I don't focus on the polarization of climate change in the politics. But, I apparently that's naive. I understand the term global warming was changed primarily by Republicans to climate change some years ago. Bob Inglis went to Antarctica in 2006 and saw climate change first hand. In my research an experience, the Ice seems to have a message no matter what your politics! 'In an interview with Yale Environment 360 editor Roger Cohn, Inglis talked about his own evolution from being a climate change denier.' http://bit.ly/16xLsLp
We are All Antarctica is a story about my father George W. Gibbs, Jr’s adventures as the first person of African descent to set foot on the continent of Antarctica. He sailed on the famous ship the USS Bear in 1939 to 1941 on Admiral Byrd’s III expedition to the South Pole. It was the first joint venture with the US military and private exploration. Gibbs went on to serve humanity in countless ways, paving the way for not only people of color in the community of Rochester, MN but for all people to become more human, serve their community and appreciate differences.
Through compassion, tenacity, faith and countless hours in the trenches, Gibbs’ life is a model for community service, equality and fun. As the lowest rank on the ship, he was honored for his contribution at a time when people with dark skin were considered less than human.
This story integrates my experiences with natural healing, the arts, the science of the ice, the metaphysics of the South Pole and the history of the expedition and its mystery.
