A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite.

The explorers, Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen, on Saturday called off what was intended to be a 530-mile trek across the Arctic Ocean after Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold temperatures drained the batteries in some of their electronic equipment.

What do you expect at the North Pole?
Well, I would expect it to be cold, but since global warming is a faith-based philosophy, apparently they did not. People have been going to the Poles now for a hundred years or so; you'd think there would be plenty of other people experience to draw on.

They did, however, manage to spin the fact that it was unexpectedly cold on global warming:

Atwood said there was some irony that a trip to call attention to global warming was scuttled in part by extreme cold temperatures.
"They were experiencing temperatures that weren't expected with global warming," Atwood said. "But one of the things we see with global warming is unpredictability."
