Global Warming Expedition Stuck in Arctic Sea Because of Too Much Ice

Breitbart – by Warner Todd Huston

An expedition to the North Pole intended to measure the effects of global warming ground to a halt this month when the scientist’s ship got blocked by the ice packs near Murmansk, Russia, reports reveal.

The Polar Ocean Challenge set out on a two-month campaign hoping to prove that the ice at the North Pole was melting. As the expedition’s website explains, the group aimed to show “that the Arctic sea ice coverage shrinks back so far now in the summer months that sea that was permanently locked up now can allow passage through.”  

Twitter/@JayWeber3Despite their best intentions to show that the ice is melting and the temperature at the pole is higher than normal, the group has only been confronted with the exact opposite as ice continues to block their path.

The website Real Climate Science notes that the Polar melt season is half over, but temperatures have not climbed high enough to sponsor a large melt off of ice. According to the site, there has not been a big melt, and ice gains seem to be very close to the amount of ice lost because temperatures near the pole have been persistently below normal this year. And at the very least, large ice floes have blocked the ocean passages around the area.

The global warming expedition expected to be able to sail all around the Arctic Ocean through the Northeast and Northwest Passages because they assumed the ice would be gone, but they have been stymied because ice blocks most of the route they planned to take.

  1. Hahahahahahaahhahahaa!!! Too bad they are not popsickles and save everyone the time of hearing them whine about global warming! Make some polar bears happy if they could stomach the rotten fetid meat.

  2. Don’t you know!? Global warming causes rain, snow, cold, heat, and everything in between! It’s a cover-all for any weather phenomenon that exists!

  3. They are insane enough to think their propaganda in fact changes reality instead of simply distorting perception of reality istself.

  4. I really hate to say this…butt.
    The world is ending tomorrow.
    Tune in…
    CNN will have a full play by play of the world ending.
    Gotta go… I just crapped my depends again.
    It’s really hard to walk around in fear sucking your thumb.
