Global Warming Activist Freezes in Antarctica (Updated)
(Core story retracted by the media: While reported by many news organizations, including ecological websites, it appears that this individual did not actually die in Antarctica–I do stand by the rest of my comments, however)
This is too ironic to ignore. But it isn’t the first time that one of the “Greens” has gone to one of the two poles and found out it was not the expected sultry 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Dog sled “musher” Will Steger had a similar, if less tragic experience years ago. Did he learn? These type rarely do.
According to a story by Fox News, James Sneider and a Journalist friend talked about going to document the “devastation” of Global warming, but did not even disclose the details to his own wife:
“He kept talking about when they ‘get down to chili’, and I thought they were talking about the order in which they would consume their food supplies”, Mrs. Schneider recounted. “I had no idea they were talking about Chile, the country from which you usually fly or sail in order to reach Antarctica.”
Again, not smart. I constantly have to question the intelligence of these “Professors” of Climate Change, who are apparently completely unaware that temperatures in Antarctica get as low as 70 below zero (Fahrenheit).
I have reported on this nonsense before when we were told by some in the Goracle’s rabid legions in the media, “The North Pole might be clear of Ice this summer”. It’s easy to make such ridiculous claims, not much about Global Warming is based on facts, but what they also failed to recognize is that there are web cameras there where we can watch and see the facts. The result? Ice and more ice. In fact, there were times in mid-summer when the cameras seemed iced over.
Sneider and his friend were found frozen near their two snowmobiles, with orange rope spread out on the ice stating one cryptic message:
“Help-COLD” (No duh).
Perhaps it seems fitting that these people were eliminated by Darwinism, for it is certainly true that if one is not intelligent enough to prepare for extreme subzero temperatures simply on the basis of “I think they are lying about the temperature in Antarctica” is foolhardy.
I am not trying to make light of the deaths of two people, but some actions certainly lead to death. If Al Gore told you that gravity did not exist, would you jump off a skyscraper? Science is often common sense, and some should try to have some.
