Re: Explorers to Retrace Shackleton's Epic Antarctic Journey
"Jarvis, who is also an environmental scientist, hopes to use the trip to bring awareness to the impact of climate change."
This explains the why, its not so much about Shackleton's journey as it is about the
global warming narrative.
So they are going to be followed by a carbon belching, whale crushing, seal disturbing
bird scaring ship just in case they need to have their a$$es saved from the effects of mother nature.
