Global Warming Expedition Stranded on North Pole ;-)

Three scientists are stranded in the North Pole due to extreme cold weather.

Love this quote: Laugh
“We’re hungry, the cold is relentless, our sleeping bags are full of ice,” expedition leader Pen Hadow said in e-mailed statement. “Waiting is almost the worst part of an expedition as we’re in the lap of the weather gods.”

What were they expecting? A tropical vacation? Ha Ha!

Hey Expatriate, aren't they in your neck of the woods? Maybe you could give them a hand. Evil!

Quick, someone send them a can of hairspray! Flourocorbons will warm you up! Al Gore said so!

All I know is that this has been one of our coldest winters on record. We've had windchills into the -40s for the past few days, and may be setting records shortly.

Interestingly enough, this winter saw a marked decrease in air quality in town. Why? Because last year's jump in oil prices led a whole lot of people to put in wood stoves or start burning coal. There were places in town where it smelled like an old-time train yard because of the coal smoke.

And therein lies the problem. The lefties complain about oil, but there's not much alternative up here. If the left wingers would get on board with the gas pipeline, we could get gas eventually. But until then, there are no alternative energy sources. Solar is worthless up here in the winter, and there's little wind as a general rule. So while the left was rejoicing in the high price of oil and salivating over the demise of SUVs, Alaskans started cutting down trees and burning coal.

Listen here Nanook of the north, you think you have it bad? Stop whining, get out of your igloo and move around a little. I'll tell you about bad. Yesterday, here in California it dropped all way to 73! Yep , 73! That's like at least the equivalent a hundred below for us. Several girls here at the pool in my complex actually put their towels over their bathing suits!!! Just as I get my martini the right temperature, it warms up! I end up having to drink them faster. Can you imagine the horror???? And me without a muffler! Stop griping and think about someone less fortunate than yourself for once! Some people!!!
