Can the media ignore both the global warming nature of the expedition that got itself trapped in Antarctic ice, and 2013′s massive growth of Antarctic ice as well?
UPDATE: U.S.C.G. ice breaker Polar Star, lying Sydney, Australia, to steam to the rescue.
“The request for the Polar Star to assist the beset vessels was made by RCC Australia to the US Coast Guard on 3 January, 2014. The US Coast Guard officially accepted this request and released the Polar Star to RCC Australia for search and rescue tasking at 8.30am on 4 January, 2014.
The Polar Star will leave Sydney today after taking on supplies prior to its voyage to Antarctica.”

Icebound and down, loaded up and stranded
We tried to do what they say can’t be done
We got a long way to go and no way to get there
I’m icebound, just watch ol’ liars run.
Not like Jerry Reed would do it but, hey.
