    I spend waaaaay too much time in the office of this ship chained to my laptop, but sometimes sitting here in the office of the Arctic Sunrise has its benefits.
     
    Take two minutes ago when Arne Sorensen, our ice pilot, came into the office. Arne's job i... Read more >

  • Find sand, bury head

    Blogpost by Juliette - July 6, 2009 at 14:01

    E.ON's CEO Paul Golby just participated in a live chat on the Guardian's environmental section (how he ended up in that section is anyone's guess). It begged a bit of trap questions, and I sent three of my own. He unfortunately avoided the topic, but ... Read more >

    "We thought we were alone in the world", is what a Polar Inuit hunter is said to have told South Greenlander John Sacheuse, official interpreter on 1818 expedition to Greenland led by Captain John Ross. Or so the story goes – some have questioned th... Read more >

    From Melanie, campaigner on board the Arctic Sunrise:
    A few hours after arriving at 82.31 degrees north latitude, a polar bear was sighted wandering not too far off the ship’s port beam. As you can imagine when someone shouts out “polar bear!” a fair ... Read more >

    The crew of the Arctic Sunrise is on top of the world today, for many mindblowing reasons. As I write this, the ship is nudged up against the sea ice of the Arctic Ocean at 82.5 north – a latitude higher than any Greenpeace ship has achieved before,... Read more >

  • Obama heard us, but will he listen?

    Barack Obama knows we're not happy

    "I think that the Waxman-Markey bill represents a great start. And I suspect that the Senate is going to come in -- that there's going to be a strong overlap, but not perfect overlap; the final legislation that emerge... Read more >

    Greetings from Baffin Bay! As I write this from the campaign office on board our ship, the Arctic Sunrise, blue and white icebergs appear through the sea mist. We’re just south of the wonderfully named Disko Island, or Qeqertarsuaq, off the west coast... Read more >

  • Time to give up on CCS

    Blogpost by Martin Lloyd - June 18, 2009 at 10:53

    Apparently Sainsbury's - a UK supermarket - have worked out how to generate electricity from all the cars visiting their shops. The cars drive over a plate in the ground, the energy created is turned into power and the shop suddenly no longer needs an... Read more >
