It was only five years ago in December that Al Gore claimed that the polar ice caps would be completely melted by now. But he might be surprised to find out that Arctic ice coverage is up 50 percent this year from 2012 levels.

“Some of the models suggest that there is a 75 percent 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,” Gore said in 2008.

The North Pole is still there, and growing. BBC News reports that data from Europe’s Cryosat spacecraft shows that Arctic sea ice coverage was nearly 9,000 cubic kilometers (2,100 cubic miles) by the end of this year’s melting season, up from about 6,000 cubic kilometers (1,400 cubic miles) during the same time last year.

  1. It is crazy to believe that facts will influence the future of global warming. They will tweak their lies and find another way to pump up their followers with more gloom and doom predictions. They have too much power and money to concede. The socialist count on them to make a case to rob us of our freedoms and rights. No matter what happens they will continue the dialogue that, "THE END IS NEAR". I wish that their end was near.

  2. WHAT????? Didn't Al Gore say, just 10 years ago, that the North Pole woud be water!!!

  3. I agree with you mari. Anyhow, thanks for sharing the interesting information with us. Huge advances in technology over the past decade has created new opportunities for freedom of expression and freedom of information.

    The 3″ LCD has been improved with the inclusion of Live View. Some reliable websites also provide their visitors with comprehensive information and details about this camera under their Nikon D7000 review button.
