Ahhh… The irony is breathtaking:
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.”
Yes, the Arctic ice is low by historic measures, it seems courtesy of the recently ended El Nino, but it’s a long way from disappeared.
According to the fear mongers, it was meant to be gone by 2000. Mind you, they don’t tell you that the North West passage – and the North East passage – is called the North West passage because it used to be – A PASSAGE!!! Which means the ice used to be less in the Arctic which means…
Oh, I can’t be bothered.
