Business Journal (Central New York);6/23/2006, Vol. 20 Issue 25, p33
The article presents information on a bet for $10,000 between the author and Al Gore, former Vice President of the U.S., on the issue of global warming. The decision regarding the bet would be taken after ten years. According to Gore, within 10 years, glaciers of Antarctica would melt and collapse into the sea due to strong heat waves, and many cities of the U.S. would be immersed in water. All this would happen due to global warming. The author is not satisfied with the forecast made by Gore. According to the author, the overall temperature of the earth would fall in future. Many prominent scientists of the world, including Professor Bob Carter from Australia, have criticized the prediction of Gore. The author is confident of winning the bet.
