2041 will be a pivotal year for our planet. That year will mark the end of a 50-year agreement to keep Antarctica, the Earth’s last pristine continent, free of exploitation. Explorer Robert Swan — the first person to walk both the North and South Poles — is on a mission to ensure that we extend that treaty.
It’s a powerful talk and some of the pictures depicting what Robert and his fellow travellers went through sent shudders through me. Well worth watching.
