This climate conference is happening this week too.
It looks like you can view webcasts of this one if you have the bandwidth.
It's always fun to find that current hoaxs were discovered eons ago. What goes around comes around eh? UB
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and
hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series
of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. - H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)

Explorers On Global Warming Expedition Stranded in North Pole by Cold Weather
Wednesday, March 18, 2009
Three global warming researchers stranded in the North Pole by cold weather were holding out hope Wednesday as a fourth plane set off in an attempt deliver them supplies.
The flight took off during a break in bad weather after “brutal” conditions halted three previous attempts to reach the British explorers who said they were nearly out of food, the Agence France-Presse reported.
“We’re hungry, the cold is relentless, our sleeping bags are full of ice,” expedition leader Pen Hadow said in e-mailed statement. “Waiting is almost the worst part of an expedition as we’re in the lap of the weather gods.”
Hadow, Martin Hartley and Ann Daniels began an 85-day hike to the North Pole on February 28 to measure sea ice thickness, the AFP reported.
With bad weather hampering supply flights, the team is was down to half-rations, battling desperate sub-zero temperatures and unable to proceed, the AFP reported.
"It'll be a relief to get our new supplies," Hadow said in a statement Wednesday. "Until (the plane) does arrive, we need to conserve energy and can't really move on."
The expedition now expects to arrive at the North Pole in late May.

Well my British friends, I hope you aren't one of the ones the left wing man caused global warming activists want to reduce!

All of you experts might enjoy USGS CoreCast. At least you would be on the bleeding edge. Gallons of oil in Montana & North Dakota and a new method to handle the CO2 released by humans.
USGS CoreCast you experts might want to stay current with this.
The other night,the 1958 movie,The Blob,with Steve McQueen was on.I hadn't seen it in a long time so I sat through the last half hour or so.It ends up that freezing the blob was the only way to stop it.They froze it with fire extinqishers and then had a military plane haul it up to the arctic where it would stay frozen forever.It occured to me,If global warming is real,and that thing ever thaws out.We're screwed.

It's amazing how similar things are the world over. This fellow came to do a 6-yr fellowship at Lehigh University many years ago. Could just barely speak English then. Liked the opportunities here, and sent for his wife. Had children. Now is a U.S. citizen. He said he was tempted to return to China because there is much opportunity there now for his line of work, but his children could never take the radical change in lifestyle. His parents and sister are still in China.
Another interesting aside, he mentioned meeting with an Iranian national recently who expressed that the Iranian populace does not buy into their politicians' view of the U.S. He said much the same is true of the Chinese people at large. The Iranian said that those countries whose politicians most malign the U.S. are the very countries where their populace likes Americans most Ironic.
We came to the conclusion that if we could just get rid of all the politicians, the man-on-the-street, one-on-one, could solve most of these problems the world faces.
Also interesting ... while we fear we are becoming too socialistic; the Chinese politicians fear that their own people are becoming too capitalistic.
Kind of a hoot when you think about it. Maybe we should send some of our politicians to China?
