Ice-Trapped Global Warming Expedition Owes Planet Some Trees

The laughs just keep coming regarding the ship of fools that ventured into Antarctica in search of global warming and got stuck in the theoretically nonexistent ice. Now it seems the moonbat crew owes Gaia some trees:

The 52 passengers … spent eight days trapped before a helicopter from the Chinese ship Xue Long transferred them to Australian vessel Aurora Australis, which will take them to Hobart.

China is the world’s leader in producing the carbon emissions that according to liberal dogma cause global warming.

The expedition had pledged to plant about 800 kauri trees in Northland to cover its carbon footprint. Environmentalists believe planting trees helps to offset the impact of burning fuels such as diesel.

But former Act Party leader and Herald on Sunday columnist Rodney Hide said that would have to increase to about 5000 trees to make up for the fossil fuels burned in the rescue.

Expedition leader Chris Turney said more trees would be needed than earlier estimated but he was yet to work out how many.

Turney could spare himself the trouble if he could just convince his fellow warmists to stop cutting down forests to make way for economically inefficient, bird-chopping wind farms. From Scotland:

The Forestry Commission has disclosed that more than 6,200 acres (2,510 hectares) of trees north of the Border have been felled to allow the construction of wind farms since 2007.

With the commission estimating that on average 810 trees are planted per acre, this is the equivalent of more than five million being chopped down.

Over the same period, fewer than 2,000 acres of trees have been replanted within wind farm sites. This means there has been net loss of around 3.4 million trees to make way for turbines.

If Turney doesn’t have the juice to slow down wind farms, he could serve Gaia by getting stuck in the ice and needing to be rescued by Chinese polluters again. The extra CO2 emissions will help existing trees to grow.

    I wonder how many trees pResident Lucifer will ahve to plant to offset Moochelas vacations…

    Rush Limbaugh used to quote statistics that there were more trees on the North American continent now than there was when the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. The tree farms run by the big paper companies have planted millions of acres of trees to keep the world bureaucracies and the rest of us in copier and toilet paper.

    Sheryl Crow could not be reached for comment.

    The left’s answer to ignorance is MORE ignorance. No stupid is TOO stupid for liberals. Yhey just wallow in it.

  4. TED says:

    Sheryl Crow was busy STACKING her stiff undies. She too was worried about her carbon footprint and using water

  5. Sam Adams says:

    Each day that passes provides more proof that the Warmists are a religious cult. Now, they must plant trees as penance for the sin of burning carbon.

    The Goracle must be pleased with their sacrifice.

    Well, I have said they should have been made to walk out, and then sail in leaky lifeboats to South Georgia. 🙂

    Here’s a picture for the troll. Note: very little text to have to read, Mr. Troll…

    Babs, you know, feeding a troll is like telling Lucifer to “chill”…and this troll has a loose screw. 🙄

    Plant trees? How about this; PAY FOR YOUR DAMN RESCUE! Bunch of freeloaders.
