Journey to the dreams polar

Wrote the philosopher Michel Onfray, who, before the explosion of ice from an iceberg, the man faced his condition of particle helpless, reminding us how ridiculous our worries. And long ago that the experts believe the arctic ecosystems as indicators of the health of our planet.

As the polar star, which never sleeps and serves the navigator in order not to lose the course, the Arctic reminds us of our position in the world. Without him, we are lost. The exhibition “The Arctic is broken”, promoted by the Obra Social ”la Caixa”, now considering a trip to the dreams polar , a promenade immersive to discover the secrets and value of this land as wild as it is fascinating.

If you still do not know much of the Arctic is because it is a far area and little accessible

Although they have been almost 200 years since the first vessel then ventured into the Arctic, and while no one is created the legends that claimed that reptiles intelligent inhabited these lands, still we do not know a lot of things on that territory which is the most north of the north that can be.

do you Know explain, for example, the difference between a glacier, an iceberg and an ice? How do plants do to survive on the ice? what And why, in reality, polar bears are black? Are some of the questions addressed in the exhibition “The Arctic is broken”, which can be visited until the 8th of September in the Parque Amestoy of Castro-Urdiales (Cantabria), and, from 13 September to 13 October, in Bilbao.

If you still do not know so many things from the polar region is due, in most part, that is not precisely the site more accessible and close to the planet. So, if the people are not going to the Arctic, the Arctic go to the people: the exhibition showcases an installation that simulates a walk among icebergs and, in addition, at all times the visitor is accompanied by interactive panels and a few snapshots of the prestigious photographer Andoni Canela that will bring you to the reality more recent of the arctic region.

this way, as if in a browser, picking their way among the ice were , the visitor will discover the four themes of the shows –on the arctic climate, the fauna and the flora fleece, the culture of its inhabitants and the northern lights– until you reach the final room: a circular space where a song in the sami language accompanies a screening of the wonderful “northern lights”. A testimony of a world that is mysterious and sacred, which may have its days numbered.

In fact, just last August 1, we followed up “the budget green” throughout the year. What is to say that, in little more than half a year, since we have used more natural resources than the planet is able to produce.

The thaw it would be a catastrophe on a global scale

Meanwhile, under the arctic ice, they hide huge reserves of natural gas, oil, coal, nickel and even gold. But this meltdown possible, far from being an opportunity, it would be more of a catastrophe on a global scale with more floods than ever before, the Earth would never be as we know it. his landscapes icy and inhospitable not to confuse anyone: save the Arctic is, as little, to save the life.
