Tankers Trapped In Midsummer Arctic Sea Ice!

Shipping in the Gulf of Ob is paralysed and the situation complicated, icebreaker company Rosatomflot says. | The Independent Barents Observer


“THE global warming, which there has been so much talk about for such a long time, seems to have receded a little and we are returning to the standards of the 1980’s and 1990’s…”
― Andrey Smirnov (Icebreaker company rep)

Via The Barents Observer :

It is late June, but the winter has not abandoned the Gulf of Ob. The shallow bay, which houses two of Russia’s biggest Arctic out-shipment terminals for oil and gas, remains packed with fast ice.

It has created a  complicated situation, Rosatomflot says. The state company which manages the Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers, confirms that  independent shipping in the area is «paralysed» and that LNG carriers and tankers are stuck.

The shipping companies had expected the Gulf of Ob to be free of ice in the course of June and that icebreaker assistance would not be necessary. They were wrong.

According to Rosatomflot, there appears to be a need for icebreaker services in the area at least until after the first week of July. There are currently two nuclear-powered icebreakers in the Gulf of Ob, the «Taymyr» and the «Vaygach». In addition, there are several smaller tugs and icebreakers working in the waters around the Sabetta port.

According to the icebreaker company, this is the first summer in four years that the Gulf of Ob is packed with this much ice.

«The global warming, which there has been so much talk about for such a long time, seems to have receded a little and we are returning to the standards of the 1980s and 1990s,» says company representative Andrey Smirnov.

STEFFEN claims a melting arctic and The emission of methane from the Arctic Ocean would wreak financial havoc…

“Warming is strongest in the northern high latitudes … An example is the loss of Arctic sea ice, which contributes to the thawing of the permafrost under the East Siberian Sea.” “Recent observations show that methane is beginning to bubble up … as the Arctic sea ice continues to retreat and the region continues to warm.”  

  • The release of the East Siberian Sea methane would lead to impacts worth about US$60 trillion (by comparison, the total value of the world’s economy in 2012 was about US$70 trillion, and the value of the Australian economy is about US$1.5 trillion).

CURRENT ARCTIC SEA-ICE CONDITIONS

Via Tony Heller :

Arctic sea ice thickness has been increasing for the past twelve years, and is up 44% since 2012. I calculated this by dividing DMI volume by MASIE extent.  (The MASIE records only go back to 2006.).

The Arctic Basin is covered with thick ice.

This is a change from ten years ago, when much of the Arctic was covered with thin ice.

ARCTIC sea-ice is increasing in thickness and volume as CO2 increases. The EXACT opposite of “CO2 greenhouse gas theory” and the EXACT opposite of what global warming climate change alarmists have been promising you all these years!

THE END IS NIGH

WHAT other climate change lies and falsehoods do politicians, fake scientists and the Climate Crisis Industry spin in order to push their misanthropic, anti-energy agenda of power and control?

HOW many more trillions of dollars of the public’s hard-earned money must be spent, worldwide, on windmills and solar panels? Symbolic ‘energy’ sources that are destroying economies, the environment and peoples’ livelihoods, all to appease the U.N. climate gods and massage the egos of the eco-elite.

WHEN do we finally call an end to this virtue-signalling eco-madness? Or are too many reputations and egos now at stake? Let alone the eco-trillions of taxpayers money available in an instant without question, immune to scrutiny and accountability.

WHAT a scam, what a hoax, what a sick, sad joke is “man-made global warming climate change”.
