    Of course, now the screen is covered with tears from laughing so hard after reading your post.

    I think I read that they tried to have some sort of special ice busting ship get to them and even that couldn't get through.

    The wind did it. I guess that just about settles it. You don't need a weather man to tell which way the wind blows.

    I'm not talented enough to paint the Joker on Al Gore but will this do?

    The rescue ships from China and the Aussie ship were both icebreakers.

    The Aussie ship could break ice up to 1 meter thick (!!!!!), but the ice there was thicker than that, so they had to steer back to open water.

    Here's a picture of the global warming activists who were convinced they would find proof of thin melting ice.



    They were all rescued but the 22 crew members remained. I wonder for how long? There will have to be numerous missions for supplies alone I can't even begin to guess how much money this little escapade is going to end up costing. Will it be the people of Australia that pays? Someone is going to have to.
