“Ship of Fools 2” becomes worldwide laughing stock as climate skeptics monitor its course


Months ago a group of true believers in apocalyptic man-made global warming loudly announced a sailing expedition by which they planned to sail around the Arctic Circle.

“We are sailing around the Arctic, around the North Pole,” says the group’s website, “to demonstrate that due to progressive sea ice recession due to Arctic climate change, this is now possible during one season. We hope that the ‘success’ of this expedition will draw attention to the issues surrounding the changing Arctic landscape . . .”

Now the group has become a worldwide joke. Climate skeptics are having days of fun charting the hapless “adventurers” as they fail to get through the feet-thick ice covering the region. See here.
