Actual News Report: ‘Climate-change deniers making hay of the fact that a group of researchers devoted to tracking global warming would get stuck in ice they claim is melting’

It’s bad enough the media has largely ignored the reason why these climate clowns were stuck in the Antarctic ice. Now an actual news story sneers at “climate change deniers” making fun of these morons.

But the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, which sought to retrace the steps famous Australian Antarctic geologist Douglas Mawson tread 100 years ago to see how the landscape had changed, was also mocked by climate-change deniers making hay of the fact that a group of researchers devoted to tracking global warming would get stuck in ice they claim is melting.

“Somewhere far, far to the south where it is summer, a group of global warming scientists are trapped in the Antarctic ice,” PJ Gladnick of NewsBusters wrote. “If you missed the irony of that situation, it is because much of the mainstream media has glossed over that rather inconvenient bit of hilarity.”

The least they could do is actually link the Newsbusters piece.

“We’re stuck in our own experiment,” the expedition team said in a statement to FoxNews.com. “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.”

Sadly, these buffoons were rescued today. Their idiocy will be missed. Yet they’ll become celebrities as the media continues to ignore their utter failure and humiliation.

    I have heard that the helicopter from the Chinese icebreaker ferried them to an Australian icebreaker further away.
    Call me a cynic or a skeptic if you wish but, is that because the Chinese ship is stuck too?
    Last I heard, it hadn’t moved in days!
    That would be like a double whammy of schadenfreude! ;-)

    The media is against them? Your kidding right? The media is 100% behind this scam. FOX NEWS gave 4 times as much money to John Kerry as they did to Bush.

    “We came to Antarctica to study how one of the biggest icebergs in the world has altered the system by trapping ice.”

    First time I have heard that objective. Previously I had heard they were there to study the thinning ice sheet, but perhaps that objective is no longer operative.

    And what the “news” fails to tell it’s audience is that it’s SUMMER TIME down under. Shouldn’t there be melting ice during the summer?

    These climate-change folks have used this “massive ice sheets” argument several times, in both the Arctic and Antarctic regions. These huge, break-away sheets of ice are pointed to as evidence of global warming.

    But they never seem to ask ‘how did such massive ice sheets form in the first place?” To have formed such huge ice sheets, the ice must have been more rigid than historically observed. How do you make ice more rigid? Simple – you make it thicker.

    Could these ice sheets have even formed in a warming climate?
