Global Warming Study Canceled After Humiliating Discovery
You can say this for bleeding-heart liberals: They certainly have a flair for the ironic.
An expedition designed to gather evidence of global warming and “climate change” in the Arctic was canceled last month after a humiliating discovery was made: There was so much ice in the Arctic that the icebreaker it was going to use was needed elsewhere.
Yes, you read that right. It’s the return of left-leaning scientists’ famous nemesis, “Reality.” And this time it affected plans for the research vessel Amundsen, which can be redirected by the Canadian Coast Guard if its icebreaking capabilities are required to clear lanes for fishing boats or supply vessels, such as oil tankers, according to the Winnipeg Free Press.
That was the case this year, when climate change activists scientists had planned to use the Amundsen to prove the globe is just getting too darn warm.
“The Science Team of the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has cancelled the first leg of the 2017 Expedition due to complications associated with the southward motion of hazardous Arctic sea ice,” the news site Science Daily reported.
Keep in mind that the Amundsen is no lightweight ship. “It’s the second most powerful icebreaker in the country and we had trouble getting through the sea ice,” David Barber, an arctic research expert, told the Free Press.
