In an effort to bring attention to the issue of global climate change and the role ethanol can play in the solution, the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council has joined the team for explorer Will Steger’s Global Warming 101 Expedition, according to an EPIC release.
Steger, who has long been a proponent of alternative energy in the fight against global warming, will begin a four month dogsled expedition next month across the Canadian Arctic’s Baffin Island.
“There’s never been a more critical time to act. “The debate is over,” said Steger. “Ethanol is available now to consumers. A renewable fuel, it’s a critical part of the solution.”
EPIC is offering a way for everyone to help in the effort. Visitors to www.drivingethanol.org can purchase an expedition T-shirt or a cute and cuddly polar bear stuffed animal. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Will Steger Foundation.
Domestic Fuel will be on location in Ely, Minnesota February 3 when the Steger expedition prepares to cross the border into Canada to get up close and personal with Will and his team of 24 trained dogsled pullers. Stay tuned for more.
