It’s good to see this getting around. This is Mark Steyn in The Spectator commenting on Eco-warriors stranded in the Antarctic! It’s too good to be true. Here even a comic genius like Mark Steyn has trouble adding to the absurdity of the original plot, but at least he tries:
On Douglas Mawson’s original voyage, he and his surviving comrade wound up having to eat their dogs. I’m not sure there were any on this expedition, so they’d probably have to make do with the Guardian reporters. Forced to wait a year to be rescued, Sir Douglas later recalled, ‘Several of my toes commenced to blacken and fester near the tips.’ Now there’s a man who’s serious about reducing his footprint.
But there is more and you should naturally read the lot as I am sure you will.
