Gore-ing The Truth
As only Al could...

I had to go to the other side of the world to get the skinny on this. Here's the entire article from Rediff.com (India); (Emphasis mine.)
Al Gore's Copenhagen blunder

Former US Vice-President Al Gore committed a blunder at the Copenhagen climate change summit by claiming that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years.

Gore, who had become an unlikely green movement activist after narrating the Oscar-winning documentary 'An Inconvenient Truth', got entangled in a new climate change 'spin' row by misquoting an expert.

"These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr Wieslav Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years," The Times quoted Gore, as saying.

But Maslowski says that this was never a figure they agreed to. "I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this," he said.

Right from its beginning, the Copenhagen summit is having a series of setbacks. Key elements of the deal are unraveling and developing countries walked out last night in protest. These along with Al Gore's blunder have cast yet more shadows over the conference of Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is where the world's supply of snuff is made, and it looks like aglore just stuck a few plugs up his nose.

I am sorry but at the cave we cannot call this Copenhagen, we must refer to it as Dopenhagen. Because only the dopes in society would be involved in this idiocy. Either that or they are smoking dope!

According to Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory show, Al Gore is just a tool. The real mastermind is a UN regular named Strong. I hope they go after the Freemasons next.

Just another phony calling attention to himself. A lawyer, not a scientist. I can't tell the science apart from the ideology and just the general bull sh*t that surrounds climate change. And the arrogance.
