To which theory of gravity do you subscribe?
LOL, you can't "pass" peer review. Its not a test. Publishing opens it up to more peer review, that review is not even started.

I like the theory of space pushing in because a large mass object occupies the space. Not sure what one is correct thou. Don't really study it.

implies that 'they' made the trip for some reason other than to bring attention to MMGW, thereby demonstrating either your lack of knowledge (ignorance) about the project, and/or an attempt to mislead or miseducate others by a (deliberate?, or just 'blissful'?) misrepresentation of the project.
Then the thread should be deleted as this forum does not have a political sub-forum. The thread is purely political in nature.

Re: Northwest Passage - 2016

Oh goody. Another thread morphs into a global warming debate.

Soooooo....., with that out of the way;

Driving a fossil fuelled stinky polluting boat through a pristine Arctic wilderness area in order to highlight the dangers of climate change is akin to shooting a stranger in order to highlight the danger of guns.

Don't mind me standing in the corner watching the show
The NWP was open in 2016. Several yachts and cruise ships transited it.

Case closed.

Next spring we can have a NWP -2017 thread.

It was not until someone started making political statements. It was about yachts in the NWP.

The owner is a very humble and wise man, and yet the reporter took the advantage of it.

I found her News article is a bit biased towards Asians; it is just sad. Obviously, she does not have a clue about sailing in general. Although this is common themes on the internet as Asia gaining power in the world arena. But I know these will subside with time.

For those who want to know, they reported that they didn't see any ice until the last part of their NWP. EQII has left Pond Inlet last Sunday (Sept 11) sailing towards Ilulissat, Greenland.

Its not the first time, and far from the last.
That being said, jimmy cronell was unable to even get thru the NWP a few years ago, so every few years it opens.

FYI its been 19 years since the earth has warmed..... but then you already know that.

Cornell went through last year

Thank you! - Cornell Sailing Events & Publications

Do tell where you got this misinformation about 19 years of no warming?

Satellites don't lie.

Cornell failed on his first attempt, supporting what I said, that it opens every few years, as it historically has. So far no less ice then there has ever been. We have only been tracking it for a very very very short period of time, just like the global temperatures tracked from satellites.
As for ground temperature tracks, I have never seen a bigger joke in meteorological science then the retroactive temperature manipulation.

Really interesting. I invite you to come with me to CERN and look at the effects of quantum fluctuation vacuum. Yes it can be observed!

Obviously.

This statement does not make sense at all. Actually it is an oxymoron.

It's obvious that you do not understand the word "Theory". Maybe it is a good idea to google "define: scientific theory" to get some background.

May I ask your expertise of the Arctic? As one who lives here, 70 deg N, I've seen the change during decades how much the climate has warmed up. There's no question, just hard facts about it as the summers are longer and winters milder than before.

Personal observation is irrelevant due to the fact that your memories are unreliable, as are all peoples memories. You cannot see or observe global warming using your body, your personal observations, or your memory of events. Reason being, we are talking 1/10ths of a degree over several decades.
