Frostbite Ends Global Warming Trek


  1. an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.
  2. the incongruity of this.
  3. an objectively sardonic style of speech or writing.

MINNEAPOLIS – A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite. The explorers, Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen, on Saturday called off what was intended to be a 530-mile trek across the Arctic Ocean after Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold temperatures drained the batteries in some of their electronic equipment.


"They were experiencing temperatures that weren't expected with global warming," Atwood said. "But one of the things we see with global warming is unpredictability."

And idiotic statements. It was colder then normal, so it must have been global warming, eh? Absurd.

The thing is, it doesn't matter if there is a "consensus" among scientists, which there really isn't, that global warming is happening and it is because of Mankind. Science is about facts, not consensus. At one time, everyone knew that the Earth was flat. Everyone knew that the Earth was the center of the universe, and everything rotated around it, even the Sun. Everyone knew that sickness was caused by demons, so they used leeches to bleed the demons out. Science showed them otherwise.

Meanwhile, the New York Times tells Internet Al to chill out on the hysterical, non scientific, exagerated and erroneous talk. Heh!

Martin at MY Vast Right Wing Conspiracy worries about becoming a one club golfer. Hey, you're hitting them pretty well, Martin.

Senor Kerry joins the global warming cabal by launching a book tour. Yup, cause we all know how much he has helped on this issue in the past. Maybe Teresa wants him out of the house? And, he should talk to his buddy Ted Kennedy, who keeps blocking the Cape Wind Project.

Update: I missed the part that said they were retreating to, get this, Resolute, Canada. You just can't make this stuff up if you tried!Laughing

    As I understand it leeches were used for bloodletting in order to restore balance of the “four humors” in the body (as prescribed by Hippocrates). I totally agree with you, though, that science deals in facts. Could you please cite the scientific literature you keep referring to that refutes the IPCC’s conclusions?

  2. The IPCC document is a political document, Silke, as much as Gore’s movie is. And consensus is not science.

  3. Silke says:

    Yes it is a political document in the sense that it provides policymakers with a summary of the current state of understanding on climate change.

    Again, what scientific literature are you basing your information on?

    PS The frostbite article was pretty funny 🙂

    How many times does this have to happen before people stop listening to these morons.

    Their mantra is simple and actually hasn’t changed since the 70s: If the weather changes, it’s man’s fault, and you should give us money because of it.

  5. basically, Silke, I am basing my arguments on hundreds of millions of years of changing climate. I am basing my arguments on research about the Sun and natural earth forces. And, if people are saying “hey, Man is the primary or only cause of global warming, mostly because of cars,” I want to see their scientific data and documentation to prove that hypothesis, especially since cars were not around in volume for about 2/3 of the time that Man is being blamed for. Cars were not really that prevelant until really the mid 1940’s.

    Political documents just do not cut it. Science is about facts.

    And, Ogre, you are right. The big wigs who are pushing global warming as caused by man want money. Also, they want to damage big corporations in their socialist zeal.

  6. Silke says:

    Teach, what study are you referring to regarding the “research about the Sun and natural earth forces”?

    As for the “big money” argument that can equally be applied to some of the skeptics.

  7. Silke, look out the window. That big shiny thing is responsible for more energy then any of Man’s creations. It goes through phases. If you do not understand the science of the Sun, then there is little point in discussing anything. Same with the Earth. Things change.

    I’m sorry, but I do not have any political studies to show you, nor computer models. Basic elementary school science will lay out the relevant facts about the Sun and Earth. Did you know that Mt Everest was created by natural earth processes, and is still growing?

    Well, they apply here, too. We had a cooler period for several centuries prior, and a warmer period before that. Climate changes. Something as simple as a large volcano can create a year without a summer. One volcano.

    Barely anyone had cars back in the early 1900’s. So why did the temps start going up? No planes, either. How was man releasing all that CO2 then? Oh, that’s right, the IPCC report all of a sudden changes the time frame.

    Why was there a dip in temps that caused Newsweek and Time to report on the coming ice age? That’s right, natural earth forces. Things change.

    Now, if you believe in global warming as caused by Man so much, what are you doing? Have you switched to a hybrid, or given up your car altogether? Stopped flying? Made sure none of your power was coming from coal? Can’t take the bus, lots of CO2 output.

  9. It’s something about embeded HTML. Tried it myself, couldn’t get it to work.

    Good articles!
