Arctic: panic on the pack ice!


In the wake of COP15, held in Montreal last December, Arte is broadcasting The Arctic, a region in upheaval, a superb and edifying documentary.

Ever thinner ice, ever scarcer food, ever dense pollution (even in the most remote regions), ever more threatened life... According to the specialists present at COP15 in Montreal, we are only at the beginning of the collapse , in terms of polar biodiversity.

The German documentary

The Arctic, a region upset

does not seek to reassure the viewer about the future of his own species through that of a joyful fauna.

Committed to following in the footsteps of a young 2-year-old polar bear named Frost, on the contrary, he makes the overwhelming observation of the degradation of a nature that has fallen victim to our successive attacks.

The Arctic is warming four times faster than the rest of the planet.

70 million tons of ice melt there every day.

It's twice too much to ensure the preservation of the fjord...

And without twice too much for the rest of the planet!

But during this time.

While climatologists and scientists around the world are trying by all means to warn about the state of the planet and all the disasters to which we are exposing ourselves, and even more so our children.
