Ice Cores

In the documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” Al Gore presented data from the Vostok Ice Core, which was a collaborative ice-drilling project between Russia, the United States, and France at the Russian Vostok station in East Antarctica.  It yielded the deepest ice core ever recovered, reaching a depth of 3,623 meters. By careful analysis of this historic ice core, researchers reconstructed trends of temperature and CO2 concentrations over a period of 420,000 years.

That was an excerpt from an article in the American Thinker on July 9, 2009 by Andrew Foy and Brenton Stransky. I have no problem with Brent or Andy, my problem is with the Vostok Ice Core Project. Every time I hear some scientist blow about some particular nose bone or some other “artifact” that is seventy-two gazillion years old it makes my blood boil. The problem is that ten, twenty, thirty, whatever years later some giant brain comes down the pike and proves this mastermind wrong.

That isn’t the worst of it though. Some jackal like, oh, I don’t know, let’s say Algore. Takes this crap and runs for a touchdown with it. This is a good analogy, a football game where a player grabs a nerf football thrown onto the field by a fan and runs into the end zone and does his “victory dance”. But the worst part is when the fans go wild and cheer for this jackal.

I don’t know, every time I read something like this it just reminds me that crap and trade is coming to a senate near you, so get your carbon credits now or contact your Senator to STOP IT NOW!
