Antarctic ice blocks ice breaker sent to rescue climate researchers trapped in… ice
The saga continues. Climate change has done a nasty deed to researchers going to the antarctic to research the melting, never-to-be-seen again ice shelf. On their way, they get stuck in … drum roll please … ice! Lots of ice. The boat is stuck and cannot unstuck itself.
Not to worry, man has the right tool to conquer nature … in this case ICE, and sends an ice breaker to the rescue. And what could be a joke by mother nature on man’s genius, the ice breaker gets stuck and cannot break it’s way through the thick ice. Now it is stuck.
To the rescue … a French ice breaker. Ha ha. Well, maybe it is a display of intelligence but the French turn around deciding it is too difficult a task and they would only get stuck if they proceeded with the rescue plan. Sort of reminds me of the joke about the French WWII rifle that was for sale … “never been fired – dropped only once!” Well, let’s chalk that one up to retreat and live to fight another day is the better part of valor. We don’t want to make a total joke of the Global Warming community by having three ships stuck in ice, now would we?
Wouldn’t we? Are you serious? Are you frick’in kidding me?
