CFACT advisor Dr. Larry Bell is amused with the latest spin from the Obama Administration and its henchmen from the politico-scientific community -- this time regarding the latest report on the relatively tiny West Antarctic ice sheet. Bell points to several key facts ignored by reporters and political hacks alike -- notably, the recently discovered 1-mile-deep rift valley and volcanic activity under the West Antarctic ice sheet and the fact that the other 90% of the Antarctic ice sheet is experiencing record high ice levels. Just further evidence that you cannot believe the White House or the mainstream media.
Can the media ignore both the global warming nature of the expedition that got itself trapped in Antarctic ice, and 2013's massive growth of Antarctic ice itself? UPDATE: The Yanks are comin'. U.S. ice breaker steaming to the rescue.
Fifty-two members of the global warming expedition which has been ice-bound off Antarctica since Christmas Eve have been airlifted to safety by a Chinese helicopter. The holiday spectacle of feckless warmists on ice should prove a lasting image.
Climate Depot describes it as a "clitanic disaster," but the global warming scientists and eco-tourists trapped in Antarctic ice held a sing-along to welcome the new year while awaiting rescue. 2013 was a year which rocked the credibility of the global warming campaign. It will take a long time for the closing image of warmists on ice to fade.
An Australian ice breaker has failed to reach the global warming researchers trapped in ice near Antarctica. Further rescue attempts planned.
Will the dramatic spectacle of climate researchers trapped in Antarctic ice (which has expanded massively during 2013) help free the media of the false global warming ice narrative?
