Tory goes to end of world to discuss climate change
SNOW greeted Stroud MP Neil Carmichael on his return from the South Pole.
The Tory is home after joining the annual Foreign and Commonwealth Office trip to boost morale and supply links for the 90 staff based with the British Antarctic Survey at Rothera Base.
It was also a fact-finding trip for the MP as the Antarctic Bill he is promoting moves through Parliament.
"It was a chance to talk directly to scientists about their important climate change work," said Mr Carmichael. "I needed to understand more about the logistics and challenges for people down there."

Mr Carmichael was among a group of MPs who stopped a merger of the BAS with the National Environmental Research Council.
He held diplomatic talks with Britain's ambassador in nearby Chile about the UK's presence in Antarctica during the mission.
The purpose of the trip was to take a group of engineers out to Rothera and bring scientists and a doctor back.
