Arctic trekkers encounter severe irony

Posted by Richard on June 4, 2005

This item at Samizdata.net provided the best laugh I’ve had in a while:

An attempt by two men from northern Minnesota to cross the Arctic Ocean to call attention to global warming ended this morning because of poor weather conditions.

Lonnie Dupre, 43, and Eric Larsen, 33, were forced to abandon their planned 100-day, 1,200-mile trek after encountering unexpectedly heavy snow storms, strong winds and unusual ice conditions, according to Jane Kochersperger, a media officer with the environmental group Greenpeace, which co-sponsored the trip.

Some things just speak for themselves.

You can’t make up a story better than that.
