Row to the Pole photo caption contest

The image below is from the Whisky powered  Row to The Pole publicity stunt.

It needs a caption. I’m sure WUWT readers will be able to provide several.

My caption suggestion is below. Winner gets 1000 carbon credits in a frameable certificate, redeemable someplace, but not here.

The Tragedy of Global Warming Climate Change Climate Disruption threatens the very existance of many animal species, including the Polar Bear, the Penguin, and the Yellow Suited Boobie. Give generously to the Rajendra and Saroj Pachauri Foundation, and help keep the ice from thinning to the point where Penguins overheat, Polar Bears swim to exhaustion, and the Boobies succeed in smashing the support from beneath their feet and drown.
Act now, before its too late! The first seventy five thousand pledges of $5 or more will receive 500,000 credits from the Chicago Climate Exchange (a $19.95 value!) and 100 free copies of the sizzling page turner Return to Almora.

But this season they encounter a new and unspeakable menace. Seemingly headed for a place that no longer exists and never seen in these parts before, the savage threat happens by chance upon the huddled baby ice pod.
With a foreign scent about them, the invaders set upon the vulnerable victims with primitive implements. Too exhausted from the pounding of the sun to make an escape, the weakened baby ice can only look up, surrendering to their fate, as the icer’s axe sets ferociously sets upon them.
The water of life has been taken, and the baby ice are violently sent to that frozen Elysium where no man has ever ventured.”

p.s., for anyone who didn’t get “There must be a pony in there somewhere!” Well, there are different versions of this old joke that captures the spirit of optimism, and President Reagan liked to tell one version, but basically it goes along the lines of:
One day a mother takes her son to a psychiatrist to see what could be done about the boy’s extreme personality. It seemed that boy was too optimistic for his own good. So the psychiatrist led the boy into a room full of manure. The boy’s face lit up and he immediately began digging through the manure, happy as can be. Shocked, the psychiatrist asked what the boy was doing. The boy looked up from his digging and replied: “With all this manure, there must be a pony in there somewhere!”

http://www.rowtothepole.com/latest-news/ says
We are on the very edge of success, but there is still a lot to overcome. What we have achieved is incredible, 450 miles of Arctic rowing over 25 days. Now at Thor Island we are once again playing the waiting game. As expected there is moderate ice cover around Dome Bay a mile off our landfall at Thor. North of this, Noice Peninsular is the last headland between us and the finish. There is a small ice lead a mile off Noice Peninsular. This fracture in the pack ice stretches for miles parallel to the coast. The difficulty is that ice leads are vulnerable to change rapidly with prevailing winds. We are now entering a period of strong easterly winds which should blow the ice away from the shore, allowing a two day dash forward to the Pole. If the ice does not move, then we might have to risk navigating the ice lead. Tonight we are to relay ice cover observations back to our ice expert, Kim. Hopefully by combining on-the-ground observations with the latest sat imagery we’ll get an accurate picture of ice movement and ultimately when best to make our move!
