Classic.

“A ship which was used to rescue by helicopter 52 people from a trapped Antarctic ship has now found itself in need of rescue – after it got stuck in heavy ice.

Having not moved for several days while preparing to airlift the passengers, the Chinese-owned Snow Dragon is now wedged in ice.

The ship was used as a launch pad to pick up the passengers on Thursday, after they had spent nine days stranded. Their ship, the Akademik Shokalskiy, became wedged in ice on Christmas Eve as it was heading towards Antarctica.”

The fact that the Akademik Shokalskiv was stacked with assorted lefty eco-loons, Guardianistas and BBC types all out to prove the ice is melting and we are all doomed, doomed I say, is delicious. By the way, one hopes that the helicopter that did finally lift them off their ship of fools are carbon neutral…

    Nothing to see here, move along now ..

  2. It’s summer down there, mid-summer. Could we not send them some solar panels…..or something?

  3. “Australia experienced its hottest year on record in 2013, officials have said. Temperatures were 1.2C above the long term average, the warmest since records began in 1910, the Bureau of Meteorology said in its annual report.”

  4. “Temperature rises resulting from unchecked climate change will be at the severe end of those projected, according to a new scientific study. The scientist leading the research said that unless emissions of greenhouse gases were cut, the planet would heat up by a minimum of 4C by 2100, twice the level the world’s governments deem dangerous.

    The research indicates that fewer clouds form as the planet warms, meaning less sunlight is reflected back into space, driving temperatures up further still. The way clouds affect global warming has been the biggest mystery surrounding future climate change.”

  5. Harri –

    Not just the BBC, but a Professor Steven Sherwood. The man’s a crank and a liar.

    Back to the Clitanic: it seems that the passengers had been off sightseeing and ignored the Captain’s instructions to get back on board otherwise they’d get stuck in all that non-ice.

    Absolutely splendid. It just gets funnier and funnier.

    Why not consider the scientific evidence? Would it help you if it was being reported by the Daily Mail?

    Australia has had a record hot year. Fact.

    Not in the slightest.

  8. Peter,

    By the way, the Daily Mail bangs on more about Global Warming than it does anti-smoking propaganda.

  9. But why not consider the evidence? Why dismiss record high temperatures in Australia as irrelevant as you obviously do?

  10. Peter

    Presicely, why not all evidence, and why not evidence not linked to the usual suspects ..

    Here you are, we can all learn and broaden our horizons ..

    Climate Change Reconsidered II: Physical Science

    http://www.nipccreport.org/reports/ccr2a/ccr2physicalscience.html

    Or is the debate really over and all the ‘Science settled’ as those Five star luxury living, first cless travel to the worlds most exotic locations members of the elite club the IPCC tell us?

  11. Any evidence not put forward by the IPCC I would consider ..

    The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) is what its name suggests: an international panel of nongovernment scientists and scholars who have come together to understand the causes and consequences of climate change. Because we are not predisposed to believe climate change is caused by human greenhouse gas emissions, we are able to look at evidence the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) ignores. Because we do not work for any governments, we are not biased toward the assumption that greater government activity is necessary.
    The NIPCC traces its roots to a meeting in Milan in 2003 organized by the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), a nonprofit research and education organization based in Arlington, Virginia. SEPP, in turn, was founded in 1990 by Dr. S. Fred Singer, an atmospheric physicist, and incorporated in 1992 following Dr. Singer’s retirement from the University of Virginia.

  12. Strangely enough, from my point of view, the biggest most single problem for all ‘Global warming’ theorists, are the IPCC themselves.

    They are all on one big jolly.

    So there is no evidence that would convince you that AGW is correct. Thought so.

    See above posts for more information Peter.

    So there is no evidence that would convince you that AGW is correct. Thought so.

    You said that not me.

  14. No, you didn’t answer my question, so the conclusion is obvious.

    But at least you appear to accept that the planet has warmed in the past 150 years, or don’t you?

  15. Peter

    No, Apart from all the IPCC waffle, lies and deceit. I have seen no evidence

    860-page careful, dispassionate, thoroughly scientific volume, produced in conjunction with the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP) and the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, explored the full range of alternative views to the UN’s IPCC. Two years later, Heartland published the 418 page Climate Change Reconsidered: The 2011 Interim Report of the NIPCC, which updated the research regarding global warming and “climate change” since the 2009 volume.

    Peter,

    Some scientific research you might wish to consider other than that of the UN or the IPCC

  16. Peter

    Carbon credits is not a scam then?

    Look, lets say for arguments sake that Solar flares are the cause of warming (if any exists) they would be hard pushed to tax us for that one, no doubt they will still find a way, but a tad more difficult I would assume.

    Disband the UN and the IPCC .. then lets talk.

  17. I have seen no evidence

    Then you are wilfully blind.

    “When President Taft created Glacier National Park in 1910, it was home to an estimated 150 glaciers. Since then the number has decreased to fewer than 30, and most of those remaining have shrunk in area by two-thirds. Fagre predicts that within 30 years most if not all of the park’s namesake glaciers will disappear.”

    Link here

    “Since 1870 the Argentière Glacier and Mont Blanc Glacier have receded by 1,150 m (3,770 ft) and 1,400 m (4,600 ft), respectively. The largest glacier in France, the Mer de Glace, which is 11 km (6.8 mi) long and 400 m (1,300 ft) thick, has lost 8.3% of its length, or 1 km (0.62 mi), in 130 years, and thinned by 27%, or 150 m (490 ft), in the midsection of the glacier since 1907. The Bossons Glacier in Chamonix, France, has retreated 1,200 m (3,900 ft) from extents observed in the early 20th century. In 2010, out of 95 Swiss glaciers studied, 86 retreated from where their terminal points had been in 2009, 6 showed no change and 3 had advanced.[8]”

    “Glaciers have been retreating worldwide since the end of the Little Ice Age (around 1850), but in recent decades glaciers have begun melting at rates that cannot be explained by historical trends. Projected climate change over the next century will further increase the rate at which glaciers melt. Average global temperatures are expected to rise between 1.4 and 5.8°C by the end of the 21st century. Simulations project that a 4°C rise in temperature would cause nearly all of the world’s glaciers to melt.”

    I could respect your doubts about AGW, but your refusal to accept that temperatures have risen makes you a joke. So post what you like, I won’t be responding.

    Now who is the ‘Denier’ ?

    Maybe you missed this one ..

    You are in denial as to just why the Earth is warming (if it is warming)

    How is that.

  22. Harri

    Melting glaciers all over the planet (and there is plenty of photographic evidence of this) points towards rising temperatures all over the planet. Better evidence that thermomoter records.

    But you deny that temperatures have risen, so presumably you believe that the melting glacier evidence is faked.

    Are you a Truther by any chance?

    But is it Man-made?

    I don’t think so.

  24. Harri

    So you now admit that temperatures have risen? That’s progress.

    The causes can be debated, but not the facts of melting glaciers.

  25. Are you a Truther by any chance?

    Peter – what’s a ‘truther’ and why is ‘truth’ being used in a derogatory manner?

  26. Peter – if global temperatures have risen, can you determine that it’s caused by man-emitted CO2? Btw, I don’t consider there to be anything conclusive one way or the other. Discussion and debate on this matter is simply impossible so I have withdrawn.
