'Stuck in our own experiment': Leader of trapped team insists polar ice is melting


The leader of a scientific expedition whose ship remains stranded in Antarctic ice says the team, which set out to prove climate change, is "stuck in our own experiment."

But Chris Turney, a professor of climate change at Australia’s University of New South Wales, said it was “silly” to suggest he and 73 others aboard the MV Akademic Shokalskiy were trapped in ice they’d sought to prove had melted. He remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas.


“We were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

- Professor Chris Turney, leader of trapped expedition

"We're stuck in our own experiment," the Australasian Antarctic Expedition said in a statement. We came to Antarctica to study how one of the biggest icebergs in the world has altered the system by trapping ice. We ... are now ourselves trapped by ice surrounding our ship.

Now this is funny on so many levels. For starters, the phrase, "climate change". Why aren't they still calling it "global warming"? I guess it's so that in the end, they can say that they've proved that "climate change" is happening.

Just like all the Dems saying Obamacare is wonderful,
just give it a chance. When they have no idea what's
coming.

It's so cold out there, I actually saw a lawyer with his hand in his own pocket.

Thanks david letterman for the only joke I never forget.

More record lows. We need global cooling so things will warm up.

It's cold enough that I cannot get my house over 60*F. Pretty irritating

There has been record warmth here since November. Incredible. Every day is 15 to 20 degrees above normal, and that is continuing, according to the weather, for at least the next 10 days. Highs in the 70's, lows in the 40's. Only 20% of normal rainfall over the last 12 months, worst year on record.
