OUR MISSION — As climate change melts the Arctic under temperatures rising twice as fast as anywhere else on the planet, more and more of the region will become open ocean. Instead of seeing this as a grave warning, many of the world’s powerful nations see it as a business opportunity for them and oil companies.
This threat doesn’t just affect the people living in the Arctic and the unique Arctic ecosystem. Our planet is one big interconnected natural system, and we’re beginning to understand how this melting ice is linked to extreme weather across the globe. From storms like Sandy to record-breaking droughts, it’s clear that what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic and ultimately, affects all of us. So we are standing up to remind world leaders that to protect the Arctic is to protect our planet from the ravages of climate change.
