Sci­en­tific team crosses Green­land

China Daily (Canada) - - HOLIDAY -

Wen Xu and his team have be­come the first Chi­nese team to cross Green­land. The 2018 ini­tia­tive, <2°C Plan, led by the young ad­ven­turer, is a sci­en­tific ex­plo­ration project that aims to raise aware­ness of global climate change through par­tic­i­pa­tion in sci­en­tific ad­ven­tures. “Years of ex­pe­di­tions and sci­en­tific re­search have made me re­al­ize the im­pact of global climate change on the po­lar re­gions, glaciers and lo­cal in­hab­i­tants,” said Wen. “I hope that through my ex­plo­ration ini­tia­tive, more peo­ple can step up and ad­dress the chal­lenges brought by global climate change.”
