27 May 08 – “Cashing in on the panic that has set in with the help of some climate alarmists, tour operators like Quark Expeditions of Norwalk Connecticut are offering polar expeditions catering to that “see it before it’s gone” travel worry. One of them is a trip though the Northwest Passage on a former Soviet Icebreaker called the Kapitan Khlebnikov, a massive 24,000 horsepower Polar Class icebreaker capable of carrying 108 passengers in relative luxury through the arctic wilderness.

Unfortunately, the Kapitan Khlebnikov got stuck in the ice.

One of the passengers wrote: ‘What irony. I am a passenger on one of the most powerful icebreakers in the world, travelling through the Northwest Passage - which is supposed to become almost ice-free in a time of global warming, the next shipping route across the top of the world - and here we are, stuck in the ice, engines shut down, bridge deserted. Only time and tide can free us.’

“What irony indeed.

“On the seventh day of being trapped in the ice, winds and tide moved the ice pack enough that they could continue.”
