Torstein Viddal

FTE21 ~ Arctic Sea Ice Volume

The Arctic Sea Ice Volume is 2017 at it’s ever recorded low. Maybe this sounds somehow special, but what‘s going on in the Arctic now has huge consequences for the climate of the planet. In this episode I have an interview with Torstein Viddal from Norway, now living on Greenland. He is a novelist, has a master in information science and is an eco activist since decades. Torstein is following data of ice extent and volume in the Arctic very closely. Now in 2017 he has observed the lowest ice volume of millions of years. Prof. Peter Wadhams gives us an introduction, why the Arctic sea ice is so important.
