet to figure that out.
