KIRSTERS BAISH| Liberals are still crying over the cancellation of a global warming study that was to be done in the Arctic last month. The reason the study was ultimately cancelled? Brace yourself… there was too much ice in the Arctic.
The enemy of all leftists got the best of these liberal scientists, reality. Climate change isn’t the issue that the liberal media wants us to believe it is. This discovery changed plans for the research vessel Amundsen. The Canadian Coast Guard can redirect the vessel if its abilities are needed to clear lanes in ice for fishing boats or any supply vessels, like oil tankers.
Last year climate change activist scientists made a plan to use the Amundsen to prove to all of us who live in the real world that global warming is real. The problem for them was that the earth showed them that they were wrong.
Science Daily reported that “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 Amundsen is a huge ship. Basically, it’s built to break giant ice caps. Unfortunately, the mission was pretty pricy coming in at $17 million. This was a four-year project conducted by the University of Manitoba. Science Daily wrote “the need to deal with extreme ice conditions in the south meant the ship would arrive too late on site to meet research objectives.” So the ice was so thick that they weren’t able to complete the project. Kind of ironic, don’t you think?
Dr. David Barber proclaimed “it became clear to me very quickly that these weren’t just heavy ice conditions, these were unprecedented ice conditions.”
The scientists involved found ice caps that were as large as five meters thick. These are the same scientists who claimed to know without a shadow of a doubt how the climate would behave within the next 100 years. These are also the same scientists who we were told to trust because they have been trained in this area and know more than we all do about science. Let me ask you this, how is the earth reaching dangerously high temperatures if the ice caps are so thick that this group of scientists weren’t even able to conduct their experiment?
But this isn’t the first climate change study that was stopped before it even started.
Breitbart News contributor, James Delingpole, reminded us that “there was the Ship of Fools expedition in which an Australian climate researcher called Chris Turkey had to call an expedition to the melting Antarctic after his ship got stuck in the ice.”
Yup, Turkey was in search of finding melting ice caps and instead got himself stuck because there was just so much damn ice. And Turkey wasn’t the only other scientist who failed a mission in search of evidence to support his Ludacris global warming claims due to an excess of ice.
The simple truth is that we don’t know as much as we think we do about the earth we live on. We need to be open to the fact that maybe the ice caps aren’t all melting and we don’t need to send ourselves into a frenzy about something that probably won’t happen. So next time some liberal tries to shove climate change down your throat you can remind them that the ice in the Arctic is still as thick as can be.
