It looks as though a miracle of nature has set free, at least for now, the pod of killer whales trapped in the ice in Hudson Bay, though we won't know their ultimate fate until they are spotted again.

Nature saved them but not before the plight of the arctic was made known by countless TV and other stories on these poor whales. That's a positive from what looked to be a very bad situation.
