If these people weren’t so bloody stupid they would be laughable. At least laughable to a serious informed person who KNOWS that weather is the reason shite happens like ice storms, heat waves, floods, snowfalls and all other major natural events which are driven by the sun cycle, NOT by human beings consuming too much meat and heating their homes!
Now these idiots are stuck in the Antarctic waiting for an ice breaker to crunch it’s way through to save them from FREEZING TO DEATH!
One sad note here is that AL Gore isn’t with them!
2013 was a big year for ice with global sea ice hitting or nearing record highs.
A dramatic example caught the attention of the world Christmas morning, when a vessel hired by group of global warming scientists radioed for help after becoming trapped in ice off Antarctica. The Russian m/v Akademik Shokalskiy has 74 researchers and crew aboard and they managed to celebrate Christmas despite their frozen predicament.
The Chinese ice breaker Snow Dragon steamed to the rescue and was last reported six nautical miles away, but has now found itself blocked by the ice. Its captain said, “the current ice conditions is exceeding our capability to break through further.”
Chris Turney, who is a professor of climate change at the University of New South Wales, is the leader of the expedition. He posted a video to Youtube optimistically predicting that Snow Dragon would reach his position within a few hours, but the ice breaker was forced to turn back.
Other vessels are headed to the scene and Snow Dragon is waiting and hoping that high winds will push aside some of the ten foot thick ice enabling it to reach the trapped researchers.
The waters around Antarctica experienced remarkable sea ice expansion in 2013 confounding the global warming ice narrative.
Global warming campaigners have been stymied by the lack of any temperature increase in the major temperature data sets since the nineties. They’ve tried to compensate by feeding the media a steady stream of “extreme weather” stories and with shrill claims about polar ice. However, historical and scientific data shows today’s weather to be normal. 2013 was in fact particularly tame by many standards with no hurricanes making landfall in the U.S. and data on droughts, fires heat wave, floods, etc. all coming in at or below average.
The global warming campaign seized on northern sea ice in an attempt to find some evidence to show warming. Northern ice has had a few sparse years recently. Al Gore told COP 15, the UN climate conference in Copenhagen, that the North Pole could be “completely ice free” within five to seven years. However, 2013 did not cooperate with that narrative either, as northern ice expanded over 50 percent above 2012 levels. Yachts and research vessels attempting to make news by transiting the Northwest Passage became trapped in the ice and their attempts had to be abandoned. See, Gullible green sailors trapped in the Arctic. Likewise, alarmist claims about polar bears have run afoul of the facts as polar bear populations continue to expand and thrive.
