Global Warming Freaks Ship Antactic Sinks
By Judi McLeod Monday, November 26, 2007
You’d never read this in the mainstream media: The owner of MS Explorer that sank, leaving a huge carbon footprint at the bottom of the Antarctic Ocean Friday is an acolyte of teensy-weensy carbon footprint crusader Al Gore.
G.A.P. Adventures CEO and Explorer owner, Bruce Poon Tip [sic] and Gore have similar ideals, “filling their schedules with speaking engagements on environmental change to educate global audiences.” And that’s straight off of In fact, as recently as last April, both Poon Tip and Gore gave presentations at the Green Living Show in Toronto.“I expressed my admiration for Mr. Gore’s commitment and leadership which spans more than 20 years,” commented Poon Tip. “I also invited him aboard our legendary polar expedition ship, the MS Explorer to visit the Arctic.”The legendary polar expedition ship…”had at least five faults at its last inspection,” according to Greenpeace spokeswoman Bunny McDiarmid. “Maritime records show the MV Explorer has completed more than 40 cruises to the ice, but has lately been suffering maintenance and safety problems.” Maintenance and safety problems never kept the MS Explorer from setting out for the Antarctica two weeks ago… There was little mention in the mainstream media that the passengers were comprised of eco warriors or that they had spent thousands of dollars to see ice at a much closer range than they ever dreamed… The 38-year-old vessel was sold by Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) to G.A.P Adventures in 2004. A&K has since acquired Explorer II, now called “Minerva”… Meanwhile, Greenpeace believes tourism in Antarctica should be strictly limited because of the fate of MS Explorer, but the silence is deafening from Poon Tip and Gore about the huge carbon footprint left on the ocean floor.

The ice must've been thicker than they thought and punched a hole in the hull.

Too bad uncle Al couldn't've gone down with the ship. Probably was circling overhead in his jet.

I'm a little confused here. The ship was in no way connected to Al Gore... the owner was only a fan of his. The company is just another tourist company offering 'extreme vacations' of a sort, they are not environmental activists. The largest group of environmental activists (aka Greenpeace) also condemned the sinking of the ship so everyone here is siding with Greenpeace?

A tourist ship sunk... it happens several times a year. A Canadian "journalist" well known for being sensationalist, exploitative, and generally whacked in the head draws an obscure link between a sunk tourist ship's owner and Al Gore because they were independent speakers at the same convention and this is news how?

To note: Judi McLeod also was well known for believing 9/11 to have been a Mafia plot and not the work of terrorists. She is a complete fruitcake.

In 1989 the Exon Veldiaze spilled 12.million gallons of crude all over the beautifull Prince William sound, Alaska. And here 20 years later you can still walk all 12,000 square miles of the beach and still Scoop up crude inches below the surface.

A sunk boat seems laughable don't it.

Hey fossil ,when you gonna send a letter to Exon .
