Skiing and trekking to the North Pole: Parker Liautaud blogs to save the earth - Update
Parker Liautaud, 15 years old, is reporting on his progress skiing his way to the North Pole. He has made his goal to become the youngest person to ski to the North Pole, and to use that attempt to bring greater awareness to the urgent environmental issues of the arctic.
And more importantly for his purpose of letting the world see the ravages of global warming on the arctic - There was a lot of open water today. It really shows what's been going on in the Arctic - it's falling apart. Right now we're camping on this patch of old ice, but all around us is open water, broken and thin ice. To our north there's a massive pan of very thin ice. Everything is freshly frozen, if not open.
