You have to smile

On the one hand, you get a group of students preparing for "a once-in-a-lifetime journey to the South Pole to see the effects of climate change for themselves."

On the other hand, you get Dutch researcher Machiel Lamers in the paper with: "Eco-tourists blamed for melting polar ice caps." Eco-tourists travelling to Antarctica are adding to global warming which is melting the polar ice caps, we are told.

Mind you, if these students really wanted to see the effects of "climate change" for themselves, surely all they have to do is look out the window.
