A video report on Global Warming. Charles Annenberg Weingarten (founder of www.explore.org)

The host and director noted above presents the land, the legal and economic issues underlying the Arctic situation. Most importantly he hears the voice of the Inuit, indigenous peoples of the region. Elisapee Sheutiapik (the Mayor of Iqaluit, Nunavut) amongst others plays a major role in assisting him in this process.
An ecosystem video report of the Arctic that defines key scientific vocabulary and phrases whilst on a round trip on Akademik Loffe (a scientific, expedition boat). The focus of the report is on the Arctic Ecosystem; Past, Present and Future; and the local inhabitants. The story is broad, accurate and far reaching in it's implications.
