Ep. 8 - Melting Land

The Polar Sea

Described Video:
Richard Tegner has hitched a new and luxurious ride and is sailing west along a melting coast. Climate change is turning the Arctic green and the consequences are as complex as they are frightening. Warmth is moving so far north and so deep into the ground that vast tracts of the landscape are literally melting into the sea. Stranger still, a chain reaction has been unleashed that is extinguishing the Arctic's most ancient beasts, even as it turns the Inuit's hardy sled dogs into docile pets.
