So We Need What, Now?

It's nice to see money-saving joint programs like this:

The U.S. and Canadian governments on Feb. 7 established a partnership that will enable the U.S. Coast Guard heavy polar icebreaker acquisition program to test and validate potential heavy polar icebreaker design models at Canada’s National Research Council (NRC) in St John’s, Newfoundland, the Coast Guard said in a Feb. 9 release.

Wait, what? A new heavy icebreaker?

I was under the impression that the polar ice would disappear under the onslaught of global warming.

Never mind.
