I’ve been rather remiss in covering this hilarious story. Anthony Watts notes that it is best summed up by this Tweet
The BBC writes
A third attempt to rescue a ship stranded off East Antarctica since Tuesday has failed because of fierce winds and poor visibility.
An Australian icebreaker trying to reach the Russian scientific mission ship was forced to turn back.
Earlier attempts by Chinese and French icebreakers to reach the Russian ship Akademik Shokalskiy were also foiled by the thick ice.
They’re getting nailed with snow, heavy winds, and heavy, heavy ice. Which stopped any probability of rescue by helicopter. Cute how these Warmists who hate fossil fuels take a trip to the Antarctic to show just how horrible fossil fueled climate change is, then need rescue from their fossil fueled trip by other fossil fueled ships and helicopters, which still can’t rescue them.

I guess all that CO2 is getting in their eyes. CNN
The expedition to gauge the effects of climate change on the region began on November 27. The second and current leg of the trip started on December 8 and was scheduled to conclude with a return to New Zealand on January 4.
This ship full of activists is actually blaming the increased sea ice in Antarctica on “climate change”.
