New Way To Cut Greenhouse Gases Found

The Northwest Passage (yellow line, above) is open for the first time in the recorded history of North America. The Northeast Passage above Russia (blue line) is still partially closed but may open soon. (source)

This is good news for the anthropomorphic Warmies since it should allow a considerable reduction in greenhouse gases a new, shorter shipping routes open between Asia and the East Coast, the East Coast and the West Coast, and Europe and Asia.

Somehow I think they won't see this as a positive development, though.

And somehow, I don't think the earth could care one whit about the reductions in shipping-related greenhouse gases because:

Global warming is an entirely natural phenomenon and its effects can even be beneficial, according to two leading researchers.

Recent climate change is not caused by man-made pollution, but is instead part of a 1,500-year cycle of warming and cooling that has happened for the last million years, say the authors of a controversial study.

Dennis Avery, an environmental economist, and Professor Fred Singer, a physicist, have looked at the work of more than 500 scientists and concluded that it is very doubtful that man-made global warming exists. (Telegraph via Bookworm)

In fact, as I think this through, I'm pretty sure the Greenies will fight any effort to use the passages for shipping. Have to protect the polar bears, you know. Plus, they have to stop any benefits we might receive from exploiting the natural resources of the northern realms.
