Explorers Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen called off their trip to the North Pole to highlight global warming this past weekend. The reason? Extreme cold that led to frostbite! According to this article, organizer Ann Atwood said, “They were experiencing temperatures that weren’t expected with global warming.”
Of course, rather than acknowledge that crisis-level warming is a flawed theory, Atwood wrote off the cold to the “unpredictability factor” that “comes with warming.” Sure, that… or maybe they’re just dead wrong.
Well, not dead wrong literally, thank goodness. Despite some frostbite, the two explorers made it out without major casualties or losses. But are they swayed by their experience with the North Pole’s genuine cold? Not at all. They plan to try again another time. Maybe next time they should limit themselves to a Ford Explorer, complete with a van rack.
