Summer Fun in the Southern Ocean
More of a journalism junket than a scientific expedition, this Russian ship full of alarmist AGW true believers is stuck in the well above average sea ice around the cold Antarctic continent. The reason we even care about this ship is that it's summer in the Southern Sea, nearly first of July to us, and these guys, looking for proof of polar amplification of global warming, have found just the opposite. It's colder and there is ever more sea ice. That is exactly what the true believers in the mid 80s promised us would not happen.
Their would-be rescuers are very close and there is little danger of any tragedy so it is safe to let the schadenfreude brim over.
The more they try to explain away the higher than average sea ice, the sillier they sound.
