EP 7 A Life On Ice - In the Footsteps of Legends with Tim Jarvis AM

Real Risk

There's an easy way, and there's a hard way of doing things and Tim Jarvis seems to prefer the latter. Tim's exploits in the polar regions have become almost as legendary as the explorers of the heroic period, who's fascinating but often deadly journeys he has recreated right down to the hobnail boots and reindeer skin sleeping bags. Tim Jarvis offers profound insights into the benefits of risk taking and doing hard things as he fights overwhelming obstacles that would have earned the respect of his heroes Mawson and Shackleton. The apocryphal words of Shackleton's advertisement seem just as apt for the teams he pulled together to embark on these quests..."Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success"https://www.timjarvis.org/Contact me on admin@speleopix.com.au or www.speleopix.com.au

How Tim Jarvis went from polar explorer to passionate environmentalist

Talking Australia

Tim Jarvis has endured a great deal of physical privation as a world-leading polar adventurer. In order to authentically recreate two epic journeys by Sir Douglas Mawson and Sir Ernest Shackleton, from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration, Tim willingly stripped himself of all modern equipment and undertook these expeditions with the same clothes and gear that his predecessors used in the early 1900s. On this episode of Talking Australia Tim talks about his adventures and how he since then has become a climate change advocate, public speaker and as of late started the “Forktree Project”, a non-profit demonstration site in South Australia to show how large scale rewilding of degraded pastoral land is possible. This Episode of Talking Australia is hosted by Chrissie Goldrick (Editor-in-chief at Australian Geographic) and produced by Ben Kanthak (www.beachshackpodcasts.com)You can also follow us on Instagram @australiangeographic

Tim Jarvis, a Polar Explorer's Insights

WARDROBE CRISIS with Clare Press

What to pack for an expedition to Antarctica? Or to keep yourself alive on a remote mountainside? In extreme conditions, clothes move way beyond fashion to become tools for survival.   In this Episode, you get to hang out with environmental scientist, polar explorer, author and adventurer Tim Jarvis, a man for whom pushing himself to the limits of his physical endurance is all in a day's work. But Tim doesn't undertake his incredible expeditions just to prove he's tough; he does it for a higher purpose - to spread the word about climate change, and show us how some of the remotest regions on Earth are being impacted by global warming. In 1992, at the time of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, 25 mountains at the equator had a glacier. Most of these glaciers will be melted completely away within 25 years. Enter Tim's project 25-Zero. With support from travel and adventure brand Kathmandu, Tim and a team of climbers and filmmakers have been documenting rapid, irreversible melting. In this interview, Tim shares what he's seen of climate change on his travels and what we can expect in future if we continue to emit carbon pollution at current rates. Scary quote: "We will have ice-free Arctic Ocean by the mid 2030s." Loads of kids dream of beging explorers when they grow up, but few actually do it. What made Tim the exception? What are some of the crazier expeditions he's undertaken? How does he re-integrate himself into society after he's been away? We dig deep on inspiration and the pull of the extraordinary life, and finding yourself in the wilderness. We discuss climate grief, and staying motivated. Tim explains why he's encouraging kids to embrace Nature. Oh, and we dabble in the mysteries of the universe. Are you ready for a grand adventure? This show is brought to you by Kathmandu.
