Does rowing to the North Pole prove man made global warming?

It appears a British group has rowed to the North Pole in what has been (self?) described as a world first. From the report from The Telegraph, I have just a few questions: "...he and his five-man team were "exhilarated" after completing their 450-mile voyage through the Arctic waters."

"...he and his five-man team were "exhilarated" after completing their 450-mile voyage through the Arctic waters."
OM asks: Do you see any water in their picture?

"It was later pointed out by observers that the group had in fact reached the 1996 location of the pole."
OM asks: So how far are they from the actual geographical North Pole? How far are they from the current magnetic north pole?

"It will go down in history books as the first ever (time) someone has rowed to the North Pole."
OM asks: Huh?

"... in their specially designed boat-***-sledge the Old Pulteney, which has runners on its underside so that it can be hauled over the ice."
OM asks: Huh?

So a couple of guys spent a month doing some rowing, some pulling over ice to reach the spot where the magnetic pole was in 1996 and claim it's a world first? And the Telegraph headline is: British explorers row 450 miles to North Pole in world first voyage.

Does this seem funny, pathetic, sad, ingenious, ridiculous...what's your point of view???

By the way, this should give you an idea where the magnetic pole was in 1996: http://www.greatdreams.com/solar/magneti...
