The ghost scientists on the Arctic expedition that never happened

imageMany vessels on dignified missions have gone down to watery graves in the challenging Arctic Sea.

Without the disinfectant of sunlight, the Canadian icebreaker and research ship Amundsen will remain lost in the permanent fog of yet another Global Warming fraud.

Known and even famous for plowing its way through ice for others, the Amundsen has been played a Ship of Fools.


Thanks to a roving band of 300 scientists—who were not even where they were reported to be—Canada has now become Al Gore’s top student in Global Warming Hype’s Class of 2010.

Undated “breaking news” from the Winnipeg Free Press with quotes used very similar to those of BBC correspondent David Shukman after a voyage of the Amundsen during the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2008, the world was warned that the sea ice in Canada’s fragile Arctic is melting more quickly than ice cream on an August afternoon.

“University of Manitoba Prof. David Barber, the lead investigator of the Circumpolar Flaw Lead System study, said the rapid decay of thick Arctic Sea ice highlights the rapid pace of climate change in the North and forecasts what will come in the south.” (Winnipeg Free Press, 2/06/2010).

“We’re seeing it happen more quickly than what our models thought would happen,” Barber said at a student symposium on climate change at FortWhyte Alive.  “It’s happening much faster than our most pessimistic models suggested.”

Barber said the melting sea ice could be compared to disappearing rainforests.

It was not this winter but another-during the peak of global warming hype and before Climategate—when “more than 300 scientists from around the globe” braved winter’s blast on the Amundsen in the Arctic, all to study the impact of climate change.

We don’t know if the downed martinis drowned out all sense of geography during this voyage because the Amundsen—nowhere near the Arctic on February 6, 2010—was preoccupied doing icebreaking duty as usual on the the St. Lawrence River!

Funny how reader Paul Pekarek, who had checked the Canadian Coast Guard website, which confirmed indeed that the Amundsen was on the St. Lawrence, never heard back from the Winnipeg Free Press.

And as Canada Free Press (CFP) reader Jim Vanne points out, the logistics of this fateful Arctic trip are a tad off.  The Amundsen has a total complement of 10 officers, 26 enlisted men—and only 26 additional berths: “Presumably this expedition was doubly politically correct, in that not only were these scientists checking global warming, but they must have all been gay, as they were sleeping a dozen per bed.  Even better than the gay penguins story!”

The Feb. 6, 2010 expedition of the Amundsen that never happened would be the Global Warming joke of all time were it not for the fact that the Canadian government provided $156 million for the Circumpolar Flaw Lead System study.

When will the Canadian government and other governments ever learn?

The last time Canadians went circumpolaring during former Governor-General Adrienne Clarkson’s $1-million, 2003 taxpayer-paid tour, reason of which she haughtily described as “to affirm our Northern identity”, UN poster boy and carbon credit booster Maurice Strong was one of the passengers.

Now that man-made Global Warming has been exposed worldwide as an utter fraud, it is time for the Canadian Government to bring the Amundsen back in out of the fog.

    Thank You, Canada, for exposing another huge fraud in the continueing HOAX! Canadian tax-payers are being swindled by the same con-artists.
