Jock Wishart is a 55 year old professional adventurer from a little town in Scotland. He's been around the world, but his attentions are constantly drawn to the ever-changing environmental mysteries of the North Pole. People immediately conjure images of expansive glaciers, nothing but icy terrain, and snow for miles around when they think of the North Pole, but this time Wishart packed paddles and a huge boat for the 450 mile journey.
Global warming has opened the North Pole's once frozen wastelands and freezing water now separates large chunks of icebergs. Wishart and his crew plan to explore the newly opened areas of the North Pole and report back with any evidence they find of worsening climate conditions in the area.
He is both excited and full of loathing for the mission ahead. The joy comes from his passion for exploration and the unknown travels that the undiscovered passageways will hold. The hatred derives from the subject of global warming; with the loss of species, the loss of biodiversity, and the loss of so much historical land.
He's hoping the stories of his expeditions will shed some light on the dangers of global warming and severe climate change; while in the next breath he declares this the opportune moment for travelers to explore. Wishart believes he's just one of the many lifelong adventurers adapting to a constantly changing new world.
