What is wrong with this logic?
WHY WE’RE HERE
The Mainstream Last First adventure began earlier this month, when Paul Gleeson, Frank Wolf, Denis Barnett and I set out on our attempt to become the first people to cross the 3,000-km Northwest Passage in a single season using human power.
Not going to happen.
We are rowing a purposebuilt, 25-foot rowboat on a journey to highlight issues of climate change and arctic sovereignty, as well as the historical significance of the route to Canada.
Yes, the Arctic climate is much colder than it was 70 years ago.
Our destination is Pond Inlet, Nunavut, on the east coast of Baffin Island, and we are hoping to make it there by early fall after 90 days along a route that is only recently navigable because of the Arctic’s melting ice.
That ice crushing your boat doesn’t look melted. The route is historically navigated, but is only recently navigable. Pass the choom, please.
