No More Arctic? Follow Will Steger's Global Warming 101 Expedition

"Baffin Island is ground zero for climate change. The ice hunting season has been cut in half, weather, precipitation and wind patterns are changing, animals for which the elders have no names are appearing, permafrost is melting, ponds are draining and polar bears are beginning to wander into villages looking for food. No better place exists to witness the disruption of ecosystems and cultures by climate change.

This February, Will Steger and his expedition team of Inuit hunters, explorers and educators, will embark on a four-month-long expedition to get a first-hand look at how global warming is impacting the Arctic landscape, wildlife, and human communities. The Global Warming 101 expedition will publicize this change using photo, audio and text updates they collect and post to http://www.globalwarming101.com as a warning to the rest of the world of the reality and magnitude of climate change. Students and teachers around the country can follow along with the Expedition using the freely available educational curricula. In addition, the Global Warming 101 website will provide the wider community with tools, resources, and information that builds a solid understanding of the issue as well as motivation to slow global warming through personal and legislative action."
