Summer freeze continues to halt climate expedition in Antarctic

Yesterday we reported that climate scientist and explorer Chris Turney and his crew were stranded in the Antarctic after their ship was completely closed in by the sea ice. Turney explained from his stranded vessel that, “We have come south… [to] see just how much change has happened in 100 years and broadcast that live to the public back home.” I am assuming he was talking about the weather, not the climate.

Good news! Professor Turney reported that somehow Santa was able to locate the stranded crew and paid them a much welcome visit on Christmas. Also, the Chinese ice breaker Snow Dragon has been spotted by Turney’s crew and they expect to be rescued in short order.
