Am I willing to do what it takes to reduce my carbon footprint by 80% in the next year? It’s the biggest question my co-worker Tim came home with from his expedition to the North Pole. And it’s probably the most important question we need to ask ourselves in order to slow down climate change — before it’s too late.
“We are basically screwed, but thank God for optimism.”
That’s how my trip to Spitsbergen started. Sitting next to a European Space Agency climate scientist, having a cheerful discussion about the future of our planet.
