is a consortium of international explorers,
guides and professional adventurers who have witnessed the dramatic
effects of global climate change in the Arctic, polar regions and
around the world. As amassadors to some of the wildest places on
Earth, the members of ICECAAP recognize their responsibility
to educate individuals, corporations and governments about the effects
of global climate change, and to inspire them to take action before
it is too late.
is ICECAAP important?
consider the polar regions, and in particular the Arctic, to be
the "thermometer" of the Earth. In other words, what happens
in the Arctic is a sign of what is going to happen to the rest of
the planet. Unfortunately the Arctic is warming much faster than
most models and most scientists predicted. Many people fear that
it has reached a tipping point and that it will continue to warm
at the same unprecidented rate which would have dramatic negative
effects the world over. We have a responsibility to share with the
world how rapidly the Arctic is changing; and how individuals, corporations
and governments can change their habits and policies to stop and/or
slow global warming.
