Another creative demonstration in the city featured a 4-tonne Greenland iceberg sent to Glasgow to melt outside the summit.
Gail Whiteman, the founder of Arctic Basecamp, said the block of ice was a reminder of the climate crisis taking place in the Arctic region.
She said the iceberg was brought in a “carbon-offset” cargo ship…
“It is one eco-region that packs a big punch and we felt that negotiators here had to actually come face to face with the Arctic so we brought the iceberg.”
I love how reporter Isabella Higgins describes this mindless vandalism and fossil fuel extravagance as “creative.” There must be a hundred artistic or representational ways to symbolise a block of ice that don’t require a cargo ship. On a more positive note, it’s good to see covid honour the promise it gave to the media last year to abstain from attending left-wing protests.
All that fuel and energy hypocritically expended to bring an iceberg to Glasgow, and to prove exactly what?
That icebergs melt outside Arctic waters?
As we used to say in school back in the 1970s, “well, duh!”
Sure it is …
Well off Australians flew in on fossil fuel jets to protest, or were they all ready in the UK?
Either way I don’t much care for their hypocrisy.
I see no crisis in the Arctic region. Arctic sea ice has been trending sideways for 14 years now.

Ms Whiteman should stop watching the ABC and start looking at actual data.
Dick Smith already did this in 1978
only 1000 people in Sydney care about the climate

For argument’s sake…wouldn’t less ice in the Arctic region be good for those who have to live there? Yes, the ecosystem will experience change, but humans are very adaptable and a warmer climat ewould certainly be friendlier to humans.
Which raises the questions:
Why are extremist conservationists so anti-human?
What are the presuppositions of their philosophy?
The cost and harm to their supposed interests of shipping so much ice such a distance is lunacy, and very symbolic of the entire sham.
The could have just had it made locally
When you stop believing in God (as a society) you stop believing that Man was made in God’s image which means you think that every aspect of them is evil. If you replace Man with Gaia as the climate lunatics have, everything about Man is irredeemable. Gaia doesn’t provide a path to redemption. Man’s original sin against Gaia is permanent. It can’t be undone. The sacrifices ( of other people’s money) are worthless.
One of the IGCCC head honchos made it clear a few years ago:
It’s nothing to do with Climate and everything to do with redistribution of the wealth.
Which is likely still a lie.
But it’s nothing to do with climate.
The $64 trillion question, Roger.
I think A.R.’s explanation is exactly right.
There is so much hatred in these people. They are nothing like the British Christians of the nineteenth century who agitated to end slavery, for example. They are nothing like the Christians who campaigned to end segregation in America in the 1950s or the Poles of Solidarność who risked everything to stare down the USSR. They are toxic, monstrous individuals, most of them. And pulling their strings are some extremely unscrupulous gazillionaires profiting from it all.
