Arctic expedition cancelled due to ‘too much ice’ and blames ‘climate change’

The Science Team of the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has cancelled the first leg of the 2017 Expedition due to “too much ice” and blames climate change, hinting at global warming.

The University of Manitoba’s UN Today notes that “This regrettably postpones the much-anticipated Hudson Bay System Study (BaySys) involving 40 scientists from five universities across Canada. Timing was key for this $17 million, four-year, University of Manitoba-led project.”

“Considering the severe ice conditions and the increasing demand for Search And Rescue operations (SAR) and ice escort, we decided to cancel the BaySys mission. A second week of delay meant our research objectives just could not be safely achieved – the challenge for us all was that the marine ice hazards were exceedingly difficult for the maritime industry, the CCG, and science,” says Dr. David Barber, Expedition Chief Scientist and BaySys Scientific Lead.

“Climate-related changes in Arctic sea ice not only reduce its extent and thickness but also increase its mobility meaning that ice conditions are likely to become more variable and severe conditions such as these will occur more often.”

This sounds like the theme from the film The Day After Tomorrow as global warming is blamed for the increase in ice: “Dr. Barber and his team of experts were able to use the state-of-the-art equipment onboard the Amundsen to confirm that a significant proportion of the sea ice present originated from the high Arctic.”

The article states that “The research of our scientists clearly indicate that climate change is not something that is going to happen in the future – it is already here.”

More ice is the result of increased global warming, got that?

    What you want for Arctic travel is snow covering a firm layer of ice. If you warm up, the snow melts, exposing the ice, which can only be traversed by walking with crampons, as opposed to a pleasant ride on a snowmobile.
