Creators of popular YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE, Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown, travelled aboard the Arctic Sunrise to learn more about Greenpeace's work in the Canadian Arctic.

Mitch and Greg have garnered a following of over 5 million avid subscribers on their YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE with their unique, off-the-wall brand of videos which take a look at popular themes from a scientific angle, explaining phenomena, such as that blue and gold dress, in an entertaining and accessible way.

Traveling with Greenpeace, the pair visited the small Inuit town of Clyde River, Nunavut to support the community's fight to defend their Arctic home from harmful oil exploration.

Mitch and Greg spent five days in the community of Clyde River, visiting the town's cultural centre and meeting residents, as well as visiting Sam Ford Fjord with local guides, an area renowned for its unique geographical features and marine wildlife.

The video features popular science educator Bill Nye 'The Science Guy' tackling big questions about climate change in the Arctic. In a second video, AsapSCIENCE profile the seismic blasting threat to the Arctic and what it means to the people of Clyde River.

Seismic blasting — a process of firing loud sonic explosions through the ocean to find oil — is threatening marine life in the eastern Canadian Arctic. The people of Clyde River depend on a healthy Arctic ecosystem for their survival and have taken their case against seismic blasting to the Supreme Court of Canada.
