    A yes, I’m sure ships are sailing through the NW passage right now. Cabin boys wearing shorts and no shirts serving the passengers sitting on their deck chairs watching a poor polar bears drown while getting great tans in their bathing suits. Probably need SP30.

    Where is Jim Hunt, I need a laugh!

    I don’t think a blow torch would even help them.

    Maybe they can make their way to Russian waters where Putin can show them to a nice warm jail cell.

    They are going to need a BIG blowtorch. Maybe two or more. With wheels… or perhaps wings. Well, heck, we’ve gone this far, might as well put a pressurized cabin on it and call it a jet airplane.

    Yeah, that’s the ticket!

      Why not just mount half a dozen jet Turbines onto a large hovercraft or two … when they hit the pressure ridges, that ought to be the next best thing to snow boarding moguls.

        That sounds like great fun! The really crazy part is that I can see some of the CAGW crowd trying something like that and burning up tons of fuel in the process. Worried about the fragile Artic because of climate change? Burn a bunch of diesel fuel on a pleasure trip to the ice. For people who supposedly think there is too much CO2 in the world, they sure make a LOT of it. Their cult leaders fly all over the world (often in private aircraft) cranking out massive amounts of CO2. During the meeting that produced the Kyoto Agreement, Al Gore had his private limousine parked for hours with the motor running all the time. Why? So that when the time to leave came, he would not have to wait a few minutes before the air conditioner caught up.

        My brother and his wife a big CAGW believers. How do they spend vacations? Driving a big RV all over the US so that they can see the beautiful sights.

          I have a nice Wagonette that seats six and a tent I can sell them….

          It gets about 25 to thirty miles per gallon of oats.

        • Jason Calley says:

          Hey Gail! Nice wagonette! If the carbon tax people have their way, you may see a better market for selling that.

        • kbray in california says:

          The methane from the oats can be quite taxing as well… 🙂

    • Marian says:

      They could drop a nuke. That should fix the too much ice problem. 🙂

    I suppose the snorkelers are now stuck in ice.

  7. lance says:

    No problem, the HMS Reggie will be front and centre.

    It’s not looking good so far people doing the NW Passage, having said that it has been very good in the past few years compared to the recent record.


    • Thanks, Andy. I was curious if someone will provide a serious and substantive commentary on the NW Passage instead of all the horsing around.

      Your analysis is right on the money: it’s been not good, then it was good, and now it’s not good again.

      I would only add that some had it not good even when the passage was good.

  9. Andy says:

    Considering this blog is called Real Science there are not too many really good posts on here apart from Real Jokers….

    They are in effect dumbing down your blog Steve .. you should ban them.

    As Oscar Wilde once said “Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit”

    In case you’re worried about losing access to the old newspaper archive from Google, just skip’em. has a good old newspaper searching utility.

    Also the National Endowment for the Humanities has a newspaper archive:
