Map of places we visited in Greenland.

This will be my last update for Project Thin Ice. The ship is taking our

message to Canada, first, and then the U.S. This map shows where we have been in Greenland.

We can’t all do everything, but we can each do something. I’ve spent the last

two months doing my small part to get the word out, and I hope people have

learned a little about Greenland and global warming. Now I’m heading

home to Washington, DC. The trip has been fantastic, and part of me wishes I

could stay on board. Mostly though, at this point I am just looking forward to

going home.

When I get there, I’ll still take part in the Project Thin Ice

contest, and I’m sure come visit the ship when it’s in town.

Keep watching this space though, because you’ll hear more from the crew and new

folks joining the ship in Canada. They’ll be highlighting some of the good work

being done to move towards renewable energy, and away from

fossil fuels and nuclear power.

Despite their new rhetoric, the Bush

administration seems just as determined as ever to block any meaningful progress

on energy issues. But more and more I am convinced that is the will of the American people, many of whom are hard at work

building wind farms, investing in solar panels and generally showing the world

we are ready, willing and able to pull off an energy revolution.
