    that can’t be true….we were told the ice was all melted…
    I’ve been to Bell Is….very nice place … summer!

    Some of the comments that the article generated are mind-boggling:

    Well, there are literally thousands of government funded studies predicting this very situation due to global warming yet the Minister seem to have no knowledge of such conditions or have the simple sense to ensure backup plans are in place.

    It turns out this was predicted by the climate modelers:

    Statistical Projections of Ocean Climate Indices offNewfoundland and Labrador

    NOT HERE: The decline in sea-ice extent off Newfoundland and Labrador ranges from 20 to 77% of the average (0.4–1.5 × 105 km2), and the reduction in the number of icebergs at 48°N off Newfoundland ranges from 30% to nearly 100% of the norm at this latitude. Despite differences among the models and scenarios, statistical projections indicate that conditions in this region will reach or exceed their maxima (sea surface temperature, bottom ocean temperature) and reach or fall below their minima (sea-ice extent, number of icebergs) that were observed during the course of monitoring activities over the past 30–60 years, possibly as early as 2040.

    BUT HERE, IN THE “FINE PRINT”: We note, however, that the statistical relationships based on historical data may not hold in the future because of the changing influence of input from Arctic waters and because of large uncertainties in projected air temperatures from GCMs.

    How many thousands of dollars went into this research? They could have saved a lot of time, money and ink by just publishing the disclaimer.

      How would they have gotten paid if they just published the disclaimer and how would they have justified future funding?

    They just keep on piling the dung higher and higher. This one was on my newsfeed concerning Florida!

    So many lies and so little time.

    From the article:

    “We’re all at the mercy of Mother Nature, and we feel for the people who are stranded there.”

    Climate heritics!

    Join the club :)

  6. Scarface says:

    It couldn’t be the cold arctic, right? Because it’s getting warmer and warmer there, right?

    Oh wait, it didn’t.

    When climate change Lysenkoism faces reality.

  8. DCA says:

    And if you go back to the NOAA pixel map of February surface temps, they show this area as either Near Normal or Above Normal.Somebody should let the stranded residents know that the worst ice they’ve seen in 30 years is the result of such balmy weather.

  9. John of Cloverdale, Western Australia says:

    Well at least the new vessel has half the carbon footprint of the old ferry.
    “In January, Peter Woodward, president of the Woodward Group, said the Qajaq had half the horsepower and half the carbon footprint of the Apollo, burning half the fuel of the old ferry, but that the Qajaq had two ice-strengthened bows.”

      Unreal. I’m an avid skier in N.E. and keep close attention to conditions here and in the west. Three really good years in a row now in the US (and the Alps). They really are just making shit up.
