Trawler caught by Antarctic warming

I was amused to read that a British trawler was trapped in Antarctic waters by ice floes rampant with global warming, and rescued only by the heroic efforts of the USAF.

The Argos Georgia, a British fishing trawler, has been stuck since Christmas Eve amid floes near the Ross Ice Shelf deep below the Antarctic Circle.

Damn those warming ice floes.  Tim Blair summarises more warming news:

• All of Florida frozen;

• Extreme cold alert for Toronto;

• Washington man killed by four feet of warming;

• And record snow in New Hampshire...
