And the fishing sucks under global warming

About 100 fishermen have been rescued from drifting ice after it broke away from the coast of Sakhalin in the Russian Far East, but many more remain stranded, a spokesman for local rescuers quoted by RIA Novosti said Monday.

The representative of the local Emergency Situations Ministry said an ice floe with 300 to 500 fishermen was 1.5 km (0.9 miles) away from the northeastern coast of the island.
