Arctic doomed again and again
From the Andrew Bolt blog, December 14, 2008
Take down their names and addresses. In six years we will need them:
Scientists warn climate change is causing ice in the Canadian Arctic to melt so quickly, the region will have an ice-free season in six years… Dr. David Barber, one of the scientists on the expedition, says “the Arctic is telling us that climate change is coming quicker and stronger.”
Hmm. Barber? Wasn’t he warning us early this year that the Arctic could be ice free this northern summer? Why, yes:
We’re actually projecting this year that the North Pole may be free of ice for the first time [in history],” David Barber, of the University of Manitoba, told National Geographic News aboard the C.C.G.S. Amundsen, a Canadian research icebreaker.”
No matter how extreme your green policy, Bob Brown will simply trump it – and without going to the bother of credibly explaining how he’d do what he promised and how much it would cost:
Instead of a 5 to 15percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, Australia must aim now at reducing output by 100percent (building a zero-emissions economy) by 2050, with reductions of at least 40percent below 1990 levels by 2020.
People actually vote for this bloke. That’s the scariest bit.
Meanwhile, Britain shivvers:
It is the coldest start to December since 1976, when the average was 33.4F (0.8C).
