Frozen Out: 98% of Stories Ignore That Ice-bound Ship Was On Global Warming Mission

By Mike Ciandella | January 2, 2014

A group of climate change scientists were rescued by helicopter  Jan. 2, after being stranded in the ice since Christmas morning. But the  majority of the broadcast networks’ reports about the ice-locked climate  researchers never mentioned climate change.

The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice  while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network  news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at  all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening  news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do  with the expedition.

In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of  climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as “passengers,” “trackers” and even “tourists,” without a word about climate  change or global warming.

Chris Turney, the expedition’s leader, is a professor  of climate change at the University of South Wales. According to  Turney’s personal website, the  purpose of the  expedition is to “discover and communicate the environmental changes  taking place in the south.”

Twenty-two crew members stayed with the ship for the time being, as  the scientists and researchers were rescued. According to CNN,  the ship has enough supplies for “a very long time.”

Three rescue attempts had been thwarted by growing levels of sea  ice and weather conditions.

“Outside, blizzard conditions packing an abnormal amount of ice in  to the area for this time of the year, summer in the Antarctic,” ABC News  Correspondent Gio Benitez reported on “Good Morning America” Dec. 31.

On Jan. 2, all 52 passengers were airlifted to a nearby Australian  icebreaker ship which had tried, and failed, to plow through the ice and free  the Akademic Shokalskiy, on Dec. 30. “Good Morning America” said on Dec. 30,  that “the ice could be as thick as 13 feet.”

According to Fox  News, Turney admitted “we’re stuck in our own experiment.” They reported on  Dec. 30, that a statement from the Australasian Antarctic Expedition said, “Sea  ice is disappearing due to climate change, but here ice is building up.”

There was only one news story out of 41 that mentioned climate  change. That was CBS “This Morning” Dec. 30. “Despite being frozen at a  standstill, the team’s research on climate change and Antarctic wildlife is  moving forward,” CBS News Correspondent Don Dahler said. That night, all  three evening news programs still failed to make any mention of the group’s  climate change research.

The MRC’s Business and Media Institute was unable to view a copy  of CBS “Sunday Morning” for Dec. 29, so that broadcast had to be excluded from  the tally.

Before their ship got stuck in ice, the researchers were following  the trail of the explorer Douglas  Mawson, who was stranded in Antarctica for more than a year, beginning in  December 1912, according to the website about the expedition.

Perhaps these sixty one Warmist scientists thought that by going in the middle of summer it would show some natural summertime warming for propaganda purposes to freak out the less informed. It would have been worth the over $million they spent…now it’s going to be billions and on top of that they don’t have much of a story except the rescue from ice story which has pretty much been told. But that won’t stop their very lucrative, in your face lying, Algore rhythms.
