SWIM AT THE NORTH POLE ?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Sporting just a cap, trunks and goggles, Lewis Gordon Pugh will swim 1 km (0.6 miles) in water at a temperature of minus 1.8 degrees Celsius on July 15, a dip he expects to last 21 minutes.
Such a swim would have been impossible as little as 10 years ago because the water would have been frozen, Pugh says.
"Most people have no idea that you can find patches of open sea at the North Pole in summer," said Pugh, who set the record for the coldest human swim off Antarctica at 0 degrees Celsius.
"I can't think of a better way to show that climate change is a reality than by swimming in a place that should be totally frozen over. I hope it will ... put pressure on the leaders of the G8 summit to cut carbon emissions dramatically," he said in a statement. . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . .THE ABOVE EXERPT FROM A REUTERS NEWS ITEM IS JUST ONE OF MANY EVENTS THAT ARE HAPPENING WORLD WIDE THAT PROVE THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS ALREADY HERE . . . . . .WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IS UP TO YOU . . . . . .AND YOU . . . . .
