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.
