Oh no! Santa Claus is drowning!
Before you throw a life preserver to a polar bear, you might want to check what you’re seeing:
“Editors, photo editors, and photo librarians – please eliminate AP photo NY109 that was sent on Saturday, July 27, 2013. The caption inaccurately stated that “the shallow meltwater lake is occurring due to an unusually warm period.” In fact, the water accumulates in this way every summer. In addition, the images do not necessarily show conditions at the North Pole, because the weather buoy carrying the camera used by the North Pole Environmental Observatory has drifted hundreds of miles from its original position, which was a few dozen miles from the North Pole.”
In the immortal words of Andrew ‘Squiggy’ Squiggmann, “Brrr, it’s hot.”
