    They might find what Admiral Bird did. But the little words like climate and carbon makes me think there only looking for Mooney.

    I found source of this article in a Perth online story. It contained this quote:

    "Led by Order of Australia medallist Greg Mortimer, the expedition will be the first for the Homeward Bound program, which will bring together 1000 female scientists from around the globe over the next decade."

    Greg Mortimer, a man, is a famous Australian mountaineer as well as a geochemist and geologist.

    I have mixed feelings about this expedition. It is great that women scientists are able to embark on something so adventurous. However, I think they are taking with them a questionable political agenda, and that is sad.
