“Save The Arctic” Behind The Scenes

STA

Greenpeace have released a Behind The Scenes video of Funny or Die in the Arctic featuring Alexander and Jack McBrayer.

Jack McBrayer and Alexander Skarsgard – the unlikeliest of best friends – embark on the adventure of a lifetime in the Arctic Circle! As they set sail into uncharted waters with Greenpeace to study the effects of climate change, their friendship almost hits the rocks as they’re threatened by turbulent seas, melting glaciers, and – worst of all – the revelation of Alex’s secret reason for dragging Jack up to the icy North. 

The real hero here, of course, is the Arctic – it acts as a global air conditioner, reflecting the sun’s rays and keeping us all cool. But climate change is threatening the delicate balance of this crucial ecosystem. 

Make your voice count – together with Jack, Alex and over 7.5 million people worldwide – http://www.savethearctic.org

Jack & Alex Save The Arctic – it’s finally here!

It’s the one we’ve all been waiting for. Here are the 3 parts of Jack & Alex Save The Arctic filmed earlier this year by Funny Or Die in association with Greenpeace.

From Save The Arctic Facebook

Shell announced today it will stop drilling in the Alaskan Arctic. This is a HUGE VICTORY for our movement of 7 million, for every one of us who has fought for three years to stop Shell. Arctic drilling has become a global issue and now big oil has sustained an unmitigated defeat. For three years we faced them down and now the people have won. Please SHARE this post to spread the amazing news, and to tell Shell and all other oil companies to get their hands off the Arctic for good! There’s no doubt that we did this together. Today the incredible Arctic — and the planet — is a little bit safer, and it’s thanks to YOU. But we can’t stop fighting for permanent Arctic protection. The Arctic still faces the threat so Join the movement that is really making a difference and show you will stand for the Arctic for as long as it takes! http://grnpc.org/Ours

 The Arctic is under threat. As the ice melts, giant corporate companies are rushing in to exploit its resources. www.savethearctic.org

The Arctic Sunrise is in Greenland to bear witness to Seismic Blasting activities which are rocking the very eco-system  .
