Antarctica Updates

Prof. Chris Turney and his merry band of alarmist misfits are due home on January 22

Turney is getting defensive about the whole expedition, but is still tweeting out sappy updates.

There are now allegations that this entire “Spirit of Mawson” expedition was done “on the cheap.

There is a report out from Russian media that the ice breaker Xue Long, who rescued the misfits, and the Akademik Shokalskiy, who transported the misfits, have broken free from the ice.

The latest temperature reading for the South Pole is -7°F. The latest temperature reading for International Falls, Minnesota is -22°F. Maybe Turney’s next expedition will be to America to study the ice?
