Andrew Bolt’s most informative post has now shown up on Instapundit. Something’s cracking, and it’s not the ice around the warmists’ ship is about the single greatest practical demonstration in the entire global warming fraud that the people, these scientists, at the centre of this scam have almost no idea of anything to do with the real world or things like the actual weather. Although now rescued at great expense, both in terms of money and genuine scientific endeavours, the sentiments found in the opening of Andrew’s post should now adhere to the entire global warming enterprise from now until forever:
The expedition of warmists now on a Russian ship trapped in ice is called “Spirit of Mawson” in honor of explorer Douglas Mawson who, a century ago, spent two years on Antarctica during which he lost two colleagues on a trek. Mawson himself survived only by eating his huskies and trudging back on feet that had lost the skin of the soles.
Guardian journalist Laurence Topham on the ‘Spirit of Mawson’ now demonstrates how that spirit lives on in this ship of warmists, awaiting rescue by helicopter after a week trapped in ice they’d assumed was melting away:
It is quite stressful… I miss banana and peanut butter milkshakes… I’ve got this really thin, small bed… I’ve hurt my back… I jammed my leg in the door last night… And it’s only going to get worse… Stranded in ice. Oh, God I’m going mad.
I doubt there will be a commemorative expedition in a hundred years to remember this particular trip although there should be as a reminder of our own modern version of the Mississippi Bubble, tulip mania and the madness of crowds.
