Scientific research team becomes trapped by the very thing they were trying to prove was disappearing. How's that for a bit of paradoxical humor.

Oh, and it's getting colder, not warmer.

First the Russian ship carrying the research team got stuck in the ice, then the Chinese icebreaker that went to it's aid also got stuck in the ice. Now the US are sending one of their icebreakers to help rescue them both.
