Coldest winter since the 1980s traps ships

It's bloody cold in northern Europe:

The Baltic Sea was dotted with around 50 ships stuck in the ice on Thursday, including one large passenger ferry carrying around than 1,000 people. Many will remain where they are until Friday, Swedish maritime authorities said.

Sweden has suffered an unusually harsh winter this year, with temperatures across the country almost continuously well below freezing since December.

I blame global warming climate change.
