The Arctic

Our planet on thin ice

The far north is feeling the heat from climate change more than anywhere else on Earth, with rising temperatures and melting ice putting increasing pressure on marine life, ocean currents, and human lives and livelihoods. Join us as we talk with scientists studying Earth’s northernmost regions and learn how changes in the Arctic affect the rest of our planet.
