Last summer the global warming alarmists were predicting an ice-free arctic. One environmental activist vowed to kayak to the north pole to highlight the dangerous global warming.

Kayaking to the North Pole! Reminds me of a funny story from long ago here in the SF Bay Area. Some guy announced he was going to paddle a rubber boat across the Pacific Ocean, to visit his girlfriend in Vietnam. The morning news had him leaving Berkeley, crossing the bay, and showed him out in the Pacific, past the Golden Gate Bridge.

Then the tide turned (we have huge tides because the whole bay connects to the ocean through the narrow Golden Gate). The evening news revealed that the poor goop had been sucked back into the Bay, and deposited very close to his starting point...
