You can't make it up XXXXV - the "Clitanic" disaster (28 dec 13)

Journalists and 'scientists' got stuck in Antarctica because they thought global warming would melt the ice

Now various other vessels are stuck trying to rescue them (update Jan 5)

The British and Australian governments and the Guardian paid for a Russian ship to sail to Antarctica:

"But there's ominous signs of climate change..." "...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…"

This year, it hasn't withdrawn as much as they expected
