We’re Saved: Non-Sciency Students Take Long Fossil Fueled Trip To Study ‘Climate Change’

This is a perfect example of why I and so many skeptics maintain that what the Cult of Climastrology is pushing is a bunch of hoo hah: they’re a bunch of hypocrites

UIC Students Set Sail in the Arctic to Study Climate Change

Six students from the University of Illinois at Chicago are starting the fall semester a little early – and a couple thousand miles from campus. They’ve traded their classroom chairs for seats on board a research vessel as part of the Northwest Passage Project.

Working closely with scholars, scientists, historians, journalists and students from a handful of other universities, the UIC group will spend three weeks assisting in the collection of scientific and sociological information as they sail across the Northwest Passage, a northern waterway between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

The students – five undergraduates and one graduate student who are all enrolled in the school’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – have a range of majors, from biology and psychology to rehabilitation sciences and communication. In other words, being a future scientist was not a requirement for participation.

In other words, this is about politics, not science. These students are first taking fossil fueled vehicles to the airport, then a fossil fueled flight, then some sort of fossil fueled vehicles from the airport to the ship, then traveling on a fossil fueled trip.

“The aim of the participation of the undergrad student is not for them to become scientists. It’s for them to become informed citizens,” said Miquel Gonzalez-Meler, a professor of biological sciences at UIC who is involved with the project. “When they’re hopefully the new generation of doctors and psychologists and health professionals and social professionals and so forth, they will have the experience with them that probably can empower them to talk about these issues.”

This isn’t science. They could be “informed” without all the climahypocrisy.

The expedition will make several stops along the way so students can visit native Inuit villages and also study the lives of area residents.

Don’t even get me started on them treating these Inuit like simple study subjects. Rather bigoted of them.

    Your tax dollars at work. As long as there are government programs and funding for a thing, all detractors of such thing will be shouted down as heretics. Now we have funding for “informal” science performed by “minority serving institutions”. Funding for junk science for minorities looks racist. Luckily they’ll have psychologists and sociologists on the trip to help them believe that second rate informal science has just as much value as formal science so they can hang on to their inflated self-esteem. Shoot me, I’m a heretic!https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_bye.gif

    The Northwest Passage Project is a collaborative effort between the University of Rhode Island (URI), Inner Space Center (ISC), and the Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO), the film company, David Clark, Inc., and several other collaborators, including five U.S. universities that are classified as Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs).

    The Northwest Passage Project is funded by the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) program, which seeks to advance new approaches to, and evidence-based understanding of, the design and development of STEM learning in informal environments.

    Heaven forbid non-scientists learn a little about science.

    While the so-called “skeptics” were opposing climate science at every turn, and for purely political reasons, the scientists were methodically collecting data. First, the “skeptics” were forced to admit that the Earth was warming. Now, many of them now admit that CO2 is at least partly responsible. From the beginning the opposition of “skeptics” was political, not scientific. “Skeptics” are mostly American conservatives who oppose international agreements and government interventions, big or small. That’s their motivation. Their science arguments are just a tool to support their ideology.

    It’s telling that Teach’s last remaining argument is that he bases his scientific understandings on the travel habits of others.

      You can’t have plants without CO2. And most of the “scientists” are the ones pushing the political agenda.

      As always, Jeffery is the kid who knows everything, knows nothing.

      It’s all, “La La La, I can’t hear you”.

      • Jeffery says:

        You can’t have plants without CO2.

        In general, that’s true. No one is suggesting that CO2 be dropped to 0 ppm, which would be even more damaging than stabilizing CO2 at 300 ppm. Why? Because we’d all freeze! After all, CO2 is an important greenhouse gas that causes the atmosphere to warm.

        scientists are the ones pushing the political agenda

        Based on evidence. “Skeptics” base their opposition on ideology.

    They’re going up there to see the Arctic Ice that was supposed to be gone by now.

  4. JGlanton says:

    Well, they’re advanced icebreaker ship ran aground on the 2nd day of the cruise and the passengers have been transferred to another ship.

    The multiracial university diversity students of informal soft sciences are safe. It is not clear if the taxpayers will be reimbursed for their $10K/each cruise costs.
