I’m here in the Norwegian Arctic for a few days, cruising the waters of Svalbard as a guest on Greenpeace’s ship Arctic Sunrise. Fish like cod are moving north as ice melts and waters warm. So Greenpeace has worked an agreement with fishing companies and giant retailers like McDonald’s to put fishing expansion here on hold while a plan is devised for protecting sensitive areas. Good work so far, Greenpeace!
Today I just want to talk about what it’s like to be aboard. (I’ve written about our work and this region in several other posts.)
