Future historians may point to this one ironic event as the trigger that finally ended the Progressive brainwashing of the public about global warming.

The Australasian Antarctic Expedition was stuck fast over Christmas and New Year in Antarctic sea ice. In summer. The ice beat back three ice-breakers.

How can this be? Isn’t global warming melting the ice and flooding the coast?

Al Gore certainly says so. Last summer he checked out Antarctica to report: “The ice on land is melting at a faster rate and large ice sheets are moving towards the ocean more rapidly. As a result, sea levels are rising worldwide.”

And yet here were climate scientists imperilled in sea ice.

On the MV Akademik Shokalskiy were 22 scientists, 26 tourists, 22 Russian crew and four UK journalists. Expedition leader Chris Turney is a professor of climate change….

The nuttiness is readily apparent. The expedition issued a statement that, “Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change, but here ice is building up.” Bad luck, really. The climate scientists were in the one bit of Antarctica where there’s ice.

The nuttiness is that only last year the high priests of global warming admitted that their computer models were wrong: Antarctic sea ice is increasing, not decreasing. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment declared: “Most models simulate a decrease in Antarctic sea ice extent over the past few decades compared to the small but significant increase observed” (s. 9.4.3.1).

The expedition relied on computer models, not real world reports. “That can’t be sea ice, the computer says so!” And please, keep worrying: our being stuck proves global warming!

The expedition’s story now is that global warming melted a big iceberg creating the ice that trapped them. That’s the climate alarmists’ nuttiness in a nutshell: nothing proves them wrong; everything proves them right.

PROGRESSIVE IDEOLOGY REQUIRES THAT REALITY AND EMPIRICISM BE DAMNED.

  2. Gore’s Global Warming Secret

    You’ll never guess what initially inspired Al Gore’s “temperature” mania – the one that’s raised our tempers.
    Well, Gore is from Tennessee where you can hear Bible belt preachers warning about “Hell fire” in the next life.
    And Gore, concerned about this life, is surrounded by those who also know about the prediction in Revelation (chapter 16) of the coming time when a change in the sun will result in humans being “scorched with great heat”!
    It wouldn’t be convenient if folks were to discover that Gore, a liberal, was influenced by the handbook closely associated with Christian fundamentalists!
    If Tennessee fundy preachers could look at the same predictions-packed apocalyptic book and stretch forward in time some future events, Gore could surely do the same thing and stretch forward the “great heat” and turn it into cold cash.
    All of us are well aware of the incredible influence that the Gore-orrhea plague has had on the whole world including the White House!
    But Gore’s overlooked another Bible verse which says that “there is nothing hid that shall not be revealed.”
    The real “inconvenient truth” is that the SS Al Gore is now stuck in ice – and what we need is a Gorebreaker!
