Al Gore: Snow is a thing of the past

Oh, woe is us!

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, December 14, 2009 (ENS) – Snow and ice across the planet are melting much faster than anticipated, and the cryosphere – the Earth’s ice and snow cover – is very vulnerable to climate change, finds a new report presented today at the United Nations Climate Summit by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

Snow cover is diminishing, and glaciers from the Himalayas to the Alps are melting rapidly, with the greatest reductions in the Andes and the Rockies, the report shows.

Berlin: snowiest December in 110 years.

Sierra snowpack at twice long-term average.

    Why should he care now? He got rich off the scam.

    Glacier cover / polar ice and snow storms are two different things.

    Hard to argue with people on this one. Either they believe scientists or they dismiss their claims as they see fit.

    Only history wil decide who is right.

    “Either they believe scientists or they dismiss their claims as they see fit.”

    This is a good example of what Obama calls a false choice. There is a third possibility, which most thoughtful and open minded people followed: Listen to what the Warmists predict, and then see what actually happens. Five years ago, Warmists predicted more and violent hurricanes, and fewer and less severe snowstorms. They were wrong on both counts. Which is why most people with critical thinking skills are now skeptical of the predictive power of the Warmists.

    Wrong. There are scientists on both sides. The Warmists have sacrificed science, on that there is consensus. That's why only one side wants to debate and it isn't the Gore/profiteer side.

    Warmists … global warming is so 2005.

    it’s called climate change.

    anyone can pay for scientific proof if they really need it for profit / gain.

    Just an admission that the "global warming" thing wasn't working out too well.
