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.

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.

Arctic sea ice regrowth is unprecedentedly eff'd: Part 1/2
 
15:01
Arctic sea ice regrowth is eff'd this year; in fact is truly horrible. As the ice extent, defined as regions with at least 15% ice tries to expand via sea water freezing; it is melted out by extremely high sea surface temperatures. Then the cooled surface water mixes via wave action with warmer water down to as much as 200 meters and the warm mixtures at the surface continue the process of sea ice melting. Without strong ice regrowth, we will reach the state we are heading to. Namely, zero sea ice. We must break this vicious cycle, by declaring a global climate emergency, and implementing the three-legged-stool solution set.

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
 
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.

The Crazy Solution For Keeping The Melting Arctic Frozen | 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.

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.

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.

► 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.

'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.

► 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!

The Search For The Northwest Passage - Part 1 of 2 (Exploration Documentary) | Timeline
 
51:34
Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK The Historical Story of Finding the Holy Grail of Exploration, the Northwest Passage The search for a sea route across the top of the world linking Europe to Asia - the fabled Northwest Passage - was one of the most difficult and dangerous in the history of exploration. 2005 marks the 100th anniversary of Roald Amundsen's discovery of the elusive route. The original 1845 expedition led by Sir John Franklin resulted in Franklin and his entire team of 128 men disappearing whilst searching for the passage. What happened to Franklin's expedition is one of the Arctic's most enduring mysteries, Was the expedition poisoned by its own supplies? Did some members of the expedition commit cannibalism or were they killed by the local Inuit? It wasn't until 1903, that an expedition finally found a way through which was lead by Roald Amundsen. His success owed much to the experience of those who had gone before him. But unlike them, he also understood that to survive in such conditions, he had to learn from the native Inuit. The skills Amundsen learnt in the Arctic would later pave the way for his successful assault on the South Pole. The two-part series concentrates on these two famous expeditions. The stories are told using dramatic reconstructions, CGI and documentary techniques. New information sheds light on what happened to Franklin's expedition and also shows how Amundsen was able to succeed when so many before had failed. Documentary first broadcast in 2005.

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
 
07:36
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.

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."

Canadians are getting a look at the Arctic
 
02:22
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.

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.

Arctic Survival - Land and Live in the Arctic - (1943) US Army Air Forces Training Film; WWII
 
59:21
1943 US Army Air Forces Training Film Arctic Survival Land and Live in the Arctic "This training film presents the viewer with a scenario in which a squadron of fighter planes took off for flight over arctic territory, and one of the pilots was forced down by engine trouble. The viewer learns how the pilot selected a landing spot, used a parachute for clothing and shelter, obtained food and firewood, and attempted to aid in his own rescue - all in snow and sub-zero temperature." National Archives Identifier: 6050215. Produced by the AAF Training Film Production Laboratory at Wright Field. US Army Air Forces Training Film TF1-3403 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/336th_Training_Group The 336th Training Group is a United States Air Force group with the mission to provide Air Force survival training. The group is located at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, with one subordinate unit at Naval Air Station Pensacola, FL, and one at Eielson Air Force Base, AK. The unit's historical lineage goes back to the 336th Bombardment Group which was a World War II United States Army Air Forces training organization. It served in the United States during World War II... Overview The 336th TG operates the U.S. Air Force Survival School. The school provides instruction in Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) training primarily to aircrew members. Instruction concentrates on the principles, techniques, and skills necessary to survive in any environment and return with honor... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic The Arctic (/ˈɑrktɪk/ or /ˈɑrtɪk/) is a polar region located at the northernmost part of the Earth. The Arctic consists of the Arctic Ocean and parts of Alaska (United States), Canada, Finland, Greenland (Denmark), Iceland, Norway, Russia, and Sweden. The Arctic region consists of a vast ocean with a seasonally varying ice cover, surrounded by treeless permafrost. The area can be defined as north of the Arctic Circle (66° 33'N), the approximate limit of the midnight sun and the polar night. Alternatively, it can be defined as the region where the average temperature for the warmest month (July) is below 10 °C (50 °F); the northernmost tree line roughly follows the isotherm at the boundary of this region. Socially and politically, the Arctic region includes the northern territories of the eight Arctic states, although by natural science definitions much of this territory is considered subarctic. The Arctic region is a unique area among Earth's ecosystems. The cultures in the region and the Arctic indigenous peoples have adapted to its cold and extreme conditions. In recent years the extent of the sea ice has declined. Life in the Arctic includes organisms living in the ice, zooplankton and phytoplankton, fish and marine mammals, birds, land animals, plants and human societies... The Arctic's climate is characterized by cold winters and cool summers. Precipitation mostly comes in the form of snow. The Arctic's annual precipitation is low, with most of the area receiving less than 50 cm (20 in). High winds often stir up snow, creating the illusion of continuous snowfall. Average winter temperatures can be as low as −40 °C (−40 °F), and the coldest recorded temperature is approximately −68 °C (−90 °F). Coastal Arctic climates are moderated by oceanic influences, having generally warmer temperatures and heavier snowfalls than the colder and drier interior areas. The Arctic is affected by current global warming, leading to Arctic sea ice shrinkage and Arctic methane release. Due to the poleward migration of the planet's isotherms (about 35 mi (56 km) per decade during the past 30 years as a consequence of global warming), the Arctic region (as defined by tree line and temperature) is currently shrinking. Perhaps the most spectacular result of Arctic shrinkage is sea ice loss. There is a large variance in predictions of Arctic sea ice loss, with models showing near-complete to complete loss in September from 2040 to some time well beyond 2100. About half of the analyzed models show near-complete to complete sea ice loss in September by the year 2100.

James Stavridis: Power Dynamics at Sea
 
58:09
While many are likely to see land as a symbol of power, water could easily rise to a greater level of importance when thinking about global power and regional influence. Ninety-five percent of international trade occurs by way of oceans, and the United States is one of many nations which greatly benefits from this global system. In terms of territorial dispute, the South China Sea is where China continues to claim territory and expand its power. Russia, through its naval base on the Syrian coast, seeks to augment its global influence; it is in a position where it can contribute its military might to the war in Syria and initiate exercises and train with other nations. Above all, the Arctic region will likely engender a host of conflicts as ice melts, shipping lanes open, and resources become more accessible. How will the world's leading nations navigate their changing power dynamics at sea? Retired US Admiral James Stavridis, former Supreme Allied Commander for NATO, joins Jane Wales, CEO of Global Philanthropy Forum and World Affairs, to discuss his new book, Sea Power, which underlines the geopolitical significance of the oceans. This program is part of the George P. Shultz Lecture Series.

It was set up to detect incoming Soviet bombers during the Cold War, and provide early warning of a land based invasion.

Alright everyone! Episode 28 is on and this time we'll let you know a bit about what it takes to prepare for an Arctic expedition. We will be sailing to some of the most remote parts of the planet and beeing self sufficient is mandatory! We will need to get our boat in tip top condition and also we'll step in to some very unfamiliar territory. Guns! And we don't know anything about guns! In order to step on land outside the settlements of Svalbard, we are obliges to be carrying a rifle for Polar Bear protection. So if we want to be able to rent a rifle, we will first have to prove we are able to safely handle a fire arm. Also on this episode, we finish installing our Schenker 60 watermaker, fix our Rutland Wind Generator and some other maintenance jobs.

The Arctic Heritage and Beauty of Tallurutiup Tariunga (Lancaster Sound)
 
04:00
Canada's Lancaster Sound, called Tallurutiup Tariunga in Inuktitut, is one of the Arctic Ocean’s richest marine habitats—an area of stunning natural beauty and deep cultural significance for Inuit who live there. Located at the eastern entrance to the Northwest Passage, the sound’s abundant sea life has sustained Inuit communities for centuries. Through poetry set to spectacular landscapes, this video shows why this region deserves protection, reflecting its myth and magic while not losing sight of the people who call it home. Based on a poem by Iqaluit artist Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, the video retells part of the Inuit creation myth of Nuliajuk, goddess of the sea, in light of the profound changes facing local communities due to climate instability and industrial development. The script is narrated by Jeannie Arreak-Kullualik, of Pond Inlet, a community perched on the shore of Lancaster Sound. The video poses a series of rhetorical questions to Nuliajuk, who was once a young woman reluctant to marry. Eventually, she was tricked into marrying a raven disguised as a hunter. She tried to escape the marriage by fleeing in her father’s kayak, but the angry raven gave chase and unleashed a furious storm. Terrified that they would perish in the gale, her father cast Nuliajuk into the sea. When she clung to the gunwales and threatened to capsize the boat, her father cut off her fingers. According to the myth, her hands became flippers, and her fingers turned into marine mammals and sea creatures, offering sustenance to Inuit for generations. Pew’s Oceans North Canada has worked since 2009 to help establish a national marine conservation area in Lancaster Sound, a designation that would help protect its ecological balance by limiting industrial development. In 2010, the federal government announced proposed boundaries for the national marine park and set up a steering committee to work with the Government of Nunavut, the Qikiqtani Inuit Association, and regional Inuit communities to finalize plans. That process has not yet been completed. For more information, visit Pew’s Oceans North Canada http://www.pewtrusts.org/iu/projects/oceans-north-canada

Unexplained Nuclear Activity Detected in the Arctic

The Arctic has been receiving increased scrutiny from military conspiracy watchers lately thanks to several odd developments which seem to hint that strange doings are afoot in the frozen north. Last year, a mysterious pinging noise was detected on the floor of the Arctic sea just north of Baffin Bay in Canada. One of the most popular theories was that the noise could be some sort of secret military technology or a Soviet Russian submarine. -written by Brett Tingley -Article From MysteriousUniverse.org -http://mysteriousuniverse.org/2017/02/unexplained-nuclear-activity-detected-in-the-arctic/ LIKE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE https://www.facebook.com/mysteriousoutpost FOLLOW US ON TWITTER https://twitter.com/MysteriousMikeB FOLLOW US ON BLOGTALKRADIO Live Interviews every Thursday at 8pm CST http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mysteriousoutpost DISCLAIMER]: Truth Perception Media does not necessarily agree or disagree with the information in the video.

Uncharted Territory: We are now in unfamiliar territory indeed.

Uncharted Territory: We are now in unfamiliar territory indeed. The World Meteorological Organization's annual report on climate change in 2016 sums up this man-made crisis ominously: We are now in unfamiliar territory indeed. The UN-based agency has reported that extreme weather and climate conditions continue well into 2017, after 2016 it topped the global temperature charts and broke other climate records. Even without El Niño, the partly responsible stream for the 2016 record climate temperatures, land and sea continues to rise, sea levels continue to rise and the level of Arctic sea ice continues to decline further. This year, on February 11, 743 temperature records break in the US. only. The region has witnessed the polar equivalent of a heat wave and three times the height of the Arctic winters, bringing it closer to the melting point. Closer to home, Mumbai saw temperatures between 36-38 degrees Celsius in the second week of February. Petteri Taalas, Secretary-General, WMO This report confirms that the year 2016 was the warmest recorded - a remarkable 1.1 ° C above the pre-industrial period, which is 0.06 ° C above the previous record set In 2015. This increase in global temperature is consistent with other changes occurring in the climate system. Worldwide average sea temperatures were also the warmest in history, global sea levels continued to rise, and the Arctic sea ice extent was well below average for most of the year.  With levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere constantly breaking new records, the influence of human activids on the climate system. The powerful El Niño phenomenon fueled global warming in 2016, at the top of long-term climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. Sea levels rose strongly due to El Niño by almost 15 mm, while the average increase is recorded at 3 mm. #UnchartedTerritory #WereStillHere #braceforimpact #YNWA #videogame #veryuneasy #Unchartered4 #trumpleforeskin #Touchdown #stupidflowtricks #storytelling #ymasciencia

The Arctic melt: A wake up call, not a business opportunity!
 
01:09
2012 saw a record loss of Arctic sea ice in the summer. Across the globe, an enormous number of scientists & experts from various organisations have warned about the unprecedented Arctic melt, a message which does not seem to have reached the majority of politicians... For the Greens the Arctic ice melt must be a wake up call for better and faster climate ACTION! The political world must understand that the critical threshold in the fight against global warming has now clearly been breached and that it is time to put climate back on the political agenda! At a time when the European Institutions are freezing the debate on more ambitious climate targets and the international community dragging their feet at the international climate talks, the Greens want EUROPE TO GET GREENER & THAT IT ENCOURAGES THE OTHERS!
