Ice swimmer Lewis Pugh's stark climate warning: without polar ice, there is no life on earth

Sky, 14 Sep 2021
UN patron of the oceans Lewis Pugh has completed what's been described as the 'coldest swim on earth' in Greenland to highlight the speed at which polar ice is melting.

He completed the first multi-day polar swim ever at Ilulissat Icefjord, which is fed by the world’s fastest-moving glacier.

His stark message, ahead of next month's COP26, is that without polar ice, there is no life on earth.
