The latest news on the sea-ice trapped MV Akademik Shokalskiy global warming research vessel comes from Radio Australia:
An Australian icebreaker has abandoned its attempt to rescue a Russian-flagged ship stuck in sea ice in Antarctica due to adverse weather conditions. […]
‘There could be further attempts if the master feels the weather conditions are OK to do that attempt, to get further into the ice fields.’
According to reports, the Australian ice breaker never got closer than 10 nautical miles to the global warming research vessel, and is now back out in open water 18 miles away, waiting for the weather to improve.
‘It’s blowing an absolute blizzard here, there’s a total white-out, there’s snow blowing everywhere and it’s damn cold outside,’ said expedition member John Black in his latest video message.”
Black also adds:
Expedition spokesman Alvin Stone says the group is not worried about spending New Year’s Eve on the ice.”
Of course not. They have lots of diesel fuel to keep the trapped vessel powered and warm. And who cares if the rescue efforts drag on and on. The taxpayers will simply foot the bill run up by all the foolishness.
The South China Morning Post here writes that a rescue by helicopter was also called off due to bad weather, snow and high winds.
Three hours ago, expedition leader Dr. Chris “Baghdad Al” Turney tweeted as he stood surrounded by miles of thick ice, “It’s so warm, it’s actually raining!” Everyone is just having a marvelous time, he assures.
See all the passengers bathing on deck in the warm sun?
