Ice Cycle is a Project to Return an Iceberg to Greenland Cube by Cube. It is Launching on Rocket Hub.

Ice Cycle is an enterprise designed by Robert Welkie to respond to one of the most immediate and dramatic catastrophes associated with global climate change, the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, the once vast inland ice or Sermersuag that at one point covered 80% of Greenland. The first phase of Ice Cycle has launched as a Fractured Atlas fiscally sponsored project on the crowd funding platform RocketHub. http://www.rockethub.com/projects/39846-ice-cycle .

Los Angles, CA, March 14, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Ice Cycle boldly stands in the way of climate change by returning a human-constructed glacier to Greenland. Ice Cycle technicians will collect donated ice cubes from restaurants and other food service facilities in Los Angeles in specially designed containers. Virtual ice cubes will also be donated in a web campaign to allow participation and raise awareness to as many people as possible. The ice cubes will be stored in liquid form until there are enough to fill a cargo shipping container that will be shipped from Los Angeles Harbor to the port of Ilulissat, Greenland.

The five gallon water cubes will arrive in Greenland as 5 gallon cubes of ice. The Ice Cycle cubes will be unloaded and brought by dogsled to a site designated in cooperation with the government of Greenland. Ice Cycle technicians will assist volunteers from around the globe in assembling cubes into the form of a symbolic glacier echoing the shape of the shipping container they traveled in. The glacier will be a monument to the possibility of human action in the face of global climate change.

A test cube will be transported to Ilulissat, Greenland in May of 2014, the first shipping container full of cubes will follow in just under a year later. The project will expand at its own pace to include as many participants as possible.
