    I wonder what their research findings were.... I will be waiting for the report.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Finding someone who disagrees with you for an irrational reason does not justify being irrational yourself. It's like beating a pig in a wrestling match; you may feel smug, but at the end of the day you're both just covered in crap.

    Please, weather events is all we're told about. Ah oh, those hurricanes during hurricane season proves AGW.

You can be a climate change denier and still believe in the sun, much in the same way as those who accept climate change can still believe in very cold weather.

    Irony requires a twist; ie when an effect is realized because of actions taken to avoid it. It would be ironic if they people on the ice breaker didn't believe in ice, and then became trapped in what they didn't believe in. It's ironic when people try to use a weather event as evidence for a climatic argument; because the only thing it proves is the ignorance of the one making the argument.
    If those who perpetuated the false narrative of AGW didn't use computer generated polar bears stranded on floating Ice Packs because of melting polar ice you might have a point.

    But the fact that we were told polar ice caps were disaplearing at an alarming rate DUE TO AGW and that the Liberal Democrats could save us, (for a price of course ) makes it ironic that explorers looking for "evidence" of global warming became trapped by growing sea ice.

    You know, why did they even board that boat ? The Pro AGW crowd never needed objective proof before.

    Die hard to the end....

    The leader of a scientific expedition whose ship remains stranded in Antarctic ice says the team, which set out to prove climate change, is "stuck in our own experiment."

    But Chris Turney, a professor of climate change at Australia’s University of New South Wales, said it was “silly” to suggest he and 73 others aboard the MV Akademic Shokalskiy were trapped in ice they’d sought to prove had melted. He remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas.

    I don't even know what the link says, I didn't open it. The reason that I am aware of is that warmer oceans cause more precipitation.

    Now I'll open the link and see if it says that.

    Communism is the Mother Church of Strange Beliefs with Liberalism being one of its many branches. Within these branches comes the belief in, or concerns about, Global Warming, Poison Rain, Bird flu, Overpopulation, Frankenfoods, Organic anything, New Age, and so on. These frights occur as frequently as new philosophies designed to free the soul appear, from shouting in a forest to group hugs, to 500 people holding hands and lying naked in the sand chanting in Swahili..
