Los Angeles Times Opinion (by Karen Klein) - I spent a few hours Wednesday in a boat on an Arctic lake with two UC Santa Barbara researchers.....while a cold rain fell steadily on us. The air temperature was a little over 45 degrees Fahrenheit, the lake water was about 6 degrees, and despite a good rain jacket and rain pants, I came out of the experience significantly dampened.
