10 Feet Thick Ice Stops Icebreaker in Antarctic

The Russian ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy has been stuck in the Antarctic Ice since Monday. The Chinese Ice BreakerĀ  Xue Long, or Snow Dragon got within six miles and it too was stopped by thick ice.

“It got stuck in the ice on Monday night — 15 days after setting out on the second leg of its research trip.

According to Turney, the ship was surrounded by ice up to nearly 10 feet (3 meters) thick. It was about 100 nautical miles east of the French base Dumont D’Urville, about 1,500 nautical miles south of Hobart, Tasmania.

The Russian expedition ship is carrying scientists and passengers led by an Australian climate change professor.”

I find it ironic the “climate change professor” led the ship and passengers into 10 foot thick ice. He’s kind of thick. But maybe 10 feet thick ice in the summer is unusual?





  1. Less CO2 and less Ice in 1913, more CO2 and more Ice in 2013. Kind of goes against their CAGW theory doesn’t it.

  2. Well, any reasoning person knows that CO2 is not behind any global warming that the earth is experiencing. Oceans warm through natural processes, and CO2 is released. It’s pretty simple really.

  3. So much for his AGW propaganda tour.

    More like a face plant tour for Mr. CarbonScapes.
