A rowboat expedition to the Arctic made possible by climate change | Environment | guardian.co.uk

They haven’t even started yet, how does she know the trip is possible?

The trip is a joke. Their route covers less than half of the Northwest Passage, and the route is blocked with 90+% concentration multi-year ice. They will probably end up dragging the canoe for most of the route.

    They should have sled runners installed on the bottom of the boat and a dog team to pull them over the ice.

    But this “journey” is the perfect metaphor for the dying alarmist cause . . . .

    It’s all media-driven, it takes place in complete ignorance of the plain facts on the ground, and it is far more likely to harm the participants than achieve anything positive.

    Carry on! DIPSH*TS

    It could be by July 4th, there’ll be a media blackout on this one:)
    I’d love to see some real-time footage of their journey.

  4. Andy DC says:

    I would not at all be surprised if they are airlifted to their destination, claiming success.

      By hook or by crook, disciples doing Gaia’s work.

    • These gentlemen are seasoned adventurers and have already earned their fame.

      Kevin Vallely, along with teammates Ray Zahab and Richard Weber ,broke the world record for the fastest unsupported trek from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole.

      Paul Gleeson and a rowing partner completed an 85 day, 2500 mile transatlantic rowing voyage in 2006

      Peter Wolf and a partner canoed from the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia to Vancouver, British Columbia, a 171-day epic journey that involved a 400-kilometer portage across the Rocky Mountains.

        So you are saying they are better prepared and fitter than any other humans that have tried this……………but any success will still be blamed on AGW ?

        You lot are nothing but liars

      • Eric Barnes says:

        “seasoned adventurers” should actually read “trustafarian a-holes”

      • Mike says:

        Nothing more than a bunch of greenfleecing exhibitionists traveling in a luxury boat with gps positioning and panic beacons. Does the boat have skids and a towing eye as well?

        These guys are an insult to Amundsen and other great fearless explorers.

  5. Brian G Valentine says:

    There have been so many botched “expeditions made possible because of climate change” to various parts of the Arctic you can’t count them, and none of the tragedies and mishaps made a bit of difference to the next fool in line

  6. “The trip is a joke. Their route covers less than half of the Northwest Passage”

    When Roald Amundsen made the first successful crossing of the Northwest Passage in 1903-06, he finished near Herschel Island at the mouth of the Mackenzie River, a short distance from their starting point in Inuvik, NWT. Their final destination is Pond Inlet, Baffin Island.
    Essentially what they are doing is retracing Amudsen’s journey in reverse. all in one year, as opposed to three.

  7. What will it cost tax payers to rescue these people again?

  8. A wonderful opportunity for the Darwin Effect to work its endless charm by cleaning more debris from the human gene pool. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving crew. Stupid is as stupid does.

  9. Andy Oz says:

    Lovely Propaganda exercise. Token polar bear will be on TV with some ice and ocean in arctic summer. No video of airline journey or chopper journey or giant ice breaker journey. That’s not PC to the warmists agenda. Send us some happy snaps.

  10. Pathway says:

    Human on a stick. Yum.

  11. ralphcramdo says:

    How long will it take to get frostbitten toes this time?

  12. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    If these ecotards are as slow as they are dumb then the way a polar bear would describe them is “easy snack”.

    The morally superior ones taste so much better.

  13. Traitor In Chief says:

    The entire point of this Charade has already been realized. Libtards crave attention almost as much as they crave riches. So, there is a Gubmint funded “Sponsor” to pay for the adventure, and all the rest is self promotion. They drive a nice comfy Hummer to the starting point, drag the canoe a few hundred yards, camp, then call for the rescue squad. The objective of the entire scam is publicity.

  14. I. Lou Minotti says:

    I could make that trip even without “global warming.” All I would need is my American-made, 17′ Grumman aluminum canoe, a thirty-pack of Bud, a carton of Marlboros, and any overweight American female willing to drag it across the ice as part of her weight-loss regemin.

  15. Kaboom says:

    Cancellation of the trip by polar bear sounds quite fitting in an ironic way.

    Why do these men hate starving children?
