Pierre: Do you know "Lewis Gordon Pugh?"
Danna: Who is he?
Pierre: He's British swimmer who recently swam in the sea at the North Pole. Astonishingly, he only wore swimming briefs in a bid to highlight the impact of climate change! The temperature in water is minus 1.8 degrees Celsius!
Dianna: That's awesome. But I think there are all ice sheets in the Arctic?
Pierre: There "were." Climate change has melted part of the ice sheets there. If we don't do something to help it, there will be no ice sheets in the North Pole in the long run!

解析:in the long run == the distant future, in the end (長久下來)
