Our goal is to make Antarctica the world's first carbon neutral continent by 2020. It will be a demonstration to the world that if Antarctica can do it, carbon neutrality is possible on a global scale. In the wake of the successful worldwide cooperation as demonstrated during International Geophysical Year, in 1959 the Antarctic Treaty was a remarkable result. It is the most successful example of international cooperation to date. Now that International Polar Year has begun to draw to a close, what legacy will come about as a result? We hope that a carbon neutral Antarctica could become that legacy. The Antarctic Treaty designated 10% of the face of the earth for peaceful and scientific purposes only. Why not designate that 10% of the world as carbon neutral?
