Al Gore recently spoke about the potential for polar ice in the Artic Ocean to vanish in five to seven years.
Copenhagen (WiredPRNews.com) – Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore recently spoke at a U.N. climate conference regarding a new projection on developments in the Artic Ocean. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Gore stated that ice may vanish from the ocean in five to seven years.
Gore is quoted by the AP as stating of the projection, “It is hard to capture the astonishment that the experts in the science of ice felt when they saw this… 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 will be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years.”
Some maintain however, that the dramatic change isn’t expected until 2030.
