Russian Sailors Making Fun Of Brainless American Climate Alarmists

Russian Northern Sea Route (NSR) dreams and fantasies are like Arctic ice, they just don’t melt away, however fruitless they come to be. Here’s latest: “Russia seeks to open its Arctic waters to world shipping”

Ice-free Northern Sea Route, again. I am not joking. – Maritime Bulletin

    The yearning for an open Arctic passage is pathetic and has been so for a long time.
    In the early 1600s map makers as well as other writers insisted that such a passage could be found.
    England just had to have a lower-cost route to spices.
    Also in the 1600s Eskimos and kayaks were seen off of the Orkney Island and as far south as Hull.

    A dose of reality: Here’s the 2018 report on Northern Sea Route activity from Arctic Today.
    “Overall, Russia’s Arctic sea ports handled 92.7 million tons, of which 70 percent were related to liquefied natural gas and oil, according to the Ministry of Transport. The region’s largest port remains Murmansk, which saw 60.7 million tons of cargo; its highest figure since 2010. The busiest port along the NSR continues to be Sabetta, where Novatek’s Yamal LNG facility is located, where volumes increased by 30 percent to 17.4 million tons, explains Nikolai Monko, Deputy Director of the Northern Sea Route Administration.

    In total, the route saw 164 different companies navigate on the route, including 45 foreign ones. Transit traffic also saw its highest figure since 2013 with 491,000 tons and 26 voyages between Europe and Asia. This compares to 194,000 tons on 27 transits the previous year.”
    Note that these figures are achieved using cargo ships that are classified as icebreakers.

    30 transits of the NSR in 2018 by 27 ships. That has to be less than the current CO2 concentration.

    At any point, Marine Traffic routinely is tracking 200,000 vessels. A long haul China to Los Angeles takes 2-3 weeks, so maybe you get 15-20 long voyages per long haul ship…so conservatively there are 5 MILLION voyages per year…and thirty, 30, went by NSR.

    6 per million via NSR. 0.0006%.
