10 Years Ago, Algore Predicted the North Pole Would Be Ice-Free in 5 Years


RUSH: Do you know that yesterday, December the 13th, was ten years ago that Algore predicted the North Pole would be completely ice-free in five years? On December 13, 2008, Algore predicted the North Polar ice cap would be completely ice-free in five years. He made the prediction to an audience in Germany.

JOHNNY DONOVAN: And now, from sunny south Florida, it’s Open Line Friday!

RUSH: (interruption) What do you mean, “Was he right?” Was he right? Hell, no! The North Pole has more ice now than it had when Gore made the prediction.

That is the point. Do you know how many other similar predictions like this there have been? Sea level rise. Islands will cease to exist. I mean, you name it. We got 10 years now, 20 years then. This is an interesting little factoid to pass along.
