Tim Jarvis summits Carstensz Pyramid
AG SOCIETY SPONSORED adventurer Tim Jarvis AM has reached the summit of the first of three equatorial mountains that he is climbing to raise awareness about climate change.
Carstensz Pyramid (4,884m) in West Papua is one of only 25 of the world’s equatorial mountains with glaciers. All of these glaciers are predicted to be lost due to climate change within the next 25 years.
Tim is streaming live footage of his expedition to world leaders at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) currently underway in Paris. His next summit will be Mt Stanley in Uganda, followed by Chimborazo in Ecuador.
The climbs are part of a project he is leading called 25zero, through which he aims to eventually organise the summit of all 25 of the world’s remaining equatorial mountains with glaciers.
