|Paleo Slide Set: Polar Ice Cores|
|International team of scientists involved with Vostok|
Science demands cooperation. By working together, these French, Russian, and American scientists were
able to accomplish their goal: the long segments of ice they so proudly hold symbolize this
sense of cooperation. Just as researching the Earth's climatic history requires collaboration between
different individuals and different nations, preparing scientific, political, and social solutions for
Earth's climatic future demands a level of
cooperation far beyond that currently existing. While different nations and different peoples draw lines
of separation and division on the globe, we all must realize that we share one, single planet, and that
its destiny, good or bad, is the destiny of us all.
