Take Action To Support Us
We, at Real Ice, are targeting direct action on climate change in the Arctic now, where global warming is occurring at a faster rate than elsewhere on Earth. We aim to achieve this by replenishing Arctic ice through the use of devices powered by renewable energy, in partnership with local Arctic communities. For Real Ice to achieve its very ambitious goals we need the support of governments, corporations, scientific researchers, and the entire planet.

Research The Arctic With Us
The Arctic is warming at a rate three to four times faster than the rest of the planet, which means that sea ice melt in this region happens at a increasingly faster pace. This is indeed incredibly worrying, given that Arctic sea ice melt is such a immense driver for climate change around the globe, it is also the reason we should be focusing our efforts on sea ice reclamation in the Arctic. If Arctic sea ice continues to diminish at its current rate we will continue to see an increasing regularity in extreme weather events, as well as a rise in sea levels. In 2005 ice retreat was noticeable enough that ships could sail through the Northern passage. This was a surprise to those modelling ice melt, as they hadn't taken ice thickness into account when speculating how quickly the ice would melt. This proves two things. One is that ice volume (thickness x surface area) is more important than surface area alone. Secondly, we do not know everything about the Arctic, and we have much to learn. We would like to invite Polar / Arctic researchers to engage with us, to discover whether we can collaborate, to understand how we can optimize our device in improving the albedo effect and additionally to choose areas of deployment that would maximize the positive effect we can have.
Crowdfund With Us Soon
The Real Ice design will take elements of previous ice laying machine types, such as those used to create oil platforms, and develop the premise to enable the device to be powered by the renewable sources. We hope that with the informed adaptions to the device design we can create a low-cost, and consequently a commercially viable solution. Producing the energy required by the devices through renewable sources will ensure that we do not damage the environment we're working so hard to protect. In the meantime we need your support to help us pay for the necessary development and testing of the devices.
