These clowns will cost Australia 400k
I bet that at times like this countries like Bolivia are having a blast of not having sea access
All 22 Russian crew members stayed with the icebound vessel, which is not in danger of sinking and has weeks' worth of supplies on board. They will wait until the ice that surrounds the ship breaks up.

I thought you didn't believe in conspiracies considering that you have met the 'bigwigs'? Who owns CNN and would be ultimately for this responsible? What other connections do they have in the world? All big questions to ask; I did the same thing with CBS board of governors and it didn't lead down good roads.

As a climate scientist myself I couldn't disagree with you more. Sure the climate is changing. It has been warming for 10k years. If history repeats itself we could potentially see another Jurrrasic with completely melted ice caps. Is man causing it? I think you've been drinking the kool-aid.
The only fools are people that do not realize that Climate Change is happening. in some places you can call it warming in others, cooling.
The fact that humans have affected our planet in an adverse manner is undeniable. Just WTF do people think they have to gain denying it?
Oh wait, most often they are the same people that think Obama has no birth certificate or that the Government flew missiles and remote control planes into buildings.....
There are no answers or facts that will make these people see the truth. This is a fact that is not debatable. Belief in conflict of facts, these brilliant humans not worth my time.
That being said I will not bother to get drug into a never ending debate with such ilk so feel free not to respond to this as I won't answer.

I couldn't agree with you more. My degree was in atmospheric physics and dynamics and I my research position in HI was upper atmospheric cold plasma phenomena. All of that is almost all observing electrical current between the earth and the sun, and we could actually see how it drives climate, especially highly volatile climate like thunderstorms and tornadoes. However we were banned from using the data for climate research and were flat out told we would be terminated if we deviated from our specific research parameters.
Meanwhile, the international team of researchers who were flown off the stranded Russian ship are on board the Australian icebreaker Aurora Australis, which is ferrying them to Australia's Casey Station on Antarctica.
