Melting Arctic ice means new economic opportunities: trade routes in the Arctic ocean, and access to natural resources. Because of this, the Arctic nations are now moving to expand their border claims. Russia has shown that it’s the most ambitious, using a potent combination of soft power and military buildup to advance its agenda. They’ve said the Arctic is rightfully theirs.

Geopolitics of the Arctic
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport Channel of Patrice: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO-NZoGEzCE5klWUCZVDuWQ BAKU - The Arctic covers roughly 14 million square kilometers of water and solid ice. It’s almost the size of Antarctica. For most of its part, the region is inhospitable. In the summer, the weather can rise above the melting point, yet, in the winter, it can plunge down to minus 45 degrees Celsius. This situation, however, is not to last. In the coming decades, climate change will make the Arctic passages and resources become more accessible. Given the abundance of resources and critical trade routes, it should come as no surprise that the Arctic will turn into a new geopolitical flashpoint.

Russia Arctic military base: Arctic Trefoil military base strengthens strategic ambitions- TomoNews
ALEXANDRA LAND, RUSSIA — Russia’s Defence Ministry has released a “virtual tour” of the country's new Arctic military base. The Arkticheskiy Trilistnik or “Arctic Trefoil” base has been built on the Russian territory of Alexandra Land, an island in the Franz Josef Land Archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. The 14,000 sqm base is built on stilts, which are designed to help it withstand extreme cold weather that can reach as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius. The base will house 150 personnel on a 18-month period of duty. The main components of the base remain top-secret but the Russian military said the facility is equipped with a clinic, library, chapel, gym and cinema, according to BBC News. Military experts said the new base will help Russia to control international shipping on the Northern Sea Route and protect the country’s oil and gas resources in the Arctic. Russia is building four more military bases in the Arctic region. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - The Arctic is rich in hydrocarbon and mineral resources. The region also holds two essential trade passages that connect East Asia, North America, and Europe. In other words, there’s tremendous potential in the Arctic and climate change is forcing nations to reevaluate their national interests. In a previous report, we went over the region’s territorial claims, legal proceedings, and the fact that every Arctic nation has made claims in the Northern Hemisphere. The ongoing disputes are legally complicated, but no other country is as well prepared to dominate the Arctic as Russia.

Russia: Arctic will become 'attractive territory to live and work in' – Deputy PM Rogozin
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Rogozin outlined a vision to make the Arctic “an attractive place to live and work in,” speaking on the first day of the International Arctic Forum in Arkhangelsk, Wednesday. Rogozin stated that Russia wants to develop projects in the Arctic region with international partners, arguing that “peoples’ desire to go to the Arctic, and their desire to form ties with it will be the best indicator of the effectiveness of our joint activities.” US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft also addressed the forum’s audience, calling for all the “maritime countries to come together to form a policy that allows all countries to benefit from [Arctic] resources, while doing their part to ensure sustainability.” SOT, Dmitri Rogozin, Russian Deputy Prime Minister (Russian): "Russia gained invaluable experience exploring the Arctic and the Northern Sea Route. We formed a range of unique technologies in various fields, which were tested in the most severe conditions of the far north. Without exaggerating, we can say that our country both in Imperial, and in Soviet times was the world leader in this field. Today we have major projects in the transport sector, information technologies, communications, navigation, industry, medicine, and housing. The global purpose of this work is to enable relationships with the region. Peoples’ desire to go to the Arctic, and their desire to form ties with it will be the best indicator of the effectiveness of our joint activities. This is much more important than any financial or economic indicators. Through consolidation of efforts, a constant exchange of experience, knowledge and technology, the Arctic will turn into an attractive territory to live and work in."

Russia Files Bid at United Nations for Claiming Territory in Arctic Ocean
Russia submitted a bid to the United Nations Tuesday claiming vast territories in the Arctic Ocean. The Foreign Ministry said Moscow will claim 1.2 million square kilometers -- more than 463,000 square miles -- of the Arctic sea shelf, which extends more than 350 nautical miles from the shore, CBC News reported. In addition to Russia, the U.S. Denmark, Canada, and Norway have all attempted to assert jurisdiction over parts of the Arctic, as it is thought to hold much of the planet's undiscovered energy resources, Radio Free Europe reported. http://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2015/08/04/Russia-files-bid-at-United-Nations-for-claiming-territory-in-Arctic-Ocean/6551438699192/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Russia Is Profiting Off Global Warming | VICE on HBO
While many parts of the world are struggling from catastrophic effects of climate change, Russia is looking to capitalize on it, with the Kremlin driving a narrative that touts the economic benefits. Like more and faster access to petroleum and mineral reserves that were previously unreachable. The Northern Sea Passage, a legendary shipping lane along Russia’s Arctic coastline, has been largely inaccessible for part of the year because of dense sea ice. But now, that ice is melting, opening up a new trade route for Russia's cargo ships. Russian oil companies are already betting big on the new reserves they hope to find in the Russian Arctic, and other industries — like mining — are ramping up production since they now have faster shipping routes to many ports. “The problem of climate change is actually the problem of adaptation to climate change. This is not a tragedy,” said Nobel Prize-winning climatologist Oleg Anisimov. “Certainly some places will become unlivable, but other areas are places that will become more livable.” But the Russian people seem unaware, or unconcerned, about the environmental impacts of these climate change-related activities, like pollution from the booming factories, and wildfires in the North that destroyed million of acres of forest in a major tourism area. VICE’s Gianna Toboni visited Russia's Arctic to see just how big the country is betting on climate change.

The Last Arctic Sea Ice Refuge?
AGU Fall Meetings Press Conference December 16th, 2010 With summer sea ice projected to disappear from much of the Arctic within decades, researchers are investigating whether ice may persist year-round somewhere, and thus provide a last stand for polar bears, seals and other creatures that cannot survive without it. Studies of ice-formation patterns, currents, winds, and the habitat requirements of arctic biota suggest there may be such a place. The researchers have zeroed in on the now heavily ice-clogged region just north of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and Greenland. Speakers: Stephanie L. Pfirman Hirschorn Professor and Department Chair, Department of Environmental Science, Barnard College/Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, New York City, New York, USA; Robert Newton Research Scientist, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, Palisades, New York, USA; Bruno Tremblay Assistant Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

10 Most Dangerous Water Animals In The World ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] There are many different types of creatures that live in streams, lakes, seas and oceans. And while many of these creatures are harmless, there are many that are incredibly dangerous if you happen to have an encounter with them. These dangerous animals lurk beneath the surface of the water in a world vastly different than ours, and must be deadly to survive. Join us as we take a look at 10 of the most dangerous water creatures. 10. Australian Box Jellyfish – This creature is not one to be messed around with if you happen to swim into a swarm of them. And while they may seem harmless, the Australian box jellyfish is considered to be the most venomous marine animal in the world. They have tentacles that are covered with tiny darts called nematocysts, and they are loaded with poison. 9. Flower Urchin – Beautiful but deadly, these sea urchins are extremely venomous. They look like a bouquet of small flowers; to which they get their name from. They feed on invertebrates, sponges, and dead fish, and have well developed jaws for grinding up their prey. 8. The Saltwater Crocodile – Evolving around 200 million years in the Mesozoic epoch, crocodiles have far outlived the dinosaurs. The Salt water crocodile is the world’s largest reptile, and they have been known to grow up to 27 feet long and weigh 2,465 lbs. 7. Textile Cone Snail – Mother nature teaches us that anything in nature that is beautiful, is most likely deadly, and a warning to predators and humans to not touch or disturb them. This holds true for the Textile Cone Snail. 6. The Sea Snake – These highly venomous marine snakes are closely related and belong to the same family as the cobra. There are two independently evolved groups: the true sea snakes which are related to Australian terrestrial elapids, and the sea kraits which are related to Asian cobras. 5. The Lionfish – Lionfish are skilled hunters, using specialized bilateral swim bladder muscles to provide exquisite control of location in the water column, allowing the fish to alter its center of gravity to better attack prey. The lionfish then spreads its large pectoral fins and swallows its prey in a single motion. 4. The Stingray – Stingrays are a group of rays, which are cartilaginous fish related to sharks, and are one of the oceans deadliest creatures. Most stingrays have one or more barbed stingers on their tails, which are used exclusively for self-defense. 3. Blue-Ringed Octopus – This octopus has some of the most striking colors of any ocean creature. They get their name from the brightly blue colored rings on its body. 2. Needlefish – These strange looking creatures are very slender, and have a single dorsal fin, placed far back on the body. Needlefish are capable of making short jumps out of the water at up to 37 mph. Since Needlefish swim near the surface, they often leap over the decks of shallow boats rather than going around. 1. The Moray Eel - Most attacks stem from disruption of a moray's burrow to which they react strongly, but an increasing number of accidents also occur during hand feeding of morays by divers, an activity often used by dive companies to attract tourists.

Canadians are getting a look at the Arctic
Canadians are getting a look at the Arctic like they've never seen before, from deep down in the ocean Despite having little polar territory of its own, the US will use its close ties to Canada to secure a bigger slice of the Arctic's vast natural resources, Michel Chossudovsky, director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, told RT. The battle for the oil and gas riches around the North Pole is heating up, with the eight Arctic Council nations -- Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the US -- looking for a bigger piece of the pie. But even some countries with no territory in the region, such as China and India, have managed to achieve observer status in the Arctic Council. All of the Arctic Council states have sent delegations to the third International Arctic Forum, which kicked off in Russia's Salekhard on September 24. The director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, Michel Chossudovsky, believes that the US will establish military bases and promote the interests of its companies in the Arctic to increase its influence in the region. RT: Just how hot could things get over the Arctic with so many nations vying to lay their hands on its estimated 20 plus percent of the world's oil and gas? Michel Chossudovsky: We have to look at the issue of the claims, the territorial claims. The strategic interests are significant because it's estimated that Arctic region has something in the order of 25 per cent of global oil and gas reserves. But we should understand that the US transpolar territory is much smaller than that of Russia, Canada and Denmark. And in fact the US doesn't really have territories bordering... or very limited territories bordering the Arctic Ocean. And we have to distinguish between the territories above the Arctic Circle, which is the imaginary line at the 66th parallel, and the actual Arctic Ocean and there what happens is we have Canada, Denmark and Russia, which are the main countries, which actually have territories there. How does the US get round this? It's not a member of the UNCLOS, the UN Convention on the Law on the Sea, and therefore it can file official claims for extended continental shelf. And, in fact, I don't think it intends to do that, because if you look at the geography Alaska is only a little bit above the Arctic Circle. But how does it get around it is through the militarization of North America and its alliance, particularly with Canada, but also with Denmark and Norway. And the establishment of what is called 'Maritime NORAD.' This goes back to 2002 when [US Secretary of Defense Donald] Rumsfeld, actually, claimed the whole region under the US Northern Command. RT: Moscow won't be giving its slice of the pie to anyone, for sure. Earlier this month, President Putin ordered the rebuilding of a military base in the Novosibirsk Islands. How much of a player is Russia trying to be in the region? MC: I think Russia has legitimate claims to that area in view of its geography with a large portion of its territory above the Arctic Circle and territories within the Arctic Ocean itself. But the US is now building integration with Canada under the North American Union, which constitutes means to extend its so-called sovereignty over Canada's Arctic territories. And under US Northern Command, of which Canada is unofficially a member, Canada accepts the right of US to deploy troops and naval forces extending into its Arctic territories. And so the issue of territorial rights over the Arctic will eventually, in my opinion, will go through deep integration between Canada and the US and the so-called North American Union. And the strategic partnership, which eventually will extend its jurisdiction up onto the North Pole. That's really the issue, it's a confrontation between Russia and the US and its partners, NATO partners in a new battle for oil and gas. And there we're talking about militarization, establishment of military bases, and extension of oil and gas companies going up to the Arctic and, of course, it has devastating environmental implications.

The new cold war: The race for Arctic oil and gas - Counting the Cost
The Arctic, which is believed to contain as much as one-quarter of the world's undiscovered oil is part of a massive territorial dispute. The United States, Russia, Canada, Denmark, Norway and Iceland are all laying claim to the area, with each country eager to tap into the oil, 30 percent of the earth's natural gas and resources such as diamonds, gold and iron. In August, Russia submitted a bid to the UN claiming a territory thought to hold $30 trillion worth of oil and gas. Meanwhile, Canada has been scrambling to defend its territory against the US arguing that it is sovereign Canadian water, not an international waterway. Amid the Arctic land grab, Iceland has also seized the opportunity for exploration. Vanishing at 13 percent a decade, the melting ice is expected to make drilling, mining and shipping easier. Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson, Iceland's Foreign Minister joins Counting the Cost to discuss Iceland's plans for the Arctic and protecting the region from climate change. ISIL's toll on Turkey's economy Turkey's economy is on a worrisome course with it's local stock market and currency continuing to decline. Hit by political uncertainty, unable to form a coalition government and becoming ever more involved in the chaos in neighbouring Syria, Turkey's economy has been dealt a series of blows. Just a few years ago, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AK party were almost unstoppable, both politically and economically. Erhan Aslanoglu, a Professor at Marmara University joins the programme to discuss Ankara's economic downturn. Opal Mining Takes Off in Ethiopia The Ethiopian highlands are often called "the roof of Africa". A rugged, breathtakingly beautiful landscape, the discovery of opals in recent years has got precious gem experts around the world excited. The industry currently generates around $25m a year and has led to Ethiopia being ranked among the five fastest growing economies in the world. Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford went to the Wollo district in the country's northeast, an area generating a lot of interest among gemstone experts.

Russia Files Bid at United Nations for Claiming Territory in Arctic Ocean
Russia submitted a bid to the United Nations Tuesday claiming vast territories in the Arctic Ocean. The Foreign Ministry said Moscow will claim 1.2 million square kilometers -- more than 463,000 square miles -- of the Arctic sea shelf, which extends more than 350 nautical miles from the shore, CBC News reported. In addition to Russia, the U.S. Denmark, Canada, and Norway have all attempted to assert jurisdiction over parts of the Arctic, as it is thought to hold much of the planet's undiscovered energy resources, Radio Free Europe reported. ►Circle us on Google + http://goo.gl/TXeBfX ►Subscribe Channel http://goo.gl/mqt0wI ►Don't forget to Like * Comment * Share this video. ----------------------------------------­-------------------------------- Stay tuned, Stay connected

The Emerging Arctic
This video is part of the Council on Foreign Relations' InfoGuide Presentation, "The Emerging Arctic" : http://www.cfr.org/arctic Climate change, technological advances, and rising global demand for resources may unlock the considerable economic potential of the Circumpolar North in the 21st century. The melting of Arctic sea ice to record lows in recent years has prompted many nations, principally those with Arctic Ocean coastlines—the United States, Canada, Russia, Norway, and Denmark (Greenland)—to reassess their commitments and interests in the icy reaches atop the globe. Many forecast Arctic summers will be free of ice in a matter of decades, potentially opening the region up to hundreds of billions of dollars in investment, including energy production, shipping, and fishing. The thaw will also pose new security demands as greater human activity induces states to increase their military and constabulary presence. While most experts dismiss the prospects for armed aggression in the Arctic, some defense analysts and academics assert that territorial disputes and a competition for resources have primed the Arctic for a new Cold War. Meanwhile, environmentalists are concerned that a new era of Arctic exploration and development could spoil one of the planet's last great frontiers, a pristine habitat home to iconic wildlife and native communities that have subsisted there for thousands of years. Climatologists warn that the extraction of Arctic fossil fuels will contribute to global warming at a time when they believe nations should be paring back greenhouse-gas emissions and pursuing alternative energy sources. But for many, the debate is less over whether the region should be developed, but rather if it can be done sustainably and peaceably. The Arctic is emerging on the world stage, and it is not yet settled whether businesses, governments, and other operators can fully manage the unique risks it poses.
Our Shared Heritage: Arctic Breeding Birds in the Yellow Sea
CAFF and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology have developed a short film that features the work of the Arctic Migratory Birds Initiative to highlight the plight of Arctic-breeding migratory birds in the East Asian Australasian Flyway, and the international cooperation to reverse declining trends.
► Ice Race - Into the Unknown - the Story of the ARCTIC (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
Oil and gas are the very blood of our modern industrial society and our last major reserves are to be found in the Arctic. The lives of practically everyone on earth would be different if we did not have oil and gas. Our reserves will soon become depleted, apart from in the Arctic. Our episode entitled “Entering Virgin Territory” explains the dramatic energy situation. How would this impact on the vulnerable Arctic environment and the indigenous populations living in the area? Should Arctic considerations take precedence over the living standards of the rest of the world? The situation is most dramatic in the USA. This superpower will soon have no major oil wells left. The country is currently consuming three times as much oil as it produces and it is paying sky-high prices throughout the world to secure access to this black gold. The northernmost town in the USA, Barrow, lies in the middle of an area which is believed to contain Alaska’s richest oil reserves. The local Eskimo population lives mainly off the area’s natural land and sea resources, and an indomitable will to survive. They are now directing their energy towards the oil industry that wants to establish activities in the area. As the Polar ice starts to melt the oil industry is dreaming about making major oil and gas finds in this more or less untouched territory. The violent conflicts and wars that are taking place in some of the world’s most affluent oil states are adding further fuel to these dreams. But who should be entitled to extract future oil and gas reserves in the Arctic? Where do the borders run in this icy territory? History has shown us that this is an extremely dangerous situation. Because will a world that is becoming increasingly more dependent on oil respect national borders, historic territorial claims and be able to resolve border conflicts in an amicable manner? In our fourth and final programme, “Border Conflict”, we show how the new race in the Arctic is creating new borders and new conflicts.

What does LAW OF THE SEA mean? LAW OF THE SEA meaning - LAW OF THE SEA definition - LAW OF THE SEA explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Law of the Sea is a body of international law that concerns the principles and rules by which public entities, especially states, interact in maritime matters, including navigational rights, sea mineral rights, and coastal waters jurisdiction. It is the public law counterpart to admiralty law, which concerns private maritime intercourse. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, or "UNCLOS", concluded in 1982 and put into force in 1994, is generally accepted as a codification of customary international law of the sea. Disputes are resolved at the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (or "ITLOS"), a court in Hamburg. In 2017, ITLOS celebrated 20 years of existence, during which time it had settled some 25 cases. The Tribunal has jurisdiction over all disputes concerning the interpretation or application of the Convention, subject to the provisions of article 297 and to the declarations made in accordance with article 298 of the Convention. The judge are derived from a wide variety of nations. With many people worldwide now turning their eyes to an ocean in peril, the Law of the Sea convention turned into a global diplomatic effort to create a basis of laws and principles for all nations to follow concerning the sea and everything it held. The result: A 1982 oceanic constitution, called the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Between New York, USA and Geneva, Switzerland, ambassadors from 165+ countries sat down to trade and barter for their nations' rights. The conference created the standard for a 12-mile territorial sea around a land and allowed it to gain universal acceptance. Within these limits, states are free to enforce any of their own laws or regulations or use any resources. Furthermore, each signatory coastal state is granted an Exclusive Economic Zone (or "EEZ"), in which that state has exclusive rights to fisheries, mineral rights and sea-floor deposits. The Convention allows for "innocent passage" through both territorial waters and the EEZ, meaning merchant ships do not have to avoid such waters, provided they do not do any harm to the country or break any of its laws. Military ships do NOT have the right to pass through another nation's EEZ unless permission is granted. This can cause difficulties for Russia, whose Baltic fleet and Black Sea fleet do not have unobstructed access to the great oceans. By contrast, the USA (which is not a signatory to UNCLOS) has free access to the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans, and to the Gulf of Mexico. Because the EEZ is so extensive, ITLOS may need to determine the ocean boundaries between states, as they did in 2012 between Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). As the Arctic Ocean becomes increasingly important for both navigation and resources, the USA may find it necessary to submit to UNCLOS to clarify the Alaska/Canada border. The Law of the Sea should be distinguished from Maritime Law, which deals with topics such as law of carriage of goods by sea, salvage, collisions, marine insurance and so on. In maritime law disputes, normally at least one party is a private litigant, such an individual or a corporation.

Cold Rush. Drilling For Oil Amid Arctic Ice
In 2014 Russia became the world’s first producer of Arctic Oil or ARCO. The Prirazlomnaya platform on the Russian Shelf above the Arctic Circle, operates round the clock to extract the oil. The “Kirill Lavrov” is one of two giant tankers that ferry the black gold to land. The platform is constantly expanding, putting down new bore holes. Once extracted the oil must be carefully analysed to ensure the quality is consistent. So scientists aboard the platform never stop, from their own laboratory on the rig, they make sure the oil always meets the highest standards. Everything that happens out here is scrutinised and practiced to perfection. The man-made island has 2 search and rescue teams who practice regularly emergency drills to keep the crew safe and to respond swiftly in the unthinkable event of an oil spill. They take safety seriously, both personal and ecological, the engineers take great pride in the fact that not a drop of oil has been spilt since the rig came into operation. The Prirazlomnaya’s numbers around 200 people who work day and night in extremely harsh conditions. The shift patterns mean that they spend every other month away from their families. It certainly takes strength of character to do this job. RT Doc visits the rig to meet the people of Russia’s first Arctic oil platform, including the only woman aboard, to find out more about the process of producing ARCO safely.

'The New Silk Road': Arctic melt sparks territorial scramble
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN It's one of the most evocative places in the world – and until now, one of its most inaccessible. The Arctic is the world’s frozen ocean, a place where as much as a quarter of the world’s valuable oil and gas may be locked within the sea floor. Up to now, those deposits have been out of reach - but climate change is making parts of the Arctic more accessible than ever before. In February of this year, thermometers there hit record highs. For the countries with territorial claims in the Arctic, this could be a golden opportunity. For environmentalists, the situation could prove catastrophic. And for those with an eye for international relations, there's potential for new clashes among some of the world's most powerful countries. Three European Union countries (Denmark, Sweden and Finland) are directly involved in Arctic affairs via the Arctic Council. But the wider EU is facing opposition as it continues to keep its foot in the door of the body. We bring you an exclusive report on an enormous Russian gas plant in the Arctic. We also find out about clashing territorial claims and debate whether the EU, Russia, or anybody else should even be trying to exploit Arctic resources in our age of climate emergency.

This report goes into a town where bears roam the streets and the effects of climate change are felt daily. Leo Ikhakik has the unique job of keeping the town of Arviat safe from polar bears. "Once they get hold of you, you're history", he warns. He's armed with rubber bullets, which will scare the animals off, but also live ammunition just in case. "It's very scary to be out during the polar bear season", says Leo's daughter Lorraine, who's mum to six children. As global warming reduces Arctic sea ice, a vital hunting ground for the bears, they are seen venturing into the town more and migrating less. "Nine polar bears each night come into Arviat", explains a worried local resident.

In this season 2 finale, Jonathan treks all the way to Antarctica to investigate life south of the polar circle. Along the way he dives in the majestic kelp forests of Patagonia, where crabs rule the sea floor. Once he arrives in Antarctica, his adventures continue. He swims with penguins, dives under an iceberg, meets a massive jellyfish 3 feet across, and has an incredible encounter with a Leopard seal, the apex predator of Antarctica. This program won a New England Emmy Award! ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe! You can join us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/BlueWorldTV Twitter https://twitter.com/BlueWorld_TV Instagram @blueworldtv Web: http://www.blueworldTV.com ********************************************************************** My journey begins with several flights from my home in the United States to the southernmost city in the world—Ushuaia, Argentina at the tip of Tierra del Fuego. My home away from home: the Aleksey Marychev, a 210 foot long Russian research vessel with an ice-strengthened hull. On our way down the Beagle Channel to open water, we pass a small rock island covered in South American Sea Lions. And then we pass the famous Beagle Channel Lighthouse. After leaving the Beagle Channel, we will round Cape Horn into the Drake Passage and make our way more than 600 miles south until we reach the protection afforded by end of the Antarctic peninsula. My first glimpse of the underwater terrain reveals mostly just some seaweed on the bottom, flowing gently in the current. But a closer look reveals a community of bottom-dwelling invertebrates, including vast armies of limpets, snail-like animals with cone-shaped shells. They eat the algae on the rocks. A bright red sea star hunts down limpets for lunch. Nearby, Anemones wait for prey, their stinging tentacles armed and ready for an unwary fish. A sea cucumber uses feathery, branching arms to grab plankton out of the water to eat. It’s a Gentoo penguin, swimming around with the grace of a dolphin and the speed of a torpedo! These birds might not be able to fly, but underwater they sure can swim. Their wings are adapted for providing underwater propulsion, and few animals in the ocean can swim with such grace and speed as a penguin. A Gentoo Penguin is easy to identify because of its bright red beak. Many of these Gentoos are barely more than chicks, waiting patiently for their downy baby feathers to fall off. These poofy feathers keep them warm when they are little, but they’re not good for swimming. As the birds get older and their adult feathers grow in, they start gathering down by the ocean. Soon, they take short hops into the freezing water to hunt in the shallows for krill and small invertebrates. Penguins on the move porpoise in and out of the water like dolphins—but then they can hop right back up on land like no dolphin I’ve ever seen! As I rise toward the surface at the end of my dive, I encounter a huge wall of ice. It’s an iceberg, that drifted into the bay. The wall of the iceberg is covered in dimples, like the ones on a golf ball. This pattern forms as the iceberg melts. Thousands of tiny bubbles are released from the melting ice as well, making the water near the iceberg look like a fizzy drink! The iceberg only rises a few feet above the surface, but its more than thirty feet deep. When you see an iceberg floating by, there’s not that much above water sometimes, but that’s because 90% of an iceberg is underwater. If I flip it over, you can see just how much ice there is. That’s why icebergs are really dangerous to ships, because you can’t see the part that’s hidden underwater. Fun with ice! I carry my camera down to the boat and we’re off. Today we’re hunting quietly for a very special animal. And sure enough, we found them. Leopard seals sleeping on an iceberg. These animals which reach 12 feet long, are the apex predators of the Antarctic. There are no sharks in the waters of Antarctica, but these seals fill that niche in the food chain. Soon, the Leopard seals wake from their nap and come over to investigate us. They have been known to bite and deflate Zodiacs when they are being territorial. The seal makes a few passes to check me out, but he seems a lot more curious than aggressive. Divers are not very common down here. This Leopard seal has probably never seen a diver, or a video camera before. Either he sees his reflection in the lens, or he’s looking for a career in show business. Either way, this animal sure doesn’t seem to mind my presence. The leopard seal is so curious, that he stays around for more than an hour. I even have enough time to get my still camera and take a few pictures.

This Climate Pioneer Is Trying To Stop The Arctic From Melting | VICE on HBO
Permafrost refers to frozen soil and water that covers nearly a quarter of the Northern Hemisphere. With climate change warming the Arctic at an alarming rate, the permafrost is beginning to thaw. While this phenomenon can wreak havoc on infrastructure and transportation in places like Northern Alaska and Siberia, the real danger is the release of carbon and methane gas. There are more greenhouse gases trapped in these deep layers of permafrost than all human fossil fuel emissions released since the industrial age. Due to permafrost thaw, that trapped carbon is starting to escape into the atmosphere, creating a warming feedback loop that will make climate change even worse, and cause the permafrost to thaw even faster. If this continues unchecked, scientists warn we could be on the verge of awakening " the sleeping giant" of climate change. But some innovative climate pioneers are changing that. With the use of both cutting edge genetics, and an experiment that relies on geo-engineering, there is hope that the permafrost thaw can be slowed. VICE Correspondent, Ben Anderson, travels across the Arctic to see the devastating impact of thawing permafrost, and the astonishing solution that might keep it frozen.

Surviving Alone in Alaska
Heimo Korth is the last man standing in 19 million acres of Alaskan wilderness. His neighbors are polar bears and caribous. Say good bye to civilization and see how they do it in the arctic circle on the last frontier in America. In 1980, Jimmy Carter established the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the Alaskan Interior, cutting off 19 million acres of prime boreal wilderness from the mitts of fur trappers, oil tycoons, and would-be lodge owners alike. Only six families of white settlers were grandfathered in and allowed to keep cabins in the refuge—of them, only one still stays there year-round living off the land. His name is Heimo Korth, and he is basically the Omega Man of Americas Final Frontier.

So undocumented migrants and refugees, asylum seekers, wait in limbo for a chance to scale the fence and apply for asylum in Europe. It's the first of many, many hurdles. And it's a tall one.
