Our Second Message

May 31, 2008

Emma and I spent the second day of training working out our key messages – what we want to say. This is a post about our second message.

‘The reason why we are going to the Arctic, is because it is one of the regions where Climate Change is being experienced in the most extreme form. The increased melting over the past 30 years has been exceptional and that is the reason why we need to take action now.

We have to ensure that we have a strong, legally binding, global treaty to reverse climate chaos. We can stop this.’

Last year, we saw the lowest levels of summer sea ice on record. This year we might not have any summer sea ice. At all. None. That’s 100 years ahead of what scientists were predicting only a few years ago.
