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.

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 Files Bid at United Nations for Claiming Territory in Arctic Ocean
 
00:44
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

Cold Rush. Drilling For Oil Amid Arctic Ice
 
23:00
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.

Putin's Arctic ambitions
 
11:22
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.

12 Sea Creatures You Never Knew Existed
 
11:50
Sea creatures you never knew existed. These animals lived in the deepest parts of the ocean & you should be glad that these fish are extinct. Support our Patreon today: https://www.patreon.com/theywillkillyou Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 12 The Dumbo octopus The Dumbo octopus is a species of octopi that resembles the title character of the Disney film. It has prominent ear-like fins making it look like a baby elephant’s head. The Dumbo octopus lives at depths of over 13,000 feet below sea level. They grow to almost 6ft in length and weigh up to 13 pounds. 11 Ocean Sunfish The ocean sunfish is the heaviest bony fish in the world, weighing between 545 and 2,205 pounds. Living on a diet of sea jellies and small fish, which it has to consume in very large quantities because of their poor nutritional value. 10 Humpback Anglerfish The humpback anglerfish, also known as the humpback black devil, lives at depths ranging from 800 to 13,000 feet below the ocean’s surface. They have black soft bodies and large heads, widened mouths and long pointed teeth. Females are capable of eating prey even larger than themselves. 9 Amphipoda Amphipoda is an order of crustaceans that range in size from 0.03 inches to 13.4 inches. Their bodies are laterally compressed and have no carapace. The most interesting thing about amphipods is their feeding behavior. There are more than 9.900 species, and some are flesh-eating scavengers. Amphipods have two front pairs of legs with large claws. 8 Sarcastic Fringehead The sarcastic fringehead is a small fish with a large Predator-like mouth and aggressive territorial behavior. It can only grow up to 12 inches long and lives in the Pacific, off the coast of North America, from San Francisco, California to central Baja California. 7 Pelican eel The Pelican eel, also known as the gulper eel, has a very large mouth which it can open wide enough to swallow bigger fish. Gulper eels live at extreme depths from 1,600 to almost 10,000 ft. 6 Pacific Viperfish The Pacific viperfish lives in the abyssal depths of the deep sea and is easily recognized by its large open mouth. It’s a predatory fish that can reach lengths of 1 foot and it has an iridescent dark silver body. Pacific viperfish cannot close their mouths due to their very large fang-like teeth which they use to trap their prey with. They also have a light or gone located at the end of their dorsal fin rays. 5 Abyssal ghostsharks Pointy-nosed blue chimaeras or more commonly known as abyssal ghostsharks are sea creatures that live in temperate ocean floors down to 6,500 feet deep. They are believed to be some of the oldest fish in existence, as they branched off from sharks nearly 400 million years ago. 4 Stargazer Fish Stargazers are a family of fish that camouflage themselves in the sand on the ocean floor and attack when a fish swims by. Their eyes are mounted on the top of their heads and they have upward facing mouths. Stargazers have two large venomous spines located above their pectoral fins and some species can also cause electric shock. Their way of attacking other fish combined with their ability to cause electric shock and the fact that they also have venomous spines, have caused some to refer to stargazers as “the meanest things in creation”. 3 Immortal Jellyfish The immortal jellyfish is a species of biologically undying jellyfish. It’s found in the Mediterranean Sea and the waters of Japan and has no maximum lifespan. It begins life as a larva and settles down to the sea floor, where it gives rise to a colony of polyps. Each polyp and jellyfish arising from a single larva is a genetically identical clone. The polyps morph into an extensively branched form. Jellyfish then bud off the polyps and continue their life in a free-swimming form. 2 Water Bears Water bears are micro-animals that resemble bears and are believed to be the toughest and most resilient animals on the planet. They can survive incredibly harsh conditions such as exposure to extreme temperatures or pressures, radiation, air deprivation, dehydration and even starvation. They can go without food or water for more than 30 years. Their barrel-shaped bodies usually only grow up to 0.02 inches long and have four pairs of legs, each with four to eight claws. 1 Sea Spiders The sea spider is not really an arachnid, but a marine arthropod. It got the name from its eerie resemblance to a spider. It has eight long legs and a small body. Most species of sea spiders are so small that each of their muscles consists of only one cell. They’re most common in shallow waters where they’re usually found walking along the bottom.

► Ice Race - Into the Unknown - the Story of the ARCTIC (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
49:00
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.

Russia Files Bid at United Nations for Claiming Territory in Arctic Ocean
 
00:54
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 New Silk Road': Arctic melt sparks territorial scramble

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.

Russia: Arctic will become 'attractive territory to live and work in' – Deputy PM Rogozin
 
02:22
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."

The Last Arctic Sea Ice Refuge?
 
47:55
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.

2015: Arctic Sea Ice Maximum Extent Is Lowest On Record
 
00:53
The sea ice cap of the Arctic appeared to reach its annual maximum winter extent on February 25, according to data from the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado, Boulder. At 5.61 million square miles (14.54 million square kilometers), this year’s maximum extent was the smallest on the satellite record and also one of the earliest. Arctic sea ice, frozen seawater floating on top of the Arctic Ocean and its neighboring seas, is in constant change: it grows in the fall and winter, reaching its annual maximum between late February and early April, and then it shrinks in the spring and summer until it hits its annual minimum extent in September. The past decades have seen a downward trend in Arctic sea ice extent during both the growing and melting season, though the decline is steeper in the latter. This year’s maximum was reached 15 days earlier than the 1981 to 2010 average date of March 12, according to NSIDC. Only in 1996 did it occur earlier, on February 24. However, the sun is just beginning to rise on the Arctic Ocean and a late spurt of ice growth is still possible, though unlikely. If the maximum were to remain at 5.61 million square miles, it would be 50,000 square miles below the previous lowest wintertime extent, reached in 2011 at 5.66 million square miles — in percentages, that’s less than a 1 percent difference between the two record low maximums. In comparison, the swings between record lows for the Arctic summertime minimum extent have been much wider: the lowest minimum extent on record, in 2012, was 1.31 million square miles, about 300,000 square miles, or 18.6 percent smaller than the previous record low one, which happened in 2007 and clocked at 1.61 million square miles.

Top 9 Deadliest Animals of the Arctic
 
12:20
Animals of the arctic! Polar Bears, sharks & many more creatures live in this cold polar region covered in snow & ice. Support our Patreon today: https://www.patreon.com/theywillkillyou Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 9 Musk Ox These large Arctic animals are known for their long thick coats & horns. Musk oxen are members of the Bovidae family & their common name was inspired by their strong odor emitted by males during mating season. Both males & females have horns. Musk oxen are also known for their ability to pull weights that surpass their own body weight. They also have hooves that they use to break through solid ice in order to get to the water below. They travel in groups of up to three dozen & are very protective of their young. 8 Snowy Owl The snowy owl is the world’s most northerly bird with a white plumage that echoes its Arctic origins. This creature has a wingspan of more than 4 feet & may exceed 18 inches in height. Snowy owls are ground nesters. Bending over while slowly retreating from the area of the nest is the best course of action. 7 Greenland Shark Also known as the grey shark, the Greenland shark is one of the largest shark species on Earth, with proportions comparable to those of the great white. It’s believed that exceptionally large specimens can grow to be up to 24 feet in length while weighing a staggering 3,100 pounds. Greenland sharks also have the longest lifespan of all known vertebrate species as they can live to be more than 200 years old. Even though they prefer fish, the remains of seals, horses, reindeer, moose & polar bears have been found in the stomachs of Greenland sharks seals. 6 Arctic Wolf The Arctic Wolf or Canis lupus arctos is a gray wolf subspecies native to the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. One of the wolf’s most distinguishable features is it’s fur which is usually completely white. Arctic wolves can eat more than 20 pounds in a single sitting. In the harsh conditions of the Arctic a large animal may provide enough food for the entire pack for several days. 5 Wolverine Much like the popular comic book character that they’ve inspired, wolverines won’t shy away. Despite its small size, with a total length that rarely exceeds 42 inches & an average weight of 12 to 55 pounds, this animal will take on reindeer, moose, wolves & even bears. Even though it is a member of the Mustelidae family that includes weasels & badgers, this stocky & muscular carnivore more closely resembles a bear. Its scientific name, Gulo gulo, is derived from the Latin word for ‘glutton’. 4 Whale It’s hard to imagine what a human being could do if ever faced with this creature. Orcas are toothed whales & the largest members of the oceanic dolphin family. They’re found anywhere around the world from tropical seas to Arctic & Antarctic regions. These gigantic creatures can grow to be nearly 32 feet in length weighing up to 18,000 pounds. 3 Moose Moose are the largest of all deer species & own several interesting characteristics. Aside from height, which for some species may exceed 7 feet, & a weight that frequently goes well over 1,000 pounds, moose males also own large antlers. Drivers should be particularly weary of moose. 2 Walrus This massive semi-aquatic creature can weigh over 4,400 pounds. Because of its imposing size the walrus is also very strong & its body has a layer of blubber several inches thick that protects the animal’s vital organs. The most distinguishing feature owned by the walrus is a pair of large, elongated tusks, which, for males, can measure up to 4 feet in length. 1 Polar Bears Polar bears are the apex predators of their environment & the largest land carnivores in the world. Even though they are very large with average weights between 880 to 1,320 pounds, polar bears are surprisingly nimble both on the ice & in the water. They’re also capable of achieving speeds of up to 25 mph, which means that they’re faster than the average human & also well known for their immense strength. They have an elevated sense of smell, sight & hearing which enable them to detect something across great distances. This combined with their camouflaged fur means that by the time you realize a polar bear is behind you, it could already be too late.

Russia Is Profiting Off Global Warming | VICE on HBO
 
12:10
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.

Surviving Alone in Alaska
 
52:04
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.

𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗩𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗼 For many decades, the Gwich'in Nation has been fighting to defend their land, animals and culture from industrial development. Despite decades of work, in December 2017, for the first time in history, the coastal plains of the Arctic Refuge were opened for oil and gas development. Resource Development companies like SAExploration might soon begin environmentally harmful seismic testing on sacred land. Time is running out. Stand with the Gwich'in and defend the Sacred Coastal Plains. Tell SAExploration: stay out of the Arctic Refuge https://sc.org/2yHXpSC Produced, Shot, & Edited by: Kristin Gates and Jeremy La Zelle The Filmmakers: Throughout 2018, Kristin and Jeremy have dedicated their lives and filmmaking expertise on many challenging unsupported expeditions within the Arctic Refuge to showcase the incredible wildlife, environment, and the wonderful Gwich'in Nation. Yet the journey to protect the Arctic Refuge still continues. In 2019, Kristin and Jeremy will once again embark on a freezing expedition into the heart of the Arctic Refuge to film various events as they unfold and bring awareness to the issue of land conservation and human rights.

New Alert (Mar. 22): No More "Playing Defense" For US Navy - Offensive Weapons Are The Play
 
14:11
No More ‘Playing Defense’ For US Navy; Offensive Weapons Are The Play The Navy is shifting the focus of its surface and submarine fleets from defending against missile attacks to developing new weapons and tactics that prioritize hitting first and fast. “We’ve spent a lot of time over the past years playing defense,” Rear Adm. Ronald Boxall, director of surface warfare, said at the West 2019 conference here. “Waiting for them to come to you, waiting for the missile to come, for the airplane to come. The best defense is a good offense, and the idea that we will go after the threat — at range — is something that we have to be able to do.” The admiral’s comments come as the Navy — and the Pentagon — braces to meet the new challenges presented by modern Chinese surface ships, submarines, and aircraft in the Pacific, and similar, if far fewer, Russian assets in the waters around Europe and the Arctic. One of the changes in recent years is the presence of the growing Chinese fleet, which keeps a close on on what the Americans are doing, and where they’re going. Every time a US ship travels in the western Pacific, “we have a dance partner,” said Vice Adm. John Alexander, commander of Third Fleet, referencing the Chinese warships and aircraft that shadow American vessels. While those encounters are generally professional, more concerning are Chinese medium to long-range missiles that can reach out to hit US bases and ships in the region. Beijing is also speeding ahead with with tests of hypersonic ballistic missiles, which would be difficult to track and shoot down before they hit a US ship or bases in Japan, Guam and Okinawa. Last month, a Chinese government-run newspaper made huge waves when it claimed the PLA was ready to deploy its “ship killer” DF-26 intermediate range ballistic missile which is thought to have a range of roughly 2,400 miles. In December, Chinese Rear Admiral Lou Yuan told an audience that disputes in the South China Sea could be solved by sinking two US aircraft carriers. Testifying before Congress, Indo-Pacific Command chief Adm. Phillip Davidson told senators that “developing and fielding advanced munitions is a critical component” to challenging Chinese threats. He added that he is most interested in innovations in heavy-weight torpedo technology which can “provide force-multiplying effects that currently do not exist, including long-range in-port or at-sea attack and shallow water covert mine laying.” Boxall delivered the same message to Navy colleagues and defense industry execs, saying “we need to go after offensive [weapons] to prevent us from being in a position where we go broke playing defense when in fact we can significantly improve our own position though an aggressive offensive posture.” The Navy already expects to put the anti-ship Naval Strike Missile aboard vessels later this year, and the submarine force is bringing the Harpoon missile back into play after more than a decade without it. Sitting alongside Boxall on the dias was commander of the Pacific Fleet’s submarine force, Rear Adm. Daryl Caudle, who said he wants to “extend well beyond” the capabilities of the Tomahawk Land Attack Missile being used on his subs. Until industry can develop a missile that can fly farther and faster than the TLAM, Caudle’s subs will start packing the Harpoon, for which Boeing is already working on a bevy of upgrades to increase precision and range. Given the ranges of Chinese missiles, “we made a decision that we still needed a little more standoff capability” Caudle added, agreeing with his fellow admirals that the time to play defense was over. Among “the blurry lines of the different phases of conflict..the submarine force, we are going to be a force that seizes the initiative,” he pledged. The Navy has already instituted new training methods for its submarine commanders to ensure they’re more combat ready, and “we have shifted underway periods to be high-end combat operations. Instead of doing a lot of peacetime, shallow water [maneuvers] and ISR stuff, it’s all about combat.” Source breakingdefense.com
This Climate Pioneer Is Trying To Stop The Arctic From Melting | VICE on HBO
 
13:51
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.

More Ancient Roads of the Far North
 
10:56
Wow! I thought I posted this in September 2017 when I made it! Well... better late than not at all! : ) When I first began exploring the wildlands of northwest Canadian arctic for evidence of lost civilizations, I began in the Mackenzie River Delta lands. Throughout time, major rivers have always been main travel routes and areas of settlement for civilizations around the globe, and the Mackenzie River is the 2nd largest river in North America, and 13th longest in the world. The Mackenzie flows northward from northern Alberta and British Columbia, through the Northwest Territories with tributaries that flow through the Yukon Territory, before it empties into the Arctic Ocean (Beaufort Sea). What I initially found was astonishing and captivated my interest right away. Series of triple roads crossing the remote landscape, running perfectly straight over the rugged terrain for miles. Sme roads are 40 feet (12 m) wide and appear to be of great age given their eroded and overgrown condition. Some cross large and small lakes and appear to vanish in the overgrowth before re-appearing miles away, but on their same original course. Some of the trees found growing on these roads are hundreds of years old. The roads are perforated by crater-like lakes in many areas, both large and small, and appear to have formed after construction of the roads, and some of the roads run straight into a large tributary feeding the Arctic Ocean (Beaufort Sea), where the shorelines are clearly eroded and weathered over time. Were these crater-like lakes formed by a yet to be documented impact event by comet or comet tail debris from ages ago? Other roads have curious V-shaped figures along the course, some at regular intervals and of similar lengths. What are their purpose is a guess, but some of the V's have been extremely eroded and difficult to see initially... again owing to the great age of these constructions. Keep in mind, weathering of landforms is extremely slow in these high arctic lands above the Arctic Circle. Fossil fuel exploration in the arctic during the past 50 years have resorted to clearing the land for seismic lines to use radar tucks for locating fuel deposit. There are no records for seismic lines built in this are of the Northwest Territories, so these ancient roads remain a mystery! Who made them, how long ago and for what purposes?!

► Ice Race - Border Conflicts about OIL (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
49:00
The Arctic is an area with massive reserves that are extremely important for billions of people – but with unclear borderlines. History has shown us that this is an extremely dangerous situation. “Border Conflict” explains that the borders in the Arctic are disputed and have not been finally determined despite the fact that they have been defined in accordance with international criteria. Zoia Vylka Ravna is a member of the indigenous Nenets people, but she has lived away from the Russian tundra for a long time. She is now returning to her homeland in the far north of Russia where she becomes witness to the fact that her people’s traditional grazing grounds have been invaded by a new industry. Like the members of many other indigenous groups around the Polar basin she feels as though she has been robbed and forgotten. Will the countries in the north comply with international regulations while a desperate hunt for energy resource is taking place? Will it be possible to share this area without any military conflicts arising – and will the exploitation of natural resources be able to occur peacefully? In the final episode of the series “Ice Race” we stand at an important and dangerous crossroads in our search for more oil and gas. Because even though we are starting to use new sources of energy, the world will be dependent on petroleum activities for many decades to come. Despite numerous expeditions, our knowledge about the seas around the North Pole is still almost non-existent. The sovereigny of the countries around the polar basin only extends for 200 nautical miles. The remaining polar areas are administered by the UN. The race to find oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean has meant that it is therefore even more important for the five Arctic countries, i.e. USA, Russia, Canada, Norway and Denmark, to secure more of the polar basin. All these countries are therefore fighting intensely over what are sometimes overlapping border claims. These claims extend all the way to the outer limits of the continental shelf, i.e. the shallow waters off these countries’ coasts. If the new race culminates in predatory activities and major conflict, the indigenous populations could become the first and greatest loosers!

It is home to the Sentinelese who, often violently, reject any contact with the outside world, and are among the last people worldwide to remain virtually untouched by modern civilization. As such, only limited information about the island is known. Nominally, the island belongs to the South Andaman administrative district, part of the Indian union territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. In practice, Indian authorities recognise the islanders' desire to be left alone and restrict their role to remote monitoring. Thus the island can be considered a sovereign entity under Indian protection. North Sentinel lies 36 kilometres (22 mi) west of the town of Wandoor in South Andaman Island, 50 km (31 mi) west of Port Blair, and 59.6 kilometres (37.0 mi) north of its counterpart South Sentinel Island. It has an area of about 59.67 km2 (23.04 sq mi) and a roughly square outline. Snake Island- Ilha da Queimada Grande, also known as Snake Island, one of many Snake Islands around the world, is an island off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. It is administered as part of the municipality of Peruíbe in the State of São Paulo. The island is small in size and has many different types of terrain, ranging from bare rock to rainforest. The island has a temperate climate. The island is the only home of the critically endangered, venomous Bothrops insularis (golden lancehead pit viper), which has a diet of birds. The snakes became trapped on the island when rising sea levels covered up the land that connected it to the mainland. This left the snakes to adapt to their environment, increase rapidly in population and render the island dangerous to public visitation. Queimada Grande is closed to the public in order to protect this snake population; access is only available to the Brazilian Navy and selected researchers vetted by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation, the Brazilian federal conservation unit. Ilha da Queimada Grande has a variety of vegetation. The island is partly covered in rainforest and partly bare rock and grassy cleared areas, a result of deforestation. The deforestation is the origin of the island's name: the term “Queimada”, in Portuguese, means to burn because when locals attempted to clear land for a banana plantation on the island, they had to clear rainforest using this technique. A lighthouse was constructed in 1909 to steer ships away from the island. The last human inhabitants left the island when the lighthouse was converted to being automated. Area 51- The United States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, within the Nevada Test and Training Range. The base's current primary purpose is publicly unknown; however, based on historical evidence, it most likely supports the development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems (black projects). The intense secrecy surrounding the base has made it the frequent subject of conspiracy theories and a central component to unidentified flying object (UFO) folklore. Svalbard Global Seed Vault- The Svalbard Global Seed Vault (Norwegian: Svalbard globale frøhvelv) is a secure seed bank on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen near Longyearbyen in the remote Arctic Svalbard archipelago, about 1,300 kilometers (810 mi) from the North Pole.
