Hours 20 To 22 Of Climate Reality: Across The Atlantic | Nearing its conclusion in New York City, the Climate Reality Project’s 24 Hours of Reality travels across the Atlantic Ocean to Husavik, Iceland, Cape Verde, and Ilulissat, Greenland. These two Arctic islands and one island chain of the coast of Somalia are tied together by their relationship to the Atlantic Ocean, now changing dramatically because of greenhouse pollution. Iceland is a hotbed of renewable power, especially geothermal energy, but has an economy in tatters because of extreme economic deregulation. Cape Verde’s precious rainfall is disappearing. And Greenland’s huge ice sheet is melting at a frightening pace, with terrifying consequences for the world if the melt is not reversed.
