Global Warming Expedition Stranded by Cold Weather At North Pole

Wednesday, March 18, 2009 

 

Three global warming researchers stranded in the North Pole by cold weather were holding out hope Wednesday as a fourth plane set off in an attempt deliver them supplies.

The flight took off during a break in bad weather after “brutal” conditions halted three previous attempts to reach the British explorers who said they were nearly out of food, the Agence France-Presse reported.

“We’re hungry, the cold is relentless, our sleeping bags are full of ice,” expedition leader Pen Hadow said in e-mailed statement. “Waiting is almost the worst part of an expedition as we’re in the lap of the weather gods.”

Hadow, Martin Hartley and Ann Daniels began an 85-day hike to the North Pole on February 28 to measure sea ice thickness, the AFP reported.

With bad weather hampering supply flights, the team is was down to half-rations, battling desperate sub-zero temperatures and unable to proceed, the AFP reported.

“It’ll be a relief to get our new supplies,” Hadow said in a statement Wednesday. “Until (the plane) does arrive, we need to conserve energy and can’t really move on.”

The expedition now expects to arrive at the North Pole in late May.

    McAuley’s World:

    My first point Al is that your interest in Global Warming is the same as your interest in the Internet – to make a fast buck. I can’t help but laugh everytime I see that video of you claiming credit for “inventing the internet”. Seems I missed that Chapter in the book “Love Story”. You claim that book was written about you too, correct? What a laugh. You’ll say anything won’t you. Claim anything to make a buck.

    Your a real card Al. Afraid to debate scientists in public about the issue. Typical. If you don’t have the facts – you better hide behind the media.

    Al check these out – but you already know my point – because I’m just repeating a point made by 100,000’s of Scientists around rthe globe. Al, your nothing more than a 21st century version of a snake oil salesman:

    Al, you told us the Artic ice mass was disappearing. Then the fact that your paid scientists missed an area of ice larger than the State of California (They describe the ice mass as being the size of Spain). Missed an ice mass larger than the State of California in a area the approximate size of the United States west of the Rocky Mountains. This is the group you expect me to “believe in”. “The National Snow and Ice Data Center has acknowledged that due to a satellite sensor malfunction, it had been underestimating the extent of Arctic sea ice by 193,000 square miles – an area the size of Spain. In a new study, University of Wisconsin researchers Kyle Swanson and Anastasios Tsonis conclude that global warming could be going into a decades-long remission.” http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2009/03/08/wheres_global_warming/
    In addition National Snow and Ice Data Center – a liberally funded “front” – has been silent since their prediction that, “Could the North Pole be ice free this melt season?” wqas proven false. In fact the artic ice cover increased almost 30% during thie period of “observation”. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2008/10/15/arctic-sea-ice-now-287-higher-than-this-date-last-year-still-climbing/ . I should really replace the term observation with “statistical manipulation”.

    Even the “ultra green” Discovery Channel states that Global Warming is, at a minimum, on hold. That there has been no increase in Global Temperatures over the last decade. IMAGINE THAT. https://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2009/03/04/global-warming-on-hold-global-temperatures-have-flatlined-since-2001-reports-discovery-channel/

    For the readers who would like real science versus global warming vodoo – try this site: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/03/20/dr-syun-akasofu-on-ipccs-forecast-accuracy/

    Hundreds of thousands of scientists and readers alike post and debate the Global Warming topic in a truely scientific manner, every week, on this site.

    Say AL – Why don’t you take Princeton University Professor Will Happer up on his challenge to debate …. What is wrong with open, honest, intellectual debate? You know who Happer is, you had him fired because his studies embarrassed the hell out of you and exposed your fraud for what it is.
    See: https://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2008/12/29/princeton-scientist-fired-for-questioning-global-warming-what-happened-to-open-intellectual-debate/

    If you won’t debate Dr. Harper, then why not debate John Coleman – founder of the Weather Channel? Afraid of him too? Al, to my knowledge, you’ve never debatedd a single soul on this topic – why is that. In fact Al, you’ve never even agreed to appear at an event where the opposing point of view was given the opportunity to speak. Hmmm, we all know why someone would act in that fashion.

    We all know why politicians won’t debate. They want to avoid being embarassed. Al, after your “I invented the Internet” comment and that “Love Story” lie, you should be used to embarassing yourself.

    AL – Why post here – why not answer the 31,000 International Scientitists, 9,000 of whom are PhDs, who state your Global Warming theories are a bald faced “fraud”. https://mcauleysworld.wordpress.com/2009/02/19/john-coleman-has-dedicated-his-life-to-studying-weather-and-the-science-that-creates-it%e2%80%94so-shouldn%e2%80%99t-we-at-least-hear-him-out/

    Go ahead AL, steal from the poor with your “Cap & Trade Taxes”, funnel those tax dollars to your Billionaire buddies making money on this scam. I know you gotta find a new scam – that Internet Bubble Burst long ago, then the Housing Bubble with all those Sub-Prime Mortgages you pushed with your buddies at Fannie 5 Freddie. Cooked the books on those numbers too – didn’t ya. Better hurry Al – running out of time and support to build not a “greener” America but a “Green Bubble” to rip America off. You should be in jail!
