Akademic Shokalskiy Trapped By Global Warming

About the only thing wrong with this story is that Algore is not on board, from Paul Tilsey, Fox News [1]:

Antarctica_Icebound Akademic Shokalskiy [1]The leader of a scientific expedition whose ship remains stranded in Antarctic ice says the team, which set out to prove climate change, is “stuck in our own experiment.”

But Chris Turney, a professor of climate change at Australia’s University of New South Wales, said it was “silly” to suggest he and 73 others aboard the MV Akademic Shokalskiy were trapped in ice they’d sought to prove had melted. He remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas.

Reax, R.S. McCain [2]:

It probably seemed like an excellent idea: Load a bunch of tourists and journalists aboard a ship for an expedition to Antarctica in December (the height of summer at the South Pole) so they can see for themselves how global warming is melting the ice.

Alas, somebody forgot to tell the ice that “the science is settled”:

“Cute how these Warmists who hate fossil fuels take a trip to the Antarctic to show just how horrible fossil-fueled climate change is, then need rescue from their fossil-fueled trip by other fossil-fueled ships and helicopters, which still can’t rescue them.”

I’ve said it before, and say it again. Start believing only when these idiots start behaving as if their theory were actually true. Nobody who actually believed in anthropogenic global warming would taking a tourist cruise to the Antarctic.
