You can't make it up XCVIII - global warming study postponed because of ice (14 jun 17)

"It was clear it was from the Arctic, I just needed to be among the ice to see it," said Dr. Barber. "What was also clear to me was that climate change has caused this event to happen."

Essentially, the Arctic ice, because of climate change, is having its thickness reduced which in turn allows the ice to become more mobile. The ice was able to escape the Arctic to the Labrador current and make its way south. Barber says that situation works as a microcosm that showcases the need for Canada to start planning for the transformation climate change is, and will, bring, as it will affect our everyday activities and trade routes. "We're really at the beginning of this," said Barber. "It's only going to get worse."

If your theory didn't predict what happens, then you shoehorn what actually happens into your theory, it's called "hindcasting" or "rationalisation".
