7 Rescue Operation In the Antarctic

Rescue Operation In the Antarctic

Posted on January 6, 2014 by team


In December 24, 2013 a research ship “Academician Shokalskiy” was blocked in the Antarctic by the iceberg. Some powerful ships came to help it out, but the Chinese and the French icebreakers failed to break the three meters ice as well as “Aurora Australis” that was especially hoped for. Some pictures of the international rescue operation in the Antarctic are inside the post.

    Ship of fools. They went looking for globull warming and got stuck in the ice. This ice is not from an iceberg. 100 years ago this water was ice free. I hope the crew of the vessel remain safe. There is still a danger that the vessel could be crushed by ice. The days are getting shorter now and soon it will be very cold. They may be trapped all winter and this is a great danger.

    Lets not forget they were frozen in during the summer months down there, while doing “research” (trying to prove) man made global warming.
    The over all goal, was the follow in previous foot steps made 100 years ago, and show how much ice had melted since then. But in fact, there is MORE ice. But you would have to do this yearly and average it out, you can’t just do it once and say “oh look, there’s less ice! Global warming!”
    Bunch of idiots. Now, they’re talking about planting trees to offset the “carbon they used”. thousands and thousands of trees would be needed, and they’re STILL not done.
    And yet, these goons still won’t admit that they were wrong and there’s isn’t any real global warming, they think they just got caught at the wrong time. It was SUMMER!!!

    global warming is a fact not a theory. this has nothing to do with it. it’s just an ice breaker that got stuck.

      1. It’s not an icebreaker that got stuck.
      2. Global Warming is out of fashion, it’s now “climate change” since they can’t predict if it is getting warmer or cooler… which of course violates the foundations of the scientific method: make a prediction then experiment to prove or disprove, not predetermine an outcome then try to prove yourself right.
      3. Scandinavians regularly sailed between Greenland and Norther Europe, and grew wheat and raised sheep on Greenland… until the Medieval Warm Period ended. The climate may or may not be changing, that it is the work of humankind and not a natural phenomenon is yet another question.
      4. Even IF humanity is causing the climate to change, who is to say THAT is not natural? Beavers build dams and change the terrain, as part of nature. Who is to say human dams, or factories or roadways are not natural as well? We are animals with the instinct and intelligence to build and create. It is part of our nature. Claiming that man is somehow outside nature and his acts are unnatural is a logical fallacy.

      “There are hidden contradictions in the minds of people who “love Nature” while deploring the “artificialities” with which “Man has spoiled ‘Nature.'” The obvious contradiction lies in their choice of words, which imply that Man and his artifacts are not part of “Nature” — but beavers and their dams are. But the contradictions go deeper than this prima-facie absurdity. In declaring his love for a beaver dam (erected by beavers for beavers’ purposes) and his hatred for dams erected by men (for the purposes of men) the Naturist reveals his hatred for his own race — i.e., his own self-hatred.
      In the case of “Naturists” such self-hatred is understandable; they are such a sorry lot. But hatred is too strong an emotion to feel toward them; pity and contempt are the most they rate.
      As for me, willy-nilly I am a man, not a beaver, and H. sapiens is the only race I have or can have. Fortunately for me, I like being part of a race made up of men and women — it strikes me as a fine arrangement — and perfectly “natural” Believe it or not, there were “Naturists” who opposed the first flight to old Earth’s Moon as being “unnatural” and a “despoiling of Nature.”” — RAH

    these comments are full of idiots with no education relevant to this sbuject arguing when they ahve no knowledge.. morons calling the scientists and researchers goons..

    Also “Scandinavians regularly sailed between Greenland and Norther Europe” that is far away from where this happened… the fact that you even said that shows you have no clue whatsoever.
