"Ice-bound Ship Was On Global Warming Mission"
[True, but even more ironic is the proposed headline. Irony is humorous. The librul, especially the algorean species, cannot stomach humor. As H. L. Mencken said of their Puritan forbears, they are possessed wby a "haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy."]
I had not paid much attention to this story, so, hearing the ship was Russian and haveing been influenced perhaps by having just watched Happy People: A Year in the Taiga (2010), wrongly assumed the ship was in the Arctic, not the Antarctic. What makes the story even more remarkable is that it is it is midsummer down there.
