Why Arctic ice?
It’s urgent! The Arctic plays a critical role in maintaining a safe and stable global climate. For the past 700,000 years, Arctic sea has acted as the Earth’s heat shield by reflecting incoming solar radiation safely back to space, keeping us at an even temperature.
NOAA's 2018 Arctic report card shows – once again – how the climate of the Earth’s north polar region is changing:
These changes happening in the Arctic have rippling effects WORLDWIDE.
We’ve spent the past decade developing and testing material approaches that could be used to make young, thin ice reflective. We now focus on using reflective hollow microspheres, which can be thought of as a kind of white, extremely fine floating sand, chosen for its safety and practicality.
These microspheres, which would be dispersed in limited, strategic locations, are 100% safe for humans, animals, aquatic life, and ecosystems. They can restore the Arctic's natural heat shield, rebuild its wildlife habitats, and help stabilize global climate in the region.
Your support makes all the difference. Thank you very much!
