On December 13, 2008, (?professor?) Al Gore predicted the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years.
Gore made the prediction to a German audience on December 13, 2008, warning the world that “the entire North ‘polarised’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”

But instead, thanks to the continued research at the DMI and others, we have clear evidence that ice at the poles is once again expanding.
So the AGW camp is once again forced to push back its deadline for doom:
The climate is an incredibly complex system. The margins for error in the IPCC’s own models are truly immense. How they can tell us anything with any certainty based on those models is truly a joke and one that leaves me cynical.
The IPCC was created by the UN to push the AGW agenda, and no real world observations, no matter how contradictory to their own ‘angle’, will get in the way of the mission.
Just look at past narrative shifts as the reality altered — a warming Arctic now means more snow and cold records for the lower latitudes. That wasn’t always their line. And anyone with even the slightest background in this field knows a) during previous periods of global cooling, the Arctic has always warmed, and b) low solar activity causes the jet stream to shift to a more meridional flow which, in the NH, sinks cold Arctic air south and pulls warm tropical air north.
Unfortunately for these political bodies real world observations are soon to become insurmountable. The sun is shutting down (relatively) — all four magnetic fields are going out of phase (Zharkova) — and the result will be a dramatically cooler planet.
I look forward to their next narrative shift.
But we know the truth.
History is repeating.
