His expeditions have taken him across the Antarctic, Arctic, Himalayas, Tibetan Plateau, and Andes in search of cold hard answers to globally significant issues - acid rain, greenhouse gas warming, the Antarctic ozone hole, toxic metal pollution, natural climate variability, and abrupt climate change.
