Al Gore, who predicted North Pole would be ice-free by 2016, was paid $320k by Australian govt to conduct ‘climate training’

Nearly 9 years ago, on December 14, 2009, at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would be completely ice-free in 5 to 7 years, i.e., by 2014 to 2016 (2:14 mark):

“There is a 75% chance that the entire North Polar ice cap during . . . some of the summer months could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years.”

Not only has the North Pole or Arctic ice cap not melted, the figure below, from the National Snow and Ice Data Center, shows that the Arctic sea ice extent for May 2019 was a massive 4.70 million square miles (12.16 million sq. km.). The magenta line shows the 1981 to 2010 average sea ice extent for the month of May, which, as you can see for yourself, shows that Arctic sea ice has not diminished since 1981.

But that hasn’t stopped the Australian government from paying Al Gore $320,000 of Australian taxpayers’ money to “lead” the recently-concluded 41st Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in Brisbane, Australia, June 5-7, 2019.

As described by the Climate Reality Project:

Climate Reality’s 41st training will explore the climate challenges and opportunities relevant to Queensland specifically and the Asia-Pacific region generally. Led by former US Vice President and Climate Reality Chairman Al Gore, the training will include appearances from elected officials, business leaders, communications experts and top scientists, who will give attendees the skills and knowledge to address the climate crisis and seek fair solutions with their communities. As part of the training, participants will also learn how to give the presentation made famous by [Al Gore’s] Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth and seen in the 2017 follow-up film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.

“From dangerous heat waves and storms to the threatened loss of crop yields and the Great Barrier Reef, few places in the world have seen the impacts of the climate crisis more than Australia and the Asia-Pacific,” said Al Gore. “However, in the face of these impacts, Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific Island nations have a tremendous opportunity to champion solutions for a low-carbon, sustainable future, and have the tools needed to transition to a clean energy economy. These nations and their diverse coalitions fighting for a better future represent the hope that we can and will make the changes needed to solve the climate crisis.”

Joanne Nova, an Australian science writer and author of The Skeptic’s Handbook, points out the irony that while Al Gore was “leading” the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training:

Fittingly, The Gore effect strikes again. Snow fell in Queensland. (The last time it fell was 2015.)

Yeah…but that would be like trying to train a monkey to perform neurosurgery!

Arctic sea ice extent fluctuates and correlates very closely with level of solar activity. The mean here begins in 1981 and the highest recorded extent was the winter of 79-80. If you go back a few years to 1975 extent was actually lower than it is today. So the “global climate” is very stable. Only the left could take stability and make it into a crisis. Disgusting Odor sycophant Fat Albert should be aware that he’s not going to live forever and he should be fearing the justice of Heaven

It’s a “Y2K” thing. You just declare an imaginary emergency and present yourself as an expert on it. Ka-Ching!

I mean really. When you line them all up and look at them, I wouldn’t select any of them to judge a pickle making contest.

We ALL know this already–even (and, perhaps, especially) Al Gore!

I predict Al Gore will flop and melt and he will look like the stain left by road kill, brown and shitty looking.

I had wondered what Gore was up to, we don’t hear much about him these days . . . I had just figured that he had slithered back under a rock.

Too fat to slither. Probably just sits on the bank like a bullfrog.

Liberals need more globalists liberals to support their craziness and folks it is scary but there are actually leaders with NO common sense out there who rush to support the craziness.

When governments want real information they go to career political parasites. Just buy “credits” from Gore and the “problem” will go away. I see where one of the State Parks had signs on a glacier saying that it would be gone by 2020 (according to St. Al). They had to take them down last week. There’s more ice there than previously recorded.

I predict that the South Pole will move to the North Pole near Australia. Can I get $250,000 to train you dummies in Australia?

Once the pole shift happens the water will circle the drain differently in accordance with the physical laws of Uranus. I’m studying Polish.

It’s amazing that the Left usually picks the BIGGEST failure to lead the field! Al Gore is the WORST predictor of coming Global Warming catastrophe. The Aussies might as well have hired Chicken Little to train them on the falling sky! He’d have spread the SAME unproven propaganda as Gore…but he’d have done it for chicken feed!

How do you know a politician is lying? His lips are moving. Gee, maybe we shouldn’t believe politicians? Are they really liars? Imagine that, ha ha! Oh and they’re full of it too.
We’ve had such a cool year that I would like to have some global warming.
He’s a robot.
