Climate change again rears its ugly head

From the Winnipeg Free Press

The University of Manitoba’s multi-year, multi-million dollar climate change study has been put on ice for a year — because of climate change itself.

David Barber, the university’s renowned Arctic researcher, and chief scientist of the BaySys project, said 40 scientists on the Canadian icebreaker CCGS Amundsen made the decision to postpone the $17 million project until next year after two weeks onboard because they realized the ship was needed elsewhere due to the continued extreme ice conditions in southern waters around Newfoundland and Labrador.

Emphasis mine.

The ice is too damn thick.

Of course later they say…

But Barber said once out on the water the scientists realized this wasn’t the usual sea ice, which would be relatively easy for the icebreaker to plow through, but thicker ice from further north which had broken off because of climate change.

If the Ice is to thin, it’s climate change. To thick? Climate change.

Climate change is the chameleon of science it can be whatever you want it to be.
