Caught In The Ice

Passengers from the Russian ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy trapped in the ice 1,500 nautical miles south of Hobart, Australia, walk around the ice. Passengers on board a research ship that has been trapped in Antarctic ice for a week are expected to be rescued by helicopter, after three icebreakers failed to reach the paralyzed vessel, officials said Tuesday.

In his last Wallace Street Journal column of 2013, David Bond writes of this expedition: Just who are these scientists and “tourists” and what was their mission before getting mired in a South Pole Slurpee? Good luck finding out from the mainstream wire services and conventional news channels. We hear vaguely of their collective CV as tourists and nothing of their mission. You can imagine our lack of shock to learn that this was a shipload of global warmists, led by none other than Chris Turney, a professor (high priest?) of “climate change” at the University of South Wales. According to Turney’s personal website, the purpose of the expedition is to “discover and communicate the environmental changes taking place in the south.” More here.
