Why does that not surprise me?
The real irony is that it's global warming that produced the huge amount of pack ice that trapped the boat.

Warming means Antarctic glaciers are dumping more ice into the sea.

polar vortex , record snow fall at both polls , record ice pack formation , earthquakes , flood , tidal waves , tornados , drought , volcanos , forest fires , crop circles , aliens , crime , or you name it is all caused by climate change !!! so the experts here would have us believe ! so is there anything on this planet , galaxy , or anything ANYWHERE thats not caused by climate change ? I mean the experts here have blamed climate change for everything and ANYTHING i have posted here and more ! so if the fish in the river farts is it caused by climate change ? Is there no end to the horror of climate change or the CLOSED MINDED ,SCARE TACTICS ,DON'T KNOW ANYTHING , NO COMMON SENSE EXPERTS ON THESE PAGES !!!

Trapped in the ice=no GW.

Now that they are free, GW is back on, right?

As horrendous as the first two are, the starvings may be the worst. In an effort to get money, chinese communists(always small letters) sold food crops to other countries, deliberately using crops from areas that communist chinese(always small letters) wanted to subdue, leaving those regions WITHOUT food. Wide spread score(s?) of millions of starvations occurred in those areas, & sure 'nuf, them areas are communist chinese(always small letters), now.

Anyhow(as if the worst massacre on the face of the Earth is a prequel), communist chinese (always small letters) can get things done by following trails of past communist chinese (always small letters) dictators. Looking at pollution problems of the 'civilization' of the west, communist chinese (always small letters) allowed such pollution problems, already polluting millions to death, TO GAIN MONEY.

Yeah, communist chinese(always small letters) continue in the worst avenues of communist chinese(always small letters).

Do you every read some of the more factual posts on here, or you here just trolling & parroting what you have heard elsewhere. Because 99% of the denier so called science has been proven to be factually wrong. Opinions don't count.

The Earth is Warming
Humans are Increasing Atmospheric Greenhouse Gases
Human Greenhouse Gases are Causing Global Warming
The Warming will Continue
The Net Result will be Bad
Arguments to the contrary are superficial
There are legitimate unresolved questions
Smart Risk Management Means Taking Action
We Can Solve the Problem

Thanx to SkS

So you don't believe it is happening? Or do you not believe that Man is causing it?

Are you ignorant or stupid? Cause ignorant can be fixed.

There's no experimental evidence man can change global climate. There's never been an experimental test of climate change mitigation either. The scientific method means a robust technology testing scientific theory; AGW theory only has virtual tests, no real world tests. That's why man made catastrophic climate change theory is pseudoscience and climate change mitigation is a hoax.

Yep, there are those who really believe that man and dinosaurs walked the Earth together. Since they either don't have the tools, or simply reject those tools, there is no scientific argument that they will accept. It seems some of the same mentality is present in their concepts of global warming.

God gave us the Earth for our own pleasure, to destroy as we see fit. After all, there is nothing can do to harm the Earth. It is our duty to be fruitful and multiply. Nothing else matters.:)

I happen to think that we should respect the creation and protect it as a wonderful gift.
