Al Gore Admits Fudging His Source...And Is Schooled By His Source

Wow, first it was hypocrisy, then it was ClimateGate, and now this:
Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has admitted that alarming figures on Arctic icemelt he cited in Copenhagen, Denmark, were only "ballpark."

Gore, speaking at the U.N. summit on climate change, told attendees that "fresh" estimates by Wieslaw Maslowski of the Naval Postgraduate School in California indicated "that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years," The Times of London reported.

But Maslowski challenged that characterization, reportedly saying, "It's unclear to me how this figure was arrived at. I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this."

Aw, shucks. What's a green billionaire to do when his entire livelihood is proven to be a load of crap?

Maybe he'll have to get a real job.

There's my two cents.
