Never mind that the antartic has been gain ice for years.

All the believers are acting like no end of the world is the end of the world.
I apologize if I'm repeating myself (it's hard to keep up with the discussion).
The warm water is increased precipitation on Antarctica,but the glacial losses each year outpace the snowfall,for a net loss of ice.
The continent has lost enough that its experiencing tectonic uplift.
Also it's a sleeping giant volcanically.Tectonic movements elsewhere are enough to trigger asperity-locked,fault rupture-related eruptions.

He is referring to sea ice.

And the possibility that sea ice will disappear within the next few years.

We're still on track to get there, eventually.

Again, howeer, Al Gore is NOT a scientist. He is almost as guilty of misreading the data analyses as deniers are.
Some of the models show a 75% chance that the Arctic ice will be gone for some of the summer in 5-7 years. <--- This is not a "prediction" - it is reporting what the worst case modeling was.

I was told man made global warming was supposed to make summer last until November.
I wish man made global warming was real too.
With business as usual,we're looking at 8.1-degrees F global average temperature increase by 2100.
This might not change frequency or temporal changes,but it would change the intensity of any seasonal event.

Well their's always the antartic......
The Arctic is not yet at it's minimum yet, this year. Check out the interactive graph:

https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/c...sea-ice-graph/

The Antarctic is at a new record low ice area:



It was at a record high, in just 2014. So it has swung a huge amount, in a very short period of time.

Even around leaky old nuclear reactors (which mostly have failsafes built into them nowadays, anyway).



More like millenia. The antarctic ice cover has been growing for thousands of years.

But that growth is slowing down.

You don't look at absolutes, you look at trends. And that trend is showing a reversal, as losses of ice in some areas look set to outstrip general gains.
As of 2015,they were losing more from glaciers than they were gaining from snow.Winds have increased in velocity by 10-15% over the last 30-years and are literally blowing snow off the ice cap before it can stick.

that's what they did

We already know they never ever share source data for global warming computer models with the general public.
Probably because you can program computer modeling to literally show anything you want and that's what they did.

any of these?

I believe that when sulfate aerosols were included in the General Circulation Model,in 1995, that they got a match for the first time.

I'm looking at an article at home,from a Milankovitch cycle expert who got into climate change research.He's talking about 3-camps of belief:
*Skeptics (which includes all scientists)
*Deniers (who reject science and empirical evidence)
*Believers (who defer to the scientific community)
He also mentions Albert Gore Jr.,and one other,who he labelled passionate 'Exaggeraters'.
and in the same sentence expresses gratitude to Gore for attempting to bring a conversation about climate change to the general public.

You'd think that is the first thing the public should see if trying to convince them of the future. While that link said models are hindcasted, they didn't show the hind-casting and accuracy.
I have a reference to a General Circulation Model which showed a statistically-accurate fit,backwards and forwards,compared to observed data, in 1995.
I'll see if I can find it.
