Gee whiz, perhaps they should send the “assessment experts” in on a flipping ICE BREAKER, and then the situation would work itself out.
Then again, this is perfectly natural, right(?), and there have been thousands of years of nobody even noticing that some critters are in peril, and they either survivied, or perished, completely without ANY human intervention whatever.
And include Barney Frank. He can fart enough hot air to melt most of the icecap, as long as his butt is uncapped.
