Greenpeace says the “pollution” from the North Sea gas platform Elgin impacts our global climate the most. Hat-tip warmist site: CO2 Handel.
The gas platform, operated by French petroleum company Total, sprang a gas leak days ago and its crew had to be evacuated. According to Greenpeace chemist and activist Manfred Santen on Monday:
The greatest environmental impact is expected to be to the climate.”
That’s a green way of saying that there will be no significant pollution to water. Clearly he wants the public to believe that this small scale leak, which does not even come close to a volcano in magnitude, is going to have an impact on our climate. This is just plain silliness.
Santen is on board a Greenpeace vessel and is taking air samples near the defective platform.
The platform has been in the news in Europe, and activists are doing all they can to spin the gas leak into a sort of Deepwater Horizon scale catastrophe. This is a sign of desperation.
As no water is being polluted, all they are left to say is that it will impact the climate. Imagine that folks, one platform leak will impact the climate. This tells you something about the state of the climate movement today. Grabbing at any straws they can.
The warmist CO2 Handel here writes:
Gas has been flowing out above the water surface and into the air for one week. The gas contains climate-damaging methane as well as poisonous sulfur dioxide.”
According to the German news service DPA, Santen will measure the air near the platform using gas chromatography.
Aside: I was deepsea fishing earlier today on the Baltic Sea. It was snowing this morning. It was the coldest April fishing trip I can remember (I go twice a year – every time in April and October).
