Al Gore: We're Doomed
love the man, or think he's a quack, one can not dispute Al Gore's
solid commitment and passion in publicizing Global Warming.
Today, Al Gore said that climate change is occurring far
more rapidly than even the worst predictions of the UN's Nobel
Recent evidence shows "the climate crisis is significantly
worse and unfolding more rapidly than those on the pessimistic
side of the IPCC projections had warned us," climate campaigner
and former US vice-president Gore said.
There are now forecasts that the North Pole ice caps may disappear
entirely during summer months within five years, he told a gathering
at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
issued a massive report the size of three phone books on the reality
and risks of climate change, its 4th assessment in 18 years.
Global warming is a key theme at this year's meeting of the world's
business and political elite in Davos.
