So the Greater Thunderbird [or whatever her name is] has set sail?
There has been a bit of a flurry on the Interwebs and of course the mainstream meeja are loving it. You would think that this one voyage is the last chance to save humanity by discovering a new planet. But no, she’s just going to Merca which has already been discovered.
There have been a lot of comments on the Web hoping that she’ll sink. The thought had crossed my mind but I don’t hope that. After all is said and done, she’s just a child who has been sucked in by the Climate Alarmists as a Golden Goose, and frankly I feel sorry for her. She will probably grow out of her current obsession and take up counting spoons in the kitchen drawer or washing her hands a hundred times a day, but she will be forever tarred with the Eco-Saint label.
Anyway if she did drown she would only be sanctified [or deified].
I do wonder though what would happen if her millionair’s yacht gets into trouble? After all, it’s only forty years ago that a sudden and vicious storm caused the Fastnet Race Disaster. Is she prepared to accept help and rescue from a passing oil-guzzling ship, or is she going to go down with the boat in an eco-friendly way? Or maybe she’ll just walk for the rest of the trip?
The site I use for weather forecasting [and I might add, my forecasts are generally more accurate than the Irish Met Office] has a gizmo that shows the little darling’s live location including coordinates –
You can use that information to cheer her on her way.
Or to programme a missile.
