As storytellers here at Scream Agency, we like to collaborate with story makers. With this week being a time to be inspired and activated, along with 20 million other Americans for Earth Day, we wanted to shine a light on our friend, client and modern-day explorer Eric Larsen.
Larsen uses his expeditions to tell the about climate change and our last great frozen places. Here are a few updates from Larsen, on what’s going on with Mother Earth and why you should care:
“Make no mistake about it. The ice is melting. Over the past 10-plus years, I have seen dramatic changes in the character and nature of sea ice. The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world. Drilling in the Arctic Ocean will not only continue the destruction of this unique environment but also contribute to the plague of human-caused climate change already affecting the entire planet.”
“This Last North expedition may realistically have been the last opportunity anyone has to complete a journey of this type. Global warming is causing dramatic changes in the Arctic pack ice. Ice is melting at historically high rates and is becoming significantly less stable with each passing year. These conditions will make expeditions like this impossible to complete in the very near future.”
Thanks Eric for continuing to spread the word. We’ll keep telling your stories.
