Today is our last day at the Research Center. Packing up, saying goodbye to those that have been our colleagues and will stay behind, and beginning the long journey home will occupy most of our time.
According to the weather forecast, every time I land after multiple flights during the next hours, I will have experienced a ‘climate change of about 15 C.
First we will travel from the Center to Churchill
We will leave Churchill with temperatures of - 34 C
Arrive in Winnipeg with temperatures of -16 C
Continue to Toronto with temperatures of -2 C
And arrive in Madrid with temperatures of 14 C
In a very small scale, my trip back is representative of the change our planet is going through. I will survive my trip without any major inconvenience. However I ask myself if my grandchildren will be able to live the lives I would like them to live, with the progression and consequences of Climate Change.
Fortunately we can still act, and make a difference. On how to mitigate Climate Change, I will be writing during my trip and posting it on this blog next Sunday upon my arrival.
