Climate Change Ice Blamed For Cancellation Of Climate Change Expedition

Climate change researchers cancel expedition because of climate change
Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen diverted from science mission, continues search and rescue work

A team of scientists had to abandon an expedition through Hudson Bay because of hazardous ice conditions off the coast of Newfoundland caused by climate change.

About 40 scientists from five Canadian universities were scheduled to use the icebreaker CCGS Amundsen for the first leg of a 133-day expedition across the Arctic. It’s part of a $17-million, four-year project led by the University of Manitoba that looks at both the effects of climate change as well as public health in remote communities.

Their trip began May 25 in Quebec City, but due to bad ice conditions off the coast of Newfoundland, the icebreaker was diverted from its course to help ferries and fishing boats navigate the Strait of Belle Isle, said David Barber, a climate change scientist at the University of Manitoba and leader of the Hudson Bay expedition called BaySys.

Thick, dense ice had travelled to the area down from the High Arctic, said Barber, which caused unsuspecting boats to become stuck and even take on water.

They had “never seen anything like this.” The seas were supposedly to dangerous from all the ice for icebreakers to brave it. These were “severe ice conditions.” It would “put lives in danger.” And it’s most certainly your fault for refusing to give up your fossil fueled vehicle, taking more than two minutes in the shower, not buying local, and not going buying carbon offsets.

    Arctic sea ice extent is within a stdev of the 1981-2010 mean.
    Arctic temperature is right at the ERA40 1958-2002 mean.

    Therefore, what “climate change” is responsible for is only these researcher’s foolishness.

  2. Jeffery says:

    The seas were supposedly to (sic) dangerous from all the ice for icebreakers to brave it.

    Just another lie from TEACH. That is not what the article said. The icebreaker was diverted to help other ships trapped by the arctic ice that was pushed to Newfoundland.

    Please at least make an effort to get it right.

    Oddly enough, we can read, numbnuts.

    Thick, dense ice had travelled [sic] to the area down from the High Arctic, said Barber, which caused unsuspecting boats to become stuck and even take on water.

    “The requirements for search and rescue trumped the requirements for science,” said Barber. “The search and rescue calls were coming in quite fast and furious.”

    (emphasis added)

    So, yes, the icebreaker was re-routed for rescue work, but said rescue work was needed because of the thick ice. That is, they were re-routed because of a changed climate. Just like Teach said.

    …But jeffy didn’t notice because he was covering his ears yelling “LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!!”
