Posted on the 13 October 2017 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
Our planet is undergoing some serious changes at the moment in regards to climate. Whether or not man is having an impact on that is subject to debate depending on who you speak with. To help understand that impact further, French polar explorer Vincent Colliard had joined forces with Norwegian legend Børge Ousland to form the IceLegacy Project. The duo intend to ski across 20 largest glaciers in the world to take samples of the ice and record how far those glaciers have retreated. Their efforts are not just about helping us understand the Earth a bit better, but are also a tremendous adventure too. In this video, we get to know Colliard a bit better and see him in action ni the field as he skis, treks, and packrafts to remote regions of the world.
