Climate Change Scientists Trapped In Antarctica - Too Much Ice To Rescue
The Aurora Australis has abandoned its first attempt to cut through the ice surrounding the stranded Akademik Shokalskiy in Antarctica after moving just two nautical miles. About 6am, the Aurora's captain, Murray Doyle, began to manoeuvre the icebreaker through thick wedges of consolidated sea ice. But by 9am [midday Sydney time], the master made the call to turn the ship around and move back into open water. "The ice became too thick for us to penetrate. Some of the floes are up to two metres of ice with a metre of snow on top and very compact.The video at the top is actual footage from one of the icebreakers. So far, at least three icebreaker ships have attempted and failed to reach the scientists. The word "irony" must not be in the leftist vocabulary. (Hat Tip: IHateTheMedia)

No, that is not a joke. His reasoning is that some other ice melted somewhere else and because that melting ice diluted the salinity of the ocean it made more ice form because it freezes at lower temperatures when it is not so salty.
This is the mind of a global warming gravy train rider that cannot ever accept the sky isn't falling other wise his nose will have to leave the trough full of taxpayers money.

A poetic and 'ironic' execution (has my vote) for alot of these betrayers and traitors will be being drowned in a bucket of their own excrement - slowly.
