More than 50 ships, including large ferries reportedly carrying thousands of passengers, were stuck in ice in the Baltic Sea Thursday evening, and many were not likely to be freed for hours, Swedish maritime authorities said.

Obviously the warmness caused more humidity which caused more ice to form, therefore, it is definitely caused by Global Warming.

What's that you ask? Why did it then get cold enough to freeze the ice?

Well silly it always gets cold and freezes stuff in the winter in the northern hemisphere.

Please remind me why global warming is a bad thing.

Please ask Gore why this is happening?

Please ask 0bambi why we should pay to stop the Baltic sea from freezing (I don’t give a rats butt about the Baltic sea).

Just asking.....

Someone believed Ol'Bore. The largest Swedish ice-breaker (ODEN) is on a scientific expedition to Antarctica!!

Several ferries are stuck in the ice but so no danger to the passengers (so far). Smaller ice-breakers are on their way:

Bloody AGW!! We've had snow, ice and sub-zero degrees since mid-December. This month of January was the first January in Stockholm since 1829 (eighteen-) without a single day with temperatures above 0°C.

1829 - that was the year Andrew Jackson was inaugurated. Seems like yesterday. :-)

PS: Al Gore visited Oslo (in Norway, but not that far from Stockholm) today. Gave a lecture on AGW and on the campaign trying to discredit the "AGW science".

Same thing happened during the Copenahagen meeting. These guys are fantastic. Wherever they turn up it starts to snow and the temps drop. As long as they are around no need to fear global warming.

Sailing out of St. Petersburg, the Gulf of Finland (easternmost section of the Baltic) was like a giant parking lot. Could see 30-80 ships at a time, for many miles.

If Al Gore goes up there to help out, maybe they will have a large fairy stuck in the ice as well :)

Sounds like the Baltic was hit by the same Global Warming Front that hit D.C. a few weeks ago.

I always get a chuckle out of that one. Global Warming is responsible for both the hot air that evaporates water and increases humidity and the cold air that precipitates snow and forms ice—simultaneously.

I have been on those ferries from Helsinki and Stockholm to Hamburg. Lots of duty free alcohol to drink while waiting to be freed from the ice. Some Finns will fall overboard as usual.

it’s all “climate change” now —— any variation, whether cold or warm, can fit the “Albore’s World Is Ending” scenario

please get with the program and don’t imagine that record colds mean anything except the “confirmation” of the IPCC reports and “An Inconvenient Truth”

and if the polar bear population starts expanding to Stockholm, don’t imagine that Big Al will lose any time in explaining how that fits his “theory”

That would be a great way to heckle him. Everytime he talks about global warming just laugh in the audience. Have several people seated throughout the place.

Start with small chuckles then as he keeps on talking have the laughter build up until it’s uncontrollable and you are asked to leave. Have several people do this so that they keep getting asked to leave throughout the snake oil sales pitch.

Now you know why Sweden breeds tall, buxom, beautiful blond women - to keep men warm in these kind of winters.

Once dated such a woman (of Swedish heritage). She kept me warm even in summers. Gave new meaning to a “warm front” moving in.

Ah, to be young again. Hell, I’d settle for middle age again. I think I remember what it was.

It is not theory. It is settled science. The debate is over. Get over it and start buying your carbon credits.

As we always say in these instances, God does have a sense of humor. He loves making algore & Co. look like the idiotic loons they are.

you really don’t get it. Obama solved world peace just by thinking about it (the nobel peace prize). He has also solved global warming by just thinking about it. the world is getting colder. Give him an award for that too! Maybe he will receive two nobel awards!!!!

Exactly. The filth bags always come up with some clever excuse to make it appear they are in the right.

That’s right. “Climate Change.” Even a slightly warmer winter or cooler summer will have them wagging a finger at you saying, “It’s your fault!” And with the other hand out saying, “Therefore, gimme money!”
