Recently a Norwegian ship got stuck in the ice while on an Antarctic expedition and then an icebreaker going to their rescue also got stuck. The purpose of the expedition was to show the effects of global warming. A few years ago Ann Bancroft and her companion were making an Artic expedition to show the effects of global warming. Their quest was cut short because the temperature got down to minus 100 degrees below zero and they were suffering because of the extreme cold and had to be rescued. Al Gore predicted that the Arctic ocean would be ice free by 2013 yet the Arctic and Antarctic are at record levels of ice. For the past 17 years there has been virtually no increase in the earths temperature.
Some of the environmental extremist who are pushing the global warming fraud are pushing to shut down our coal power plants such as the one at Becker. They have been pushing wind towers and solar power all of which would double our electricity bills. East Central Electric has written several articles in their news letter “Advantage” explaining “rules that effectively eliminate coal from the nation’s energy strategy would cause electric bills to soar and constrain the economy and the cost of providing power is tens of millions of dollars higher each year [40 million in 2012] than it would be if it wasn’t mandated to buy renewable energy. They end by stating “We are not opposed to renewable energy, whether owned by developers, utilities or consumers. However, we all must be aware of the financial burden laws and mandates can place on us and our members. We ask our lawmakers to consider both the intended and unintended consequences when designing future energy policy for our states and our nation.”
Thankfully more and more folks are beginning to realize the scare of the disastrous consequence of global warming is bogus and needs to be exposed.
