AFP - 17 Mar 09 (Excerpt) “Three British explorers trying to ski to the North Pole to measure the thickness of sea ice only have one day's food left as bad weather hampers supply flights, the mission said Tuesday. Project director and ice team leader Pen Hadow and his colleagues Martin Hartley and Ann Daniels are now down to half rations and fighting to survive in brutal sub-zero weather conditions. "We’re hungry, the cold is relentless, our sleeping bags are full of ice and, because we’re not moving, the colder we get," Hadow said Tuesday in a statement from the London headquarters of the Catlin Arctic Survey." http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hc8Voa_9mGkiKk_29RP_fWy4ld0Q
 

Note: The expedition was undertaken because the explorers believe global warming will melt away the North Pole. “The ice cap is in danger and melting at an accelerating rate,” the explorers said. The survey will ”help to determine the lifespan of the ice cap.”
