    All the claims I hear are "In 100 years ..."  which is the complete opposite of "Next year, Florida will be under water!"

      Al gore? Not one of the predictions from the experts in the 90's  has been right. You can't blame people for not believing it when  there are so many flakes giving doomsday dates. The diarist claims there will be no arctic sea ice in 2016.

      When there is still arctic sea ice in three years, no matter, they will simply make another ridiculous prediction.

      It also doesn't help that the biggest proponents of climate change are invested in it financially.

      I'm afraid that my signature won't match the mood of my comment.
