The melting ice of the Arctic (1/2) | DW Documentary

  • Опубліковано 29 бер 2023
  • Soon the Arctic will be ice-free in summer. While many are concerned about the consequences for the global climate, countries like Russia and the US, as well as China and Canada see an ice-free Arctic as an opportunity, offering everything from new trade routes to mineral resources and tourism.
    Part 2: • The melting ice o...
    In two episodes, this documentary reports on a region of the world that is changing dramatically because of climate change, affecting the lives of the people who make their home in the Arctic. The film team experiences first-hand what it means to live at the mercy of the forces of nature in this inhospitable region, which makes for an adventurous and frightening journey.
    In the first part of the documentary, they fly low over the fascinating icy landscape of Greenland, filming the fjords and mighty glaciers of the loneliest places in the world. The current Arctic thaw, however, is felt far beyond this lovely, isolated place. Progressing faster here than in the rest of the world, climate change is moving the Arctic into the focus of global politics. Littoral states and world powers are fighting for influence here. At the heart of their interest: access to mineral resources and new transport routes. Because, as the ice melts, new, shorter shipping routes are opening up. Is a new conflict looming at the North Pole?
    And how do the people in the far north experience the change in their environment? The film team travels through the northern reaches of the US, Canada, Greenland, Norway and Russia. The journalists experience the wonder of nature in these regions and meet people who have adapted over centuries to life in these cold, inhospitable realms. Now, they face a new struggle, as global power players swoop in.
    In Alaska, the camera team meets fishermen who have been driven from American fishing grounds near the Bering Strait by Russian fighter planes and warships. The fishermen are demanding that their government provide a greater military presence in the region to protect their interests.
    The region has been the scene of a long-term dispute over water ownership. For the US, the Northwest Passage counts as international waters, while Canada considers it national territory. The conflict over the Arctic could soon escalate. Because scientists are certain: In a few decades, the Arctic will be ice-free in summer.

      @OIdiesCentral - "Even i can manipulate a satellite photo of the north with disappearing ice"
      I didn't choose to believe that greenhouse gases released by human activity cause the average temperature of the atmosphere and the oceans to rise because of someone's photo manipulation skills. I chose so because overwhelming majority of the scientist say that it happening is a practical certainty. I have read their arguments (on the level I can understand), and the arguments make sense, contrary to what the (increasingly wacky) climate denialists say.
      I don't actually believe what they say is true, I assume it is true. I also think it's childish to think that in a modern society you can just believe (or assume) things that you see with your own eyes. When a doctor says that your child has a cancer and he or she needs to be treated, do you say that you don’t believe him unless you see the cancer with your own eyes? When he (after looking at you strangely) shows you a scan, do you say to him that he might have manipulated the image, and choose to not believe him? Of course you don’t.
      I’m sorry, but in my opinion your argument is very childish. Do you seriously thing that the scientists have manipulated all the millions of photos and different measurements they have taken of the atmosphere, glaciers, oceans, etc. during the last decades? Just because you can imagine a conspiracy doesn’t mean that there is one (shouldn’t you have seen something with your own eyes to believe such an incredible thing? - yes, a conspiracy of that nature and scale would be incredible).

    I have never been to the Arctic but am impressed with its beauty as shown by your documentary. I have in fact been to the Antarctic and my impression is that while the climates are similar, they appear to be very different. The only colors you see there is white, black, blue, and whatever the skies feel like displaying, but most often it is gray. The mountains are black when you can see them. I am not in the position to compare which is more treacherous, but the fact that people can still live in the Arctic in their native habitat, and no one lives in the Antarctic (other than now hunkered down scientific researchers) is a clue. When confronted with such a place it is impossible to leave without a deep sense of nature's spirituality.

      You will render justice to the fatherless and to those who are crushed, So that mortal man of the earth may no longer make them afraid. O that Israel’s salvation may come from Zion!+
      When Jehovah gathers back his captive people,
      Let Jacob be joyful, let Israel rejoice.
      26 For they pursue the one whom you struck,
      And they keep recounting the pains of those you wounded.
      27 Add more guilt to their guilt,
      And may they have no share in your righteousness.
      5 “Hear this, you priests,+
      Pay attention, O house of Israel,
      Listen, O house of the king,
      For the judgment involves you;
      Because you are a trap to Mizʹpah
      And a net spread over Taʹbor.+
      2 And those falling away* have sunk deep* in slaughter,
      And I am warning* all of them.

    Magnificently presented. So very important to have the global perspective with critical contributions from the indigenous peoples of the Arctic. It is they who best understand this environment and recognize the changes wrought by the masses of humanity 1,000s of kilometers away. Fortunately, there are now multinational recognitions of their expertise and collaborative efforts to understand the changes and educate world leaders. Looking forward to part 2. Danke Schoen DW!

    Cod is a commoners fish and there is a moratorium on fishing it on regular intervals across the Arctic and the North Sea. Barents Sea produces the best king crabs ,but it’s a hostile environment to go fishing. TheArctic region in Sweden,Finland,Norway,Russia is very important for many species like the Polar bears,Arctic hare,Arctic fox,Reindeer,Elk ,Arctic wolf, it’s difficult when environment itself doesn’t exists ,none will bother about species extinction.

I grew up 28 miles east of Los Angeles California and remember back in the late 60's and early 70's the local mountains would get a tremendous amount of snow. Now it seems only the highest peaks get any snow.
    Times are changing the weather is changing and not many notice it.

    This was a good Arctic video! The use of Greenland during WW2 by both the Germans and the USA for detecting weather events for Europe wasn't something I'd heard about before. Russian military encroachments into non Russian waters where western Pacific Ocean US fishermen fish and into the Canadian Arctic waters likely with submarines was interesting.
    If Russia still owned Alaska with the Aleutian Islands instead of selling them to the USA it would certainly be a very different global make up in the Arctic. Maybe Russia as a whole would have developed differently. It would have been somewhat different with discussions of Alaskan development being constantly discussed in Moscow in the early 1900s. Alaska would have still likely had a gold rush in the late 1800s with Russia needing to increase government presence in the area. A great deal of trade would have started to develop between Russian Alaska, Canada and the USA. Business aspects of Russian Alaska wouldn't be something cash poor Russia would have wanted to ignore.
    I thought the remnants of a Russian orthodox christian church on the Aleutian Islands was quite telling with the Russian Ukrainian war causing a reassessment of the Russian mentality and that it is no longer the atheist Soviet Union, but is now better thought of as having returned to the underlining morals of the conservative Russian orthodox church.
    Russians still lack an average first world income. They are still considered to be in the second world of developing countries. Russia does has a huge amount of land and world travel passages per citizen compared to any other country. It makes sense for Russia wanting to provide a Russian north east Arctic shipping route for India and China both having over 1.4 billion populations.

      For Jehovah had caused the Syrian camp to hear the sound of war chariots and horses, the sound of a huge army. So they said to one another: “Look! The king of Israel has hired the kings of the Hitʹtites and the kings of Egypt to come against us!” They immediately got up and fled in the evening darkness, leaving their tents, horses, donkeys, and the whole camp just as it was, and they fled for their lives.
      When these lepers reached the outskirts of the camp, they entered into one of the tents and began to eat and drink. They carried away from there silver, gold, and garments and went and hid them. Then they returned and entered another tent and carried things away from there and went and hid them.
      Finally they said to one another: “What we are doing is not right. This day is a day of good news! If we hesitate and wait until dawn, we will deserve to be punished. Let us now go and report this at the king’s house.” So they went and called out to the gatekeepers of the city and reported to them: “We went into the camp of the Syrians, but nobody was there-we did not hear anyone at all. There were only the horses and donkeys tied and the tents left just as they were.” At once the gatekeepers called out, and it was reported inside the king’s house.
      Immediately the king got up by night and said to his servants: “Please let me tell you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we are hungry so they left the camp to hide in the field, saying, ‘They will come out of the city, and we will catch them alive and enter into the city.’” Then one of his servants said: “Please, let some men take five of the remaining horses that are in the city. Look! They will end up the same as all the crowd of Israel that remain here. Look! They will end up the same as all the crowd of Israel that perished. Let us then send them out and see.” So they took two chariots with horses, and the king sent them out to the camp of the Syrians, saying: “Go and see.” They followed them as far as the Jordan, and the entire way was covered with garments and utensils that the Syrians had thrown away as they fled in panic. The messengers returned and reported it to the king.
      The people then went out and plundered the camp of the Syrians, so that a seah measure of fine flour came to be worth a shekel, and two seah measures of barley came to be worth a shekel, according to the word of Jehovah. The king had appointed the adjutant whom he relied on to be in charge of the gate, but the people trampled him to death at the gate, just as the man of the true God had told the king when he came down to him. It happened just as the man of the true God had said

    great doc, living in the french alps im seeing climate changing every day, glaciers melting, no longer permafrost on mountains, temperature rising, recently i saw stunning capture of glacier melting at Helheim glacier Greenland from Alex Zuga, never seen something like that before even on a movie...

      Ten big climate changes occurred over the past 15,000 years, and another 60 smaller changes occurred in the past 5,000 years.
      Based on new analysis of ice cores from Greenland to Antarctica, global temperatures rose and fell from 9 to 15 degrees in a century or less -- swings that were astonishing.

      A recent study published in the journal Climate of the Past shows there are more Arctic glaciers and ice caps at present, and they extend farther and are thicker, than at several times since the end of the last ice age, contrary to what is commonly claimed.
      The research indicates the Arctic was warmer than at present between 8,000 and 4,000 years ago, with 80 percent to 100 percent of glaciers and ice caps (GICs) being smaller than today or absent entirely. If the research is correct, the Arctic’s modern ice extent is among the largest of the last 10,000 years, higher than even during the Roman and Medieval Warm Periods.
      As No Tricks Zone reports, the paper from Laura J. Larocca and Yarrow Axford, scientists with the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Northwestern University, indicates “any recession of GICs in the last few centuries is but a partial return to a former period of much greater warmth.”
      The scientists’ conclusions are based on a comprehensive survey they conducted of the Arctic glaciers and ice caps near lakes and coasts in Alaska, Arctic Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Scandinavia, Svalbard, and the Russian Arctic. Larocca and Axford write,
      For each region and for the full Arctic, we summarize evidence for when GICs were smaller than today or absent altogether, indicating warmer-than-present summers, and evidence for when GICs regrew in lake catchments, indicating summer cooling. … [T]he full Arctic compilation suggests that the majority (50 % or more) of studied GICs were smaller than present or absent by ∼10 ka. We find the highest percentage (>90 %) of Arctic GICs smaller than present or absent in the middle Holocene at ∼ 7-6 ka, probably reflecting more spatially ubiquitous and consistent summer warmth during this period than in the early Holocene. … Our review finds that in the first half of the Holocene, most of the Arctic's small GICs became significantly reduced or melted away completely in response to summer temperatures that, on average, were only moderately warmer than today.

      Those mountain glaciers all formed quite recently in recorded history. Grapes were grown hundreds of miles north of current locations before this happened. The Arctic currently has a record amount of ice compared to most of its history since the ice age "ended." An unusual period of climate stability over the past 5000+ years is the only reason our current civilization was allowed to form. This stability will end and there isn`t a single thing we can do to change it. We`d better be hoping and praying for future warmth instead of freezing cold unless you love mass starvation. But there is no hope for humans...not with the appalling level of ignorance about science and history I see in the bizarre comments here.

    Strangely Scoresby Sund ( the settlement... Ittoqqortoormit is just to hard ) and Constable Pynt ( the airstrip, Nerlerit Inaat nowadays ) don't seem to have changed much in 32 years. ( yeah I went there 32 years ago )
    The only surprise is that you used a boat from the airstrip to the settlement, there used to be an helicopter there.
    The fjords were clear of ice so it wasn't a problem, but when I was there ( in July ) there was a lot of ice around.

    Turn the old military base into a museum for adventurous tourist, and an outpost where researchers and aircraft, seacraft seek shelter. This is an excellent documentary, for us to view, and do not have the opportunity to see these awesome places. AND, i notice a toyota pickup truck, and a pajero, as a ute enthusiast happy to see these reliable vehicles on remote corners of the world
