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?
