Years ago, there was a story in the press about a particularly gruesome suicide in which a guy drilled his head eight times with a power drill till he died. Most of the coverage focused on the gruesome.
One article headline read “Man drills seven holes in head and lives!”
I think of that as I read this story:
Lots of people will read this and think “O the humanity! Thousand year old ice is melting! Unprecedented global warming!”
“An ancient forest has thawed from under a melting glacier in Alaska and is now exposed to the world for the first time in more than 1,000 years.”
I’m thinking “So it was warmer a thousand years ago.”
