All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Al Gore's Inconvenient Lies

Al Gore has been caught out again.

"Speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, Mr Gore said new computer modelling suggests there is a 75 per cent chance of the entire polar ice cap melting during the summertime by 2014." (UK Telegraph)




He claimed to have based his latest "ice-free arctic" prediction on talks with climatologist Dr Maslowski, of the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Californa.

Alluding to Dr Maslowski’s work, he said: “These figures are fresh, I just got them yesterday. (UK Telegraph)

So, Gore says "new computer modelling" and "Yesterday."

What does Al Gore's office say?

Following Dr Maslowski’s comments, Mr Gore’s office later said the 75 per cent figure was one used by Dr Maslowksi as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Mr Gore.


The story is also in today's Australian:
