For those of you who took the time on Giving Tuesday to support our work at Ice911, our deep and heartfelt thanks - you got us a long way towards our fundraising goal, and we appreciate this very much. Thanks to support from every one of you, we are only $5,000 dollars away from raising more this year than ever before.
This year the Ice911 team has been presenting our work, building relationships and awareness, and in turn listening and learning from everyone we’ve met - in locales ranging from California, New York, Massachusetts and Alaska - to Iceland, Chile, Italy, Switzerland and more - and this year of our growing outreach far and near is not over yet!
NASA’s latest data set, including the 2018 Arctic sea ice minimum, says we’re losing ice at about 12.8% per decade. This is especially alarming because last year, 2017, set records for temperatures, wildfires, and extreme storms; and this year, 2018, is looking no better.
