An inconvenient commentary: 5 times Al Gore's climate alarmists made horribly wrong predictions

Image
Climate-change alarmist Al Gore’s newest fear-mongering film, “An Inconvenient Sequel,” arrived in select movie theaters over the weekend. Unsurprisingly, the film is full of dire warnings about the future of mankind and its allegedly dangerous use of fossil fuels.

However, before you trade in your car for a bicycle or your steak for insects, consider that for nearly 50 years, climate alarmists have been desperately trying and failing to predict the downfall of human civilization.

Special: There’s an imminent commodity shortage no one is talking about Here are just five examples of the many times climate alarmists gazed into their crystal balls and ended up looking more than a little foolish.
1. New York Times: Polar explorer predicts end of ice at the North Pole (1969) Way back before Leonardo DiCaprio, the rise of Gore and the rampant politicization of climate science, polar explorer Col. Bernt Balchen was convinced the North Pole would melt by as early as 1979.

Al Gore's 'Inconvenient Sequel' Meets with Skepticism, Even from Left

Image
Nobody is more excited about Friday’s release of Al Gore’s sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth” than climate skeptic Marc Morano, which comes as an ill wind for the movement to stop global warming, not to mention Mr. Gore.

For months, Mr. Morano and his team have tracked the Democrat at advance screenings of “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” ambushing him with stunts such as asking him about his prediction that without drastic measures, the planet would reach a “point of no return” in a decade.
The former vice president made that claim 11 years ago in “An Inconvenient Truth,” the Oscar-winning documentary whose warnings of climate doom propelled Mr. Gore to the forefront of the movement against global warming — while turning him into something of a punchline.

“Al Gore is the gift that keeps on giving,” said Mr. Morano, who runs the skeptical Climate Depot website, a project of the free-market Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow.

Al Gore At It Again, Gore: 'Some Levels of the Earth System Have Crossed a Point of No Return'

Image
WASHINGTON – Back with a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, former Vice President Al Gore reflected on his 2006 prediction that “the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years” if “drastic measures” were not taken to combat climate change.
Gore was asked why he made that prediction in the first film and if he has another prediction to make about climate change now 11 years later.
First of all, we’ve seen a lot of progress since the first movie came out. We have the Paris agreement now. The cost of renewable energy has come down so quickly that people are switching over. Unfortunately, some levels of the Earth system have crossed a point of no return,” Gore said during an interview with PJM on the green carpet of the An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power screening Wednesday evening at the Newseum.

“The big chunk of the West Antarctic ice sheet, for example, makes a considerable amount of sea level rise inevitable in the future. But we still have the ability to stop short of…

The Corrupt History Of Al Gore NASA Temperature History

Image
In 1974, the National Center For Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado showed no net warming from 1870 to 1970, and a 0.5C cooling from 1940 to 1970.
Climatologists blamed every imaginable form of bad weather on the global cooling that was occurring.

14 Jul 1974, Page 1 – Lincoln Evening Journal at Newspapers.com In 1975, the National Academy of Sciences reported the same thing, and said global cooling is inevitable. Science News March 1, 1975 3 Mar 1975, Page 10 – The Sedalia Democrat In 1989 Tom Karl, the Director of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, said Earth had cooled from 1921 to 1979. 7 Dec 1989, Page 14 – Santa Cruz Sentinel at Newspapers.com NCDC: * National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) * — Welcome In 1981, NASA reported about 0.2C warming from 1921 to 1979. Challenge_chapter2.pdf But by 1999, NASA had changed the 1921 to 1979 cooling which Tom Karl reported into almost 0.3C warming, and had erased most of the 1940 to 1970 cooling. 1999_Hansen_ha03200f.pdf By 2001, NASA…

Hey Al Gore? Are You Seeing The Hand Writing On The Wall? Al Gore Wind and Solar Energy Are Dead Ends

Image
Renewable energy is the way of the future, we are told.  It is inevitable.  Some renewable energy advocates boldly claim that the world could be powered by renewable energy as early as 2030 – with enough government subsidies, that is.  And of course, the mainstream media play their part, hyping up the virtues of solar and wind energy as the solution to climate change.

In one regard, they are quite right: in terms of generational capacity, wind and solar have grown by leaps and bounds in the last three decades (wind by 24.3% per year since 1990, solar by 46.2% per year since 1990).  However, there are two questions worth asking: (i) are renewable energies making a difference, and (ii) are they sustainable?

To answer the first question: No, wind and solar energy have not made a dent in global energy consumption, despite their rapid growth.  In fact, after thirty years of beefy government subsidies, wind power still meets just 0.46% of earth's total energy demands, accordi…

Al Gore Global Warming Fraud Explained In One Simple Chart

Image
The global warming fraud is based entirely on the practice of "adjusting" data.  Michael Mann's infamous hockey stick graph was "adjusted" to "hide the decline," most notably.  But every prediction of catastrophe, every "hottest year ever" story, depends on adjusting the actual data of surface temperatures.

A recent scientific study of global average surface temperature reports and the CO2 endangerment finding has produced a remarkable graph that says it all, very clearly.
James Delingpole of Breitbart spotted it and explains:
The peer-reviewed study by two scientists and a veteran statistician looked at the global average temperature datasets (GAST) which are used by climate alarmists to argue that recent years have been "the hottest evah" and that the warming of the last 120 years has been dramatic and unprecedented.
What they found is that these readings are "totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and…

The Crisis Of Al Gore Integrity-Deficient Science.

Image
The epidemic of agenda-driven science by press release and falsification has reached crisis proportions.

In just the past week: Duke University admitted that its researchers had falsified or fabricated data that were used to get $113 million in EPA grants – and advance the agency’s air pollution and “environmental justice” programs. A New England Journal of Medicine article and editorial claimed the same pollutants kill people – but blatantly ignored multiple studies demonstrating that there is no significant, evidence-based relationship between fine particulates and human illness or mortality.
In an even more outrageous case, the American Academy for the Advancement of Science’s journal Science published an article whose authors violated multiple guidelines for scientific integrity. The article claimed two years of field studies in three countries show exposure to neonicotinoid pesticides reduces the ability of honeybees and wild bees to survive winters and establish new po…

Hey Al Gore, This Now You Save The Planet? G20 Protesters Set Street Fires, So Climate Change Is Not The Threat To Human Race After All And You Got Burnt-Out Barricades To Prove It!

Image
At least 10 cars were set ablaze overnight outside a Porsche dealership in Hamburg. Police say they're investigating whether the incident was related to the upcoming Group of 20 summit.
Police said Thursday that unidentified perpetrators set the cars alight in the city's Eidelstedt district shortly before 4 a.m. The blaze was extinguished before 6 a.m.
The situation in Hamburg has been largely calm ahead of the G-20 summit that starts today but authorities are concerned about possible trouble at a large protest by anti-globalization activists later Thursday. In fact, organizers of Thursday's demonstration have titled the event "G-20: Welcome to Hell." While protests so far have been largely calm, city police chief Ralf Martin Meyer told ZDF television: "We are skeptical as to whether this evening and tonight will remain peaceful."
Hamburg is boosting its police force with reinforcements from around the country for the summit, which takes…
