Arctic Moron Alert!

There is a huge area of Arctic sea ice north of Canada which is 3-5 metres thick, and is located in places which almost never get above 2C in mid-summer. This ice is not going to melt out during summer at any time in the foreseeable future.

People who forecast an ice-free Arctic are complete imbeciles.

    “People who forecast an ice-free Arctic are complete imbeciles.”

    And those that worry about it are even less intelligent.

    Attempts to reach the North pole by foot have been failures since Peary’s time for the same but counter intutitive reason that by failure has occurred by ship: the nature of high Arctic ice stability. While the ice is thick enough and stable enough to stop ships going through it, it breaks up into a never still complex of millions of small chunks separated by open water (leads) which measure from the feet to the miles across.

    The popular concept of Arctic ice is that of a continuous mass many feet thick. Untrue, and any reading of Arctic exploration reveals this (ships frozen into the bay while the straits outside are open is but one contradictory situation). It is a sea frozen at a unstable point probably not determined by air but water temperatures, water temperatures themselves subject to wind patterns as well as sunshine.

  3. I disagree that they are imbeciles, on the contrary, they are very bright and articulate con men.

    It’ll be interesting to see how many attempt the Northwest passage this year.

    And I was hoping that along with a very calm normal weather worldwide during the year, the Arctic would all melt away – just to hear all the confused waling and gnashing of teeth.
