Arctic March Dutch climate journalist Bernice Notenboom fails miserably

Our little Dutch sceptic community gave blogger and nature photographer Rypke Zeilmaker 1000 euro for his one thousandth blog posting to buy a new camera with which he now very sustainably shoots fabulous "localy produced" images. 62 investors amongst whom a number of government institutions gave 18.800 euro's to professional adventurer and "climate journalist" Bernice Notenboom who in order to portrait the "final [...]
