More eco-loonies caught in ice that should have melted

(Wednesday blog)

Boris – humiliated or winning against the swamp?

I have difficulty watching the news nowadays. It’s so blatantly biased against Brexit in general and Boris Johnson in particular. On Monday this week, reporters were salivating as they reported that Boris Johnson had been ‘humiliated’ by the House of Conmen and Crooks when Johnson tried for a second time to get a General Election. But was Johnson really ‘humiliated’? I suspect he knew well that he would lose the vote because Labour are terrified of an election they know they would lose:

As for Johnson, what he was really trying to do was to reinforce his position as the champion of the ‘people vs parliament’ in preparation for the next general election.

Who is responsible for all the knife crime?

I did try to watch Monday’s Panorama. It was about rising knife crime. I only watched about ten minutes. But one thing I did notice was that there didn’t seem to be any white ethnic Brits. All those involved appeared to be from a diverse, vibrant, multi-cultural background.

I wonder what this could be telling us?

Eco-loon nonsense exposed yet again?

Let’s start this piece of the blog with a nice picture:

Yup, you guessed it. It’s yet another ship full of eco-loons getting caught in supposedly non-existent ice and being winched up into a helicopter to be flown to safety.

The Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and the North Pole. The ship is on an Arctic tour with a Climate Change documentary film team and tourists concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice. All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. Seven crew remain on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.

Clearly there is something very wrong with the Arctic ice. It hasn’t melted as it was ordered to by Al Gore and the IPCC and the UN and Ed Miliband and C4 News and the BBC and Saint Greta patron saint of the cervically-challenged.

Here’s another nice picture:

This is from July this year.

The research vessel and icebreaker “Crown Prince Haakon” had to turn back because it met thicker and more massive sea ice than expected.“…Thick one-year ice, combined with large batches of multi-year ice. In many places, wind and ocean currents have pushed the ice together into powerful helmets, and several of these are impenetrable to us,” said Captain Johnny Peder Hansen.

The ice is still 3m (10ft) thick, in mid-July. Even the researchers’ long special-purpose chainsaws proved hopeless, while the 20,000 horsepower Kronprins Haakon, at a cost of USD $175 million, failed miserably at attempts to push through. “In the middle of July, we saw a few signs of thawing and [assumed] that spring had come”, said Captain Hansen, who for several decades has worked on various vessels in the Arctic. “We had expected more melting.”

Klassekampen (Class War), a respected left-leaning Norwegian newspaper wrote: “Polar bears were seen on Bjørnøya this past winter –located in the middle of the Barents Sea– which shows that the ice edge was very far south.

This is about the sixth or seventh time in recent years that a research ship full of eco-loons has been caught in ice the eco-loons keep telling us had melted.

How can anyone take these idiots seriously?

You won’t see these stories on the BBC or C4 News

A few weeks ago, C4 News did a several-day report on the supposedly ‘catastrophic’ melting of the Greenland glaciers. And, of course the BBC hardly lets a day go by without bleating about Global Warming or Climate Change or Climate Breakdown or Extinction or whatever it’s called this week.

So, I guess that neither the BBC nor C4 News will see fit to mention these latest two eco-loon farces as, yet again, ships full of Greeny activists get stuck in ice they assured us couldn’t possibly exist.

    “The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far North as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

    Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.”

    I must apologise….

    I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 96 years ago.

    This must have been caused by the Model T Ford exhaust, or possibly from horse and cattle gases!

    Priceless, William! As they say, you couldn’t make it up!

    A pity that Greta didn’t take a longer scenic route to New York. She might have learned something.

    Here is an interesting video from a few years ago about adopting a precautionary principle on any issue, but related to climate, when we have science. This should be shown in every school, not the Al Gore nonsense. It is a long video but worth staying with it.
