The "Polar Bear" is at it again

It would appear that the human "polar bear" has made the papers yet again. Lewis Gordon Pugh swam six-tenths of a mile near the North Pole this past Sunday to prove a point: that it can be done because humans are causing an unnatural warming of this planet we call Earth. So, what are we to take from this? That if he had died that the planet is okay? That the water was warmer than what was expected? What is the natural temperature of the Arctic Ocean anyways? This was just an overdone publicity stunt as evidenced by Gordon's membership in the WWF UK. Nothing more impressive than that.
I don't buy into the whole global warming thing, regardless of rather it is man-made or normal, I just don't see how we as humans can truelly accurately state that the Earth has risen in temperature one decade over another. Sure, we have stats, but only for the last, what, 150 to 200 years. The most accurate stats are only for the last 20 to 30 years. And we are told that Earth is either 6,000 years (the Bible) or billions of years (evolution) old. So, what was the climate like 1,000 years ago? Look at tree rings, they can tell us. NO, they can't. We are assuming that we understand what we are looking at. How about carbon dating? No good, another assumption based on human egotism. Think outside the box, what is possible.
We humans, we puny humans, don't begin to have the power to change climate. We can try, as we most certainly do, or rather our governments do, but success is minimal. At this point, I could branch off into HAARP or other out-there subjects, but I won't, for now.
I will conclude with my constant warning of don't believe what the news media tells you, and do your own research. Y'all have a great day!
