Another Day, No Earthquake

Still no earthquakes in earthquake country. Just more GPS sites and more sheds. I really like sheds. I realized this today.

We had finished 8 of our 10 sites in this area, which leaves just two for tomorrow. Hooray! We're ahead of schedule! We've got three periferal sites to work on, though, so we've still got a few things to do. Doesn't look like I'll be flying home early. But it *does* look like we'll get the work done. Very satisfying.

Everyone getting ready for turkey day? I'm not getting ready, but I sure am getting excited.

Turkey Day: Remember that Wild Turkey is available in 101-proof (55.5% alcohol) and a lower concentration, as well.

But enough of that levity. . . .

Beth, this may be outside your field, but you're the only person I know (sort of) who has been at McMurdo, so here goes:

Since the ice in the Arctic is melting so fast that wild polar bears may become extinct in our lifetimes, has anybody thought about trying to establish an Antarctic range for them? Would it work? Or would it likely cause so many problems along the lines of artificially-introduced species that it would be a nightnmare?

Do you know if anybody has ever considered this as a last-ditch effort to sustain wild polar bears?

Is this just a crazy idea?

Any thoughts or suggestions on whom to query?
