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.

So when is Fox going to take 100 deniers for weeks of experiments in Antarctica....hmmmm.... and do some REAL experiments, rather than make up stuff.... I'm sure some billionaires would like to send them down there.... (grin)

Those expeditions can be deadly serious....for the scientists, Yet all Faux and its cohorts proved is how juvenile and stupid they really are....

Actually the biggest joke was not the scientists getting trapped in the ice.... but the ridiculous excuse for coverage from Faux and the RWNJs..

A big part of the expedition was to replicate some of the same experiments and observations done by Shackleton and Mawson a century ago.... so they could compare the results... as well as get more precise readings with the newer equipment and methodology...

Please note that faux was so interested in their prejudice... they avoided the facts...

The winds around Antarctica affect Australia and New Zealand..... and that is having a dramatic impact.... including hotter weather and droughts...

The expedition leader explained....

"The Southern Hemisphere westerly winds encircle Antarctica, and over the last 20 or 30 years or so, they've been pushing further south. Now - so actually in a way it's almost like Antarctica's withdrawing itself from the rest of the world."

and.....

"So the result is that during the wintertime when we see this delivery of moisture into Australia - southern Australia, New Zealand, that's going to become less and less common. That's the implication of our observation."

AND....

"There's so much out there that we just don't understand and you can only do so much of computer models, you can only do so much of satellites. You have to get on the ground, we have to drop floats into the ocean, we have to drop - drill through the ice, we have to collect samples, drill the trees in the sub-Antarctic islands, see how the actual ecology is responding to changes and then pull it all together."

Gee sammy...given Faux long history of idiocy, lying and contorting any facts they stumble upon ..... this story is a perfect example of lack of professionalism.

Sadly, the faux reporter doesn't have a base of knowledge about Antarctica... so just insinuates...

Will those dummies who scoffed because FOX news reported this story please explain the relevance of their absurd insinuation? (riggers711 Message Posted: Jan 2, 2014 5:27:41 AM; c0wb0y Message Posted: Jan 2, 2014 9:44:20 AM; dwbuddy Message Posted: Jan 2, 2014 10:07:11 AM; et al.)

This is a good example of how leftists deny the truth even when it is right under their nose. They hold to their mantra despite a mountain of facts that prove them wrong. The leader of this expedition should be the poster child for the foolishness of the "global warming" agenda.

"WOW, so many ignore what happened to them and how they got stuck."...

But the ice was still too thick for 3 other ships to break through (MILES away)...this can't be spun in a way to keep the lefties from looking like knuckleheads.

I am another one of the global warming skeptics. The scientists insists "polar ice is melting" and that "iceberg that broke apart three years ago." Yea right! Dumb scientists, I say.

WOW, so many ignore what happened to them and how they got stuck. The ocean did not freeze around the ship. There was a storm that blew sea ice in around the ship. The sea ice then froze together, trapping them there. There have been several storms since they were first trapped. Pushing more and more ice around them. If the ocean water just froze around them, this story may have made a valid point.
