Global Freezing?


Recently, a group of “global warming” scientists were trapped in the Antarctic Sea. The Russian ship Akademik Shokalskiy, which the scientists were aboard, was on a research expedition. It got stuck after a blizzard’s strong winds pushed the ice around the ship, freezing it in place.

Just what was their mission? Sources report Chris Turney, a climate scientist, led the mission. Mr. Turney has set up a carbon refining company called Carbonscope, which has developed technology to fix carbon from the atmosphere and make green by-products, thereby reducing greenhouse-gas levels. On this trip, he was going to report and compare environmental changes.

Mr. Turney and company didn’t find the melting ice they were looking for. Furthermore, the media covered the rescue of those aboard the ship but failed to reveal the scientists set out to prove global warming by documenting increased melting ice.
