It is only a matter of days now before Philippa and I embark on our long awaited journey to Antarctica supported by Antarctica New Zealand to make the 10th Fine Line Project sculpture on the ice of McMurdo Sound. Here in the greatest wilderness on earth over so many years scientists have uncovered research data from which alarming climate change projections have been made for the earth’s near future. And on which we must now act.
There is an air of hope in achieving real international agreements and action on the reduction of carbon emissions at the UN climate talks in Paris, after the announcements from the leaders of China and America. Could it be that there is finally going to be the political will to make sufficient change to mitigate devastating climate change?
As we prepare for Antarctica it is with hope in our hearts that our 20 year global Fine Line Project will become a celebration of the turning point when governments steer towards a sane and just world. A world in which nature takes precedence over acquisitive human nature.
