In other words, “it could be caused by Al Gore’s patented doomsday shtick that’s been around for a couple decades, or something that’s been happening since the Earth formed — you be the judge.”

It’s actually a jarring reminder that Gore’s an agenda-driven, greedy science hack. The same article Gore cites as more evidence of what’s being caused by global warming debunks Al’s “settled science”:
There is no scientific consensus over whether global warming is to blame.
“While it might not be caused by global warming, it’s at least a natural laboratory to study how breakups will occur at other ice shelves to improve the theoretical basis for our projections of future sea level rise,” said Thomas P. Wagner, who leads NASA’s efforts to study the polar regions.
This is my favorite part:
Some climate scientists believe the warming in the region was at least in part a consequence of human-caused climate change, while others have disputed that, seeing a large role for natural variability — and noting that icebergs have been breaking away from ice shelves for many millions of years.
