Mikeyy your wasting your time just a few here agree which includes me. We all can freeze together and most will say what happened?

And I like most people here no matter what they believe.. I just got a better chance of dying before many of them get to suffer.

We have been pumping crap into our planet while defrosting for a couple of hundred years. It doesn't take a scientist to understand that we have affected the planet in negative ways. I watch as the right fights against ever doing anything. From catalytic converters to carbon tax. They fight against investment in alternative energy sources. They fight against everything that would make our lives better. I see they were happy that Trump lifted the ban on polluting the streams around coal plants. I don't care if the right wants to live in shlt but they can't without taking me and my offspring along. So I will fight them all the way. I was just at a high school yesterday at lunch time and was watching a bunch of over weight kids eating nacho cheese with a spoon from the school cafeteria. Whenever a lefty supports better food in schools idiot right wingers attack them. Look around. It's time to accept responsibility for what the fuk we are doung to our kids, to the planet and start working to do the right thing.

My point actually is the same... But do we need proof when s--t is happening that needs our attention now!

When he gives up these contrary luxuries, and starts signing over his fortune to fund R&D THEN maybe I'll start believing how imminent Climate Change is....

Global Warming Study Cancelled Because of 'Unprecedented' Ice

DELINGPOLE: Global Warming Study Cancelled Because of 'Unprecedented' Ice

Quote:
Naturally, the scientist in charge has blamed it on ‘climate change.’

According to Vice:

The study, entitled BaySys, is a $17-million four-year-long program headed by the University of Manitoba. It was planning to conduct the third leg of its research by sending 40 scientists from five Canadian universities out into the Bay on the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen to study “contributions of climate change and regulation on the Hudson Bay system.”

But it had to be cancelled because the scientists’ icebreaker was required by the Canadian Coast Guard for a rather more urgent purpose – rescuing fishing boats and supply ships which had got stuck in the “unprecedented ice conditions”.

“It became clear to me very quickly that these weren’t just heavy ice conditions, these were unprecedented ice conditions,” Dr. David Barber, the lead scientist on the study, told VICE. “We were finding thick multi-year sea ice floes which on level ice were five metres thick… it was much, much thicker and much, much heavier than anything you would expect at that latitude and at that time of year.”

Clearly not one to let a crisis go to waste, Barber seized the opportunity to perform the usual alarmist clown dance for the media, explaining why this incident definitely shows that global warming is a major problem and deserving of our urgent attention.

He told Vice:

“It was clear it was from the Arctic, I just needed to be among the ice to see it,” said Dr. Barber. “What was also clear to me was that climate change has caused this event to happen.”

[Don’t you just love that “I just needed to be among the ice”? I think what he’s trying in his subtle way to tell us is: “Not all superheroes wear capes”]

Warming to his theme, he told Global News:

“This is climate change fully in action – affecting our ability to make use of marine resources and transport things.”

and

“This is a wake-up call for all of us in the country.”

Of course it is. Now Barber has the perfect excuse to share his war stories with all the other global warming experts who have had their research expeditions/publicity stunts stymied by unseasonal bouts of global warming.

There was the Ship of Fools expedition in which an Australian climate researcher called Chris Turkey had to call an expedition to the melting Antarctic after his ship got stuck in the ice.

The Caitlin Expedition – supported by the Prince of Wales – in which Pen Haddow and his team had to abandon their trip to the North Pole because it was colder than they’d expected.

Most recently there was Ship of Fools II, in which a global warming research voyage by David Hempleman Adams had to be curtailed because of unexpected ice.

What on earth can Mother Gaia be trying to tell them?

Possibly the same message she’s trying to send out to the Greenies in California with this unexpected fall of white global warming.

A rare winter-like storm brought more snow to the Sierra Nevada on Monday, giving skiers the opportunity to enjoy the slopes as summer gets underway.

At Squaw Valley, the storm dropped four inches of snow at the upper elevations and two inches at the base, delighting skiers and snowboarders who will be on the slopes past the Fourth of July for a first time in history.

“It’s definitely unique,” Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows resort spokesman Sam Kieckhefer said. “We are seeing bathing suits and costumes on the slopes. The skiing has definitely been extremely festive.”

Apparently, she didn’t get the famous memo from the Independent a few years back.



Why, if you didn’t know better you’d almost think unseasonal bouts of snow and ice were nothing to do with “global warming” but were a natural phenomenon which had been with us since time immemorial….

Do you deny this stupid argument? Or do you just hate it because it conflicts with your beliefs?

At least they didn't get their boat stuck in an ice pack and had to be rescued.

That was last years research trip.

Sorry, that was 2014

http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-25833307

Last years research vessel was frozen in a Soviet port and did not make the planned trip.

Exactly what is 'stupid' about pointing out hypocrisy?

Or is it just that it doesn't coincide with what he is trying to promote and it undermines the validity of the subject?
