Abstract

STARTING GLOBAL In March 2015 I was fortunate to visit the Antarctic Peninsula for a second time. Sailing into Neko Harbour and looking past a pod of humpback whales, the edge of the world’s largest cache of fresh water stood before us in the form of ice stored in the mighty glaciers of the Antarctic continent. I was there at the invitation of the 2041 organisation talking to a group of young people about climate change and the implications it has for them as the shapers of the 21st century. 2041 has a single mission — preserving the majesty of this mighty continent by leaving it untouched, in part through dealing with the climate issue. On the day we passed Base Esperanza at the very tip of the Peninsula before turning into the Weddell Sea, the weather was magnificent — so good in fact that the advice we had from our expedition leads as we headed out on every Zodiac excursion, ‘Layers, layers, layers (of clothing)’, seemed almost superfluous.
