If global warming is man made.
Why has Antarctica been melting since the last ice age?

surely it wouldn't be melting before modern humans existed.

So we have simply made the planet hotter quicker than it would have?

is this why we switched to energy saving light bulbs that give out less heat?

The 'rona-HOAX puff piece being used as an excuse is total BS.

The Healy suffered a severe casualty to one of its main propulsion motors last summer and had to limp back to Seattle.

This is the solicitation for evaluating the damage to the propulsion motor.

Details of their casualty.

Healy is currently in the Mare Island shipyard undergoing preps for the propulsion motor replacement.

So . . . . Is McMurdo station even going to be resupplied this year??

Maybe those pesky Russians will send one of their conventionally-powered breakers down there.

Remember when they resupplied Nome, AK several years ago?

Al Gore, the UN, the IPCC, the Democrats said since 2010, there is no more ice in the Arctic. So this has to be BS.
