Of Course ... The Global Warming Nuts are Gone.

NBC News reports:
A Russian research ship and a Chinese icebreaker that were stranded in Antarctica have broken free from heavy ice and no longer need to be rescued by the United States, Australian officials said Wednesday. 
More than 50 scientists, researchers and tourists had to be airlifted from the Russian-owned vessel Akademik Shokalskiy after it became trapped on Dec. 24, 100 nautical miles east of French Antarctic station Dumont d'Urville ....
... “The Akademik Shokalskiy and the Xue Long have broken free from the ice in Antarctica and are no longer in need of assistance,” the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said in a statement Wednesday.
