Crystal Serenity Turns Off Their Cameras

My guess is they are going through a channel opened up by icebreakers, and don’t want people to know they are cheating.

    Pretty PATHETIC , isn’t it.

    Do they really think they will fool ANYONE except a bunch of brain-washed AGW fools ?

  2. RAH says:

    They’re on now it seems. Every one shows ice on the horizon.

  3. arn says:

    Come on Tony-that’s not cheating.
    These days it is called data adjustment.
    The recordings have to be interpolated((some cgi hollywood professionals will remove the icebreaker and replace the icebergs with palms trees and the ice bears with gorillas))
    -et voila.
    Another 100% prove of drought and no more ice and snow things from the past.

  4. Ron Clutz says:

    Indeed, they are entering Bellot Strait, a convoy of 2 icebreakers and 2 passenger ships.

    Updated at 9am. Cruisemapper shows Serenity following her icebreaker inside the Bellot Strait.

      As does here bridge cam.

      • Colorado Wellington says:

        Ms Griff’s models show open blue waters and no need for ice breakers. She will stop by shortly and explain why the cam image is wrong. It only shows a snapshot of actual ice rather than modeled ice melted away by global warming.

    To see another cheat (sail to the pole turns around at 80N)
    http://www.arcticmission.com/blog/
    The photos have dates of a week or more earlier than the purported time. The research photo was put on twitter on 8/28 with the hint that it was current (“we’re doing research.”). The research photo appears in a video that was published long before that. Same for a photo of skuas put on twitter 8/29, it’s also on the old video.
    My guess is that they had to use old photos or just show too much ice.

    • Jim Hunt says:

      Is this too much ice for you Doug?

      • Douglas Kubler says:

        From a source that has been very inaccurate re: research photo and skua photo being irrelevant to the posting time on twitter.

        A 9 day gap is too much to believe.

      • sunsettommy says:

        Why did they stop, turn around,go south TEN degrees?

        Maybe you missing some clues there Jim boy?

        • Jim Hunt says:

          They haven’t gone south TEN degrees Tommy.

          What are you smoking?

          • sunsettommy says:

            It was a QUESTION you blind moron!

            I already posted this for you earlier:

            “A meeting of the four skippers was held led by Erik de Jong, with Pen Hadow present, and it was agreed further northward progress would increase considerably the risks to the expedition, with very limited scientific reward. The decision to head south, back to an area of less concentrated sea ice in the vicinity of 79 degrees 30 minutes North, was made at 18.30 (Alaskan time).”

            Of course they didn’t say 10 degrees to the south.It was my QUESTION nothing more.

            Notice that they quietly change the mission from going TO the pole,to sailing AROUND the north pole region.

            It looks like they are trying to salvage something from their failed original mission.

            LOL

      • Douglas Kubler says:

        Then there’s the Facebook video of 8/22 which contains many of the pictures posted a week later with the implication of “now”.

      • Douglas Kubler says:

        Today they posted 4 photos on Facebook for the announcement of Aug 29th as farthest North. The first of four photos was used on Aug 25 as their updated cover photo. Can you locate in time and space your photo?

        • sunsettommy says:

          I am sure Jimboy will come along to tell us about it…….

          Snicker.

          • Jim Hunt says:

            Tommy – Given that they’re nearly 80 degrees north I suspect their internet connection doesn’t work at the speed of light.

            Whoever’s updating the web site is probably using “stock” photos lying around on their hard drive somewhere with a broadband connection.

          • sunsettommy says:

            Terrible excuse you make since they were able to send an “UPDATE” in the first place.

            They are in the same area they were in on August 25. They didn’t move far.

            LOL

          • Jim Hunt says:

            Tommy – Have you ever heard of the term “bandwidth”?

          • Colorado Wellington says:

            Bandwidth, eh? Do you keep stepping into the cow pies on purpose?

            “The strategy for any future northward progress had been to monitor the sea surface currents, sea ice, and weather conditions (both observed from the yachts and through satellites imagery downloaded onto our computers) …”

          • AndyG55 says:

            “Have you ever heard of the term “bandwidth”?”

            Yes Jimbo , you WASTE a lot of it with your moronic gibberish

    • terry says:

      And they decided to give up trying to reach the pole, 600 nm short…

  7. Jim Hunt says:

    What are you on about Tony?

    What’s this? Scotch mist?

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Famous Arctic explorer Admiral Hunt has shown that there is no more ice after the icebreakers get you out of the ice.

    • sunsettommy says:

      Jim boy, why did they end their attempt?

      Pen Hadow Gives Up- Blocked By Sea Ice!

      https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2017/08/31/pen-hadow-gives-up-blocked-by-sea-ice/

      Oh they didn’t say it that way,but it is clear with hardly any melting left to hope for,they can’t go on.

      • Jim Hunt says:

        Homewood gets it all wrong as usual. For the actual facts see:

        http://GreatWhiteCon.info/2017/07/pen-hadows-arctic-mission-to-sail-to-the-north-pole/

        Although the Sunday Times failed to mention it the expedition has a web site of its own.

        • Colorado Wellington says:

          They do have a web site, don’t they?

          “A meeting of the four skippers was held led by Erik de Jong, with Pen Hadow present, and it was agreed further northward progress would increase considerably the risks to the expedition, with very limited scientific reward. The decision to head south, back to an area of less concentrated sea ice in the vicinity of 79 degrees 30 minutes North, was made at 18.30 (Alaskan time).”

        • sunsettommy says:

          Yes,and Paul Homewood, QUOTED this from Pen’s own website:

          “Arctic Mission’s furthest North was 80 degrees 10 minutes North, 148 degrees 51 minutes West, reached at 22:04:12 (Alaskan Time, GMT-9hours) on 29 August 2017 by yachts, Bagheera and Snow Dragon II.

          Arctic Mission moored its yachts to an ice floe on 29 August to conduct one of its 24-hour marine science surveys, while drifting with the sea ice. The strategy for any future northward progress had been to monitor the sea surface currents, sea ice, and weather conditions (both observed from the yachts and through satellites imagery downloaded onto our computers), and decide how to proceed as we approached the end of the 24-hour survey.

          A meeting of the four skippers was held led by Erik de Jong, with Pen Hadow present, and it was agreed further northward progress would increase considerably the risks to the expedition, with very limited scientific reward.

          You are a joke,Jim!

          • RAH says:

            This why he switched from talking about the Arctic Mission and instead is talking about the Crystal Serenity I guess. A cruise ship with helicopter recon and ice breaker support. Two ice breakers when they need them. And a ship that never declared it would sail to the North Pole.

          • Jim Hunt says:

            I still cannot help but wonder what you’re smoking Tommy?

            Not a lot of people know that the “Arctic Mission Statement” says:

            The main purpose of Arctic Mission is intended to have value many years from now.

            Our expedition is going to explore, discover and share the stories of the spectacular marine wildlife – plants, animals and even bacteria – that live around the North Pole.

          • Jim Hunt says:

            Now I can’t help but wonder what you’re smoking RAH.

            I’ve been talking about both “expeditions” simultaneously for weeks.

          • Colorado Wellington says:

            Admiral Hunt, making sea ice out of fog.

          • RAH says:

            Haven’t smoked anything but tobacco for over 40 years and have been subjected to frequent piss tests to prove it.

            You were talking about the Arctic Mission last week but now your focus is on Crystal Serenity because the Arctic Mission has failed in it’s stated initial objective to sail to the north pole and may now fail even to accomplish it’s revised mission to sail around it. They are meandering around aimlessly right now claiming to be doing science when the fact is their asses are stuck and remain so unless the ice gods smile on them.

          • Jim Hunt says:

            RAH – Then what are you and Tommy doing that makes you both blind?

            At the risk of repeating myself, the Arctic Mission website states:

            The main purpose of Arctic Mission is intended to have value many years from now.

            Our expedition is going to explore, discover and share the stories of the spectacular marine wildlife – plants, animals and even bacteria – that live around the North Pole.

            ——————————————————-
            I see you failed to read down below on this blog post before posting the lie above.
            I posted snips that show what their website says now and what it said before.

            Before it said they were going to sail TOO the N. Pole. Now it says they will sail AROUND the N. Pole.
            Since you have previously claimed to have inside knowledge of the Arctic Mission the ONLY explanation for your post I’m replying to is that it is a bald faced lie.
            Now

            Little Jimbo, caught LYING THROUGH HIS A**E….. yet again

            Denial, Lying, sewer-level trolling… .. seems to be all he has in his pathetic slithering existence..

  8. Colorado Wellington says:

    Crystal Serenity sailed through ice-free Arctic assisted by only two icebreakers:

    RRS Ernest Shackleton
    CCGS Des Groseilliers

    Captain Vorland expertly weaved through the path provided by the two icebreakers.

  9. Anthony Bremner says:

    Their blog confirms the help of two icebreakers.

  10. Gonzo says:

    They also got a bit lucky by the shifting wind. The wind moved the ice to the east in the channel opening up their route. I wonder if there is potential charge to the customers for the extra help getting through the ice? They’re pretty much ice free from here.

    • sunsettommy says:

      No Gonzo,they are turning back:

      “Arctic Mission moored its yachts to an ice floe on 29 August to conduct one of its 24-hour marine science surveys, while drifting with the sea ice.

      This a feeble face saving attempt to spin their failed propaganda trip as a scientific success. Then they made up this flat out LIE!

      “Arctic Mission has demonstrated that commercial fishing and shipping vessels can now access and exploit a new, unexplored and vulnerable ocean region on the planet, the Central Arctic Ocean, due to the melting of its sea-ice cover. Approximately 1 million square kilometres of the Central Arctic Ocean is likely to have been ice-free this summer, having had year-round ice cover throughout human history until the 1980s, and likely has had for many tens of thousands of years.”

      It is a lie since there are a number of science papers showing little to NO Summer ice in the Arctic region for parts of this interglacial period.

      It is a lie today, since the ENTIRE Arctic region currently has a lot of ice in it:

      • Gonzo says:

        I was talking about the CS. The eastern channel up to Bellot Straight was choked pretty good until the wind started coming out of the NW which opened up the mouth of the straight. Plus it’s pretty amazing how much ice you can get through with an ice breaker. I watched a Mighty Ship episode about a Canadian icebreaker working the Newfoundland area in winter. Pretty amazing what they can do.

    Now Jimmy boy is trying to fog out of his hole he dug himself into:

    =========================================

    Here is what Pen and his jolly band stated from JULY:

    “Speaking to the BBC, Pen Hadow said if they reached the North Geographic Pole then it would be a “bittersweet” achievement.

    “If we can produce a visual image of a sail boat at 90 degrees north I think that could become an iconic image of the challenge that the 21st century faces,” said the explorer.

    “Are we serious about running this planet, which is actually what we need to start doing, and its bio-physical resources on a sustainable basis or are we just here for a laugh?”

    He said the teams would be assisted in choosing a route through the sea ice, and was confident they would achieve their goal.

    “I think it is quite possible with the assistance of a US Agency that have satellites that are going be helping us each day pick the best route through these ever narrowing cracks, and it is quite possible we will reach the North Geographic Pole,” he said.”

    He make clear of their main GOAL,get to the North Pole!

    You are indeed a thread fogger,Jim boy!

  12. RAH says:

    Same page now:

  13. nvw says:

    There is another ship of interest, “the plucky Polar Bound”.
    https://share.delorme.com/DavidCowper
    Polar Bound traversed the NWP last year east to west overwintered in SE Alaska and is now trying to head back eastward. Cowper is an experienced small boat captain, familiar with the area and appears to be without ice breaker support. If the NWP is open for small boat traffic, Cowper is a good bet to find it (armed of course with 24 hour internet,weather, and satellite updates).
    At present Polar Bound is holed up waiting and presumably keeping an eye on the ice behind its route before it commits to the Passage. Should be interesting.

  14. sunsettommy says:

    Jimboy, why did they lie hard on this?

    “Arctic Mission has demonstrated that commercial fishing and shipping vessels can now access and exploit a new, unexplored and vulnerable ocean region on the planet, the Central Arctic Ocean, due to the melting of its sea-ice cover. Approximately 1 million square kilometres of the Central Arctic Ocean is likely to have been ice-free this summer, having had year-round ice cover throughout human history until the 1980s, and likely has had for many tens of thousands of years.”

    1) There are a number of Science papers published showing evidence of little to NO sea ice during the Summer.

    2) That there were several THOUSAND years of such conditions, in the early part of the Interglacial period.

    They lied on purpose,Jimmy?

  15. Steelman says:

    It’s all a scam. Sad thing is that the purpose is served, cause most people, just read the headlines. Just by announcing they are going to sail to the NP, the average news reader thinks; wow, is it that bad, is all the ice gone? They don’t announce their retreat in the same, big manner, and voila, purpose served.
