For the first time in over 22 years, Al Gore is returning to Antarctica.

The former Vice President is returning to the frozen region as part of a trip organized by his Climate Reality Project. Joined by climate experts and a certain billionaire named Richard Branson, Gore and Co. plan to document first-hand the effects of climate change. “The West Antarctic Peninsula is warming about four times faster than the global average. In many ways, it is the biggest ‘canary in the coal mine,’ Gore said on his blog.

Over on his own site, Branson (a prolific blogger) said the group has already passed through the notorious Drakes Passage.

“Important to make this journey a transforming experience for all of us in our quest to help solve the problem of climate change,” he wrote, adding: “The first 24 hours at sea, the Gods have been kind to us. The captain says one of the most calm crossings of Drakes Passage ever. Could this be the lull before the storm?”
