LOL: Global Warming Study Cancelled Because of ‘Unprecedented’ Ice

The amount of irony you’re about to witness is not to be taken lightly. You’re going to want to be firmly seated so you don’t fall over while you’re laughing. 

A Canadian global warming study had to come to a quick end after the researchers on board were forced to use their icebreaker vessel to… well… break ice. 

The study, entitled BaySys, is a $17-million four-year-long program headed by the University of Manitoba. It was planning to conduct the third leg of its research by sending 40 scientists from five Canadian universities out into the Bay on the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen to study “contributions of climate change and regulation on the Hudson Bay system.” 

Unfortunately, the ship was forced to abandon its mission after the Canadian Coast Guard requested that the icebreaker be used to help fishing vessels and cargo ships from the “unprecedented ice.” 

That’s it. That’s all the research they need. There is “unprecedented ice” in the summer. Everyone can go home.  Read More >
