The award for the best-ever 3rd-grade pun utilization in a response to a climate change impact question goes to...

...Conrad Anker -- in his interview on NPR's Science Friday today. Conrad is a mountaineer who is about to re-summit Everest, and he responded to host Ira Flatow's question about whether he's seen evidence of climate change on Everest with this:

"How does a mountain hear? Mountaineers!"

And then segued into describing what he's seen changing on the mountain. (Paths used in the 1970's have melted, the cryosphere is breaking up at high elevations, etc.)

Best non-shocking, non-alienating, 3rd grade pun-utilizing response to a question about climate change. Ever.
