You just can't make up stuff this good.

"A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite. The explorers, Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen, on Saturday called off what was intended to be a 530-mile trek across the Arctic Ocean after Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold temperatures drained the batteries in some of their electronic equipment.

"Ann said losing toes and going forward at all costs was never part of the journey," said Ann Atwood, who helped organize the expedition.
...

"The explorers had planned to call in regular updates to school groups by satellite phone, and had planned online posts with photographic evidence of global warming."

I love this quote from the article:

"They were experiencing temperatures that weren't expected with global warming," Atwood said. "But one of the things we see with global warming is unpredictability."

See? Even the extreme cold is still caused by global warming! It's all global warming. Be very afraid!!!

I noticed that quote too when I read the article, and my thought was that no matter what the evidence, it points to global warming. In this case, the evidence is that they didn't find what they were expecting, so now "unpredictability" is evidence of global warming.
