The Icy Irony

I don’t often write about global warming. Since I’m not a climate scientist, I tend not to venture too far into the topic. Yet I do have my views, particularly when someone like Al Gore tries to say the earth is melting. Well, he didn’t say exactly that, but one gets the impression he might believe it. I do believe man can affect the environment, but most of the talk about global warming is so over the edge that it gets pretty silly. Have you noticed that many have now switched terminology from warming to simply “climate change?” It’s more vague and allows you to cover a lot more territory. And when something is that vague, you can hide behind it more easily when the “science” seems to go awry.

Why do I bring this up now? I’m fascinated by the ship that went to the Antarctic to document the melting ice, only to get trapped in the ice. The irony is just too ripe to pass up.

SOS

Faith in a proposition is one thing; ignoring facts is something else. From what I’ve heard, we might have more ice now than before. Oh, and there apparently is no evidence of any global warming for at least the past 17 years.

Reality

Yet those of us who question this faith are called “climate deniers,” as if we are the ones who are out of touch.

Global Warming

While I can’t personally document this, I’ve read that a high percentage of news reports about the stuck ship never mentioned the crew’s mission. When the media is on your side, you can hide the truth from the general public for quite a while.
