Antarctica’s Climate Change Leave Huge Carbon Footprint On The Ice They Polluted
CHRIS Turney and his band of climate experts once holidaying aboard the MV Akademik Shokalskiyv not only learned that Antarctica is cold and man-made fibres excellent and helicopters faster than global warming , they know what certainty is.
“It’s 100 percent we’re off!” Chris Turney, a professor and a leader of the scientific expedition, said on Twitter with a link to a video of the Snow Eagle landing.
100%. No room for scepticism, there. Fact.
Ross Clark reports:
The Xue Long, the Chinese ship which provided the helicopter to airlift Turney and his colleagues from the Akademik Shokalskiy to the Aurora Australis, has itself now become stuck in ice. Meanwhile 22 Russian crew remain aboard the Shokalskiy. Both ships are stronger than the Endurance, Shackleton’s ship whose timbers were crushed in similar circumstances in 1915, prompting his famous voyage and trek to the whaling station on South Georgia, but both ships remain in danger from further movements of the ice.
Tracy Rogers, Turney’s colleague at the University of New South Wales, is upbeat:
“The Chinese captain is an incredible ambassador for his country,” she said today. She is very lucky that China, which normally incurs the wrath of the climate change lobby due to its fondness for new coal-fired power stations, has chosen the path to wealth – which includes ships and helicopters able to rescue scientists in distress – rather than a path to carbon-free enlightenment.
Anyone worked out the carbon footprint of Turney and his gang of fossil-fuel driven climate change experts?
