Ice? What ice? There’s no ……….. CRASH!!!!!!!! Ooops!

(Wednesday blog)

2014 Antarctic ice melting!!!!!!

You might remember the joy many of us experienced back in 2014. A Russian research ship, the Akademik Shokalskiy, was leased from the Russians, filled with dead-brained, dumb-assed Greenies and film crews and headed off to the Antarctic to prove that the Antarctic ice was melting due to Global Warming or Climate Change or whatever it’s called this week. Unfortunately the ice didn’t know it was meant to be melting and was unusually thick. The boat got stuck in the ice for 9 days:

Then a rescue ice-breaker sent to evacuate the vacuous Greenies got stuck in the ice. Then a second rescue ice-breaker couldn’t get through the ice but managed to send a helicopter to take the Greenies back to safety on dry land from where they could all fly back to their centrally-heated homes.

North-West passage ice-free

Then a couple of weeks ago, if I remember correctly, the BBC and C4 News got all excited over a story that the Russians were planning to send a group of cargo ships through the North-West passage to prove that this was now navigable due to melting ice.

2018 Arctic ice melting!!!!!!!

Well, here’s a story the BBC and C4 News won’t be mentioning. Just this week another Russian research ship, the Akademik Ioffe, was hired by another bunch of braindead, dumb-ass Greenies to sail up through the North-West Passage to prove the Arctic ice was melting.

OK, you’ve guessed what happened. Actually, we’re not exactly sure. The Greenies said their ship had “run aground”. However, other versions of the story say it got stuck in ice. In fact, this year the Arctic ice (the black line on the graph below) is the thickest it has been since 2014:

And the Canadian coastguard have even sent out a warning:

Good morning, Due to heavier than normal ice concentrations in the Canadian arctic waters north of 70 degrees, the Canadian Coast Guard, recommends that pleasure craft do not navigate in the Beaufort Sea, Barrow, Peel Sound, Franklin Strait and Prince Regent. CCG icebreakers cannot safely escort pleasure craft. Operators of pleasure craft considering a northwest passage should also consider the risk of having to winter in a safe haven in the Arctic, or in the case of an emergency, be evacuated from beset vessels. Safety of mariners is our primary concern. REGARDS, NORDREG CANADA 181256UTC\LR

Anyway, whether the Greenies’ ship got stuck on rocks or got stuck in ice, no fewer than two Canadian coastguard ice-breakers had to be sent to refloat the Greenies’ boat.

Perhaps the Greenies will now fly to the Bahamas, do some filming of a beach with palm trees and claim the film was really taken in the Arctic and thus proves Global Warming or whatever is happening at a frightening rate and soon we’ll all roast to death? I’m sure the ‘climate researchers’ and serial email fiddlers at East Anglia University’s thoroughly discredited Climate Research Institute, the good people who brought us Climategate, will enthusiastically verify that the Bahamas film was actually taken in the Arctic.

Does the BBC fake its Global Warming filming?

And while we’re on the subject of faking stuff to supposedly ‘prove’ Global Warming, none less than the BBC’s own science correspondent, David Shukman, admitted in a book that some film crews (though never the totally honest BBC, of course) used explosives to cause glaciers to collapse at just the right moment so they could film the collapse and attribute it to Global Warming or Climate Change or whatever.

Here’s a little bit of the BBC’s own film of glaciers supposedly ‘collapsing’. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if a few explosive charges were used to ‘help’ the glaciers collapse in just the right way when the BBC cameras happened to be set up in just the right place at just the right time.

You’ll notice that about 40 seconds into the video clip there appear to be a series of small explosions fairly far back from the edge of the ice. But are these apparent explosions just a natural phenomenon, what presenter Sir David Attenborough calls “a rupture deep within the glacier”? Or are the BBC doing what BBC science correspondent David Shukman described in his book and giving the ‘collapsing glacier’ a helping hand?

    The BBC license fee should be scrapped. How can they force people under the threat of court to pay for this left wing clap trap?

    It would be amusing were it not that this country’s ‘global warming’ obsession is going to cost we consumers and our country’s economy billions trying vainly in the future to implement that halfwit Ed Milliband’s Climate Change Act; setting omission targets, impossible for an advanced economy to achieve, but will destroy our future prosperity. Britain is the only country in the world committed by law to cut its carbon omissions by 80 percent in 30 years The level of CO2 omissions is an indications of a country’s prosperity and affluence, so that means we will be existing at the standard of living of an average sub-African country.

    Perhaps the Greenies could head off to the Pacific and try to prove that the sea levels are rising by sailing over one of the islands they claim are disappearing under the waves.

    On a more serious note, I am not really interested whether these films of glaciers calving are faked. It falls into the same category of steam coming out of cooling towers when release of CO2 is being discussed, in other words totally misleading.

    In the case of glaciers, Attenborough did give the clue to it all when he said the glacier had reached the ocean and they did not have the support of their rocky bed. This is not glaciers melting, it is glaciers growing. When they grow they move downward, down mountains in the Alps and in this case into the sea. This is the sign of a cooling climate, not a warming climate. Explosives might have been used but this event would occur naturally at some point.
