Passengers had to be evacuated to safety when their ship got trapped in arctic ice last week. The intrepid voyagers were concerned about, you guessed it, global warming and melting polar ice.
Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole. The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice. All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. 7 crew remains on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.
So, people concerned about global warming took a ship that runs on fossil fuels got trapped in arctic ice (in September) and had to be rescued by a helicopter that runs on fossil fuels.
Will they have a road to Damascus moment?
I’m not holding my breath.
And not because there is a case to be made for less ice up north meaning colder weather down here. And there is less ice but not cataclysmically less. Enough to trap a boatload of climate “tourists” and the world is ending due to ice loss documentary crew.
What’s that say about them or their captain or ice or global warming? Nothing. Well, not nothing. Somebody has free-range egg on their face, and it’s not the deniers.
