(NaturalNews) Hey, don't look now, but former Vice President Al Gore, whose championing of "global warming" and "climate change" has made him fabulously wealthy, has been lying to you all along about just serious the "danger" is from these manufactured global "crises."

Because the process has been co-opted by hard Left progressives, Gore was given a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his yeoman work in promoting "solutions" to the phony problem of global warming (remember, President Obama was given one just months after taking office, though he'd yet to do anything to advance the cause of "peace," save for a delivering a few speeches apologizing for America's past greatness).

Yeah, about that scary prediction...

During his speech, Gore said that unless the U.S. and China made bold climate change moves, we would "stand accountable before history" for failing to act.

"We, the human species, are confronting a planetary emergency - a threat to the survival of our civilization that is gathering ominous and destructive potential even as we gather here," he said (Gore shared the prize that year with Rajendra Pachauri, head of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, another crackpot institution used to fear-mongering for gain).

"It is time to make peace with the planet," said Gore, whose own home in Tennessee uses 20 times more energy than average homes in the same region. "We must quickly mobilize our civilization with the urgency and resolve that has previously been seen only when nations mobilized for war."

In his speech, dubbed, "Earth Has A Fever," Gore referred to a prediction by U.S. climate scientist Wieslaw Maslowski that the Arctic's summer ice could "completely disappear" by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions.

He went on to say that "scientists reported with unprecedented alarm that the North Polar icecap is, in their words, 'falling off a cliff.' One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Another new study to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers later this week warns that it could happen in as little as seven years, seven years from now."

And Maslowski himself told members of the American Geophysical Union the same year that the Arctic's summer ice could completely disappear within the decade.

"If anything, our projection of 2013 for the removal of ice in summer... is already too conservative," he said.

Fast-forward to the present day.

Per CNSNews.com:

[I]nstead of completely melting away, the polar icecap is at now at its highest level for this time of year since 2006.

Satellite photos of the Arctic taken by NASA in August 2012 and August 2013 show a 60 percent increase in the polar ice sheet, more than half the size of Europe, despite "realistic" predictions by climate scientists six years ago that the North Pole would be completely melted by now.


Climate-change Gore: The $200 million man

Unlike the dire predictions of phony "peace prize" recipient Gore and his cadre of "expert" scientists, instead of polar ice caps shrinking and drowning the world in a sea of water, the caps - as verified with official NASA photography - are growing in size. "The thick layer of summer ice, which currently stretches from Canada to Russia, is preventing ships from using the North-West Passage," CNSNews noted.

NASA spokesman Steve Cole told CNSNews.com that the space agency is in charge of monitoring polar ice "as part of our Earth sciences" mandate.

"We have a number of different satellites orbiting the Earth and observing the ice sheets and a lot of other things around the clock, and we are funded to collect that data," he said.

If anything, Gore should apologize for using his phony climate change shtick to help him amass a $200 million fortune.
