Four meter thick ice in the Beaufort Sea should be no problem at all.
Disrupting the Borg is expensive and time consuming!

When is the cruise organized by National Geographic?
This was also once thought to be insurmountable…
But in 1940, Spencer Tracy did the impossible!
Yes, great movie. I still remember the guy with the Indian head in a sack. It made a big impression on a 12 year old.
Reggie better get busy with his blowtorch.
In the year 1850 Lt. Robert McClure, commanding the Investigator came up just short of completing the crossing of the NW Passage. If he had had the advantage of GPS and satellites, there is no question he would have made it. Here we are 165 years later and no one has come close to making the NW Passage crossing; even with the help of satellites and GPS.
The variability of ice extent is much greater than the experts are telling us, making the claim that current Arctic ice extent is a result of CO2 warming is (in my opinion) lying in a very overt manner. Until these ice researchers can explain the low ice extents in the past, the present bleatings are just noise.
Sailed into the Puntarenas Yacht Club, Costa Rica in ’07. There was a Polish boat, and crew writing a documentary about their North West passage. Saw pics and some video of their adventure. I don’t think they faked it.
Are you sure it wasn’t the NE passage?
Probably the SE passage
SMS, first paragraph is incorrect. The first single season NWP transit was by RCMP officer Larsen in 1944. Took 89 days. See essay Northwest Passage for much more information on Arctic ice variability on multidecadal scales, and the associated measurement issues.
Read the post again “came up just short”. As for first to make it, I think Amundsen has stated that he could have made it at any time but did make in over a multi-year period as he was exploring the area.
Your missing the point of the comment. Compare the NW passage from 165 years ago to what it is today. McClure found a passage nearly open, yet what we have today is not even close to open. The comment is not meant to address who may have transited passage during interim.
“Here we are 165 years later and no one has come close to making the NW Passage crossing;”
I think you are incorrect. Amundsen did it in 1906, and several others have since. SS Manhattan was first cargo ship to make it, did so in 1969.
The passage became open to traffic without an icebreaker in 2007 and 2008.
Or so I have read.
You may be referring to the transit of the NE passage by a Russian nuclear icebreaker and two specially built cargo ships carrying oversized industrial equipment. This transit has been mistakenly identified as the NW passage by alarmists trying to show that the NW passage was open.
Russian Arctic drifting station “North Pole-2015” has officially started its work.
There goes the neighborhood!
Work? It’s a money making venture taking cash off of rich tourists.
Southwest passage still dicey too…
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — A Canadian cruise ship struck submerged ice off Antarctica and began sinking, but all 154 passengers and crew, Americans and Britons among them, took to lifeboats and were plucked to safety by a passing cruise ship.
The Chilean navy said the entire MS Explorer finally slipped beneath the waves Friday evening, about 20 hours after the predawn accident near Antarctica’s South Shetland Islands.
So, how is this possible?
Was Gilligan navigating again?
Or was it Francesco Schettino?
Was the ice laden with rocks to make it heavier than water?
Was this “Ice IX”?
Was it stuck to the bottom?
Or maybe a very oddly shaped iceberg with an underwater projection off to one side.
Or perhaps the official account given by the crew was a fib?
Actually, I think I have the answer after looking at the photo.
Submerged my eye!
The first rule of Climate Club is: you do not talk about Climate Club.
The second rule of Climate Club is: you DO NOT talk about Climate Club!
Third rule of Climate Club: if someone yells “ice!”, goes cold, or the models crap out, the debate is over.
Fourth rule: only alarmists get the mic.
Is shaped pattern polar vortex in the southern hemisphere. You can see that the vortex is shifted in the direction of South America. This means that in the region of Australia, occurs lock ozone (higher temperature). Winter will be similar to last year in Australia.
ren, can you explain the significance of this graphic?
Magnetic field changes
SWARM REVEALS EARTH’S CHANGING MAGNETISM
19 June 2014
The first set of high-resolution results from ESA’s three-satellite Swarm constellation reveals the most recent changes in the magnetic field that protects our planet.
Launched in November 2013, Swarm is providing unprecedented insights into the complex workings of Earth’s magnetic field, which safeguards us from the bombarding cosmic radiation and charged particles.
June 2014 magnetic field
Measurements made over the past six months confirm the general trend of the field’s weakening, with the most dramatic declines over the Western Hemisphere.
But in other areas, such as the southern Indian Ocean, the magnetic field has strengthened since January.
The latest measurements also confirm the movement of magnetic North towards Siberia.
Thank you ren.
Where Is current magnetic south in that map? In the red blob over the southern Indian Ocean?
Are the deep blue areas susceptible to greater cosmic radiation?
What are the concerns, implications?
Methinks this guy’s going to be disappointed:
Is that guy with the sign that famous tattoo artist?
This guy, however, while crazy is at least realistic:
