Record Antarctic ice hampers research scientists

Remember when the polar ice caps were supposed to be melting due to global warming?  That’s why they call it “climate change” now, a meaningless construct that merely affirms what we’ve always known: the Earth’s climate constantly changes.  As for those poor creatures supposedly marooned as the ice melts away around them?  AFP reports: Growing sea ice surrounding Antarctica could prompt scientists to consider relocating research stations on the continent, according to the operations manager of the Australian Antarctic Division. Rob Wooding said that resupplying Australia's Mawson Station -- the longest continuously operated outpost in Antarctica -- relied on access to a bay, a task increasingly complicated by sea ice blocking the way. "We are noticing that the sea ice situation is becoming more difficult," Wooding told a media briefing on Monday ahead of two days of meetings between top Antarctic science and...(Read Full Post)
