A couple days after the world got news of the arctic researchers under siege by polar bears (one of whom ate their dog), a passing ship sent help. “A helicopter took off from the Akademik Tryoshnikov and delivered ‘three puppies and pyrotechnical devices’ to the beleaguered weather station staffers.” (Seems like a pretty bad work assignment for those puppies.) Read the whole story and you’ll realize it’s all about climate change. (They probably would have sent in supplies via drone, but all of them were being used to deliver burritos at Va Tech.)
