Oh Brother… Climate Scientist Claims Global Warming Caused Them to Get Stuck in Antarctic Ice
The chief “scientist” of the Antarctic expedition claims that the expanding sea ice that caused them to get stuck for over a week is consistent with man-made global warming.
The crew was rescued yesterday by a gas-powered Chinese helicopter.
The Climate Depot reported:
The leader of the Antarctic global warming expedition that has been mired in thick Antarctic ice for more than a week and is finally facing a helicopter rescue attempt, is claiming that expanding sea ice is consistent with man-made global warming theory.
Chris Turney, a professor of climate change at Australia’s University of New South Wales ([email protected]) “remained adamant that sea ice is melting, even as the boat remained trapped in frozen seas,” according to a Fox News interview.
“Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change, but here ice is building up,” the Australasian Antarctic Expedition said in a statement. Turney explained that “climate change may have prompted the iceberg to shatter and float into the previously open sea where the mostly Australian team finds itself stranded.” “
The ice was swept across to this area by the South-East wind, its pieces creating a knock-on domino effect,” Turney said. “We were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Turney expected to see melting ice.

Antarctica sea ice reached a 30 year record in extent and volume in 2013.
