The North Pole Has Melted … and I Kinda Want to Vomit


That navigation buoy is located at the North pole. The actual North pole. Instead of being encased in ice, however, it’s floating in the water. The North pole is now open water. We are a different planet – a planet without polar ice caps.




I don’t know how you guys feel about it, but the fact that this sort of Santa-drowning North pole cataclysm is happening on my watch – on the very first day of my watch as Gas 2 editor! – and not on Chris‘ has me more than a little apprehensive about the rest of the weekend. So, yeah – have fun out there. Maybe punch a climate change denier in the mouth for me, while you’re at it. You know, for me.

Also: Mike Huckabee. Punch that guy right in the neck.
