Al Gore - It's not an Inconvenient lie! I misspoke!

Dear, oh Dear, Al.

From some-one who says he invented the internet, you have made another big blunder!

Al Gore tries to cool ‘climate spin’ by correcting claims of North pole thaw

The clarification said that Mr Gore “misspoke” on the polar ice prediction and that he meant that the cap would be nearly ice-free.

Scientists have criticised Mr Gore for basing his talk on unpublished data, rather than relying on the latest peer-reviewed studies. Most researchers agree on a 20 to 30-year time-scale for near ice-free conditions in the Arctic. Mr Gore’s office, however, stood by the choice of data. It said that the US Navy research unit was in a stronger position to give predictions as it had unique access to measurements of ice volume by submarines.

Golly, Al, and the polar ice is growing! What were you thinking?
