Kit Fister: fusillade762: In before HURR WHAT GLOBAL WARMING? DURRR.*facepalm*I'm not a scientist, but considering that the thermal retention properties and range of temps are dependent upon chemical composition, then the more we change the chemical composition of our atmosphere, the greater the atmosphere is prone to greater swings in temperatures, with a higher average heat retention level, which only leads to much more variation in weather.So, basically, the more we fark with our atmosphere, the more chances we have to create the conditions necessary for more severe weather.Sadly, life on this planet exists in very delicate balance, and the more we fark with said balance, the more damage we do until eventually we create a cascade effect which leaves us farked.But what do I know, I'm not a scientist. I just prefer to live on a planet with as little in the way of chemical byproducts and artificially created hormones and crap going into the environment.
lifeboat: crab66: So who do we call if this one gets stuck?That old girl can break up to 21 feet of ice. She ain't getting stuck.
Pointy Tail of Satan: Then come the Chinese Needle snakes!
calbert: except there is no "Australian icebreaker" involved in this story.but hey, nice reading comprehension, subby.
crab66: I was just doing some searching and the Chinese ship there is actually a bit bigger than the Polar Star. I assume this new ship would have to be better designed/equipped to break more ice with less tonnage.

andynz81: calbert: except there is no "Australian icebreaker" involved in this story.but hey, nice reading comprehension, subby.Not in this particular article, but an Australian icebreaker was involved. It was unable to free the Russian ship, but the passengers from the Russian ship were ferried to the Australian icebreaker (by a helicopter from the Chinese icebreaker, no less) to take them home./not subby
