    This is just one example of many which the carbon tax lobby will never acknowledge when they brag about these Northern Passage cruises by global warming activists...that failed for the most part even though they have been assisted by icebreakers that kept part of the shipping lanes open.
    1940 is a historically significant date for the RCMP:
    Historically relevant dates to the RCMP | Royal Canadian Mounted Police

    • June 23, 1940: The RCMP St. Roch leaves Vancouver for its historic voyage through the Northwest Passage.
    • October 11, 1942: The St. Roch arrives in Halifax from Vancouver after two years spent navigating the Northwest Passage.
    • October 16, 1944: RCMP Schooner St. Roch arrives at Vancouver having traversed arctic waters through Lancaster Sound and Barrow Strait in 86 days (departed Halifax on July 22, 1944). She became the first vessel to traverse the Northwest Passage in both directions.

    And they sailed through not just once, but in both directions with a wooden vessel beginning 1940 through 1944. Imagine the hype the climate lobby would create if that would have been today.

    imho the AGW folks are on the way out. Like, this just came out:

    Three Climate Change Questions Answered

    1) is the scientific community really united?, 2) can solar and wind take over any time soon to provide the required vital energy for the maintenance of modern civilization in today's world of 7 billion people?, and 3) has CO2 caused any harm yet? The answer to all three questions is no.

    A major theme of this essay is that many assertions can easily be checked out by a simple Google search...

    The idea being if even GOOGLE is backing off then it must mean AGW's days are truly numbered...

    Two years to navigate the Northwest Passage?

    Mission Accomplished: Crystal Serenity Completes 32-Day Northwest Passage Journey

    LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--More than three years after the inception of the immensely ambitious plan to transit the Northwest Passage, Crystal Cruises’ luxury cruise ship Crystal Serenity has completed the epic undertaking, arriving in New York City this morning. The successful voyage marks the first of its kind made by a large luxury cruise ship. For 32 days and 7,297 nautical miles, more than 1,000 guests and 600 crew members witnessed the remote Arctic waterways and terrain that was inaccessible just over 100 years ago.

    St. Roch was made primarily of thick Douglas-fir, with very hard Australian "ironbark" eucalyptus on the outside, and an interior hull reinforced with heavy beams to withstand ice pressure during her Arctic duties. St. Roch was designed by Tom Hallidie and was based on Roald Amundsen's ship Maud.[4]

    St. Roch (ship) - Wikipedia

    The St. Roch was based on the design of the herring boat that Amundsen reinforced to withstand the Arctic Ice. A boat, not at all a ship.

    American Thinker? A dipshit 'Conservative' site, hardly a credible source on information concerning any scientific subject.

    Ha ha ha,

    they used a LOT of technology help with Satellites, ice breakers and small ship. At times there were concern they wouldn't make it.

    They made it by ONE day despite all that help.

    A typical ad hom. which means you can't answer the article, which is another reason why warmists like you are losing the argument.

    That was my take too, the fact that poor Rocky was afraid to talk about how easy it was to refute AGW by just googling it.

    He has been posting the UAH Satellite temperature chart, that destroys the AGW conjecture lately, wonder why he would do that?
