When even Russian and Chinese icebreakers give up on you…

A Russian “research vessel” (term in quotes to rekindle memories of all those “fishing trawlers” they used to run, which were under observation by all those US “weather planes”…)..
Anyway, it seems there’s a Russian ship which was sailing to Antarctica as part of a recreation of “Sir Douglas Mawson’s footsteps into Commonwealth Bay“. It’s gotten trapped by super duper thick ice. Continue reading

Air Scare Debunked: Still no deaths reported from Chinese air pollution

The enviros claim 1,000 deaths per day. Show us a body!!–more–>

From the U.S. China Institute:

ON AN AVERAGE DAY IN CHINA outdoor air pollution causes the premature death of roughly 1,000 people. This is the conservative estimate of World Bank researchers utilizing surveys collected by Chinese government agencies and scholars. A number of news organizations reported that an internal World Bank report put the number who die prematurely each year at 350,000 to 400,000. The World Bank’s preliminary report states that air pollution costs the average Chinese urbanite 18 years of life. In 1997, the World Bank estimated 50,000 Chinese died prematurely each year due to air pollution.

But there are still no reports of deaths from air pollution in China since Steve Milloy wrote this op-ed in January.
