Scientists have once again set up a mock Arctic base camp to educate world leaders about man-made global warming at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Climate scientists hope their mock camp illustrates how global warming could impact the Arctic, but the “Gore effect” may make it harder to get the message across. Davos has seen frigid temperatures along with about six feet of snow in the last six days.
Note: the “Gore effect” is when unseasonably cold temperatures, driving rain, hail, or snow whenever Al Gore visits an area to discuss global warming.
The “Gore effect” during the global warming presentations at Davos is deliciously ironic!
