Today is Blog Action Day in which more than 12,000 blogs around the world are writing about the environment and climate change in order to raise awareness.

Being environmentally-friendly explorers, we observe that green concerns are now a constant drumbeat in the news, and that action has begun: be it multinationals trying to adopt and promote carbon-neutral policies, Al Gore winning the Nobel, or the growth of environmental companies making a successful business case for sustainable activity.

We're keen to promote the cause, and live up to it ourselves by ensuring our trip to the Pole will be 100% carbon neutral thanks to our supporters at Climate Care

We are hoping further, that the SCE blue ice research programme that the team will be carrying out will help us understand a little more about Antarctica.
