    Arctic sea ice traps ice breaker

    An icebreaker with a heated indoor swimming pool, exercise room and sauna has been trapped by thick ice. The touring arctic icebreaker was held up on the arctic ice sheet after trying to force its way through the Northwest Passage. The passage is, according to environmentalists, almost ice-free these days and getting worse. It seems the irony of a polar expedition to see such things as record sea ice loss being stopped cold by the very ice that doesn’t exist.
