Record Antarctic Ice May Force Australian Base to Relocate

Watts Up With That notes an article from The Australian, which reports:
Satellite observations show a new daily record being set for ­Antarctic sea ice every day for the past two weeks. Annual records have also been broken every year for the past three years.

Rob Wooding, general manager of the Australian Antarctic Division’s Operations Branch, said expanding sea ice was now causing serious problems.

Last year, fuel supplies were flown to Australia’s Mawson base by helicopter because the harbour had failed to clear. Dr Wooding said the situation was “unsustainable”.
Apparently they didn't get the memo that Antarctic sea ice was melting at an alarming rate.
