Bengaluru, March 11: About 150 explorers from 26 countries, including 17 young Indians, are sailing to Antarctica on Sunday on a 13-day expedition to study the impact of climate change due to global warming. “The largest group of 150 men and women, including 17 from India, will cruise in a ship from Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost town in Argenti, to the Antarctica Peninsula for exploring the icy continent around the South Pole,” expedition coorditor Samantha Van Ruiten told IANS. The eight women and nine men from India are students, techies, researchers, executives and members of non-government organisations (NGOs), with a common cause to save the planet from ill-effects of greenhouse emissions, urbanisation, over consumption and changing lifestyle.
