To The Daily Sun,
Responding to Tom Sellew's letter, the irony of global warming scientist stuck on the Shokalskiy in the Antarctic ice pack made me chuckle, but also a bit curious. So before I posted a witty jab at global warming supporters, I decided to do a little research. First of all Tom, the scientists on board were not as you say, but were recreating Australian explorer Douglas Mawson's 1911 to 1913 voyage. Couldn't find any credible information saying they were on a global warming expedition.
Secondly, I know you were trying to be funny, but there are no polar bears in Antarctica. My first grader knew that.
On a different note, don't all of you who bicker endlessly in this paper realize that you are both right (when dealing with facts that is)? Republicans and Democrats have endless examples of lying, bigotry, posturing, despicable acts and criminal behavior. The fact is, the people controlling them is the big money banks/corporations. They support candidates who differ on a few social issues, but are moderate all the same. The real issue is their funding, which is left by the wayside. Fox or CNN? They are the same people. They each are bias for their side! Our leaders are the ones they choose, not us. They just sit back and enjoy our squabbling over things like health care and global warming while they rake in the TRILLONS and choose the next group of politicians that will pull the wool over our eyes. They start the wars, shape the media and take our money. Any who oppose them or want to legislate against them are quickly fazed out. Wake up. Research this, it's all true. Spend your money wisely.
