Oops, Algore, you missed, again.

It seems that Algore (a.k.a. Al Gore), the infamous crony capitalist and environmental blowhard, is wrong again. According to Climate Depot the Earth gained a record amount of sea ice in 2013. Algore, however, back in 2007 predicted that

the North Pole could be “ice-free by 2013” that was cited by former Vice President Al Gore in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech has proven to be off… by 920,000 square miles.

In his Dec. 10, 2007 “Earth has a fever” speech, Gore referred to a prediction by U.S. climate scientist Wieslaw Maslowski that the Arctic’s summer ice could “completely disappear” by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions.

Don’t worry, though, because we know Algore always lands on his feet after making a big mistake. He’ll find some  way to make truck loads of money out of this failure just as he did with the failed Current TV venture.

A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water.
