Having completed an epic 0% of the Northwest Passage (red line above) our intrepid rowers are blocked by ice and unfavorable winds.

This expedition was made possible by “climate change” through a route which was “once dominated by ice.”

    No really. We shouldn’t laugh.

  2. Chewer says:

    Twisted minds bring a twisted adventure!
    The entertainment factor is quite spectacular:)

    • F. Guimaraes says:

      Is some kind of madness, isn’t it? The AGW followers are delusional.

      • Andy Oz says:

        The Rowing Teams latest announcement on the mainstream last first site has them on the beach again spotting Beluga whales and ice floes coming at them on a calm still day. They are running out of time.

  3. James Anderson says:

    The comments on the Guardian are enough to gag a maggot off a gut wagon.

  4. Gamecock says:

    The rowers got their headlines.

  5. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    Ahhh yes. The Waldo Expedition.

    So much ice, so little time.

    • Andy Oz says:

      The Rowing Team are alerting the world to the lack of “ice” in the Arctic. Perhaps some warmists can organise a crystal meth air drop to the Rowing Team! They need it to increase their rowing “speed” to make it through in the next 4 weeks.

  6. Richard Lynch says:

    Looks like they are hunkered down, waiting for it to melt or for the wind to start blowing out of the south.

    • It would be absurd to attempt to continue. They can’t possibly complete the journey and if they proceed will become trapped by ice for the winter sometime in the next eight weeks.

      • Glacierman says:

        Their whole “journey” is absurd.

      • Andy DC says:

        It is so great to see Reggie and his buddies go down in flames. After all his pompous, know it all trash talk, Reggie got what he deserved.

        There excuse was priceless. Basically, it was too cold because it is too hot. And if you disgree, you are still a stinking denier, even though we made total fools of ourselves.

  7. slimething says:

    Where are they getting their food and water from?

  8. Stephen Richards says:

    The grauniad will still hail it as a success by hook or by crook. Mostly crooked.

  9. WJohn says:

    How useful would a shotgun be against a polar bear? Serious question.

    • People in Africa use shotguns to kill elephants.

    • Mike says:

      depends on the load.

    • Chewer says:

      A 12 gauge with 2.75″ / 3/4 Oz. slugs is not a preferred means of defense.
      If you hit the bear in any of its large bone structures, the animal will be pissed.
      Your best defense is a 10 gauge with 3.5″ slugs (speaking from experience).

      • kuhnkat says:

        Personally I would go with a ported .460 weatherby with 500gr FMJ bullets. That or a custom .50 cal sniper rifle with a shortened barrel and 750 gr slugs. Never did understand why they won’t allow manpads.

        • Chewer says:

          The old 1.75 ounce slug is quite the mass, but indeed the.460 & 50 Cal would offer great comfort.
          The 444 Marlin is also a nice addition:)

    • Fred from Canuckistan says:

      I know a guy who killed one with a 22.

      Depends where you put the bullet.

      • Bob says:

        I’ve also heard of folks who just annoyed brown bears with .22’s.
        .45 Colt, 325gr bullet, ~1300 fps AND someone who runs slower than I

  10. Mike says:

    A Brilliant success by any Liberal measure.

  11. swampsniper says:

    If they haven’t started eating their dead they haven’t even tried! It’s gonna make a terrible movie.

    • leftinbrooklyn says:

      Heh. Maybe they’ve decided climate change isn’t really that extreme.

    • Traitor In Chief says:

      They could continue until they need to utilize “The Custom of the Sea”, and then one of them may have the material for a movie.

  12. WJohn says:

    Donald Crowhurst?

  13. NZ Groover says:

    And finally the penny drops for the rowers. “This global warming stuff…..we’ve been had”

  14. Crashex says:

    These guys are still early into the first quarter of their game. They now realize that their opponent is bigger, stronger and faster than they had imagined. They’ve been outscored decisively but they are not ready to give up. The spectators all see that the game is lost; they know who will win. But the competitors are steeling themselves to try harder–give it 110%. They will recognize the game is lost at halftime ~Aug 20th. They will finish at Kuglutuk, get a plane out of town and hail themselves as successful record holders for having rowed farther than last years crew.

  15. Chewer says:

    The weasels are on the move again, and looking for success-:)

  16. Bob says:

    I think they should man up and keep trying. They have a few more weeks to minimum ice

  17. leftinbrooklyn says:

    They really shouldn’t get too down on themselves. There’s many other challenging possibilities. How ’bout Pamplona? I believe anyone has of yet successfully ‘Rowed with the Bulls.’

    • Mike says:

      No, they are lined up to do the Iditarod first, their warmist handlers have told them that the route is slushy and wet because of global warming, so these guys are going to row the route.

      After that they are crossing the Grand Canyon in a row boat strapped to a high line to highlight rising sea levels.

      The beauty of unnatural selection, these guys witness global warming everywhere they go.

  18. Billy Liar says:

    My bet is they’ll get to Cambridge Bay, no further.

  19. DGP says:

    Remember these are the people who think that the climate of the planet can be managed by an incompetent government bureaucracy. They probably thought that their good intentions alone would open the passage.

  20. Streetcred says:

    I wonder how the sponsors feel about being scammed by these nincompoops.

  21. Gerald Machnee says:

    How about a lottery pool to see how far they get?

  22. Where is the news about their stopping?

  23. Bob Koss says:

    I see they plotted one new location today and are no longer on shore. Moved another two entire kilometers. Now they’re about 0.6 km from shore. No location report in the past 5 hours tho’. Tuk weather has winds 11 mph from the east. current temperature 55F.

  24. kuhnkat says:

    Umm, wasn’t that special built boat able to submerge and go under the ice?!?!?!
