[Yet another alarmist visits the Arctic and nearly freezes to death; also warns children that it's too warm up there] | Money | The Guardian
When Antony Jinman fell through Arctic ice into water when the temperature was -35C (-31F), he thought he might be in trouble. "That's about twice as cold as a household freezer," he says. "When you get out of water when it is that cold, your clothes instantly freeze, like concrete, so speed is important." Jinman rolled around on the floor trying to get the moisture off himself, then his colleagues quickly helped him into a tent where they used pliers to prise apart his laces so they could get his boots off. Eventually, he warmed up and managed to avoid frostbite.

The 29-year-old from Plymouth is a polar explorer and spends much of his time in the Arctic, leading expeditions with the aim of inspiring and educating children about global climate change through his company Education Through Expeditions.
...One Inuit friend told me that his bay was still free of ice months after it should have frozen over. Seeing these changes first-hand has eroded any scepticism I might have had about climate change."
"...If you lose a glove or the stove won't light, or you get frostbit or a tent-pole blows away and you can't erect your tent, it can be very bad."

After the Climate-gate scandal broke, Lord Christopher Monckton, a former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, said of the scientists at Britain's Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia and those they worked with: "They're criminals." He also called them "huckstering snake-oil salesmen and 'global warming' profiteers."

Like the scientists who lived off the grant money they received from scaring us to death with manipulated data, others hope to profit off perhaps the greatest scam of all time.
