Ice911 is the boots-on-the-ground solution acting now to slow climate change.
We preserve Arctic ice by spreading our eco-friendly solution on top of ice in strategic locations. Our material is low-cost, scalable, reversible, and safe for all. Applied in specific locations of the Arctic, it can restore the Earth’s natural heat shield, rebuild wildlife habitat, and help stabilize global climate. Like a white shirt on a hot summer day, our material reflects heat, protecting the ice below.

The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is rising, polar ice caps are melting, and the world is warming. The Arctic’s ice cap acts as a global heat shield, reflecting heat that would otherwise be absorbed by the ocean and destabilize the climate. The Arctic ice cap has lost 80% of its volume since 1979, contributing to approximately 1/3 of global temperature rise.

Now. In order to avert the most dangerous of climate change impacts, the scientific community has determined we must limit global temperature rise to 2°C above the pre-industrial average to maintain a livable planet. We must not delay or we face the consequences of increased temperatures, extreme weather, drought, sea level rise, loss of 60% of species including polar bears, and more.
