Global Warming Scientists Forced to Admit Defeat...

The Daily Mail reports:

Chris Turney, a climate scientist and leader of the expedition, was going to document 'environmental changes' at the pole. n an interview he said he expected melting ice to play a part in expedition.

They went in search evidence of the world’s melting ice caps, but instead a team of climate scientists have been forced to abandon their mission … because the Antarctic ice is thicker than usual at this time of year.

The scientists have been stuck aboard the stricken MV Akademik Schokalskiy since Christmas Day, with repeated sea rescue attempts being abandoned as icebreaking ships failed to reach them.
Now that effort has been ditched, with experts admitting the ice is just too thick. Instead the crew have built an icy helipad, with plans afoot to rescue the 74-strong team by helicopter[...]

Australian icebreaker Aurora Australis was unable to reach them because it was not strong enough to break through.
A top-of-the-range Chinese icebreaker, the Snow Dragon ('Xue Long'), was deployed earlier in the week, and hoped to reach the ship by saturday.
However just after midnight on Friday it too got stuck just six nautical miles from the ship

Here's video from when there was still hope the Chinese ice breaker would be able to make to the ship for a rescue.


  1. Ha Ha!

    But I'm waiting for the climaniancs to say "that doesn't mean anything! All the scientists say...."

  2. Wouldn’t it be ironic if, in order to prevent the necessity of resorting to cannibalism they had to kill and eat polar bear?

    1. Sorry brother, wrong pole. Penguin maybe.

    2. "what, no crow?"

      Nah. The Idiot Left is too fucking arrogant and weak minded to admit that.

  3. Classic. I was feeling depressed until I read this incredibly true story. What happens when you have presuppositions that are not valid in science. Or, maybe it's when you mix religion and science. Either way, all conservatives and libertarians can do is sit back and watch stupid take its course. And, laugh...real hard.


  4. OhNo the po po Globull Warmist....I just cannot get enough of this hilarity! Unfortunately this stupid BBC/Guardian lark is financed via sweet Aussie taxpayer thievery. Hope they freeze to death.

  5. Admit defeat? No way! That's like Buffet giving back a railroad subsidy. They'll pursue and preach about anthropogenic global warming until they've absconded with the last dollar of government funding. Then it'll be off to a new fabricated looming disaster and the idiot public will not be the wiser. Crony leftism is the name of the game these days for making money off of taxpayers. Just put the word "green" or say you support all the nutty ideas of the left and you'll be showered with taxpayer money.
