Another global warming tragedy

If by tragedy, you mean yet another example of how global warming is all a giant scam, and people who keep doing stuff like this, and end up making idiots out of themselves, only to prove their own theory wrong.

These are not the first people to try and prove that global warming is true by hiking through the Arctic, where the polar ice is supposedly melting.

The result, however, is the same (emphasis mine):

A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite. The explorers, Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen, on Saturday called off what was intended to be a 530-mile trek across the Arctic Ocean after Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold temperatures drained the batteries in some of their electronic equipment.

"Ann said losing toes and going forward at all costs was never part of the journey," said Ann Atwood, who helped organize the expedition.

But the latest trek got off to a bad start. The day they set off from Ward Hunt Island, a plane landing near the women hit their gear, punching a hole in Bancroft's sled and damaging one of Arnesen's snowshoes.

They repaired the snowshoe with binding from a ski, but Atwood said the patch job created pressure on Arnesen's left foot, which led to blisters that then turned into frostbite.

Then there was the cold _ quite a bit colder, Atwood said, then Bancroft and Arnesen had expected. One night they measured the temperature inside their tent at 58 degrees below zero, and outside temperatures were exceeding 100 below zero at times, Atwood said.

"My first reaction when they called to say there were calling it off was that they just sounded really, really cold," Atwood said.

She said Bancroft and Arnesen were applying hot water bottles to Arnesen's foot every night, but had to wake up periodically because the bottles froze.

The explorers had planned to call in regular updates to school groups by satellite phone, and had planned online posts with photographic evidence of global warming. In contrast to Bancroft's 1986 trek across the Arctic with fellow Minnesota explorer Will Steger, this time she and Arnesen were prepared to don body suits and swim through areas where polar ice has melted.

Atwood said there was some irony that a trip to call attention to global warming was scuttled in part by extreme cold temperatures.

"They were experiencing temperatures that weren't expected with global warming," Atwood said. "But one of the things we see with global warming is unpredictability."


See, one of the things that comes with global warming is unpredictability -- now I get it! Extreme cold = global warming. Lots of hurricanes = global warming. No hurricanes = global warming. Blizzards = global warming. Any kind of weather, anywhere, is caused by global warming!

What I can't help but wonder about is how these out-to-prove-global-warming-true-explorers (and these two are definitely not the first ones, and probably won't be the last) ever thought anything different would happen. I mean, when they sat around thinking about swimming through the arctic circle, did they really believe their own propaganda, and think they wouldn't freeze? And even if they did believe their own propaganda, why did they not realize the game was up when their gear froze?

Maybe then they just sat around and started praying to the Goracle. Instead of facing Mecca, they face Malibu. Global warming and environmentalism is the religion of choice for moonbats, after all.

A good quote from American Thinker:


I hope the two recover fully and come to realize that it can still be really, really cold in the arctic, no matter what Al Gore tells them.

...

I hope they are now letting those school groups know that it is foolish to plan to swim in the Arctic beacuse it gets really, really cold there.

Hat Tip: Moonbattery.

Nonfalsifiable theories that have nevertheless been widely embraced have a long pedigree. Freudian psychoanalysis is one, for example. Never imagine that people will shy away from a notion they find attractive, just because it's logically unsound. And we know how attractive environmental activists, and Leftists generally, find the notion of power over others.

The warmistas cannot be challenged on the basis of their theory, for they maintain that it's their right to modify the theory so that there can be no counter-evidence to it. But they can be beaten by allowing the public to learn: 1) the full implications for human well-being of their program for remaking the world economy, and 2) just how ridiculous they are when compelled to confront a contradiction to their views.

"Among the world's chief contributors to the global carbon emissions problem, Arteche-Carr cited using data sanctioned by the UN, the number three pollutant worldwide comes from transportation: cars, trains, ships.

Semanticleo:

"will you now place more emphasis on ridding the planet of all livestock in an effort to slow the Earth hotting up?"

Since you ask; :"If all the grain currently fed to livestock in the United States were consumed directly by people, the number of people who could be fed would be nearly 800 million," David Pimentel, professor of ecology in Cornell University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, reported at the July 24-26 meeting of the Canadian Society of Animal Science in Montreal. Or, if those grains were exported, it would boost the U.S. trade balance by $80 billion a year, Pimentel estimated.

Tracking food animal production from the feed trough to the dinner table, Pimentel found broiler chickens to be the most efficient use of fossil energy, and beef, the least. Chicken meat production consumes energy in a 4:1 ratio to protein output; beef cattle production requires an energy input to protein output ratio of 54:1. (Lamb meat production is nearly as inefficient at 50:1, according to the ecologist's analysis of U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics. Other ratios range from 13:1 for turkey meat and 14:1 for milk protein to 17:1 for pork and 26:1 for eggs.)

Animal agriculture is a leading consumer of water resources in the United States, Pimentel noted. Grain-fed beef production takes 100,000 liters of water for every kilogram of food. Raising broiler chickens takes 3,500 liters of water to make a kilogram of meat. In comparison, soybean production uses 2,000 liters for kilogram of food produced; rice, 1,912; wheat, 900; and potatoes, 500 liters. "Water shortages already are severe in the Western and Southern United States and the situation is quickly becoming worse because of a rapidly growing U.S. population that requires more water for all of its needs, especially agriculture," Pimentel observed."

http://www.news.cornell.edu/releases/Aug97/livestock.hrs.html

And, no I am not an advocate of outlawing human behaviors which are self-destructive. Diet is a personal choice, but the increasing scarcity of water will lead to food shortages of every type. Global warming will exacerbate those issues culminating in a 'Perfect Storm' of worldwide famine and disease. But y'all can just keep shopping. Pay no attention to the facts.

Dave W:

Note that in some stories they are trying to change Global Warming to "Climate Change". If they successfully pull that one off, they can blame anything that humans do for the constant changing of the earth's climate.

The earth's climate has always changed and always will change. There is no way to prove whether or not humans have any degree of impact on the climate. Look at it this way. If the average temperature raised about 1 degree celcius over the last 100 years then any effect we have had on temperatures is negligable at best.

We certainly have not caused 100% of that 1 degree. Arguing over what fraction we have caused if any is stupid. The point is that making economical changes and forcing people to live to anything but their fullest potential because we may have caused part of a degree temperature change over the last 100 years is shear idiocy.

Proponents of this point out that they would rather be safe then sorry. I would rather be safe than sorry on an economical stand point, especially when there is nothing to be sorry about from an environmental standpoint.

Do you think edison or ford would have not invented their inventions had they known they might have helped contribute to part of a degree celcius temperature rise over 100 years? I highly doubt they would care, and rightly so.

There is all kinds of antecdotal evidence of "glaciers melting" and "polar bears drowning" and everything that is supposedly an effect of global warming. How were the great lakes formed? Glaciers froze over the area and then melted off. It happened without a single SUV and i can contend that it would have happened anyways had there been SUV's.

There is no climate crisis. If there IS one, we didn't cause it, and we aren't contributing to it in any significant way.

First of all I could care less about all your presented quotes, but will note the U.N. data used to determine livestock as the primary cause of global warming includes all the infrastructure that is part of the livestock industry.

SPQR:

Trolls like Semanticleo are most annoying not because of their message but because of their own ignorance of the topic they claim to have superior knowledge of.

For instance, there is a lot of debate in the scientific community over the causes of changes seen in the Arctic, and in fact a recent NASA press release describes some new conclusions about changes seen in the '90's:

A team of NASA and university scientists has detected an ongoing reversal in Arctic Ocean circulation triggered by atmospheric circulation changes that vary on decade-long time scales. The results suggest not all the large changes seen in Arctic climate in recent years are a result of long-term trends associated with global warming.

But the reality is that it is the AGW proponents who oversimplify the science, when they bother to pay any attention to it at all.

Anybody else remember NASA finding that the other planets in the solar system are ALL experiencing global warming? I seem to recall reading/hearing that.

That's the definative nail in the coffin for me. I don't dispute global warming (or cooling) can occur (and possibly is occuring). What I vehemently dispute is the "accepted" cause (CO2).

To say nothing of the "accepted" solutions (hybrid cars, solar panels, etc... that take no account of the CO2 generated in their construction), or other power generation solutions that take no account for unreliability and whose generation capacity is then taken up by more "reliable" baseload generation facilities (coal and nuclear plants, which btw, nuclear plants are the only power plants that produce no co2 emmisions).

Heat transfer is heat transfer, and if all the other planets are experiencing heat up (or cool down), that means there's probably 1 source/cause, and that would be the sun.

Last time I checked, we couldn't do ANYTHING about that.

Are you familiar with the ground floor movement to take solar to the masses by a company called Citizenre? They are trying market solar with an approach similar to satellite TV, cellular telephones, and alarm systems. That is to provide the customer a complete solar system with no upfront charges and make money from a service contract. In this case the service contract would be a rent agreement. They intend to put a complete solar system on clients home. When the system produces electricity, it will lower the bill from the current utility provider. In most cases the savings from the lower bill will more than cover the rent fee that the company intends to charge. The company currently has no product available but intends to deploy in the middle of 2008. They are currently taking reservations and have 25,500 takers so far. I have written several articles on this company in my blog and even have a couple of videos that I have recorded at www.solarjoules.com. Feel free to take a look. I welcome comments. As in any start up business, a chance exists that they may never get off the ground and fulfill any preorders, but if this is the case - the potential client has not lost anything. If you cannot afford the upfront cost of solar today, this may turn out to be a great alternative.
This solution would mean that we could produce at least a little less pollution and would be a great step "just in case".
