BBC, Al Gore Forecasted ‘Ice-Free’ North Pole By 2013
Remember those climate crooks who forecast that there would be no ice left at the North Pole by 2013?
The corrupt BBC reported the junk science forecasts back in 2007:
Former US Vice President Al Gore cited Professor Maslowski’s analysis on Monday in his acceptance speech at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo.
“Our projection of 2013 for the removal of ice in summer is not accounting for the last two minima, in 2005 and 2007,” the researcher from the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, explained to the BBC.
“So given that fact, you can argue that may be our projection of 2013 is already too conservative.”
“The implication is that this is not a cycle, not just a fluctuation. The loss this year will precondition the ice for the same thing to happen again next year, only worse.
“There will be even more opening up, even more absorption and even more melting.
“In the end, it will just melt away quite suddenly. It might not be as early as 2013 but it will be soon, much earlier than 2040.”
I have explained many times that the forecasting methods used is to assume whatever trend is in motion will remain in motion forever.
In other words, if the Dow Jones were to rally by 25% in one year, then they would predict that same percentage movement will continue forever.
The methodology is completely void of any cyclical understanding of how everything functions according to a cycle in the universe.

Editor’s Note: The ‘Gore Effect’ was well and truly felt in this weekend’s Australian general election. After unethically trying to interfere in that nation’s vote the discredited former US Vice President and climate crusader’s appeals to Australians to ‘save the planet’ had an unintended consequence:
Al Gore Weighed In On The Australian Election, Urged Australians To ‘Choose The Right Path’ And Vote Against The Underdog Ruling (Climate Skeptical) Coalition Government.
Gore told Aussie news (via Coercion Code):
Former US presidential candidate turned activist Al Gore has weighed in on Australia’s federal election campaign, saying the Coalition would take the country “in the wrong direction” on climate change.
Speaking to ABC radio this morning after approaching the national broadcaster, the 71-year-old said Australia had a chance to boost hope about the political will to tackle climate change before the world gathers to review the Paris Agreement on climate action.
The Australian election “is an opportunity for Australians to play an incredibly important role in saying to the entire world: we can solve this,” he said.
“What you do in Australia this Saturday has incredibly important global implications.”
Climate change has become a top issue in this election campaign. Across all political parties more than 80 percent of Australians want the Government to take more action on climate change, according to the ABC’s Vote Compass. That’s up 20 percentage points from 2013.
[ Ahhh…No Al, it was the Economy, and Climate Change was number 4]
The Coalition is proposing to keep our current emission reduction target of 26 percent by 2030, while Labor is proposing a much more ambitious target of 45 percent and to ensure half of Australia’s energy comes from renewable sources. It also wants to reduce net emissions to zero by 2050.
Mr. Gore labeled the Coalition’s plan “not credible” but said Labor’s plan, if enacted, “would be seen as an extremely significant act of leadership on the part of Australia.”
[ Al, You might call it leadership, but clearly the Australian public thought differently and saw through the sham, and called it lunacy]
“This election is about two clear paths on the climate crisis — one is about setting ambitious achievable targets, and another is about taking Australia in the wrong direction, and I trust that Australian voters will choose the right path,” he said.
[ No..Al, your buddy Bill was creating crazy impossible targets, and the other is the Coalition who is working to achieve realistic targets]
Despite Australia being responsible for about 1.3 percent of global emissions, Mr. Gore believes the nation “punches above its weight” on political leadership.
The UK, led by a conservative government, declared a climate emergency earlier this month, while New Zealand last week introduced a long-awaited bill to take a net zero carbon approach.
[Good Luck New Zealand …Now what are you going to do with all your 70 Million Cows, Jacinda?]
But the Coalition has torn itself apart on the issue, dumping former leader Malcolm Turnbull over its unwillingness to reduce emissions in a meaningful way.
This morning a group of more than 60 Australian scientists, including Nobel prize winners and former Australians of the year, called on the Government to prioritize action on climate change.
“The consequences of climate change are already upon us — including harsher and more frequent extreme weather, destruction of natural ecosystems, severe property damage and a worldwide threat to human health,” they wrote.
“The solutions are all available to address climate change, all that is missing is the political will.”
The leaders are due to give their final speech ahead of the election this weekend. Opposition Leader Bill Shorten is expected to highlight climate change in his speech and accuse members of the Government of not believing in climate science.
Al….sorry it’s a Coal-ition victory, so all the rhetoric and hot air has been for nothing.
Voters responded by giving a shock victory to the underdog Coalition government. It seems ordinary voters have gotten wise to decades of lies and junk science about a ‘climate crisis.’
