The Nature of Things Arctic Meltdown: The Arctic Passages (Part 2 of 3)

Episode 2 of the Arctic Meltdown series explores the Northwest Passage and how these dangerous waters are suddenly becoming accessible to businesses and shipping. Ports like Churchill, Manitoba and Murmansk, Russia expect to see business grow in years to come. Until recently, only a few ships braved travel through these ice-strewn waters. More and more ships cross these seas each year and with more traffic come higher risks — in particular for the Inuit who worry about the lack of ports and emergency support.
