Global warming leads to....

This is priceless. The contradictions are amazing.

First, global warming is revealing areas of the Arctic which are rich in gas, oil and minerals, usually not accessible as they are under tonnes of ice.

LEXI METHERELL: Neil Hamilton has had a long association with international policy in the Arctic.
Among his roles has been leading the World Wildlife Fund's work across the region.

The rush is not just oil and gas, it's also shipping. The transport route through the - across the north coast of Russia, called the North East Passage or the Northern Sea Route, is seeing dramatic increases in commercial shipping.
We're seeing increased fishing activity as different fish move north as a result of climate change and we're seeing dramatically increased oil and gas exploration.

What a load of cobblers! ROFLOL .. Just contrast this nonsense with this story.

Oh well, at least Hamilton -- associate professor (!@##!) is in good company with foolishness at the ANU.
