The rate of warming in the Arctic is about twice as high as the global average. When snow and ice melt a darker surface is exposed, causing more solar energy to be absorbed in the region.
Glaciers melt and contribute to rising sea levels. Thawing permafrost contributes to release of greenhouse gases that are presently “locked away” underground.
“As a polar explorer and educator, I support the Hearts in the Ice project which aims to collect important scientific data and raise broad public awareness about the Arctic.”

What They’re Saying
“Hearts in the Ice is a courageous, thoughtful and deeply loving initiative.
Courageous on the part of the two women – to leave home, hearth and comfort, to winter in such demanding conditions, thoughtful in the focus – to build awareness of the first-hand consequences of climate change in the Arctic, and deeply loving in the expressed care for our planet.
Homeward Bound is proud to be in alliance. We wish the team all good fortune. We will watch and listen for the unfolding story.”
