"Hello CNN from Everest Base Camp"

Editor’s note: Arctic explorer Eric Larsen has spent the past 15 years of his life traveling to some of the most remote places on earth. He even sent the first tweet ever from the North Pole on Earth Day. Larsen reached the top of the Mt Everest on Friday. He talks to American Morning's Kiran Chetry about his 'Save the Poles' expedition to focus attention on Global Warming.

    Great that this man brings awareness of global warming. Many people pooh ppoh the idea, well, let's see, if some of these that support pollution problems with nuclear and fossil fuels, I can believe that spouting negativity to this is financially beneficial to opposing this idea or concept.
    Over 5 decades ago, my dear father was avid reader, in fact most meals we had to listen like some audience in purgatory, we were not exactly volunteers to his scientific datas .
    Over and over he read where this ice shelf would fall, tides and weather changes, would turn to many floods and some areas even droughts. You address this as this is some new idea? The ice shelf has fallen and yes meilting. Ask any polar bear, that has still found a bit of ice to dwell on. The prediction even 50 years ago, that the tides would rise 20 some feet, and costal areas be under water.
    Worse situation in the world would be some high profile republilican and some high profile democrat sharing the same ide float – one complaining we should have done something...too late.
    Bravo to Everest Base Camp. Say "hi" form me, Stay high for me.
