Scientists are struggling to stage expeditions to the South Pole because Antarctica’s sea ice has been growing rapidly and hit record high levels.
The UK Guardian reports 50 scientists have gathered in Tasmania to discuss more accurate ways to predict Antarctic sea ice levels so researchers don’t get stuck in ice pack when traveling southward.
It's all the fault of Globular Warmering/Climate Change, of course. Which led to this observation over at Book of Face:
Expeditions might be able to make it to McMurdo by having icebreakers exploit Bush's Fault lines in the ice pack.
