US: Just for the record…
FIVE YEARS AGO TODAY—
Al Gore predicted the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years. Gore made the prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”
This wasn’t the only time Gore made his ice-free prediction. Gore’s been predicting this since 2007. That means that this year the North Pole should be completely melted by now.
And it’s not. Although I’m absolutely certain there are plenty of apocalyptic faith-heads out there who think it really is, and all that floaty white stuff is just polystyrene supplied by Big Oil.
