Maybe the Grand-daddy of promoting the Global Warming/Chicken Little climate theory is on the MV Akademic Shokalskiy, a Russian boat loaded with scientists studying Global Warming in the Antarctica. But oops, that braintrust is….stuck in the ice. There is a Santa Claus!
It gets better, or worse. A Chinese icebreaker, the Snow Dragon, saved the scientists (and maybe Al?) and flew them to their boat by helicopter, But now that boat, too, is stuck in the ice. Must not be a fire-breathing dragon boat. As I type this, the weather in Louisiana is rising back from near single digits. Global Warming is a beast.
Even in their internationally embarrassing situation, these Warmies still defy reality. Chris Turney, a professor of climate change from Australia actually said it was “silly” that he and 73 others were trapped by ice that they were out to prove was melting.
“We’re stuck in our own experiment” he said, further adding that the biggest icebergs in the world were trapping ice now due to…you guessed it – global warming…. Hey, Jack, you guys are stuck in a lot more than ice. I’d call that a brain freeze.
This doesn’t have much to do with hunting or fishing, but we always like a good laugh and these snowmen have given us one with this warming, winter story. I have always said that people who enjoy the outdoors in any fashion are much more environmentally conscious and proactive than people who get paid to study things that don’t exist.
Sure, the climate changes. Weather trends change. Mother Mother doesn’t have a thermostat that can be set and everything be “normal”. And I don’t have to get stuck in the ice to know that.
