Global-warming is not visible in the North-West Passage this
year. It must be weather, not climate.

A yacht sunk.

Cruise ships give up.

There is something unusual going on in the Northwest Passage at
Fort Ross on the east end of the Bellot Sraight. Fourteen vessels
have gathered - two pleasure craft, one cargo vessel and ELEVEN
passenger vessels/cruise ships. There are three ways out for
them and all are now currently blocked by at least 70-80% ice
as the melt season seems to have wound down early this year -
though still melting in more southerly areas - and wind and
currents have been pushing more ice into some places.

This is not unexpected as recent reaearch on Bering sea ice coverage shows that it has been increasing in line with the drop in northern hemishere solar insolation as we move towards the next glacial inception. Increased atmospheric CO2 may or may delay glacial inception -we just dont1 know DESMODUS
