Oil to the rescue of the ice-bound warmist
Herald Sun, August 20, 2009
Eric Forsyth, captain of the eco-yacht Fiona, is alarmed:
Within the next generation two problems of global proportions threaten the way of life as we now know it in the United States. They are:
1. Global Climate Change
2. Global Depletion of Fossil Fuel
To alert the rest of us to this peril, he decides to sail through the fable North West Passage, highlighting the terrible ice melt in the Arctic.
AUGUST 17, 2009
Last night, 16 Aug, we got hopelessly trapped by the ice. Despite a favorable ice report we encountered 8/10ths ice, with many old, i.e. large, bergs. We spent the night tied to one of them but had to leave this morning when another ‘berg collided with us and tipped Fiona over. We got away but the space around us is shrinking. I called the Canadian Coast Guard at noon and they are sending an icebreaker, due here tomorrow. We are NOT in immediate danger. Watch this space for developments.
There’s a shock. Too much ice for this warming catastrophist, who now needs rescuing by a ship powered by that evil fossil fuel Forsyth rejects, in theory at least.
