Which makes me wonder how it could have been that cold that long with the sea still doing fine. Feels like non-freezing relative warmth of the one should be doing something with the cold of the air or vice-versa.What about the survival of the animal life? Is it legitimate to criticize the adventure regarding this?
Anyway, at some point further north where it's iced in during a usual winter, it reminds me of the baluga whale/polar bear seen in the BBC's Blue Planet. Lot of dead whales who ran out of air holes up there when they finally iced over with no though. And probably a lot of dead bears.
