Posted on 12/31/2013 5:50:07 PM PST by Vince Ferrer
Early this morning, I received an e-mail message from one of many polar scientists whose important and costly field research in Antarctica has been seriously disrupted by the diversion of icebreakers to try to evacuate the journalists, tourists, crew and scientists on an unessential expedition aboard a chartered Russian ship.

LOL! Yeah, like trying to thaw their thermometers?
NPR reported them as “tourists” trapped in the ice.
I thought it was a team of scientists there to study the melting ice caps.
Oh! The humanity. Real science disrupted, the sheer horror is difficult to imagine. What will the planet do, what can we do? What would Shakleton have done without his iPhone, iTunes, and video streaming? The suffering must be beyond contemplation.
That’s why I have always liked clowns (and Slow Joe) because they can always be counted on to make you laugh at the most unexpected times.
With all the Global Warming it was lucky those morons took winter clothing for the Antarctic summer
Leave it to the NY Times to be unintentionally hilarious while being oblivious to the humor. This is almost satire.
The serious scientists should not have asked to send in the clowns!
This is what really bugs the climate alarmists about this screw up.
The NYT is inhabited by a bunch of really mentally ill mofos.
Insanity is rampant on the left. Must have been too much dope their parents ingested.
So what’s actually happening here. Is the expedition carried on by “contrarians” or what?
The rich spoiled greenie tourists and global warming “scientists” are angling to abscond on the first helicopter flights out. Who will be left will be a Russian maintenance crew (proletarians) that will have to have to wait out the freezing months until they can break out of the ice lock
A three hour tour.
Sometimes I read this stuff that these people do and I can’t believe that they could be sane people. I am sure they would classify themselves as adventurous.
Where did we ever breed this kind of foolishness?
They're a laughing stock as long as this goes on.
Got to be really eating their lunch.
Now there's some speculation that the Chinese icebreaker is also stuck, that's like the cherry on the icing on the cake :)
A three hour tour....
A three hour tour,
The weather started getting rough,
the tiny ship was tossed..
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
the Minnow would be lost, the Minnow would be lost
No, “contrarians” is what the climate change true believers call the skeptics when they’re in a huffy mood, which is more or less always.
The article is basically the Colonel Klinks of the climate movement criticizing their careless peer, who by getting the ship stuck in antarctic ice is playing the Sergeant Shultz role, and is making them look silly in front of the whole world.
Clearly, this story has gained traction for its irony.
Sadly, the spoiled greenie tourist and the global warming “scientists”, live in an alternate reality.
They are “true believers” and there is nothing that they can’t rationalize.
They will get more money so they can fit their presumptions into reality.
At the end of the day.
They hate Mankind.
Tv and Movies ?
I have been laughing about this since I first heard about it, I do believe God is giving us a laugh at the expense of arrogance!
Can you imagine the in-fighting going on over who gets to leave in the first helo ? it will take at least 4 flights to get them all out. I wonder if some of them will go 'rogue' and eliminate some of their competition ?
I think one of them is a 'scientist' of some sort. The rest are there because they wanted to 'be cool'.
Not really. These people don't buy their own clothes. They have 'people' that do it for them. Those people made sure they were equipped properly.
Meanwhile, the Lamestream media is still not reporting on the 20 yachts stuck in the arctic ice as they attempted to traverse the northwest passage, now “opened” by “global warming”.
The normal summer range for coastal Antarctica is 41 to as high as 59 degrees.
This is not a warm summer for Antarctica.
What’s the best source on that story? My understanding is that this was not a formal flotilla or expedition, just random groups of environmentalist goofballs individually buying into the Sierra Club’s nonsense and striking out on their own.
96 Percent of Network Stories Censor Why Ship Is There
Global warming scientists still trapped in the ice Media trying to downplay story
Professor trapped in Antarctic ice trying to get rich off AGW hysteria?
Josh channels the Antarctic boat people
The Antarctic research fiasco would you, could you, in a boat?
Gotta link? I’d love to read about that!
T his seems to be from the end of August: http://www.sail-world.com/Australia/North-West-Passage-blocked-with-ice%E2%80%94yachts-caught/113788
And that was at the end of August! Looking at the list there are people in rowboats, kayaks, and jet skis up there. What a bunch of whack jobs!
If anyone wants to see the winds over Antarctica or anywhere else take a look at this!
I think they're just tourists. That ship runs several trips/year in the area geared for people who are interested in seeing that part of the world in relative comfort.
And now the days are getting shorter and colder. Time to get their sorry butts out of there and not talk about the carbon-footprint all this is having. How Al Gore like of them.
Just search in Bing by "yachts stuck in arctic ice".
You'll find more interesting stories.
When done reading them, switch to search by images.
If you click on an image, a larger one appears, in the lower right, you may have to scroll down to see it, is a link to the website where the picture is.
The one showing the pic of 2012 and 2013 is interesting, as well as the site.
