Anyone Who Says The Right Words Is An Expert

As long as they spew global warming tripe, any geography student can be a climate expert.

LOS ANGELES, June 1 (UPI) — Global warming will greatly change arctic transportation networks, limiting access in certain areas and vastly increasing it in others, U.S. researchers say.

“Popular perception holds that climate warming will mean an opening up of the Arctic, but our study shows that this is only partly so,” Laurence C. Smith, a UCLA professor of geography, said. “Rising maritime access for ships will be severely countered by falling vehicular access on land.”

Researchers say improved access by sea will benefit coastal communities, coastal resource-extraction operations, tourism, fishing and shipping concerns, while the loss of land access routes could hamper inland mining and timber operations, inland oil and gas drilling, as well as smaller inland communities often inhabited by indigenous peoples, a UCLA release reported Wednesday.

“As sea ice continues to melt, accessibility by sea will increase, but the viability of an important network of roads that depend on freezing temperatures is threatened by a warming climate,” said lead study author Scott Stephenson, a UCLA graduate student in geography

    Indigenous people are victims! Anyone who isn’t a straight, white male is a victim of capitalism and bullying.

    Do these people actually know where the “ON” switch is on a computer? If so they should try this wondeful web site.

    I agree that if the sun stayed above the horizon at the north pole 24 hours a day and 365 days a year the climate in that region of the world would be different.
    If Cows had wings we would all be covered with Bull Sh!t.
    If elephants had wings we would all be in trouble because I for one would not want an elephant landing on my shoulder.

    My nicpick for the day. As long as they spew global warming tripe , and geography student can be a climate expert.

    Any?

    What is he talking about? Freezing temperatures destroy roads. I have been on the Dalton Highway; it would be in much better condition but for the freezing temperatures. The roads here in Florida seem to work just fine.

    There is no way humanity could adapt to an existence without ice roads.

    Dreaming up wild eyed alarmist predictions… err sorry possible future scenarios (CYA for when they don’t pan out) is the definition of a climate expert.
