Stupid Democrat last night on O’Reilly stated that she preferes the moniker climate change… well… of course she does! If we stick with global warming this entire scenario is pathetically hilarious, but if we manage to change to climate change well, they can say that this anomaly IS part of the problems of the world concerning the Planet and they can’t ever loose a climate argument. It is really pathetic.

of course they do…”climate change” covers all kinds of weather.

Climate change is a great descriptor when one strives for pure meaningless ambiguity. We all know the climate changes. Always has and always will. Calling it an “issue” is akin to labeling sunrise a dangerous celestial event.

In the 22nd century it will all fall under the rubric of terraforming, available as planetary scale product both here on Terra, and on other worlds.

You think that soon? I’m not sure we get out of this century as technologically advanced as we are now.

Agreed its a minefield ahead.. at best we might just be planting roots on Mars. Practical interstellar travel might still be centuries off. The next great paradigm shifts in basic physics may be uncovered by AIs working with human scientists. That class of AIs will also be assisting in the design of superior AI. I’m not sure we can get through that as an intact civilization

By then “climate change” of the kind being modeled should fall farther to the bottom of global concerns

That’s assuming we don’t plunge into a global Mohamedan dark age in the next several years. Odd that the Fascist/Communist existential threat encouraged scientific and technological progress but the Muslims, who present an equally dire existential threat, want to move us back several hundred years in most ways.

I still don’t believe they have the capacity. Islamists can harm us grievously (rogue nukes), but they risk annihilation doing so. Even if the Caliphate brought its former domains under a single banner (hell, throw in Al-Andulus for sport), it would be vulnerable to all the mechanisms of modern warfare, in ways their horse-spanned realms were not centuries ago.

Though such turmoil, given sufficient energy, might destabilize the world order and usher in some kind of fascist global dominion, I suppose. We have always been at war with Ummah

Here is one vision of the future. I read this a year or two ago.

They won’t have to do much. The left is handing the keys to them in Europe and now here. Christians and other religions are being cleansed in Africa and elsewhere. Once the camel’s nose gets in the tent…

How sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip.
It started from a frozen port, aboard a Russian ship, aboard a Russian ship.
The ice got really, really thick, the stupid ship was blocked, if not for the courage of the rescue ships, the stupid crew would be lost, the stupid crew would be lost.

The ship is still stuck in real thick ice, the crew of climate mongers are stuck, and no one gives a F*ck, no one gives a F*ck.

Hope they freeze to death standing on the deck looking stupid….what a great picture that would be..

Nothing more satisfying than watching fundamentalist warming alarmists, all steeped in PC driven social and political heresies, hit the very reality fan they claim does not exist.
Oh, the delicious irony of it all!

I don’t wish them dead and I am sure (I hope) that they are prepared for these contigencies. However, to me this is yet another bit of proof that the Lord G-d has a great sense of humor.

You have to wonder if global warming lies are finally going to kill somebody. If so, I’m glad it will be a bunch of damn fool alarmists.

Nobody is in any danger. Any reports you’re seeing to the contrary are liberal lies. Or from the mainstream media. There I go being redundant, again.

“Stuck in the ice for 13 days”, look at all the time they’ve had to fudge the temperature data. Sadly none of them are going to end up like Shackleton, millions will be spent to rescue their sorry lying asses.

It would be interesting to watch the spin if this ship gets crushed like beer can. Dumping gallons of diesel and oil all over that pristine environment. I wonder if they would even make the effort to clean up their mess?

Just grab a few thousand penguins. I hear they’re quite absorbent.

Yes, but won’t all that petroleum contamination ruin their delicate flavor?

Inuit! You just had to bring up hot wings didn’t you?

I’d love to haul a grill out there on the ice and start chasing penguins around. The liberal “scientists” would have a fit!

MGAP

that’s funny right there!

There is a very simple solution, super glue “inconvenient idiot” gore to the front of the vessel, if that perpetual bag of hot air does not melt the ice, than its not possible to break through and we’ll have to call it “weather”, than perhaps the emperor could mount a huge publicity show of sending snowmobiles, dog sleds, maybe even a couple of special ops units in (that he has thoroughly trained and briefed) the two miles to rescue those “tourist” its all on tax payer money anyway.

They got what they deserved. Lying to the world about Algore’s moneymaking scheme, just so they can get funding to spread more lies, they should all freeze!

Actually, it seems that they’re all having a wonderful paid vacation, playing with the penguins and partying on the ice floe. Justice has yet to be served.

Sure seems hard to find evidence of global warming, which is supposed to be happening everywhere all the time. No surprise though the media reality deniers are avoiding coverage. Yet another instance where green geniuses try to pound the round peg of AGW doctrine into the square hole of reality and are again suprised it doesn’t work.

I’m sorry. I still refuse to wear the sweater vest my gramma gave me for Christmas.

No, it wasn’t THAT bad.

I wouldn’t let my dog sleep on that thing.

Oh, the poor wee lambs. Canting, pseudo-scientific hypocrites, surrounded by irony, seek aid.
It’s quite simple—but too simple for their irrational brains, seemingly—all the “researchers” and eco-tourists need do is wander a few kilometres to where the ice-breakers have stopped.

MGAP

The kicker for me was that there are no tourists aboard this ship as previously reported. All scientists from a taxpayer funded Australian expedition.
To CNN’s credit, it is a front page trending story. Though they still seem to insist that there are tourists aboard; “74 researchers, crew and tourists remained in good condition despite being at a frozen standstill since last Monday.”

Deadman

No; “tourists” correctly describes most of the alleged researchers; they’re there for the selfies and taxpayer-funded experience, for glory and bragging rights, but they’ll be contributing nothing to science.
Remember too that if those awarmist fools had any consistency, they’d have sailed thither without the aid of fossil fuels.
I should add that I dwell in Hobart whence many of these boats set off for Antarctic waters and wherein you’ll find well-funded awarmist organisations such as the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies and the Australian Antarctic Division. I meet people who’ve come from a safe, luxurious summer cruise to the ice, swanning around as if they’re latter-day Mawsons and Scotts.

That helped, knew I recognized the style. You’re the irregular regular that bops in with the views from Down Under from time to time. I was confused because you changed your avi. (why do I keep seeing a Sherlockian magnifying glass in my head?)

And is Oz going to fall to pieces since the Greens were tossed out with the rubbish in the last elections or is this just a temporary setback whilst (couldn’t help it) they recycle their forces for the next go-round?

MGAP

I must admit, one of those Antarctic cruises is on my short list of dream cruises! I hold no delusions of grandeur or exploratory prowess in taking one. The hardest thing about it will be the cost!! Looks like I’ll have to settle for a 12 day Med cruise instead.

Nearly spit out my beverage here;http://www.theguardian.com/world/antarctica-live/2013/dec/29/trapped-antarctic-passengers-air-evacuation . Look at the engine nacelle on that Chinese chopper in the third picture down from the top!

Alright, I know what it looks like, I even tried looking up Chinese military emblems, but couldn’t find this one.
I give up, It must be what it looks like.
