This afternoon’s top climate fraud is a claim that warming temperatures and disappearing sea ice threatens penguins.

Had the author actually done any research, she would have known that Antarctic sea ice is increasing, not decreasing.
She also would have known that Antarctica is not warming.

Facts and scientific inquiry have no place in climate science. It is 100% junk science and fraud, 100% of the time.
Last year they said the increasing sea ice would kill the Adele penguins because they would have to walk too far, the ice would increase faster than they could walk. Pretty sure the Koch brothers had something to do with it.

She was thinking Arctic
There’s a difference?
Yes, but put yourself in the guys’ shoes. It’s bad enough to stand there through the Antarctic winter. Boredom, darkness and howling wind. Guys can’t even go fishing when they pass them the egg. Stand here, she says, I’ll be back im a couple of weeks and the egg’d better be ok. I wouldn’t do it if you paid me, with or without global warming. And now he must listen to her bitching about the Arctic and the future of the planet and whether she should have kids. No wonder the guys get turned off.
Wouldn’t you? Be honest, would you stand there like a post with an egg between your legs and suffer this BS on top of it? It’s a bad deal to start with. I won’t be surprised if they go extinct.
Those are Emperor Penguins. Adelie don’t do that. They follow the sun like the Beatles.
Details details – it was still funny as all get out!
No penguins in arctic
Uh, she should have at least looked at other’s recent research on the same subject – like this one from last year on the doubling of that penguin’s population. But looking at facts takes away from the ability to arm-wave scary predictions I guess.
“The study, which appeared in the journal Scientific Reports, looked at various levels of warming that are expected over this century, as predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the United Nations’ group that’s the gold standard for climate forecasts.”
Summary: garbage in, garbage out.

In case you haven’t noticed, people (even scientists) will say whatever they need to assure next years grants.
They, like the rest of us, need to feed their families. Unlike the rest of us, they have readily accessible income in the name of Uncle Sam.
Just gotta twang the right heartstrings to keep the $$$s rolling.
