New Labour science by Ed Miliband.

First up ignore the facts.
Those facts are clear. The 10 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1997, ice sheets are retreating so fast that in summer we can now sail the North West passage through the Arctic
Gosh so how did they do that in the 1930's then Eddy?

Then again how did the Vega manage to sail the northeast passage in 1878/79.




HERE is the link to this petition.

A wee update on the other Miliband, Dave who claimed that global warming would lead to alligators basking off the coast of Sweden, thats right alligators will swim through salt water seas all the way up to Sweden in order to find fresh water.  HHHHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMM, call me a cynical old bastard but I really can not see alligators off of Swedens coast.

Ya see it's like this there are two species of gator, one in China(a rather long way for them to swim) and another in the USA(also a rather long swim), add to that the sods live in fresh water and Sweden for all its many attractions is surrounded by salt water; so I think it will remain alligator free no matter what happens to the climate.

Just keep on ignoring the facts Ed(an Dave)... Hat tip to Dick Puddlecote for this one.

There's no such thing as "The North West Passage". There's lots of them. Some are more obvious than others, some more passable than others.

What made the NWP passable was that Amundsen realised that you could sail through Rae Strait, thus avoiding the Ice of King William Island. This is not an obvious route at all, even on the half finished maps of the 1850s. Nor is it particularly easy for large ships, in the narrows west of Gjoahaven.

What Millie Band is probably referring to (though he probably doesn't know it) is the 'obvious' passage, a great deal of which was traversed by Parry in 1821 - go through Lancaster Sound and head due East. No one actually knows if this is sailable across at any previous time - it may well have been in Parry's first year in the Canadian Arctic. However, they decided to Winter in Melville Bay.

One thing *any* review of Polar Exploration books will tell you pdq is that the amounts of Ice vary spectacularly from year to year.

For example, in Parry's first year above, sailing up and down the Melville Sound area was pretty easy. The next year they didn't get out at all, the year after they only *just* got out.

Simlarly John Ross was pulled deep into Prince Regent Inlet in a 'good' year, stranded for four years and lost his boat - and of course most famously Franklin, lured into Peel Sound by an easy year which allowed him to sail round Cornwallis Island, and lost forever off the West shore of King William Island.

Petition signed and your post tweeted, mate.

I am so fed up listening to this biased lefty bullshit "science" about nothing!

True, I should have clarified that there are many different passages.

Still this argument on wee poor dying polar bears an shrinking ice is going to go on for some time.

Only the other month we had his not very bright bro Dave, banging on about aligators basking off the Swedish coast in a few years time.

Although he did not really explain quite how the aligators were going to get to Sweden or quite what the attraction to Sweden is for gators.

Cheers Barking, although I know McSnotty will ignore it no matter how many people sign.

Much like his promise to grant us a vote on Europe, or the petition for him to piss off that over 70,000 folk signed.
