Arctic : A youth from Assam recently participated in an international expedition to the Arctic in the North Pole bringing immense pride to the state of Assam. The youth, Rituraj Phukan was part of the research expedition to the North Pole
The expedition entitled – Climate Force Arctic Expedition has been conducted to study the climatic changes and its impact on the North Pole region, basically the Arctic Circle.
Assam’s Rituraj Phukan is part of the expedition who is currently working with the organization Green Guard as a secretary. A total of 85 environmentalists from 27 countries including Rituraj are participating in the expedition.
The rapid change of the global climate as well as weather is hugely impacting the snow covered regions of Arctic and Antarctic Circle. Environmentalists across the world have been vocal about the dangers prevailing over the two poles due to climate change and have been campaigning to protect the poles from getting melted completely due to the rising global temperatures for many years. The rising temperatures have also hugely impacted the flora and fauna of the two regions as well.
The Climate Force Arctic Expedition tries to seek answer on the rapid changes taking place in the poles due to climate change. The team’s main objective is to protect the degrading condition of the two poles where the ice is melting at an alarming region.
