"These figures are fresh. Some models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75% chance that the entire northern polar ice cap, during the summer months could be completely ice-free within five to seven years."Hmmm... Sounds like we should all stop driving to work and write a cheque to one of Al Gore's GIM backed Carbon Trading Firms. But wait a minute, what's this?
Dr Maslowski replied:
"It's unclear to me how this figure was arrived at, I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this"I am confused now, why would Al Gore say something that is not true? Isn't the science already settled?
From The Times
Mr Gore’s office later admitted that the 75 per cent figure was one used by Dr Maslowksi as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Mr GoreSo, Mr Gore takes a "ballpark figure" from a conversation and then many years later presents it as data saying that "this data is fresh" and goes further so as to quote a 75% likelihood of an ice-free Arctic. The summit has become, as predicted, a platform for Climate Change doomsday propaganda with science being presented in the most twisted and perfunctory manner. That word again for the kids, p-r-o-p-a-g-a-n-d-a, go look it up on Wikipedia.
Five to Seven years is always the preferred timeframe for doom from Climatemongers, close enough to evoke fear, far enough away for people to have forgotten about what was said by the time it comes around.
