Arctic scramble: climate change prompts ressource race

As the Arctic ice melts, the battle for natural resources is heating up. Up to a quarter of the world’s oil and gas deposits are thought to lie beneath the chilly seas, and big global players such as China are trying to get in on the act. In our debate, the Norwegian ambassador to Belgium defends the drilling interests of a traditional Arctic power, while a Swedish Green MEP questions Oslo’s stance on the environment.

With our guests:

  • Isabella Lovin, Swedish MEP, Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance;
  • Niels Engelschion, Norwegian ambassador to Belgium.

Presented by Armen Georgian

Watch part two.
