- A Russian tanker delivering fuel to the Alaskan town of Nome, cut off by ice and extreme weather, has reached the western coastline of Alaska.
The vessel, carrying more than 1.3 million gallons (4.9 million litres) of fuel, was moving in the wake of a US Coast Guard icebreaker.
On that note, how many media stories mention the total tonnage of Earth's atmosphere when telling us how many tons of pollutants humans are putting into the atmosphere? None?
The "ice-bound Nome" story is an excellent job of manufacturing a crisis. My hat is off to the media.
