While many parts of the world are struggling from catastrophic effects of climate change, Russia is looking to capitalize on it, with the Kremlin driving a narrative that touts the economic benefits. Like more and faster access to petroleum and mineral reserves that were previously unreachable. The Northern Sea Passage, a legendary shipping lane along Russia’s Arctic coastline, has been largely inaccessible for part of the year because of dense sea ice. But now, that ice is melting, opening up a new trade route for Russia's cargo ships. Russian oil companies are already betting big on the new reserves they hope to find in the Russian Arctic, and other industries — like mining — are ramping up production since they now have faster shipping routes to many ports. “The problem of climate change is actually the problem of adaptation to climate change. This is not a tragedy,” said Nobel Prize-winning climatologist Oleg Anisimov. “Certainly some places will become unlivable, but other areas are places that will become more livable.” But the Russian people seem unaware, or unconcerned, about the environmental impacts of these climate change-related activities, like pollution from the booming factories, and wildfires in the North that destroyed million of acres of forest in a major tourism area. VICE’s Gianna Toboni visited Russia's Arctic to see just how big the country is betting on climate change.

"People Can Stand Up" What do you think of mining in the Canadian Arctic?? The Inuit organizations of Nunavut have recently opened the way to uranium mining. Some Nunavut residents want to voice their concerns and created a grassroots organization to ask for a public inquiry; should Nunavut open the way to nuclear energy or not? "Show Me On The Map: Discussions on Mining on Aboriginal Lands" is an online blog discussing the social, economic, and environmental issues surrounding mining in the Canadian Arctic.

Everyone is aware of off-shore oil rigs; these platforms drill down underwater for valuable resources just off the coast of many nations. But, deep in the ocean beyond national aquatic boundaries lies an abundance of natural resources such as gold, copper, manganese and zinc. State-sponsored companies are surveying and staking claim to these resources, but so far, no one has been granted approval to begin extracting them. The International Seabed Authority (ISA) — the governing body that oversees all activities in international waters (known as the Area) — is currently developing regulations for the extraction of marine minerals. Rules and procedures that govern liability for damage arising from mining activities will be crucial aspect of this regulatory framework. Who is responsible when an environmental disaster occurs as a result of mining activities? To assist in clarifying these legal issues of responsibility and liability, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Secretariat of the International Seabed Authority established the Liability Issues for Deep Seabed Mining project. Under the direction of Neil Craik (CIGI), Hannah Lily (Commonwealth Secretariat) and Alfonso Ascencio-Herrera (ISA Secretariat), this project seeks to provide a foundational understanding of key questions surrounding the further development of liability rules.

Canada's Tar Sands is the third-largest proven crude oil reserve in the world behind Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. In 2011 it was believed the reserve amounted to 170.2 billion barrels of oil, or about 11% of total global oil reserves. But the development of Canada's Oil Sands is concerning environmentalists for several reasons, not least the fact that producing "tar oil", or "sand oil" as it's also known, releases three times the volume of greenhouse gas emissions as conventional oil.

The Marikana massacre most certainly turned the spotlight on the women in mining communities by bringing into sharp focus the challenges facing the widows of the slain mineworkers. Fazila Farouk of SACSIS talks to Samantha Hargreaves of Womin about the broader impact of mining on women in mining communities and learns about land grabs, water grabs and the health impacts of environmental degradation and water pollution, which create an additional burden for the women behind the mineworkers. Women in mining communities, both within sender communities and recipient communities, are often also engaged in unpaid labour that subsidises the profits of big mining companies. The negative impacts of mining well outweigh any social responsibility investments made by mining corporations, contends Hargreaves.

Show creator Simon Donald takes us through the Arctic landscape and the hidden forces destroying it in this behind-the-scenes video from 'Fortitude.' In the close-knit community of Fortitude, a murder touches everyone, and the unsettling horror of the crime threatens the future of the town itself. The police chief, Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer), must investigate alongside Eugene Morton (Stanley Tucci), a detective who has flown into Fortitude so fast that questions are being asked about how much he knew and when. As the two cops try to make sense of the killing, each finds reasons to mistrust and suspect the other. The murder is especially a catastrophe for the town’s governor, Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl), who’s planning to turn the declining mining town into a site for high-end tourism. For wildlife photographer Henry Tyson (Michael Gambon), who only has weeks left to live, the murder is the catalyst to unearthing Fortitude’s darkest secret. In Fortitude, it’s not just the cold that kills. All-new episodes of Fortitude premiere Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Pivot TV. Visit the Fortitude website now to explore the town, watch videos, and meet the residents. In addition, Pivot TV and EcoHealth Alliance have teamed up to create Investigate “Fortitude,” a nine-part video series, hosted by Jacob Soboroff, that explores the real-life science behind the show.

Climate change is destabilizing the Arctic environment and rendering its communities vulnerable. Yet new infrastructure projects are springing up on top of the shifting landscape, from ports along Russia’s northern coast to highways in Canada. This presentation will examine how certain northern communities have managed to benefit from and occasionally spearhead major new transportation infrastructure projects while others remain sidelined as their resources are extracted and exported, often for consumption in the world’s urban core. Addressing this topic requires first determining patterns of economic development in the Arctic at a regional scale, which are shown for the past two decades using night light satellite imagery. Fieldwork conducted in Canada and Russia helps explain how certain infrastructure projects are negotiated and brought into being at a local scale while drawing attention to both the benefits and risks of industrial development. Taken together, this presentation aims to identify the mechanisms which are selectively connecting certain northern communities to regional and global transportation networks.

ANTANANARIVO, Madagascar, 27 July 2009 As world attention shifts towards environmental issues, the effects of climate change are being felt on the island nation of Madagascar. The dusty south of the country has always been dry, but biannual rains meant farmers could plant and harvest their crops usually sweet potatoes and maize twice a year. It was enough to see them and their families through the lean seasons. But for the last two years those rains have failed, once mighty rivers have dried to a trickle and crops have died. People, especially children, have begun to starve. UNICEF, in partnership with the World Food Programme and the Malagasy Ministry of Health, is attempting to alleviate the crisis. Through an early warning system and with the help of community volunteers who go door to door an estimated 80 per cent of malnourished children in the drought-affected regions have been reached.

Environmental impact The environmental impacts of the TANBREEZ Project on the environment have been assessed. The Greenlandic guidelines require identification of potential pollution and disturbance impacts. A number of specific studies have been carried out to assist the EIA process. These include studies of the tailings material and waste rock to determine if metals would leach out if the materials are deposited in water. A study has tested if the tailings could leach toxic substances. Staffs from Nuuk Museum have surveyed the project area for cultural heritage sites and biologists have studied the flora and fauna. The conclusion is that if the mitigating measures proposed in the EIA report are implemented and the mining activities are carried out in accordance to good environmental practice then the significance of the impacts on the environment will be low. No significant contamination by toxic materials or other pollutants is expected to take place. Dust dispersal will be small and no local and/or key animals (such as White-tailed eagle or Arctic char) or plants will decline or be displaced because of the mine project. Cultural and natural values Greenlandic cultural and natural values are closely connected to social values as the traditional and cultural activities involves many social events and a rich social life. The conclusion of the Local use report carried out by Orbicon in 2010 is that overall mining activities will have little negative impact on local use of natural resources. The findings and conclusions of the Local Use study were confirmed during the interviews and focus groups research activities performed by the SIA team. The low negative impacts will be perceived from construction phase and through the life of the mine For more information visit http://tanbreez.com/

Physically removing the rock ore generally involves either open-pit mining or underground mining. Milling is the process that removes uranium from the ore, which is mostly obtained in open-pit and underground mines. Once at the mill, the ore is crushed and ground up, and treated with chemical solutions to dissolve the uranium, which is then recovered from the solution. Tailings are the wastes from the millings processes and are stored in mill tailings impoundments, a specially designed waste disposal facility. Since 1979, when uranium mine workers began being diagnosed with lung diseases, such as cancer, regulators have gradually tightened controls and mandated improved uranium mining practices. Recently, officials also have become concerned with the broader impacts of uranium mining on public health and the environment. Workers are directly exposed to the radiation hazards of uranium mines. Uranium mining also releases radon from the ground into the atmosphere. Mines and mining waste can release radionuclides, including radon, and other pollutants to streams, springs, and other bodies of water. Federal and state agencies have established pollutant discharge limits and drinking water standards, and continue to monitor these sites for public safety. Uranium mine waste from operations that closed before the mid-1970s are of particular concern. In many cases, these mines remain unclaimed and the waste is still piled near the mine. Weathering can lead to radioactive dust that is blown by the wind and the seepage of contaminants into the surface and groundwater. There are also cases of unclaimed uranium mine waste being used for house construction, which creates significant radon and radiation hazard for inhabitants. For more information on the hazards of uranium, go to USEPA website http://www.epa.gov/radtown/basic.html . This is clipped from the late 1970's BBC Production, Energy From The Crust, showing uranium mining activities and equipment and including footage from the following uranium mines: Schwartzwalder Mine, Near Boulder, Colorado King Solomon Mine near Uravan, Colorado and the Key Lake Mine in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Svalbard (Свальбард) is an archipelago in the Arctic, constituting the northernmost part of Norway. Located north of mainland Europe, it is about midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. The group of islands range from 74° to 81° north latitude (and thus inside the Arctic Circle), and from 10° to 35° east longitude. Spitsbergen is the largest island, followed by Nordaustlandet and Edgeøya. The administrative center is Longyearbyen, and other settlements, in addition to research outposts, are the Russian mining community of Barentsburg, the research community of Ny-Ålesund and the mining outpost of Sveagruva. The archipelago is administrated by the Governor of Svalbard. The islands were first taken into use as a whaling base in the 17th and 18th centuries, after which they were abandoned. Coal mining started at the beginning of the 20th century, and several permanent communities were established. The Spitsbergen Treaty of 1920 recognizes Norwegian sovereignty, and the 1925 Svalbard Act made Svalbard a full part of the Kingdom of Norway. They also established Svalbard as a free economic zone and a demilitarized zone. The Norwegian Store Norske and the Russian Arktikugol remain the only mining companies. Research and tourism have became important supplementary industries, featuring among others the University Centre in Svalbard and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. No roads connect the settlements; instead snowmobiles, aircraft and boats serve inter-community transport. Svalbard Airport, Longyear serves as the main gateway. The archipelago features an Arctic climate, although with significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. The flora takes advantage of the long period of midnight sun to compensate for the polar night. Svalbard is a breeding ground for many seabirds, and also features polar bears, reindeer and marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, nature. Sixty percent of the archipelago is glacier, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords.

Greenland is one of the most mineral rich regions in the world and within the last decade Greenland has become a new mining frontier. This is due to the fact that the Greenland Ice Cap is rapidly melting around the edges, exposing new mineral rich mountains. Additionally this effects the melting of the Arctic sea-ice, which means that cargo transportation is becoming much more accessible throughout the year. Located at the tip of southern Greenland, The Kvanefjeld Mountains are believed to be the world's second largest source of rare earth metals and minerals. Currently, several international companies are exploring the mining opportunities for these rare earth minerals, which are a critical resource for most of the world's new green-technology and electronic products. The film explores how Greenland's government is requiring high standards of extraction, demanding environmentally sustainable extraction methods as a minimum.

What are the most important events in the collective environmental memory of humanity? This is the question addressed in this video highlighting 22 events that professional environmental historians regard as turning points in the relationship between humans and the environment. Topics include deforestation, mining and oil extraction, nuclear disaster, bugs, Earth Day, a dust veil event and the invention of agriculture. The events discussed in the video move beyond the confines of human history. The earliest event is the asteroid impact that ended the age of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. At the other end of the timeline the video moves into the future and speculates about a future mega-earthquake in the Tokyo Bay area. In spatial terms, events were scattered over all five continents as well as the entire globe This video provides an introduction to some of the most prominent events in the interaction between humans and the planetary environment that have shaped history. The video is based on an article compiled and introduced by Frank Uekötter: "What Should We Remember? A Global Poll Among Environmental Historians", Global Environment, 11 (2013), pp. 184-214.

This report gains access to a side of Antarctica that is rarely seen as we find out what life is really like on this wild frontier. In 1959, twelve countries signed the Antarctic Treaty, which aimed to preserve the continent for peaceful scientific research. Located at the very bottom of the world, King George Island is home to the closest thing Antarctica has to an international town, complete with a school, a post office and bizarrely, a Russian Orthodox church. In this strange southern wilderness, an eclectic group of residents from Russia, Chile, Germany and South Korea live alongside one another in a quest to grapple with the big questions facing climate change and marine biology. From studying how rising temperatures affect penguin populations, to the level of toxins in seal blubber, the scientists' work is imperative in helping to keep this unique environment alive. Over the past 60 years, glaciers have receded by more than a kilometre, and the area has become one of the fastest warming areas of the world. "We have essentially knocked the global climate system out of kilter and I would say rightly we should be very scared about what's going to happen to humans", explains Professor Peter Convey.

Survivor uses secret haunted coal mine to stay alive in this The Long Dark Interloper Faithful Cartographer update gameplay ep 8! Subscribe if you like! + http://bit.ly/1PG8z9G A little bad weather never stopped us, so it's time to head into Desolation Point, our last stop to get some tools. In truth, Desolation Point is a pretty terrible zone, there's really only a few structures to take shelter in, and most of them are very cold naturally. Luckily we have some decent clothing at the moment, so we should survive. The biggest issue will be the sheer amount of time it's going to take us to make the tools...they take HOURS. That could spur on another bout of cabin fever. On the way over we get to see the haunted coal mines, a lovely place for sure.

Russian/Nat As Russia suffers a crippling financial crisis, the environment is coming under increasing pressure. From Moscow to Siberia to the Far East, "green" concerns are falling by the wayside as struggling industries and individuals focus all of their energies on just getting by. APTN takes a look at two industrial regions in Russia suffering the environmental consequences of the economic meltdown. This mining outpost is the world's largest city north of the Arctic Circle - freezing winds send snow squalls and factory smoke drifting across the endless polar tundra. More than 200-thousand Russians live in this forsaken land - the majority working in Norilsk's smelters and mines. The pollution pouring from Norilsk's unfiltered 20-plus smokestacks has poisoned the trees dead for a radius extending 150 kilometres from the town and its factories. Private environmental groups estimate that the average Norilskian takes in some 40 times more pollution than a resident of Moscow - a European capital itself more polluted then any of its neighbours. Norilsk was originally built by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin as a prison camp. Today, it remains cut off from the rest of Russia - unreachable by road and impossible to escape for the majority of impoverished workers. When Norilsk was privatised in 1994, environmentalists hoped that its new private owners would pay more attention to the environment. But statistics from across Russia have shown just the opposite. With little working environmental regulations, most Russians are forced to accept terrible and dangerous working conditions and polluted air and water supplies. Here, in the final stages of nickel production, workers spend eight hours a day leaning over massive steaming vats of poisonous acid. Factory directors admit there are no respiratory protectors and no money to provide them in the future. With Russia's economy in a tailspin, workers at Norilsk are forced to think of their health last. Struggling just to get by, there is very little environmental awareness in places like Norilsk. Workers know they have little power and almost no choice. SOUNDBITE: (in Russian) "You know as far as the danger goes, we have a saying that goes like this - every farmer farms by his own choice - if you want work at all then you take what you can get. Every worker that comes here, they know what they are facing but they have no choice. If they want to work in Norilsk then they have to work in these factories." SUPER CAPTION: Sergey Zaitsev - has worked in acid baths for 10 years Very little grows in Norilsk's nearly year-round winter. And the earth is so polluted with heavy metals that residents are not allowed to gather even berries or hunt for mushrooms in the short summer months. Most residents in Norilsk are aware of their plight but are resigned to the futility of changing their environment. Although Russia has excellent environmental laws on the books, the legal system is practically non-functioning - so both private and governmental companies know that anything goes in terms of polluting. SOUNDBITE (in English) "It's getting worse because the enterprises have now come to private hands and it's very clear the control on those enterprises is extremely weak. And the number of people working in the Environment Ministry is less than six-thousand for the whole country and that means not only control but scientific research, levels and etcetera, etcetera." SUPER CAPTION: Ivan Blokin, Moscow Greenpeace In Russia's coal producing region of Kemerovo, the situation is similar. Decades of coal production without any environmental controls have left the region decimated.
