How Cold Was It?

MINNEAPOLIS - A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite.

I'm dying here. This is just too rich. I got wind of this from the Dread Rotti Imperator, Misha I, and I can't stop laughing.

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.

This little piddy went subzero, and this little piddy turned blue; this little piddy fell off ... Too bad they brought the heat resistant-Global Worming batteries with them.

On Monday, the pair was at Canada's Ward Hunt Island, awaiting a plane to take them to Resolute, Canada, where they were to return to Minneapolis later this week.

Like all eco-loons, they are not willing to go the distance when it actually costs them something, like body parts. The heart and soul of the whole warming scheme is that it is going to cost YOU, the tax payer. It costs the taxpayer to hire these SOB's so they can make grand entrances and falsify data, it costs the taxpayer to host these ridiculous international conferences where they can beat their breasts and scream Death, Doom and Destruction if we don't do something Now.

But how cold was it?

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.

That is really cold. Almost as cold as Hillary's side of the bed. Almost as cold as Maureen Dowd's chances of marrying a straight guy. And no where near as cold as that part of Hell where Gore is going to find himself when global warming kicks in.

I am kinda glad these women had enough sense to get their asses out of danger, but they screwed up. You always prepare for the worst eventuality in these kinds of expeditions, like - gee - it is the Artic, it is winter, and it could get real c-c-c-cold. But my sympathy extends only so far for people who refuse to acknowledge the incredible complexity of creation and think that they know better.

These idiots were going to gather "photographic evidence" (??) of global warming and even go swimming. What photographic evidence? Palm trees? Sandy beach cabanas?

"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."

Another thing you see with global warming is nutroots roaming around ice fields without a clue as to what they are doing. As for unpredictable, you never know what an idiot will do.
