How was Antarctica
mapped in 1513, before it was even “discovered” in 1820? Piri Reis was the cartographer who created this not so perfect map, based on 20+ other maps from cartographers around the world. One of which was Christopher Colombus’ first map of the “new world” that was subsequently lost.

“As the Alliance of World Scientists, we stand ready to assist decision-makers in a just transition to a sustainable and equitable future.
The good news is that such transformative change, with social and economic justice for all, promises far greater human well-being than does business as usual.
