The DeSmogBlog team is proud to introduce our newest blogger!
Please welcome Explorer Todd Carmichael, who on November 9th, 2008 will attempt to become the first American Explorer ever to complete a solo and unaided trek from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.
Todd is an amazing individual and one that cares deeply about the state of the planet, especially the issue of climate change. Over the coming months Todd will be writing on DeSmog and his special section we’re calling “Expedition Earth, Mission 2008: the South Pole,” about preparations for his expedition and also on climate change issues and solutions.
And for the grand finale, Todd will be blogging live via satellite from the Antarctica on DeSmogBlog with daily updates, video and audio as he attempts this American first.
How cool is that!
We’re all very excited to have Todd as part of our team, so go check out the Expedition Earth section on DeSmog, and sign up for Todd’s weekly e-lerts so you don’t miss a beat.
