Another ‘failed’ global warming prediction

Look I would be absolutely delighted if they could just get the weather right for the weekend, but climate alarmist demand we must believe their predictions of what will happen years down the road if we don’t rein in CO2 emissions. Well, let’s take look at another of Al Gore’s failed predictions from his book An Inconvenient Truth. Gore predicted that the US would need to rename Glacier National Park because there would be no glaciers by 2012. Gore wrote: “I climbed to the top of the bigger glacier in this park with one of my daughters in 1997 and heard from the scientists who accompanied us that within 15 years all of the glaciers throughout the park will likely be gone.” Earlier this year the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center announced that the park’s 26 glaciers are doing fine and in fact, they removed signs telling people they would be gone by 2020, hoping nobody would notice.

Global warming taking a vacation this summer in parts of the Arctic

Though we are still getting the usual rhetoric about how man-made climate change is destroying the earth unless we act immediately, we are not hearing about the unusual climatic conditions affecting parts of the Arctic this year. There is a reason for that. This summer has been a been a particularly cold one in Greenland and it doesn’t fit the man-made global warming narrative that the ice is melting and will result in rising ocean levels unless we immediately do something to reduce CO2 emissions. But not only is the cold weather disrupting the narrative of the climate-change activists and politicians, the cold weather is also having a profound impact on shore birds that nest along Greenland’s coastline each summer. According to Scientific American, typically by June the snow has receded in Greenland allowing shore birds to nest and raise their young in July. However, this year has been cold and the ice and snow has continued into the summer preventing shore birds from finding food and nesting spots. In an interview with Scientific American, …
