Is there no end to this guy?

Despite record cold temperatures across the Midwest (not to mention how cold it's been here; it was 10 degrees Monday morning in Frederick, 16 degrees today - not records, but cold nonetheless), Al Gore insists on humping his ridiculous lie.

Climate change is occurring far more rapidly than even the worst predictions of the UN's Nobel Prize-winning scientific panel on climate change, Al Gore said on Thursday.

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. (emphasis mine)
What a colossal load of sheep dip!

How much longer do we have to put up with this crap? I mean, COME ON! How many different ways can you piss on a lie before the flame extinguishes. THERE IS NO MAN-MADE GLOBAL WARMING! Get over yourself, tool!

UPDATE: I wrote this yesterday full of wrath and fury - but neglected to do the one thing that I feel is of the utmost importance in fighting the lie of man-made global warming; I didn't provide the facts as to WHY Gore's claim that the ice caps will disappear is such a patent falsehood. First, let's start with the statistics on the ice itself. For the sake of simplicity, I'll stick with the Northern ice pack; it's already been proven by independent scientists that the Antarctic ice pack is GROWING.
Earth's north pole is covered by floating pack ice (sea ice) over the Arctic Ocean, the Arctic ice pack. Portions of the ice that don't melt seasonally can get very thick, up to 3–4 meters thick over large areas, with ridges up to 20 meters thick. One-year ice is usually about a meter thick. The area covered by sea ice ranges between 9 and 12 million km. In addition, the Greenland ice sheet covers about 1.71 million km and contains about 2.6 million km of ice.
Okay, so Al Goebbels want us to believe that MILLIONS of killimeters of ice 3 meters thick is simply going to DISAPPEAR in 5 years!!!! Currently, north pole temparatures range between -45 to -15 in the winter, while summer temperatures average out at around freezing. I'm no scientist, but I live in a place where there is occasional ice and snow. I'm aware of the kind of temperature increase it takes to melt just one foot of snow in a week (think: 10-20 degrees above freezing). So, you're telling me, Mr. Gore, that we're going to get temperature increases sufficient to melt the HUMONGOUS ice pack described above in a mere FIVE YEARS??? You're either the biggest born liar this world has ever seen, or you're certifiably insane. I choose the former.

Please go away.
