A group of Global Warming Cultists, including an Australian Green Party Senator, Janet Rice, and Chris Turney, a professor of climate change at Australia’s University of New South Wales, have gotten themselves stuck in a bit of ice in the Antarctic. In an effort to document how bad things have become due to CO2 induced climate change they attempted to recreate the trek of an actual scientist, Sir Douglas Mawson, who was one of the first to explore the South Pole. They intended to show just how different the climate is now that all of the ice has melted in the Antarctic as compared to when the original exploration was undertaken by following the same route.
Here they are inspecting the damage that global warming has caused to their ship.
Unfortunately, it appears that the Climate Gods they worship were not amused and decided to accept their vessel as an offering in atonement for their hubris.
Two Ice-breakers have failed to reach the stranded ship due to the ice being too thick for, you know, frickin’ ice-breakers, and the cultists are now no doubt pooling their resources to see if they have enough carbon credits available to allow for their rescue via a CO2 belching, fossil fueled helicopter.
In a statement given to Fox News that is at least as unintentionally droll as anything Monty Python ever produced, Chris Turney maintained that 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. And he remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas.”
He also stated that the the ship was not dead in the water and was merely “pining for the fjords.” At least he might as well have said that since it would possess the same amount of comedic value (and truth) as his actual quote.
