THE DARK SNOW PROJECT BETS ON THE WINDSLED
The Dark Snow Project bets on the use of the WindSled as a fundamental platform for research on climate change in the Arctic. In a recent video made for economic support, it illustrates the importance to continue focusing on science to understand what is happening in the polar territories, precisely at a “critical moment” due to funding cuts in countries such as the U.S. Some of the images were recorded by Vicente Leal in 2016 and provided by the project.
Dark Snow highlights the fundamental role played by the Arctic in relation to the impacts of global warming on the rest of the planet and points out the participation in this year’s Ice River Greenland 2017 Expedition with a unique means of transport that operates by wind and solar energy: The WindSled (Inuit WindSled), designed by Ramón Larramendi. “The WindSled Project is a new possibility for polar scientific trips. This expedition is non-polluting,” affirms Jason Box, director of Dark Snow.
