100 Days Until Al Gore’s Ice Free Arctic

During his 2007 Nobel prize acceptance speech, Al Gore predicted an ice-free Arctic in 2014. Earth only has ice for 100 more days.

But first he needs to melt the ice off the Great Lakes, on Memorial Day weekend.

    Gore lied,
    Biden lied,
    Obama lied,

    John Kerry has been caught lying again.
    From CNS News:

    Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience in Mexico on Wednesday that temperatures in Europe and in Vietnam were “unprecedented” and broke “every record that’s ever been seen.” However, although it was hot that day, he was off the mark.

    Maybe Gore is hoping for Return of the Arctic Death Spiral!

    The graph could get interesting…Joe Bastardi and Anthony Watts report that NOAA (NOAA! of all groups) is predicting above “normal” Arctic ice extent at the time of maximum melt!

      If you project the present trend (linearly) from the DMI graph above you’ll get the same result for mid September, close to average or above, possibly before September.

    Superior is also headed toward record high water levels:

    8 inches above normal May. Already above seasonal Max average.

    Also colder (obviously):

    Bottom line: Superior is headed to 603 and with less Fall/Winter evaporation, will smash records if they don’t dump it. Look for IJC to continue to increase releases like they already have been.

    So, about this time last year, our friendly rowers were getting all excited and planning their Northwest passage fiasco. Thought I’d check out the NWP action planned for the 2014 year, and I came across this swindle.

    Yes, if you have a spare $85,000, you too can spend 23 days ice-bound around Greenland!

  6. Dmh says:

    NORSEX show similar estimate, with present extent only below 2009, 2012 and 2013,

    The DMI graph shows the ice also above 2005 and 2006.
    So far the present anomalies are comparing well with 2005.
