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.

08:27
The 2009 Arctic sea ice maximum extent has just been reached. This is a measurement of the amount of sea ice covering the Arctic at the end of each winter. For the past several decades the maximum Arctic ice extent has been declining. Scientists monitor this vital element of our planet from space with a variety of different spacecraft that make global measurements in remote and treacherous locations not easily accessible from the ground.

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."

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.

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.

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.

► 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.

The new cold war: The race for Arctic oil and gas - Counting the Cost
 
25:01
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.

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.

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 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.

Amazing Proof of Ionospheric Heaters Melting the Arctic
 
27:18
Our planet is being deliberately killed, and this video is some of the most powerful evidence ever captured. This video shows four stationary holes in the clouds, near Vancouver Island, April 27, 2016. The holes were caused by the US Navy Ionospheric Heater, Missile Defense Agency ships, and land based microwave transmitters. Also, Navy transmitters in the Aleutian Islands are used to steer areas of Low Pressure, weaken them, and hold them on the southern coast of Alaska. The fires in Canada are a DIRECT result of this secret jet stream control program. If you look at the North American Drought Monitor map, you can see how the drought lines up with the destroyed low pressure systems: https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/temp-and-precip/drought/nadm/maps Please send this video to everyone you know, in Canada. Whoever is running this program is LIABLE for the damages in Canada!!! This top secret Ionospheric Heater program is speeding up the release of billions of tons of the nightmare greenhouse gas, methane, which is still frozen in the shallow Arctic seabed (only 100 feet deep). Methane has increased 3% in only three years, which is almost a 1% increase in total greenhouse gas, IN ONLY THREE YEARS!!! The new methane is coming from the melting Arctic, fracking, tar sands, and the Los Angeles natural gas leak. This is the tipping point, that scientists have warned about, for decades. Arctic ice coverage is the lowest in history, for this time of year. Alaska is setting many high temperature records (seven in April). The leaking methane is accelerating the heating of the planet, and this top secret program is making it worse, as fast as possible! All governments, and the International Criminal Court, must add this Arctic melting program to the Rome Statute on Genocide, so those responsible can be arrested and prosecuted. These classified jet stream control technologies COULD be used to keep the Arctic frozen, instead, they are being used to melt it, as quickly as possible. This is a genocide conspiracy against the entire human race, and MUST be added to the list of international crimes. Mankind has very little time left, to avoid a global catastrophe. We must stop this Arctic heating program now! The "Vancouver Holes" are a response to international complaints about US weather control operations in international waters (polar vortex, etc), so the US Navy moved the operation into US Territorial waters. Any persistent high pressure near the ocean could be caused by US Navy Aegis ships. I believe these ships are powerful enough to create man made high pressure, and keep it in one place indefinitely. All the nations of the world should BAN any kind of MEGAWATT military radar from their territory. The US Navy Aegis ships have a peak power of over 5 megawatts, with less than 1.7 degree beamwidth. This is enough to affect the Ionosphere, and control the weather, in my opinion. Therefore, those ships should be banned by each nation from their territorial waters, and constantly monitored in international waters, to detect violations of the ENMOD treaty. ALL this technology needs to be declassified, so the BEST scientists can decide how to use it for the good of the planet, istead of the most corrupt and secretive military commanders using for unknown purposes. Please forward to scientists, and law enforcement around the world. Thank you for watching. (PS - do not loose hope! We can still save the planet, by fertilizing the oceans with soluble iron, releasing all classified "free energy" patents, and quickly manufacturing carbon-free energy sources, based on those patents. BUT, if we do not do these things immediately, the Earth will heat faster each year, making life impossible in only a decade, or two.)

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.

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.

The Rise and Fall of the Dutch Empire
 
06:25
The Dutch Empire comprised the overseas territories controlled by the Dutch Republic and, later, the modern Netherlands from the 17th century to the mid-1950s. The Dutch followed Portugal and Spain in establishing an overseas colonial empire. For this, they were aided by their skills in shipping and trade and the surge of nationalism accompanying the struggle for independence from Spain. Alongside the British, the Dutch initially built up colonial possessions on the basis of indirect state capitalist corporate colonialism, via the Dutch East and West India Companies. Dutch exploratory voyages such as those led by Willem Barentsz, Henry Hudson and Abel Tasman revealed vast new territories to Europeans, particularly in the Arctic Sea, North America, in the Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand. With Dutch naval power rising rapidly as a major force from the late 16th century, the Netherlands dominated global commerce during the second half of the 17th century during a cultural flowering known as the Dutch Golden Age. The Netherlands lost many of its colonial possessions, as well as its global power status, to the British when the metropole fell to French armies during the Revolutionary Wars. The restored portions of the Dutch Empire, notably the Dutch East Indies and Suriname, remained under Dutch control until the decline of European imperialism following World War II. Since the 1950s, the Netherlands has been organized as constituent countries composing the Kingdom of the Netherlands. As of October 10, 2010, the countries within the kingdom are the Netherlands proper, Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten.

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

7 Facts about the Northwest Territories

If the Yukon is the far north at its most accessible, the Northwest Territories is the region at its most uncompromising. Just three roads nibble at the edges of this almost unimaginably vast area, which, together with Nunavut, occupies a third of Canada’s landmass. The Northwest Territories is about the size of India but contains only 44,000 people, almost half of whom live in or around Yellowknife. 2. The present-day territory came under government authority in July 1870, after the Hudson's Bay Company transferred Rupert's Land and the North-Western Territory to the British Crown, which subsequently transferred them to the Dominion of Canada, giving it the name the North-west Territories. Between 1925 and 1999, the Northwest Territories covered a land area of 3,439,296 km2 larger than that of India. On April 1, 1999, the existing Northwest Territories was split into two parts, with a separate Nunavut territory being formed to represent the Inuit people. 3. If you want to make the big bucks in Canada mostly everyone would think you need to move to Alberta right? Wrong! Per capita residents in the NWT earn on average nearly $20,000 more per year, even the average income is higher in the Northwest Territories by nearly $500 over Alberta! 4. NWT is actually the world’s second largest producer of diamonds in the world. The diamonds found in the Arctic territory are not only more pure than the diamonds found in africa, but they are of an overall higher quality and mined ethically where each worker is paid quite a fair wage. 5. Yellowknife is the capital of the Northwest Territories. Yellowknife has almost half the population of the entire Northwest Territories. It’s currently the only city in the Northwest Territories! 6. The Dempster Highway is Canada’s northernmost motorway, carrying road-trippers across the Arctic Circle to Inuvik in the Mackenzie River Delta. And now you can push even farther: The new Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway will take you to Tuktoyaktuk, an Arctic Ocean settlement famous for pingos, caribou and Inuvialuit culture. 7. If you travel to the uttermost tip of the territory, you’ll experience what may be the harshest weather on Earth. Meteorologists say the icebound Parry Islands, near the top of the Arctic Archipelago, suffer from a combo of clouds, dampness, wind and unrelenting cold that make this the most extreme, least habitable corner of Canada.

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.
