Al Gore Fail

Al Gore's notorious movie 'An Inconvenient Truth' hit screens ten years ago.

The film is full of apocalyptic end of times doom-and-gloom for Earth and mankind.

So after a decade what about the predictions?

Gore said Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa would be snow-free “within the decade.”   Well, the decade whizzed by and there’s still snow on Kilimanjaro year-round.

Gore said CO2 would heat the planet in an “uninterrupted and intensifying [way].”   Instead, temps have shown no statistically significant warming trend for more than 21 years.

Gore predicted storms would become more frequent and intense.   Oops, the UN Climate agency Gore shared a Nobel prize with in 2007 found “no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency over the past century.”   In fact, there has been an eight year hurricane drought in the Caribbean.

Gore claimed the Arctic would be ice-free “within the next 50 to 70 years.”  The Arctic has the same amount of ice today as it did fifty years ago.   Worse?  The Antarctic (where 90% of the planets ice is formed) has added record ice growth thanks to global cooling.

Finally, Gore said fresh, cold water bled out into the North Atlantic will cause the Gulf Stream to stall sending Europe into another ice age.  Not only have the Australian's debunked the claim but has anyone seen ice skaters on the Tiber recently?

Sounds like Al better give the Nobel and the money back...but don't hold your breath; hell will freeze over before that happens.
