After a few days in Quebec and Montreal we are heading for Mackinaw City Michigan, traveling across Canada. I can now confirm that liberalism is strong and robust in French Canada. Nanny government if everywhere. We met a lot of very nice people and had a great time, but my tongue is raw from forced constraint.
Yesterday we toured a research ship that claimed to have visited Antarctica, broadcasting there findings daily over the Internet. This former German fishing vessel was converted to sail, and equipped with a TV production studio. The message was that in 20 years global warming will melting all the ice killing all those cuddly little penguins and temperature all temperature sensitive sea life at our southern pole. That global warming will cause more sever weather, etc. Most of the presentation was in French, with some translation by our tour guide. Hard to frame an argument, and destroy the experience for the other people on the the tour.
Our tour guide was retired math teacher, who had bought into this global warming hoax. I will do my best to re-educate him in the coming weeks via the Internet by asking him to test his views with some facts. Not much real warming from CO2 and global warming does not cause more sever weather and the US has been reducing CO2 while EU has not.
The researchers made the same mistake that CBS's Scott Pelley made. According to the map on the ship research team really visit the Shetland Islands over 120 kilometers to the North of the Antarctic Peninsula an area with active under sea volcano. Details here. The problem is they were claiming to be reporting on the Antarctica.
More on this when I have more time. We need to get rolling this morning.
