This isn't an article about Albert but its worth a read to see his concern as well as others over these issues of Global warming and the effects its having. http://articles.news.aol.com/news/article.adp?id=20060216143509990004&ncid=NWS000100 00000001 I know when I was a child I was playing on the beach and found concrete where the road had been I was told the land had been future out. The sea walls are the only thing in many area's not letting the water wash the land out to sea. I see what Albert hopes achieve and with his admirer's watching like those on the Royal Forum he might be able to even get the smaller voices interested to make his larger by support. Look at it this way who saw the movie Water World? If you did then it could be like that in the future. From the above article.

"At 1.7 million square km [656,000 square miles], up to 3 km [nearly two miles] thick and a little smaller than Mexico, the Greenland Ice Sheet would raise global sea level by about 7 meters [22 feet] if it melted completely."
From Hello
Quote:

Speaking at the Oceanographic Museum founded by his great-great-grandfather, Prince Albert I, the prince said, "If, in our modest way, by this action we are able to bring environmental problems to the forefront and force some leaders to take stronger actions, the expedition will have achieved its objectives."
The people have to speak as well to make many leaders pay attention.

Since the time is getting close for Albert to set off on the Expedition I thought I would post the old photo's here that I located yesterday on Getty and we could contiune to talk about it as it happens and he's back. As well as questions seems most current events get hidden under all the girlfriend talk.

if you mean the speech of the 12.07.05, no it was only spoken once in French, but is available in English on the palace website. There is also a DVD which might be with English subtitles.

The North Pole Arctic Web Cam has not been established yet this year. The web site is:

http://www.arctic.noaa.gov/gallery_np.html

I understand that there are several groups heading to the North Pole via different routes at this time, on is a teenage boy. But NOAA wasn't able to get up there to put the camera in place.

The other website, the web cam:

http://www.svalbard.com/webcam/

is the starting point.
