Unfortunately, it will not help.

Maybe he's praying humans will start feeding climate change deniers to polar bears.

I'll stick with feeding "climate science deniers" to the wolves, if it's all the same to you:

The denialosphere is of course now spinning like crazy attempting to pin something, anything, on Michael Mann.

Today is All Fools' Day, but this is no joke.

What on Earth are Rep. Higgins and ex. Prof. Curry on about with all this “RICO” business?

I posted that image on my social media page, along with the following:

Prayer alone won’t prevent dangerous human-caused climate change. According to the Bible, “faith without works is dead” (James 2:20) and “whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7). Some people improperly use “God’s in control” to suggest that undesirable consequences won’t result from poor choices. (photo by Jessica Andrews in Newfoundland on March 29, 2017)

There's a squirrel at the top of that cross. Just a hungry bear.

I'm sure the bear was praying that news of the latest Russian Arctic military base and additional nuclear ice breakers was just a bad dream..

@ John C

Good to see that the Daily Malicious has truly got its finger on the pulse. In that article (dated 18th April) the DM states that...

"Earlier this year it was reported that Moscow is starting to build nuclear icebreakers as it vies for dominance in the polar region with traditional rivals Canada, the United States, and Norway as well as newcomer China."

Despite the DM's "earlier this year" bollox, the first I heard about Russian plans to build a new class of nuclear icebreaker was way back in 2013.

Scheduled completion of the first in class (the Arktika) has slipped from this year, but it is expected to be launched during 2018.

Work is under way on the next two (to be called Sibir and Ural), and Rosatomflot is giving consideration to a fourth and fifth vessel.

That is, of course, in addition to new conventional-powered ice breakers for the Russian Navy. The first of these, the Ilya Muromets, was launched in June of last year.

You just can't beat the Daily Malicious for breaking news, can you?


Going from the sublime to the ridiculous, it is quite astonishing to realise that there are some on the forum who think that the Arctic will be ice-free all year round within the next 6 or 7 years. So, if that were true, there should be some nuclear powered vessels going for a song by about 2023, or thereabouts.

There's no helping some people.

He must have been ravenous to eat the Roman soldiers first.
