Impact of Climate Change Canceled Climate Change Study

Impact of Climate Change Canceled Climate Change Study

A $17 million study of climate change in the Canadian Arctic has been nixed for now– because of climate change.

 A team of scientists from the University of Manitoba and four other schools were in the middle east of the first leg of a four-year study of how climate change is affecting the areas around the Hudson Bay, the University said in Statement. The study, named BaySys, started last month, and the scientists were traveling on the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen.

 But because of warmer temperatures in the Arctic, hazardous sea ice is traveling farther south than usual. The Amundsen, which is part of the Canadian Coast Guard fleet, has been diverted several times because its ice-breaking capabilities have been needed to help out in rescue efforts along Newfoundland’s northeast coast. All of the delays and concerns about safety forced the cancellation of the study’s first leg.
