Passenger Ships Stuck in Ice Off Sweden
CNN ^ | March 4, 2010 | Per Nyberg and Claudia Rebaza

Posted on 03/04/2010 1:25:08 PM PST by naturalized

Thirty to 40 ships -- including several passenger ships -- were stuck Thursday in ice off the coast of Sweden, said a spokesman for the Maritime Search and Rescue Center in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The area of the Baltic Sea worst hit by the ice were the waters bounded by mainland Sweden, the Stockholm archipelago and the Finnish island of Aland, said Tommy Gardebring, press officer with the Swedish Maritime Administration.

Several passenger vessels from Viking Line were stuck, he said. One of them had been freed.

"It has been a lot colder than normal in the southern parts of the Baltic sea, but in the north all is normal with normal levels of ice," Gardebring said.

I wonder how many of these are eco-tourists who went to observe the melting polar caps for themselves.

Just wait until the polar bears starving because of the lack of ice walk from shore to ship and start eating passengers.

Dec 15, 2009 Gore: Arctic summer ice ‘gone in five years’

Hmmm ... I’m not sure that “gone” means what Gore thinks it means.

Somebody forgot to tell the ships’ masters that Global Warming has been put on hold.

No worries!
The USS Global Warming can steam northward to assist the stranded people.
In the meantime, I'll burn garbage in my backyard to help.

There are daily, overnight ferries between Turku and Helsinki in Finland and Stockholm, Sweden. I’ve take them many times since 1973. They carry vehicles as well as passengers. The ships are replaced every few years and the replacement is always larger. Silja Lines and Viking are the 2 companies and their ships travel together.

According to Al, all this ice is due to moisture, which is a sign of global warming.

“Passenger Ships Stuck in Ice Off Sweden”

Clearly global warming. I mean, who has ever heard of ice in Sweden?

See, it all depends upon what your definition of “is” is.

How can this be? All the ice has melted. The ship musta hit a struggling, non-swimming, polar bear.

Anyone have any idea why my Gary Larson Polar Bear comic got pulled? Is there a ban on Gary Larson? I’ve posted that same cartoon a few times.
