Global Warming Expedition Stopped In Its Tracks By Arctic Sea Ice


The MV Akademik Shokalskiy is pictured stranded in ice in Antarctica, December 29, 2013. An Antarctic blizzard has halted an Australian icebreaker


By CRAIG BOUDREAU – 10:43 AM 07/20/2016

A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and climate scientists that recently started a journey around the North Pole in an effort to show the lack of ice, has been blocked from further travels by ice.

The Polar Ocean Challenge is taking a two month journey that will see them go from Bristol, Alaska, to Norway, then to Russia through the North East passage, back to Alaska through the North West passage, to Greenland and then ultimately back to Bristol. Their objective, as laid out by their website, was to demonstrate “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.”

There has been one small hiccup thus-far though: they are currently stuck in Murmansk, Russia because there is too much ice blocking the North East passage the team said didn’t exist in summer months, according to Real Climate Science.

Real Climate Science also provides a graph showing that current Arctic temperatures — despite alarmist claims of the Arctic being hotter than ever — is actually below normal.

  1. “A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and climate scientists that recently started a journey around the North Pole in an effort to show the lack of ice, has been blocked from further travels…… by ice.”

    (shakes head)

    God, I love these adorable idiots…

  2. Smack in the middle of summer too. You can’t make this stuff up.
    I thought the useful idiots said it was now climate change?
    More proof, all the bogus computer models have been wrong. Garbage in, garbage out.

  3. Wonder if FedEx can deliver a tree to them so they can all engage in a group hug?

    Al Gore, Al Gore. Please call your office. We have a situation here. Our ship that has been dispatched to document the shrinking ice cap is stuck in the ice.

  4. But….but…but more ice also means climate change. After all, anything that happens in our climate, being regional droughts or floods, heat waves or freezes, is because of “climate change.” There’s a reason the leftards changed “global warming” to “climate change.”

  5. Gotta love it when the lefty liberal end of times is held up by the hand of God. Climate this you bunch of self serving, twisting the outcome for your benefit cheating scientists. Nature 1= 0 Stupid humans.

    • Why the panic? We’ve been coming out the last ice age for 6 thousand years with periods of warming when the Northwest Passage was open and they could raise grapes for wine making in England. When the cooling returned they went back to making beer. It’s a win – win.

  6. I don’t buy into man-made climate change, but if we were seriously trying to lower carbon dioxide levels around the planet, we should have a massive effort to plant more trees. Also, if we are really concerned about reducing ozone destruction, we should reduce the number of jet flights; and the number of space missions. Scientists are so unscientific!

    • If they were that concerned and totally believing in there spiel, they’de be traveling in airships (most efficient way of air travel) to their shindigs. Of course, it’ll take ten times longer to get there, but show some kind of commitment at least.

    • Already being done! You can buy carbon offset credits from Al Gore’s company which will then allow you to continue to burn rubbish in your back yard by planting several eucalyptus trees in South America on barren land where they are burning off the Amazon jungle! You get to burn trash, the air gets clean, and Al pockets $$$ – everyone wins!

    • Nope! They’ve been busy the last 8 years betraying Americans ( at least the low-info crowd) by misrepresenting, shielding and lying to protect the sickness of progressive liberalism, the Democrat Party and the fraud in the White House!
      What? I’ve been busy!

  7. As long as private and government donors keep believing all of the Bravo Sierra; they will keep funding these scientists. The same scientists may be behind the $15 per hour minimum wage, as a hedge when their climate-scam gig runs out .

  8. And they want to throw the Global Warming skeptics in jail…. Lol lol lol.

    I hope some tree hugging millionaire is slowly realizing that all the money he gave these clowns has actually proving the opposite point he/she intended.
    Here me DiCaprio?

  9. “…despite alarmist claims of the Arctic being hotter than ever — is actually below normal…”
    …which is actually rubbish; the arctic is warming faster than any other part of the globe; of course you won’t find Climate Depot providing a reference to their nonsense assertion

    • “McIntyre and McKitrick obtained part of the program that Mann used, and they found serious problems. Not only does the program not do conventional PCA, but it handles data normalization in a way that can only be described as mistaken.

      “Now comes the real shocker. This improper normalization procedure tends to emphasize any data that do have the hockey stick shape, and to suppress all data that do not. To demonstrate this effect, McIntyre and McKitrick created some meaningless test data that had, on average, no trends. This method of generating random data is called “Monte Carlo” analysis, after the famous casino, and it is widely used in statistical analysis to test procedures. When McIntyre and McKitrick fed these random data into the Mann procedure, out popped a hockey stick shape!

      “That discovery hit me like a bombshell, and I suspect it is having the same effect on many others. Suddenly the hockey stick, the poster-child of the global warming community, turns out to be an artifact of poor mathematics. How could it happen?”

  10. You just got to love it. Karma for sure. There may be some global warming but it is much better than global cooling as it is hard to grow crops for food in ice or shortened growing seasons. This warming period isn’t even as extreme as ones in past eons so just take a breath relax and hope the next ice age isn’t as bad as the last one. It will be here soon enough.

  11. When I was a kid scientists were working on a blanket to cover large areas of land to keep them warm. Yes in the 50s and 60s global cooling was the issue. Since then I have learned about the Pacific Decadal Oscillation and how it is the main factor influencing the weather here in Southern California. But contrary to popular liberal belief the earth is cooling, we are only about 10K years from the next ice age.

  12. there is only one goal for the climate hypers,..and that is control. there may be many well-meaning, gullible, ill-informed sincere people that think this is a HUGE problem, but for TPTB it is control. the goal is control

  13. 200 years of recorded climate data and all of a sudden we know everything to know about the history of climate on the 4.5 Billion year old planet earth? Now I know why almost all comics are liberals, they are hilariously entertaining without really even trying.

  14. This? This is proof there is no climate change? They set sail on the exact date they wanted…which was today. It will take 10 days to reach the ice referred to in this drodgebot-trainwreck of an article, and most sailors in Murmansk think the ice will be receded by then. It’s a sailboat, and the feat would be unprecedented, with the footnote being the fact that our climate would now allow this. Follow the blog of the crew, see if they make it. Nah….too much readin’.

  15. This is freaking hilarious! And this type of situation happens frequently with the warmer-crowd. Mother nature interferes with their religious beliefs.

    They try to get out their propaganda and they’re stalled by the GD ice! HA!

  16. That can’t be true. Their boat couldn’t have been stopped by ice.

    Either they’re lying about their boat getting stopped by the ice, or they’re lying about global warming.
    Either way, they’re lying.

  17. What about the folks currently at the South Pole where it is colder than normal this winter? Minus 80F and the wind blowing so hard they can’t rescue a person needing critical medical attention. Crickets from the press on that one. By the way, does anyone know about that incident?

  18. This is not a problem. While they’re stuck in Murmansk they’ll have plenty of time to think of some convoluted way of blaming all of this ice on global warming. The environmental wacko rule is no matter what type of weather or climate extreme is occurring, it always due to global warming.

  19. At what point does the news that idiots get stranded in ice not make the news……I guess when they are all frozen dead.

    If a global warmist dies on an iceberg and no one cares does it make a noise?

  20. In the early 1970’s these earth worshipers were screaming we were entering an iceage and all animal life was going to be dead by the 1990’s it did not happen. These very same people by the mid 1980’s were screaming we were going into an irreversible “Global Warming” period, it did not happen. What do they do when they are called out on it? they now say “climate change” to fit their propaganda, anything to get more research money plus they could care less about your children.

  21. Doesn’t really matter if they discover that the ice is not receding. The objective is not research, but to advance a political agenda. They’ll find some way to blame mankind for something going on in the North Pole. Then sit back and wait for more government grants.

  22. Elitists funded by other elitists doing the “Grand Tour” that proletarian elitists only dream about then bore others with their exploits. How many tons of hydrocarbons were oxidized during their Grand Tour?

  23. Wonder what it feels like to accidentally disprove the nuttiness you’re trying to prove.

    This isn’t gonna make the folks back at the Glo-Bull Religion Special Olympics and Temperature Fudging Cultist Laboratory very happy.

  24. These people are idiots. They will return hailing how they could not find any ice! The government has lost all credibility with the public! The EPA STILL will NOT release it’s data on it latest findings as they know is is full of sh|t!

  25. Hahahahahahahahahaha!
    Folks, remember fanatics (both Leftists and Muslims) will never give up their ideology! They have become their ideology. Rational people would never blow themselves up, nor blow up innocent crowds, nor fly airplanes into buildings thinking they would instantly go to Paradise.

    American and European Leftists actually LOVE this terror, it gives them excuse to have more gov’t control over everything, the definition of Socialism. Lying, crooked HiLIARy is one bad ideologue: her graduate thesis, (, was on how great was Saul Alinsky. Please pay attention to her ‘acknowledgements.’

  26. Don’t worry, the globalists seeking to create hidden taxes and spending havens for their rich, lavish lifestyles will “adjust” the current recorded temperatures to take into account some strange or somewhat believable metric and include it in the reported temperatures for 2016. Today a weather reporter said that June 2016 was the hottest on record. Meanwhile, the reported temperatures were not even close to the highest recorded levels (it was in fact a mild and rainy June where we live). They were adjusting the temperatures with humidity and reporting values much higher than actually felt. Since it was a rainy June, of course it was humid. But that actually COOLED the weather for us not made it oppressively hotter. At some point, we need to put chicken little out to pasture and remove their ability to report… (like screaming “fire” in crowded theatres.)

  27. I have a solution to freeing the icebound ship:
    Send Al Gore to the Antarctic and let him bloviate. In a couple of hours he will have freed the ship and opened an ice-free passage for the ship to sail out of

  28. When will they stop calling these idiots “experts” ? None in the mainstream media ever calls them on their failed claims. The Arctic was predicted to be ice free by 2013 according to Cambridge expert Prof. Peter Wadham.

  29. To a cult believer, reality is what they are told by their “prophets” seeking *profits*, not what the actual reality is. To these cult believers, that ice does not even exist, even though they are physically trapped by it.

  30. These gummy brained activists and alarmists are going to cling to their “scientific” evidence….erroneous though it may be. Nothing can stop insanity in pursuit of its ridiculous end goals. So be it. As the tattered saying goes..”You can’t fix stupid”…and these dopes prove it once again.

  31. LMAO, just another set of dumba**es proving themselves wrong. Why would you spend so much money and effort on something that has been proven wrong again and again? Well I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, the same kind of thinking leads people like this to try socialism again and again, despite it failing miserably every time.

  32. It’s funny when they fake the data, and then start believing their own lies. But it’s okay, they probably made a bundle on government subsidies, grants, and sponsorship for their “historical” (should be hysterical) journey.

  33. These clowns will keep on claiming doom and gloom as long as they get paid. This is nothing more then a global takeover, thankfully it is not going too well. Global Warming, Human made climate change or whatever you want to call it is a scam…

  34. This obstructionist ice is clearly Bush’s Fault! I think these Climate Heroes should declare a moral victory because they reached The People’s Pole and not some stupid ‘both Pole’ picked by some giant capitalist corporations.

  35. There appears to be scientific evidence that the polar caps are melting and that they are growing, depending on who you listen to. All I know is that the beach is the same as it was 50 years ago.

  36. We are more likely to be heading to a mini ice age (Maunder Minimum) than a warming. The annual warmer and cooler years relate to sun spots which has been known and observed for 400 years. The climatic impact of man is small and frankly has improved greatly over the last 200 years as we have developed away from dirty coal and wood fires to use natural gas, low emission diesel, nuke, and cleaner coal.

    Liberals claim to be upbeat but for some reason they don’t want to recognize the greatly improved earth we have as evidenced by cleaner water ways, bays, and skies.

  37. The Achilles Heal of AGW, they can fudge the numbers and models to feed us fake data that supports their claims; BUT they can’t fudge reality.

    I fully expected that one day several decades from now, NOAA weather would be reporting that it is 125 F in New York City in September, while there is 8″ of snow on the ground and homeless people freezing to death.

  38. These are the same genius activists who vote for more Gun Control Laws even though their feral/fatherless offspring are constantly violating the ones WE ALREADY HAVE and contributing to 95% of the nation’s violent-crime rate…

  39. And yet, it should be a punishable crime to deny global warming?

    [sarcasm]OTOH, why not? As long as we’re tossing out the second amendment, might as well knock out that pesky first one as well. It’s a LIVING DOCUMENT, people! It should say what those currently in power want it to. :/ [/sarcasm]

  40. Petards…Get your fresh made Petards. Only ONE reputation each. Get HOISTED right along with your friends and fellow believers… Petards…. Petards…. Get yours now while they last… Petards… Only a small reputation for one BIG Petard…. Getum now they’re going fast in the climate change asylum…..

  41. So now we know that alleged climate scientists are so stupid they couldn’t look at a satellite mapping of the area from the weather service before leaving on such an expedition.

  42. you idiots. do your homework. is owned and operated by a special interest group lobbying for the oil companies and you fall right into the trap of believing all the bs they feed you…

  43. The difference between “climate science” and real science is that with real science, when your model fails to make accurate predictions, your theory is falsified. Global warming cannot be falsified, because it isn’t held to the same standards as real science.

    There is no context in which “hide the decline” can be construed as meaning anything except “falsify the data.”

  44. Liberalism is simply intellectual dishonesty…that they apparently deceive even themselves with. By their not wanting there to be ice and by their denial of reality, they believe they can change reality…and they get stuck in the ice they want to convince others does not exist. But, just like Debbie Wasserman Schultz “They see nothing” and if asked would probably come up with 1000 denials like Baghdad Bob that they are actually trapped in the ice they don’t believe is there.

    • In Antarctica in Dec 2013-Jan 2014, high summer in that hemisphere; a russian ship carrying warming researchers got stuck in what is usually a clear passage most of the year by thick ice. An Australian ice breaker sent to rescue them also got stuck. Another ice breaker turned around before getting stuck. The 52 passengers including global warming researchers were eventually air lifted via helicopter.

    • What they really should put their time and money into studying is how all of the heat from warming is clustering around their sensors while it is getting colder everywhere else. We haven’t had a 90 F day yet this summer, they are forecasting the first for this summer this Saturday. We’ve normally had at least a week of 90s+ by this time of year.

      • the bottom line on this is that objectivity on the entire subject has been tainted by the presence of the Carbon Tax and Cap and Trade advocate parasites…there is a large amount of money at stake in this boondoggle concept, and people like Gore and his ilk, as well as other governments have set their sights on a vast new taxation cash cow, yet another way to milk the populace of whatever they have left …it’s like Obamacare for planet Earth

  45. If this collection of climate science “experts” were so Mensa-smart, how come they couldn’t even predict that the arctic ice enroute would be too thick for them to complete their journey? Don’t answer, it’s a rhetorical question.

  46. You know, one of these days you’d think these morons would learn. Every time they start one of these expeditions to ‘prove’ their religion to be true — they get stuck in the ice they said wasn’t there. It happened in the Antarctic, and now it’s happened in the Arctic. And it happens to Al Gore almost every time he tries to have one of his big “global warming” summits — it gets snowed out.

  47. A large part of why the weather is so “wacky” is due to the implementation of weather modification programs and Geoengineering of the planet. None of which is being talked about due to the C I A propaganda arm known as the lame stream media being complicit in the massive disinfo campaign. We aren’t being fed the proper information because they don’t want us to know the truth. I think some of us are smarter than that tho.

  48. No, no, of course any child knows that MORE ice actually points to MORE warming, as the ice melts, the water warms and condensates, which causes more clouds, which makes it colder, causing snow, and ice, which then warms….Wait, um, I lost my place…

  49. Being trapped in Ice in the Arctic doesn’t change the fact that the Ice levels in the arctic are their lowest in the last 450 years and have dropped 75% since 1970.

    WTF is wrong with you ldiots? Taking one case of one event and extrapolating that to the entire picture?

    Is this how dumb Republicans are?

  50. Might be worth looking at the NSIDC web site to see what has actually being happening to the Ice in the Arctic since 1979. There are ups and downs but the trend for every month is down down down.

  51. The comments below seem low on intelligent interpretation. Is this a reflection of American politics. Debate seems to consist of insults hurled back and forth across a high wall, over which neither side has a sight of the other.

    This story is telling only half the tale. The voyage in question is being conducted in a yacht. Should it encounter any ice it would struggle. It has now departed Murmansk. The success or failure of this expedition proves nothing. It’s presence in the Arctic does provide an insight into the state of the Arctic ice!

    Arctic ice melt has broken records for the first 6 months of this year, and by a long way.

  52. Your story is 2 & 1/2 years old. It was not published in 2016, but in January of 2014. Don’t take my word for it though as here are two other news items on this same subject:

    Why did Antarctic expedition ship get stranded in ice?

    Why is it that climate change deniers always try to lie?
