When You Love the Earth, You Have to Spend Huge Resources to Show It.

My freude just overfloweth with schaden.  A bunch of self-congratulating tree-huggers used up a huge amount of resources to show how much they love the earth and go on a fake "research" tour to see how fast the ice is retreating.  Now, that might be happening in the austral climes, since it's SUMMER there.

(Tree hugging now scientifically validated....)

But it's too cold, there is a BLIZZARD, the ice freezes up, and now a gigantic amount of carbon is going to be put into the atmosphere to rescue them.  And, the cherry on top is that the hated U.S. and all its wasteful technology is the only country that actually CAN rescue them.  Makes me want to go out and drive my BMW at really high speed for no particular reason, just to celebrate. (UPDATE:  The wind shifted, and they got out without the Polar Star.  And now the whole thing is an example of international cooperation, instead of an embarrassment).  You can book a berth on the next voyage, if you want to show how much you care about the Earth!  (See what I did there?  Book a berth, save the Earth).

The best insight was the guy at CEI who noted that the tree-huggers were trapped in "18 feet of crushing irony."

Unfortunately I haven't seen one news story that describes their "mission" as one involving global warming or the receding ice of Antarctica.

They say the media love a man-bites-dog story, but they're willing to miss it if it doesn't fit the political narrative.
