Ages-Old Icecap at North Pole Is Now Liquid, Scientists Find – NYTimes.com

Apparently 1926 was a very long time ago, because in 1926 the same newspaper reported open water at the pole.

  1. Hoist by their own petard.

  2. John B., M.D. says:

    Well, at least NYT appended a correction.
    The problem is their initial writing on topics always seems to go in the liberal alarmist direction.

    • NielsZoo says:

      … and who sees the corrections? It was bad when retractions/corrections were printed days later on page A-22 but now with the web versions they stick it at the end of the story. How many people actually go back and re-read the story and see the corrections?

  3. Why pick 1926? Aren’t there later dates in the 1940s when submarines were surfacing there?

    • Scott Scarborough says:

      1959. The USS Skate nuclear submarine. There is a photograph of it surfaced at the North Pole with water around it on the net.

  4. Ian L. McQueen says:

    I have two photos of submarines surfaced at the north pole (according to the identification) in 1959 and 1987, but I was unable to attach them to this message.

    This one? Nuclear warfare made friendly by scientific adventure. Only nuclear submarines were capable of travelling far enough beneath the ice to find the “open water,” and even then these submarines would often punch through a thin section when they couldn’t find a big enough ice-free hole.

  6. au1corsair says:

    Oops, tag line didn’t post, and according to Wikipedia it is the wrong submarine.

    The correct submarine is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Nautilus_(SSN-571)

    Ain’t it grand that there were atomic submarines 50 million years ago? And cameras to photograph them?

  7. Dave N says:

    Gotta love those own goals. There once was a time when journalists checked their old articles; even from other news companies. They’ve “boosted their productivity” now by completely ignoring history (or by doing other research or fact checking); much like other climate alarmists.

    • There is no substitute for total victory! says:

      They’ve “boosted their productivity” by doing other research ….”
      Do you mean like watching E-Porn on company time?
