Stop peeking in on Climate Change its shy about its polar regions. Damn perverts.



In an ironic, depressing turn of events, a highly anticipated climate change research expedition to the Arctic has been canceled … because of climate change.

This week, the research team of the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen announced the cancellation of the first leg of its 2017 expedition. The icebreaker was set to depart for the Strait of Belle Isle and the northeast coast of Newfoundland, but that leg of the trip was deemed too dangerous because of unusually severe ice conditions. Warm temperatures in the Arctic caused the shrinking, thinning ice cover to become more mobile, said David Barber, the expedition's chief scientist. This hazardous ice movement would not only delay the vessel's ability to conduct research, but could also pose serious safety concerns, according to the research team.

In an interview with The Guardian, Barber noted the irony of the cancellation.

"We're doing a large-scale climate change study and before we can even get going on it, climate change is conspiring to force us to cancel that study," Barber told the newspaper.

The $17-million, four-year project aims to monitor and understand how climate change is impacting the marine and coastal ecosystems of the Arctic. Bringing together 40 scientists from five universities across Canada, and led by the University of Manitoba, the CCGS Amundsen is still on schedule for the remainder of the 2017 expedition, which resumes in July.

Conditions in the Arctic show that climate change is something the planet is currently facing, not a problem for the future, according to the CCGS Amundsen team.

It makes me confused why these climate scientists aren't aware that the conditions are bad enough that there is a dangerous risk. I thought that was pretty common knowledge these days >_>.

There's a difference between "dangerous risk" and "suicide" though.

I'm pretty sure ice has always restricted travel. Its kind of hard to go through solid ice.

Yes, clearly that was the only factor in this circumstance. Totally not caused by climate change at all.

But it was. The arctic used top be permanently frozen. Thanks to climate we can now traverse those once perilous waters. Thanks sun your muh greatest ally!

There is a great book about being stuck in Arctic ice called "Endurance"; guess the rise of the oceans will be delayed ...again.

If climate change is fact, and does end up killing everyone,

would that really be a bad thing?

I am no scientist, so when those in the know speak, I listen. And when the vast majority of scientists say human activity is contributing to something which could potentially be very bad, does it make sense to politicize it? The fact is, nobody on this board knows jack shit about atmospheric chemistry. This is the reason we have experts, and almost all of them are saying the same thing.

Consider this: Some doctors will tell you replacement opioids are non psychoactive and non habit forming, with no withdrawal symptoms. Why would they say that, knowing it's a complete load? These are the same doctors who were making bank off every kid to whom they prescribed Ritalin or Prozac and other heavy pharmaceuticals.

Don't believe something because it's easier; ignoring a problem for the sake of short term convenience has consequences. What will be, will be, and time will tell who's side is vindicated. Only one of those sides, however, can we afford to be wrong.
