We’re Saved: Hundreds Jump Into Darned Cold Water

Nothing says “we’re doomed from a small increase in the world’s average temperature since 1850” like jumping in cold water

Hundreds jump into the Potomac River to raise awareness about climate change

Jumping into a cold 42 degree Potomac River at the National Harbor takes a certain type of mindset. A mindset that thinks about the changing climate.

“It is not as bad as you think, you do that quick dump into the water, and you get over that cold water in a few seconds,” said Quentin Scott of Chesapeake Climate action network.

More than 300 hardy activists and volunteers from across the D.C. region took the “keep winter cold” plunge at the 19th Annual Polar Bear Plunge— dedicated to raising awareness and funds to fight climate change.

“You know, I think about in Ellicott City in Maryland, where there was significant increased flooding in the past couple of years when businesses were lost because they were destroyed, and that’s because the scientific data says that there is a relationship between climate change, and CO2 emissions, and the increase in the rate of extreme weather events,” said Mustafa Abdullah of Chesapeake Climate Action Network.

Did anyone at Fox 5 DC ask just how sea rise is causing flooding in Ellicott City, which is about 30 miles west of Baltimore? Baltimore has a sea rise of 1.06 feet per 100 years, which is still a little bit below average for a Holocene warm period. And the land is subsiding. Granted, Ellicott City is off the Patapsco River, still, it’s mostly at least 30 meters above sea level. This is all very silly and cultish.
