Rowers Discover That Mark Serreze’ Linear Trends Are A Bunch Of Breathtakingly Ignorant BS

It turns out that climate is cyclical, not linear, and does not correlate with CO2.

Our ice router Victor has been very clear in what lies ahead. He writes, “Just to give you the danger of ice situation at the eastern Arctic, Eef Willems of “Tooluka” (NED) pulled out of the game and returning to Greenland. At many Eastern places of NWP locals have not seen this type ice conditions. Residents of Resolute say 20 years have not seen anything like. Its, ice, ice and more ice. Larsen, Peel, Bellot, Regent and Barrow Strait are all choked. That is the only route to East. Already West Lancaster received -2C temperature expecting -7C on Tuesday with the snow.”

Richard Weber, my teammate to the South Pole in 2009 and without doubt the most accomplished polar skier alive today, is owner and operator of Arctic Watch on Cunningham Inlet at the northern end of Somerset Island. Arctic Watch faces out onto our proposed eastern route. Richard dropped me a note the other day advising: “This has been the coldest season with the most ice since we started Arctic Watch in 2000. Almost no whales. The NWPassage is still blocked with ice. Some of the bays still have not melted!”

We row into Cambridge Bay, the official conclusion of our Mainstream Last First expedition – MainStream Last First

    The kayakers have also arrived in Cambridge Bay. I wonder if they are giving up as well.

    • miked1947 says:

      The Firefighter in the Kayak have restocked and upgraded their equipment to handle the winter conditions they expect for the rest of the trip. Unlike the Pull Together Gang, the Kayakers were better prepared for their journey. The tracking still shows them in Cambridge Bay, but they usually set a tracking point twice a day when they are travelling.
      The two from Australia were only planning to sail and row to Cambridge Bay and they also arrived there yesterday.

    they better, end of aug and the icebreaker/tanker traffic to outposts like Eureka occurred at the end of Aug when I was up there, and shortly thereafter, Fjord froze over…

  3. gofer says:

    And after all that, they still had the balls to make this statement.

    “…Our message remains unaffected though, bringing awareness to the pressing issues of climate change in the arctic.”

    • mike says:

      The message is loud and clear, climate change has meant freezing conditions in the Arctic is no place for idiotic environuts.

  4. Colorado Wellington says:

    I remember they made several other noteworthy discoveries:

    1. The bulky boat they had custom-built for their Arctic trip can’t be rowed against the wind.
    2. There is wind in the Arctic.
    3. Their trip was possible because of climate change and no ice.
    4. Their trip was not possible because of bad weather and ice.
    5. The locals told them winters are shorter and warmer.
    6. The locals told them they can’t continue because of winter.
    7. Men who stop shaving grow beards.
    8. Men who stop bathing smell bad.
    9. Smelly men with beards locked in a small cabin during a stupid trip don’t kill each other despite the availability of 2 marine shotguns.

    Did I forget anything else of great societal import?

  5. Chewer says:

    That’s a no-shitter and as you’ve reported, the entire Arctic summer melt season has sucked and the fall temperatures are a precursor to what’s coming:

    At least the south pole is starting to see spring temperatures:

    The rowers would have been sitting pretty and cruising home in a breeze if Reggie hadn’t experienced erectile dysfunction of the blow-torch variety. Reggie’s failure to launch doomed the climate alarmism row to a slow, cold icy death 😉

    • Chewer says:

      Team Twisted received a severe spanking, but their documentary will show it to be a total success.
      I can’t wait till they make an attempt again next year-:)

  7. Chewer says:

    Our star should have a smoking output right now at solar max (wind speed, outreaching content, bent magnetosphere of the Earth and Aurora out the ass, etc…), but not so much with SC-24, which has been a wimp:
    # Num Lat.,CMD Long. Area Extent class count class
    1834 N13W07 19 30 7 CRI 17 B
    1835 S10W00 12 180 4 DAI 10 B
    1836 N11E33 339 180 10 CAO 5 B

  8. Chewer says:

    Monday morning September 2nd, is all she wrote for latent heat melting within the Arctic Circle…

  9. Jack Savage says:

    The lesson I am taking away from this is that some (most? me too? ) people, even if you beat them over the head with evidence that their belief might be erroneous, continue to believe nevertheless. The Arctic must be warm because the scientists and the Inuit say so. I expect that they will be coming back to try again next year? Some how I think their “belief” will not extend to that.
    I wonder if their experience will have had a chilling effect on expeditions being planned for next year.
    Maybe next year the heat will emerge from the oceans as Joule-zilla.

  10. Andy DC says:

    It was so great seeing Reggie crash and burn after coming across as such a wise ass, condescending know it all.

  11. Stephen Richards says:

    And they make it sound like a wonderful experience and success. Unbelieveably stupid people of whom Reggie is a superb example.

  12. Edmonon Al says:

    Andy and Stephen are correct in their assessments.
    These buffoons will probably go back to Vancouver; get a Government grant and mount the piece of junk…….sorry…… the Arctic Joule, on a pedestal, with a big plaque that boasts of their great feat of “bringing awareness to the pressing issues of climate change in the arctic.”

    • F. Guimaraes says:

      Maybe if the climate really gets colder as many here are predicting, me included, they will be remembered as one of the first that told the truth about “climate changing” in the Arctic… hehe.

  13. Colorado Wellington says:

    Climate scientists say the sudden appearance of ice in eastern Arctic is unnatural. The Justice Department Witchcraft Division started an investigation of Steven Goddard for weather cooking.

  14. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    “Our message remains unaffected though, bringing awareness to the pressing issues of climate change in the arctic.”

    Sane people change their minds when the facts change. The boys are clueless ecotards, bowing and scraping in subservience to Gaia.

  15. Hugh K says:

    “We fly home tomorrow, our heads still spinning…”

    Uncork the Kool-Aid. No doubt there will be a large crowd of like-minded spinning heads welcoming back the new poster children for liberal policy failure.

  16. Robert Austin says:

    How about unbanning Reggie so he can come back here and explain the great blow torch failure.

  17. margaret berger says:

    They are too ignorant to even understand how lucky they are that they didn’t win the Darwin Award. Maybe, years down the line they will realize that they were duped.
