Instead of the North Baffin Bay
the Amundsen did turn away.
“Too much ice in July,
all our models awry.”
Must break Ice down in Hudson’s ice bay.
A carefully planned, 115-day scientific expedition on board the floating research vessel, the CCGS Amundsen, has been derailed as the icebreaker was called to help resupply ships navigate heavy ice in Hudson Bay.
“Obviously it has a large impact on us,” says Martin Fortier, executive director of ArcticNet, which coordinates research on the vessel. “It’s a frustrating situation.”
During the summer, the Amundsen operates as a floating research center studying climate change with experiments running 24 hours a day. This year it was scheduled to reach North Baffin Bay.

For he who reports is a mole.
The early arrival of winter caused some yachts to be frozen in
There is more evidence of the coming “little ice age at:
The winter came fast to the Arctic.
Some yachters’ reaction? Lethargic.
They believed global warming
and ignored every warning.
Their faith beat their judgment – it’s tragic.
News item from Sail – world.com:
The Northwest Passage after decades of so-called global warming has a dramatic 60% more Arctic ice this year than at the same time last year. The future dreams of dozens of adventurous sailors are now threatened. A scattering of yachts attempting the legendary Passage are caught by the ice, which has now become blocked at both ends and the transit season may be ending early.

In fact, the Arctic has been colder than normal every day this year since May 6:
The situation is no better in the Antarctic:
It is clear that this year is a year with increasing ice cover. This is yet another sign of the upcoming little ice age, predicted by the behavior of the Sun.
