Why a bottled warning?

We wanted to put fresh, natural, unadulterated climate facts right under the noses of world leaders, COP26 delegates, climate deniers and reporters in Glasgow. This high profile campaign brings Arctic glacial meltwater right into the heart of COP 26.

We worked with a Greenlandic enterprise to collect Greenland glacial meltwater at source and worked with a Scottish bottling partner to bottle it into a ‘a single serving of alarming climate facts’. A Bottled Warning.

These bottles will be delivered to COP26 sites and made available at our Arctic Basecamp tent – we will also try and get a bottle to each world leader. 

Each limited edition bottle contains messages of risk and the advice not to waste these precious glaciers.

Arctic Basecamp

What we do

We are a team of Arctic experts and scientists who ‘speak science to power’ in order to encourage bold climate action.

Arctic Basecamp was created by Professor Gail Whiteman, as a vehicle to bring this message of Arctic risk to global leaders. We work with global scientists and world-class organisations and individuals raising awareness of the global risks from Arctic change and to highlight the urgent need for scalable solutions to climate change.

Our flagship event brings the Arctic to the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting at Davos where we set up a real Arctic science basecamp, with an expedition tent acting as our workplace during the day and our dormitory at night, camping in sub-zero temperatures calling for action from global leaders to apply responsive and responsible leadership to address global risks from Arctic change.

We will be attending the COP in November 2021 where we will launch our brand new Arctic Risk Platform – the next iteration of our work.

WHY we are raising the #arcticalarm

The Arctic is the poster child for the need to stay below the +1.5C emissions target, and it’s warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. Climate Research shows a strong and direct correlation with rising CO2 emissions and loss of Arctic ice. Science shows that the Arctic is the barometer of global risk — what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay there. Research shows that rapid Arctic warming is linked to extreme weather farther south. Be it frigid cold spells, prolonged floods, persistent warmth, or long dry spells.

Every mid-September, the Arctic summer sea ice melts to its lowest point. Currently, the Arctic ice is tracking at an all-time low. Greenland is melting significantly and Arctic peatland fires are raging. This is a worrying sign of climate change. All of the data show that the Arctic is in crisis – this large system has entered an ‘unprecedented state’.

Summer sea ice has been around for thousands of years, it may be gone soon, unless we bend the emissions curve

What's at stake in the Arctic is actually the future of humanity itself
