  1. Bernd Palmer says:

    They can wait until the ice melts. Sending an ice breaker increases their CO2 footprint even more. Let’s get the priorities right: We must save the world from global warming, not a crew of inept, foolish salors from freezing cold.

  2. Andy Oz says:

    Why would they need rescuing and what from? The sea ice is non-existent!
    They just wanted to get on the front page with some bullshit story.

  3. gator69 says:

    What? Trapped by a few extra ice cubes? 😉

    • Jimbo says:

      When they get back (if ;)) they will claim that crumbling ice surrounded their ship and locked them in. They will blame Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming. Ice is like that.

  4. Baa Humbug says:

    Because of these richard craniums, three other ships were ordered to their rescue including an Australian ice breaker that was unloading vital supplies at Mawson Base but had to up stumps and head off to the rescue.
    If the ice breaker can’t get back to base in time, numerous scientific experiments will be canned.

    I would have said “f#$k the tourists, let ’em tough it out, the ice will melt soon enough.

  5. R2Dtoo says:

    Its time to make these folks pay for their foolishness. The costs must be staggering. How much did all the rescues last summer cost? Now this. Greenpeace won’t be testing Russia again soon, because they had to pay!

    • Jimbo says:

      Ahhh yes, the NW passage finders. They found the route and stayed on the route. All caused by catastrophic Arctic amplification sea ice growth on 2012. Climate change is a very funny thing indeed. I just hope that non of these gullible fools loses their lives. We can laugh but let’s hope they call come back home safely for more ridicule.

    It’s that missing heat that’s lurking at the bottom of the ocean, and it must have taken surface heat on the way down. Thus the surface dihydrogen monoxide has been caused to freeze – so it’s global warming really, anthropogenic of course!

    Yet another reason for us all to reduce our carbon footprints!

    This is worth studying further. Give more funding ….. Give generously!

  7. A C Osborn says:

    The Al Gore affect strikes again.
    Of course the Ice Breaker will break the Ice to assist it’s melting, but that is never considered by the warmists, especially in the Arctic where there a lot of them.

  8. Louis Hooffstetter says:

    Oh Sweet Irony, How Thou Dost Tease Me!

    This rescue has got to cost a fortune. Send the bill to The Guardian.

  9. Stephen Richards says:

    I thought the grauniad said it was all rotten ice, couldn’t stop a row boat.

  10. Gamecock says:

    This is news because two Guardian journalists are aboard. The world doesn’t need to know; the world doesn’t care.

    • Jimbo says:

      The fact that there are 2 Guardian journalists aboard says a lot. They actually believe the horse shit they have been told. They are learning a bitter, cold, hard lesson about climate change………………..it changes.

    • Gamecock says:

      I’d be pissed if I paid 8 grand to get stuck in the ice with a bunch of no-name celebrities.
      I think Shokalskiy is Aborigine for Costa Concordia.

      “There are single, twin and double berths are available. Prices start from $8,050.”

  11. glenncz says:

    I just saw this news on The Weather Channel, funny how they forget to mention that we have record ice down there. I am sure the passengers can wile away the time listening to lectures from scientists explaining how all the ice is disappearing.

  12. Jimmy Haigh. says:

    They could solve this problem easily. All they’d have to do is to fit one of Reggie’s blowtorches to the front of the boat.

    • Jimbo says:

      Where is Reggie? He seemed so confident a few months back. Mocking and harranging sceptics about sea ice. Where is his confidence now? You bloody naive fool. Told ya so.

  13. Kent Clizbe says:

    Alok’s eyes must be wide with wonder. All the cold and ice are surely triggering massive cognitive dissonance in this fanatic AGW proselytizer’s soul.

    Here’s something Alok wrote back in 2007 about AGW prepping to wipe out the Earth’s species:

    Published on Wednesday, October 24, 2007 by The Guardian/UK
    Warming Could Wipe Out Half of All Species
    by Alok Jha

    Rising global temperatures caused by climate change could trigger a huge extinction of plants and animals, according to a study. Though humans would probably survive such an event, half of the world’s species could be wiped out.

  14. Photo here of the 1913 expedition. Not much sea ice there.

  15. Justa Joe says:

    Gaia, Why hath thou forsaken your earnest saviors?

    BTW, Everybody is going to have to reduce their carbon footprint that much more to compensate for all of these unnecessary ship voyages and rescue missions consuming untold tonnage of diesel fuel. These guys have one of those AlGore unlimited CO2 emission exemptions.

  16. In the original Mawson expedition in 1913, the explorers were stranded all winter in a wooden hut.

    Perhaps this lot ought to try the same!

  17. Colorado Wellington says:

    Shackleton they are not.

  18. phodges says:

    Well not a word about Climate Change in the articles…minor miracle?

    They do talk about winter and winter storms…do they not realize it is summer in Antarctica??

    • Gamecock says:

      Extra research . . . my big ol’ hairy bu++! This is a celebrity cruise, and nothing more.

      “used the temporary pause in their month-long expedition to carry out extra research projects into the state of ice and water around the frozen continent.”

      The state of the ice is solid; the state of the water is liquid. Extra research, indeed.

    • Gamecock says:

      ‘”I think we’re probably looking at another 24 hours of twiddling our fingers and waiting for something to happen,” said Stone, the expedition spokesman.’

      Dayahmuh! Just yesterday they were using the “unexpected pause for extra research” !!!

      My, how the Guardian lies.

  19. Ian George says:

    Saw a passenger on that boat saying that there was less sea ice around in Mawson’s expedition than now. Whoops! Wonder how that got past the censors?

  20. Jimbo says:

    This is what happens when you believe your own bullshit.

  21. gnomish says:

    Rotten ice!

  22. gregole says:

    So a batch of CAGW publicity whores is stuck in the Antarctic ice. Time to point and laugh!

    How do these preposterous boondoggles get approved? I’m sure these fools aren’t paying for this enormous waste of money and resource with their own funds – too bad; but someone is…

  23. Gamecock says:

    “A Chinese icebreaker boat trying to eat through a dense ice block in Antarctica to rescue 74 people trapped on a ship since Christmas Day has had to halt efforts because the ice is too thick.”

    Has cannibalism broken out yet?
