Al Gore vs. Reality on Planetary Ice Caps and Global Warming

It appears that reality is not cooperating with the myth that man-made CO2 is causing global warming. Recent satellite images show that both the Arctic and the Antarctic sea ice have dramatically increased in size and thickness. 

Despite Al Gore’s 2007 apocalyptic predictions that in just 7 more years the Arctic ice cap will be “completely gone,” it has instead dramatically increased by 43% in size since 2012.  The North Pole ice cap grew by 1.715 million square kilometers, an area the size of Alaska, in the last two years.  In solidarity, the South Pole ice cap has also reached record-breaking levels, and not stands at 20 million square kilometers, the highest level since records began.

Al Gore (2007): "The [Arctic] ice cap is falling off a cliff. It could be completely gone in summer in as little as 7 years from now."

Reality (2014):

ARCTIC Ice Cap: Ice sheet growth has been dramatic. The North Pole ice cover has reached 5.62 million square kilometers. “This was the highest level recorded on that date since 2006 and represents an increase of 1.71 million square kilometres over the past two years” an impressive 43 percent.

ANTARCTIC Sea Ice Cap: “Scientists have declared a new record has been set for the extent of Antarctic sea ice since records began. Satellite imagery reveals an area of about 20 million square kilometers covered by sea ice around the Antarctic continent.  That is roughly double the size of the Antarctic continent and about three times the size of Australia.”

Our planet’s actual climate continues to expose the fraud and junk science that Al Gore and other Global Warming cult followers have been spreading over the last few decades.  Scientific observations show that there’s been no increased global warming for the last 17 years.  None of the hysterical weather predictions and doomsday climate scenarios Al Gore and his minions promised us ever materialized.

Of course, it may be that our weather satellites have been compromised by the Koch brothers and both the North and South Poles are now part of the vast right-wing conspiracy.  After all, in Al Gore’s universe anything is possible!
