We all know of the global warming meetings that were canceled because of the snow storms, or the Algore meetings on global warming issue around a large table made just for this meeting from rain forest trees. Or even the recent group of global warming idiots who went to the artic to prove global warming and were snowed in and starving because of the amount of snowfall and snow storms that hit them.Here's a story to warm the cockles:Seems a group of idiots decide to show the world how they can sail to the artic to prove the global warming myth, using a carbon free sailing vessel.Well they would have sunk, but lucky for them an oil container ship was near by and was able to save them.How much would you have paid to have been a fly on the wall of their sinking ship as they starting packing their belongings to transfer them onto the oil container ship to bail their stupid butts out?And note the name of the ship!

Oh yes, hundreds of hydrophilic humans signed a petition to ban the common chemical substance that is essential to all known forms of life and covers 71% of the Earth’s surface.

Next we have the wonderful green technology again forgetting that the earth doesn't give you a pass just because you are trying to save it.Troy Michigan: A green community center was the shining example of green technology and solar power

Quote

Troy -- It was supposed to be a shining example of the green movement -- a completely independent solar-powered house with no gas or electrical hookups. Seven months ago, officials gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the $900,000 house owned by the city of Troy that was to be used as an educational tool and meeting spot. But it never opened to the public. And it remains closed. Frozen pipes during the winter caused $16,000 in damage to floors, and city officials aren't sure when the house at the Troy Community Center will open.
Oh and the reason the pipes burst?

Quote

Jeff Biegler, superintendent of parks for the city, said the flooding occurred from a glitch in the heater. "The system was designed to kick a heater on to keep water from freezing," Biegler said. "The heater drew all reserve power out of the battery causing the system to back down and the pipes froze
Of course the associate dean claims that people forgot to turn the power back on....when they turned it off for the winter.Of the building that hadn't opened yet, and needed power to keep the pipes from freezing in the winter.Heck it was only $900,000.00. relax

The global warmists have yet another embarrassment on their hands.

Quote

The Catlin Arctic Survey was the brainchild of British explorer Pen Hadow who organized an expedition to trek to the North Pole to highlight how global warming was melting the Arctic ice cap. But his quest was thwarted when Mother Nature responded with fierce winds, bitter cold temperatures, and just plain lousy weather which destroyed ice measuring equipment and hampered resupply efforts, which at one point, left the team close to starvation.While the Hadow team was struggling on the ground, a German expedition was measuring thicker than expected second year ice from the comfort of an aircraft with advanced monitoring equipment. They reported that this second year ice was up to four meters thick, rather than the two meters they expected.Meanwhile, a Russian expedition simply drove to the North Pole in trucks which might be described as Humvees on steroids, with none of the discomforts the Catlin team experienced. But the Russians were more interested in oil than ice thickness. The Russians want to stake a claim to the oil rights in the Arctic Ocean while the Catlin team wants to save us from oil.The team did not see any polar bears but did find bear tracks at one point. The team apparently brought a firearm along just in case, since their website refers to firearms training. Such a practice is common with Arctic explorations since polar bears are known to attack people. It was fortunate that the team did not have to shoot any polar bears they were presumably embarking on this expedition to save the bears.
Hit the linkfor all the details, but the bottom line is that the expedition to help the environment actually had a carbon footprint four times bigger than the Russian oil exploration team. Oh, and the Russians actually got something out of their trip, too.

everything posted here is right. environmentalism is irrational and evil.but if you want the best example of environmentalism getting what it preaches, look no further than the grizzly man. think civilization is evil? think technology is evil? think the natural world is the ideal? want to live with the damn bears? well, you get eaten by a damn bear.the movie 'into the wild' is another good example of the height of this irrationality. although we need to consider the basic health of the planet we live on, environmentalism has taken it way too far. the thing the other posters in this thread wont tell you is that it holds us back in the same way religion does, because environmentalism is the newest world religion. if only they could develop principles consistently through all aspects of their life, but contradiction is a way a life for 99% of people.

We can talk about polluting or not polluting all we want, the planet will have the last laugh, it'll be around for a long, long, long time after we are gone. And the only thing we'll leave behind is a little bit of plastic, maybe.

neither of those men had anything to do with the environmentalism movement, regardless of how badly you'd like for that to be true.

I agree with you on Christopher McCandless... but Timothy Treadwell was. Unless you're saying that neither was in some sort of political group... which would be true.

I mean, I consider park rangers to be a pretty great example of rational environmentalism in action. park rangers HATED treadwell for misleading the public and habituating bears to humans. maybe I'm wrong.

I guess then you have an acceptable level of fecal matter for your bags that carry the food for your family.Me..I don't have an acceptable level.And for the record. I think we are all totally for protecting the environment, stopping pollution, being smart about usage, game wardens controlling hunting based on animal numbers etc.In fact, I would say you can figure that we are aligned with most hunters in regards to the wildernes and what's acceptable to do to it.And no one wants pollution in our streams oceans or parks.We just don't want to sit around crying about the trees that were cut down to make baseball bats, especially since we can grow new ones.
