Public Invited to Will Steger Explorers Club Talk, Dec. 5


Will Steger, world renowned polar explorer, educator, photographer, writer and lecturer will present a retrospective of a life in the arctic regions of the world, Dec. 5 at The Union Club in New York.

He has logged thousands of miles of travel by dogsled and has become a voice calling for understanding and the preservation of the arctic. The presentation “Eyewitness to Global Warming,” is his vivid account of the changes that he’s witnessed firsthand, caused by global warming pollutants, in Arctic regions over four decades of polar exploration.

Steger shares stunning photographs from his expeditions along with compelling data and satellite imagery to document the deterioration in the polar ice caps. While the issue is critical, and the presentation is dramatic, Steger’s message is one of hope and empowerment.

An understanding of our role in the causes and effects of global warming make this personal. But as Steger explains, solutions are readily available and by making economically and environmentally smart choices people can make a difference.=
