Arctic ice could be gone in 5 years. Too bad the scientist he was basing his "findings" off of had no idea where the figure came from. The scientist, Dr. Wieslav Maslowski was quoted in Times Online:
Al Gore was caught with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar when he announced that all |
“It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr Maslowski said. “I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”
Later, Gore was forced to admit the figure came from a casual phone conversation several years ago. But what I'm really curious about is where the heck did our extra 15 years go? Back in August, Greenpeace was caught admitting to its own exaggeration, and that was when the ice was supposed to disappear in 2030.
