Great commentary by Christopher Booker
14 Sep 08 – Excerpts: Much publicity was given to
Lewis Gordon Pugh, who set out to paddle a kayak to the Pole to
demonstrate the vanishing of the Arctic ice. At 80.5 degrees north,
still 600 miles short of his goal, he met with ice so thick that he and
his fossil-fuelled support ship had to turn back.
It took the admirable
Watts Up With That blog, run by the American meteorologist Anthony
Watts, to point out that in 1893 the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen
found the Arctic so ice-free that he was able to kayak above 82 degrees
north, 100 miles nearer the Pole than our hapless campaigner against
"unprecedented global warming".
A vegetarian Hindu, Dr Pachauri not only used
highly tendentious figures to promote his cause but said nothing about
the contribution made to global warming by India's 400 million sacred
cows, which presumably would still be free to vent wind even if the rest
of humanity is converted to eating veggieburgers.
