Posted on 01/25/2014 4:51:17 PM PST by Libloather
In the spring of 2015, Alex Bellini will fly to Greenland, jump on an iceberg, and live there until it melts.
As the chunk of ice floats southward to its thawing doom, he'll witness his new home get smaller and smaller until it is no more and he finds himself adrift in the ocean. He hopes to raise awareness of climate change and global warming, and to draw parallels between his mission and the broader human condition. The main challenge, however, will be finding ways to kill time; he'll be there for up to 12 months, the limit he's set on the task. It sounds tough, but Bellini's got a pretty solid track record when it comes to weird endurance stunts.

You need to define job. In my opinion, a job is something you can make a living from. I make a living as an adventurer, since there are some sponsors that invest money in my adventures. Many firms fund me because they want me as a brand ambassador who conveys their corporate values in a clear way.
Because it's a totally new thing for the ocean to grow warmer as one progresses southward from the Arctic.
whats he guano doo cuz fecal matter will enhance melting
Um—icebergs have always floated towards the equator and melted along the way. This in no way demonstrates “global warming.” Icebergs were probably even doing this during the great ice ages.
He needs a companion for the trip. Maybe send a polar bear with him........ or worse, send algore.
Icebergs like to roll over with no warning ,D’oh
It has always been a puzzle to me that animals that are so large, strong, and vicious can appear so cuddly and adorable.
Why do bears have to be so cute?
Oh, he will probably make enough to retire on selling
his books to global warming folks.
After he pays back whoever rescues his sorry butt.
Maybe it would be fun with Sandra Fluke!
Great point, Mom.
Silly econazi! *snort* Doesn’t he know that by spring 2015 there won’t BE any icebergs?
Waiting for him to get stuck like that Antarctic vessel and their global warming expedition. See ya in 30 years!
Send a polar bear and Al Gore.The bear will need some rolaids after finishing Gore-too greasy.
Another enviro-idiot that needs to get a real job.
Gotta be the dumbtruck of the new year.
Hope he takes along a whole iceberg full of fellow leftist sympathizers with him along for the “cool’ party ride.
Ha, ha, ha, until it melts? No, until he tires of waiting for it to melt and he abandons ship in 12 months. It could continue drifting around out there for years and this joker wouldn’t tell us about it.
Once he hits the water he’ll freeze in no time.
Speaking of freezing... presumably he’ll have a shelter and be cooking his food, both of which will melt the iceberg.
