Canada – “Extreme” sea ice prevents crucial deliveries to isolated communities

Early arrival of sea ice

Authorities in Canada’s Arctic north are scrambling to transport critical supplies to three communities – Paulatuk, Kugluktuk and Cambridge Bay – after the early arrival of sea ice prevented delivery barges from reaching the region.

The three isolated communities, with a combined population of nearly 3,000, have been unable to receive shipments of food, fuel and lumber after ice sealed off the Amundsen Gulf.

The government plans to airlift nearly 600,000 litres of diesel fuel to ensure sufficient reserves to weather the bitterly cold winter. The operation is expected to involve 50 to 60 flights.

“This is absolute ridiculous,” said Joh Holland, a municipal representative from Paulatuk. “We’ve got people waiting for food. We’ve got hunters waiting for vehicles.”

The ice has been described by officials as “extreme.” Even the Canadian coast guard’s largest icebreaker in the region – the Louis St Laurent – was unable to help break open a channel for the barges.

In Paulatuk, the shelves of the grocery store are quickly becoming bare as nonperishable items like flour quickly disappear.

That's so right Chris, step back a few years in movie world and all has already been revealed. Edge of Darkness movie seems highly believable, as an example.

and it's only going to get worse,-say science in movies. The global warm up interference will Cause the Ice Age by snap freezing Everything, 101 below zero.- in The Day After Tomorrow movie. Then 2 yrs later, out comes Al Gore franticly promoting his own damage control, warm up movie.
