Maverick meteorologist Pier Corbyn at his site here has issued a statement on the rescue of Professor Turkey and his global warming boatpeople.
As the story unfolds, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Turney’s preparation was really not quite up to standard, to put it kindly. I wrote about this at length 3 days ago here.
Funny how he made sure to have top journalists from the top media outlets right on the spot, yet couldn’t be bothered to seek out competent weather forecasting services. Eventually the expedition ended up relying on help from “denier” meteorologists. Oh the irony.
And as Anthony Watts now mentions here, it’s clear that they really did not charter the most adequate of vessels. Also it seems that communication with the Russian crew was a bit impaired by a language barrier. Did anything go right?
The Ice will weaken as winds change in WeatherAction’s next big circulation change which is around ~17JAN so maybe by 20th or so they could have another go at getting the ship(s) out. We base this estimate on the fact that the world weather system is just that – a world system. Major changes in the NH circulation and Jet stream have correspondences in the SH. [Follow reports from our New Zealand & Australian subscribers and you can see that]. Subscribers to WeatherAction Eu /Br+Ir or USA will have noticed major changes in circulation through 17-20th and I estimate it is 80% likely this also means DIFFERENT winds in Antarctica which should do the business.
Of course when this happens the Warmist liars in BBC and the intellectually strained Independent, Guardian and New York Times will doubtless say the wind change is a sign of their lost Global Warming cause being redeemed.
I urge all who support evidence-based science and accountable policies THIS YEAR to give these fraudsters, spongers and thieves NO QUARTER WHATSOEVER. We have to make 2014 so uncomforable for them and their lie machine that they would wish they could return to the sanctuary of an ice-bound ship or a Russian jail to escape the wrath of the people who are now suffering – and some dieing – under rising fuel charges and hiked food prices and taxes which are a direct consequence of the insane policies these green parasites have foisted upon the world”.
Finally, I just get a kick out of the way Turney keeps insisting that weather down there is unpredictable and so none of it is his fault. Yet the guy turns right around and has the next person believing he can tell us what the climate will be in the year 2100!
