Ann Bancroft expedition to highlight global warming called off due to.........frostbite. Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor.The story of the global warming alarmists who had to call off their expedition due to extreme cold can be found here.
....Then there was the cold -- quite a bit colder, Atwood said, then Bancroft and Arnesen had expected. One night they measured the temperature inside their tent at 58 degrees below zero, and outside temperatures were exceeding 100 below zero at times, Atwood said......
Global warming expedition called off due to frostbite......priceless.
By the way according to Bancroft's own site:
....The global mean temperature has increased by 0.74 degrees Celsius since 1906......
0.74 degrees every 100 years.....oh my.......the sky is truly falling. I hope there is some non-profit agency I can donate my money to, to help ensure that future global warming expeditionists don't have to humiliate themselves with the same moronic stunt.
Look, I won't argue that the earth's climate isn't changing albeit at a glacially slow pace. But what I will argue against is the activists' claims that mankind and all his "evil technological advances" are the cause of said temperature fluctuations.
Hello.....Earth to grant pandering activists, have you ever heard of the sun? It's that big orange ball in the sky with a core temperature of 15,000,000° C; 27,000,000° F. Perhaps that has something to do with the temperature change you've noticed.........then again that fact doesn't raise money and / or federal research grants for your "global warming" agenda......so don't let that fact get in your way.
Not so long ago people could see through these cheap snake oil charlatans........but in a whole new world where "secondhand smoke kills"........I guess any scam is easily believed.
As long as the special interest money keeps flowing, that is.
