Frozen Out: 98% of Stories Ignore That Ice-bound Ship Was On Global Warming Mission

A group of climate change scientists were rescued by helicopter Jan. 2, after being stranded in the ice since Christmas morning. But the majority of the broadcast networks’ reports about the ice-locked climate researchers never mentioned climate change.

The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.

Summer time in the southern hemisphere. Ice is growing. We are supposed to believe in Global Warming.

That is why you have to buy gasoline blends dictated by Obama's EPA.

That is why you have to stop using cheap incandescent bulbs.

That is why we have wasted millions of taxpayer dollars on idiotic wasted companies like Solyndra.

got fascism?

And, now reports bearing true that, against Captain’s orders, the sightseers delayed a return to the ship that probably at least factored into, if not caused, the ship being ice-locked.

Reporting on the "Ship Of Fools" destroys the "global warming" narrative that the liberal media wishes to maintain for their brain-dead followers. So of course they are going to do all they can to bury this story that is causing so much mirth for those who actually think for themselves.

Global warming "scientists" stuck in ice during the middle of Antarctic summer! Icebreakers getting themselves stuck trying to rescue them! The mainstream media can't have those images out there!

The funny thing is that 70 million Americans are currently buried under one of the coldest snowstorms in memory in the Northeast and Midwest and over the weekend we are going to see some playoff football in zero degree weather. There's nothing the mainstream media can do to to contain that.

The first stories said the passengers were all tourists. Then it was said they were tourists and scientists.

Real journalism is all but dead.

In LibWorld, truth is whatever serves the Party. Noting that it was a global warming mission doesn’t serve the Party.

(The other rule in LibWorld, BTW, is that if you repeat something often enough, it becomes true.)

The Aurora Australis itself was stuck in the ice, back in November, 2013. The story does not say how they got un-stuck.

Strangely, CNN is one that is reporting their research.

--------

Turney's expedition to gauge the effects of climate change on the region began on November 27.

The second and current leg of the trip started on December 8 and was scheduled to conclude with a return to New Zealand on Saturday.

The vessel got stuck in the ice 15 days after setting out on the second leg.

Turney, a climate change professor at the University of New South Wales, has said the ship was surrounded by ice up to nearly 10 feet (3 meters) thick.
