Description

This DVD contains two videos which present climate change in the Arctic.
 Episode 1: Presents scientists who are studying the effects of climate change on the land and its animal inhabitants. We see huge ice shelves crumbling into the sea, polar bears struggling to survive and water flowing where there should be only ice. (40 min.)
 Episode 2: Introduces the viewer to people engaged in the race to pump oil and gas from beneath the Arctic ice. As resource extraction accelerates, the ice melts more quickly, whose effects are only starting to be felt. (40 min.)
