You know that there has to be something shady going on with the way people persist against all evidence. No matter what you say or what evidence you bring, they will not concede that they had been mistaken.
You begin to feel there is something that you are not being told. There is something that they are after that you are not quite aware of yet.
This is the way Climate Alarmists make me feel as they persist that the world is going to burn up soon.
One example of this cult-like adherence to global warming is the resent attempt to sail around the arctic.
An Arctic expedition designed to raise awareness of the perils of man-made climate change is being frustrated by unexpectedly large quantities of ice.
The Polar Ocean Challenge, whose aim is to circumnavigate the Arctic in a sailing boat while the summer ice-melt allows,
But the Challenge is running into something that they should not be able to find. Ice! By now, there should be no summer ice in the arctic. At least that is what you would think if you paid attention to the predictions years ago.
But instead of fewer amounts of ice, it seems they can make no real progress because of the large amount of ice.
A Stamukha is an iceberg that is touching the bottom.
We had to turn round from the ice by the coast last night and find somewhere safe to moor/anchor. There were strong winds so we needed to find somewhere else to sit them out, and the answer was a stamukha.
We knew it might drift, and it did, so when it had drifted into a more dangerous situation, Ben (who was on anchor watch) woke Nikolay and we’ve moved off it to go and have a look at the ice situation just up ahead again.
This would be comical if not so sad.
