Ice911 is acting to lower global temperatures by restoring ice in the Arctic.
We can preserve Arctic ice by spreading our eco-friendly reflective sand on top of ice in a strategic location of the Arctic. The sand is low-cost, scalable, and safe for all. Applied in a specific location 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 world is warming and Arctic ice is melting. 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 -- and every degree is worth fighting for. We must not delay or we face drought, higher temperatures, extreme weather, sea level rise, the loss of 60% of species (including polar bears), and more.
