The Goracle Speaks
As if he would ever shut up


As Bugs Bunny would say - "what a maroon". Try not to laugh too hard as you read some of this article from The American Thinker;

Gore Gone Wild: Predicts 220 Foot Sea Level Rise in 10 years
Marc Sheppard

The scariest story told this Halloween week had nothing to do with ghosts, goblins, or zombies, though it was certainly dripping with huge gobs of Gore. In fact -- the most terrifying words screeched in the past seven days came from the master of environmental horror himself.

According to Arab Internet services company Maktoob.com, our favorite greenhouse gasbag spent Tuesday afternoon outlining the reasons why attendees of the Leaders in Dubai Business Forum must change their wicked gas-guzzling ways:

“The North Pole ice cap is 40 percent gone already and could be completely and totally gone in the winter months in the next 5 to 10 years.”

Such thaw, cautioned Gore, “could increase sea levels by 67 metres” and that “each one metre of sea level rise (SLR) is associated with 100 million climate refugees in the world.” That’s up a full 47 meters from the already horrifying predictions he’s made previously.

Incidentally, a climate refugee (or “environmentally induced migrant” as the UN would prefer we refer to them) is a person forced to move to a new country by global warming related environmental disasters. Where the whacky climate refugees per meter SLR figure came from is anybody’s guess.

Anyway, if my math is correct, the 2007 Nobel laureate (further enhancing the credibility of the good folks at Nobel Inc.) effectively predicted that by 2020, the oceans could rise 220 feet and 6,700,000,000 people will be forced to wander the planet in search of a less soggy domicile.

And the journey won’t be easy, what with much of the planet underwater and its entire population -- which Gore’s 6.7 billion amounts to -- vying for whatever dry land remains available.

It should be re-titled, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Being a Complete Idiot."

Ok, so 40% is gone and 60% will be gone in a few years ... hmn.

That 60% will mean the tide level will rise 47 meters. Hmn.

Well, since 40% = 2/3 of 60%, then 2/3 of 47 meters = 32 meters:

That is somewhere around a hundred feet that the Pacific Ocean has risen in the past couple of years.

Maybe a good business to get into around here in s. Calif is to sell authentically autographed planks from Noah's Ark, which has been found floating in the portico of the Taj Mahony.
