Arctic Circle (Oct. 2003) -- Three curious Polar bears approach the starboard bow of the Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS Honolulu (SSN 718) while surfaced 280 miles from the North Pole. Sighted by a lookout from the bridge (sail) of the submarine, the bears investigated the boat for almost 2 hours before leaving. Commanded by Cmdr. Charles Harris, USS Honolulu while conducting otherwise classified operations in the Arctic, collected scientific data and water samples for U.S. and Canadian Universities as part of an agreement with the Arctic Submarine Laboratory (ASL) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Though the vast majority of glaciers at Glacier Nation Park are gone and the sea ice in the Artic, essential to the polar bears survival is fast disappering, we can are be reassured that since Rush and his like minded deep thinkers at Fix News are sure global warming is a hoax.... all is well.
