The day we reach the Amery Ice shelf I stand with scientists from around the world on the icebreaker Aurora Australis. News of Australia's refusal to sign the Kyoto agreement reaches us by satellite. I find it difficult to describe the responses of the scientists and am compelled to understand and express what I can about climate change.
