Canada’s trans-Arctic sea route remains
clogged with ice

 __________________



1 Aug 09 - Despite predictions by the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center of a near-record meltdown by the end of this summer, the Canadian Ice Service says pockets of more extensive winter freezing and concentrations of thicker, older ice at several key “choke points” are complicating ship travel in the Northwest Passage this year.

“In the southern route,” Canadian Ice Service officials told Canwest News Service, the agency “has observed more ice coverage than normal. This is partly due to the fact that the ice in the Amundsen Gulf consolidated this past winter, which is something it didn’t do in 2007 and 2008.”

The result, said the CIS, is that ice conditions “are delaying any potential navigability of the Northwest Passage this year."

          The last third of the article goes on talk about predictions that the
          ice will soon disappear. As Michael says, "I love the way they keep
          rehashing the old Groucho line: Who are you going to believe? Me
          or your lying eyes?"
