1. 2007: Make a scientific statement like, “northern polar waters could be ice-free in summers within just 5-6 years.”.
Quote this whilst receiving your award, “Former US Vice President Al Gore cited Professor Maslowski’s analysis on Monday in his acceptance speech at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo.”
2. In 2011: Admit you are wrong & “move the goal post“–
“Scientists who predicted a few years ago that Arctic summers could be ice-free by 2013 now say summer sea ice will probably be gone in this decade.
The original prediction, made in 2007, gained Wieslaw Maslowski’s team a deal of criticism from some of their peers.
And one of the projections it comes out with is that the summer melt could lead to ice-free Arctic seas by 2016 – “plus or minus three years”.
3. October 4 2013: Deny it ever happened –
“The clamor is being raised over Al Gore’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech quote supposedly saying that Arctic sea ice would be gone by 2013.- 1 What Gore did or didn’t say is beside the point …
Maslowski also did not say “by 2013″ in his original research in 2007 or when it was republished in 2009.
This grandstanding about sea ice and Gore, for whatever reason, is a huge and egregious deception.
The actual prediction from Maslowski’s 2009 publication is, “Autumn could become near ice free between 2011 and 2016.”
Al Gore. Climate fraud.
