South Pole Energy Challenge! (SPEC) starts tomorrow – 15th November

The big day is finally here:  follow along with Rob and Barney as the challenge to reach the South Pole using only renewable energy begins. This mission is the LAUNCH of the Climate Force Challenge which is a 7-year mission to clean up 326 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere. Let’s give them our support as they walk 600 miles!



They will be using technology such as solar power panels covering their sledge and a NASA designed ice melter, along with biofuels.  They will use a mix of technologies to keep warm and to make water for cooking and drinking.
