a free event, but what role do human activities on earth play in climate change? so the human activities with a release of greenhouse gas, the feel to me thing and so on, are leading to increase of the greenhouse gas. yes sir. and they also prevent the heat from, from the earth is leaving the atmosphere so it's collecting the heat and it leads to work to warm him. this warming was modeled by scientists in the us, canada, and europe for a world whether attribution report, researchers say, hitting nearly 50 degrees in western north america is virtually impossible without climate change caused by people. they estimate this global warming made the heat wave a $150.00 times. more likely. this is not a british columbia problem. it's not a candidate problem. it is a global challenge,
3:15 am
and we all need to have citizens of the world coming together as we have quite frankly, to address a global pandemic. there is a lot of uncertainty in the data covering the frequency of heat waves as the phenomenon was so extreme. but something the scientific community does agree on is a climate change, played a big role. the city w news up next is the documentary and talk to a message from another talent. i'll cease to the who's going was right in front of it. then suddenly, we agreed to postpone the or olympic games that tokyo or 2020 throne. of course, during the qualifying ground for sports heroes,

count down during lockdown starts july. 19th on d, w. ah. the antarctic continent, mystery and natural wonders covered with ice 4 kilometers, deep temperatures can drop to minus 93 degrees celsius. 75 percent of our planets. fresh water is locked up in its ice sheet, and yet it's classified as the largest desert on earth. could be the only place in the world where diverse countries have rallied together in the name
3:17 am
of peace and science. to protect the environment. the part about the ice and the temperatures. sure. but the part about peace in the environment. it's hard to believe the not just because i'm concerned about nature, but also because i lived in syria in 2009. so i don't have much faith left in peace or in the international community, but i'd love to be proven wrong. we've come to pointer arena us where the polar research vessel espied edith is picking up a group of spanish scientists to take them to antarctica. already nervous you'll get used to it. it's no it's amazing. i've even got
3:18 am
a window of bunk. it's done. it's a seal. the 5th last night was wrong. we went a bit earlier, but i had a hard time falling asleep. but i slept just for hours because i was so nervous about the trip in the market. me, i embarked on this journey to explore the myths of antarctica. this waco is still a 1000 kilometers from the continent of antarctica. this is the drake passage eddies and wind turn freely here, whipping up violent seas in one of the earth, roughest waterways. and what else was in the system and then the worst storm to date it this year was our 2nd trip back from an arctic. you said the fuel, we were about 18 hours from south america when a severe weather system hit us from the starboard side. we say 7 meter highway
3:19 am
winds of up to 50, not even the one in the sink. when that was, every time the crew sales into the drake passage, they have their mobile phones, camera ready, when it comes amongst a wave, could be told, and these are the outlines of cape horn, a notorious maritime graveyard that harbors the sunken wrecks of hundreds of ships even today, the drake passage commands respect, everyone batton's down the hatches. it wasn't so dramatic on our trip though. sort of them look at which luckily technology has improved a lot. today before setting sail, we can check the weather forecast to find the best window for crossing the passage . one of the office to the adventure may not be as wild as it once was the but it's still beautiful.
3:20 am
me i oh. ready ready and article has been subject to territorial disputes. for centuries, the passage was 1st sailed by spaniards, francisco the orsis in 1525. 50 years later, it was discovered by the english explore sir francis drake and bears his name to this day. or in the early 20th century, 7 countries laid territorial claims to parts of antarctica. the overlapping claims of the united kingdom, argentina, and julie cause tensions that erupt it into armed conflict between britain and
3:21 am
argentina in 1952. as the cold war set in the last thing the world needed was a new geo political flash point. it was bad realization that gave rise to the and arctic treaty. many people, including scientists, were looking for ways to cooperate and there was the international physical year in 1957, 58. and that worked out so well that there was this idea that there could be cooperation in antarctica. the they found that there was a way, and it's showing their article for of the treaty to set aside the claims, to say that there would be a demilitarization. but it's also, as you may know, one of the 1st arms control treaties. so it was focused on keeping the peace in
3:22 am
that respect as well. but none of that was the result of goodwill alone. the extreme climate made it difficult to exploit the region economically. and the u. s . and soviet union stake their territorial claims quite late in the game. the 4 days after leaving printer us the s. betty this reaches antarctica. everyone is excited. we got up at 5 in the morning to catch our 1st glimpse of the coastline. what we hadn't expected was the fog way of doing a half miles away and you can't see anything. oh, a few hours later, the fog lift,
3:23 am
and at last we can see antarctica shoes . the 1st stop is king, george island. the spanish team is delivering supplies to the oregon lion station, artega, antarctic cooperation is running smoothly. so this, i want to see that the antarctic treaty is very effective under its terms, this location is devoted solely to science. so late a key role in getting all countries to set aside, there are other interesting at least publicly, and it's been that way for a very long time and for, for them. yes, everyone can, fortunately, the same is not true in other parts of the world that are usually economic interests. take precedence over scientific cooperation, focus and other than you come up with most of this model be exported beyond antarctica. when does this mean that when that's a good question,
3:24 am
it's something many on the planet would not work, which doesn't have money. because king george island offers the easiest access to antarctica. it has the greatest concentration of stations on the entire continent. there are facilities here belonging to uruguay, russia, chile, argentina, brazil, china, poland, peru, ecuador, the czech republic, south korea, and bulgaria. the antarctic treaty regulates how many new stations can open so that it doesn't get too crowded. earlier. it's always better to kind of exhibit peacefully with your neighbors and get along. the 1st thing we did was to establish good relations with all our neighbors. cooperation is vital in antarctica. and they were when their attention is between the united states and russia. that's it affect the competition and i wouldn't say there's no effect, but by and large, the cooperation has continued. and that doesn't mean that those tensions
3:25 am
aren't in some respects in the background somewhere. but at least in terms of the antarctic programs in the arctic programs and the work of the scientists together by enlarged that, that continues. in 2004 russia imported would from siberian pines, its national tree to construct a small orthodox church. here in antarctica, critic say it just fly way to take a territorial claim that your land station has its own church to. it also has a school for the children of soldiers stationed on the base around it's the closest thing you'll find to
3:26 am
a settlement an antarctica. in the 1970 s argentina's military dictatorships and pregnant women to give birth and antarctica to underscore its territorial claims. july and dictator. august open oshea copy the tactic, but it was widely viewed as provocative. and after the birth of 8 argentinians and 3 children and both countries ended the policy today. more subtle strategies are used at the men territorial claim as seen on july and television. ryan will be over, can we possibly can these guys whereas july and i talked to july and talked to be mostly sunny. what did you think about their country claims to antarctica? nothing since then. is to be honest, there isn't much public debate on the topic. don't record when i was little people did talk about it a bit. but later on the political discourse subsided when people primarily
3:27 am
associated with environmental protection, like where that's the trend i've observed, especially among young people, have to do really something dense. and if they sent in the whole, and then what you have said about, i mean williams, my, it's hardly the issue for us. it's simple. we sat and talked to us. when many nations come together think they don't know. there's no reason why we should be more entitled to anyone else so they can get what you think we can save antarctica . if we fail to do the same and other places you can. i think it's exactly because we've made with mistakes and other places that we have a shorter saving antarctica. the, the
3:28 am
spain has 2 stations and dr. cars, it's national research center operates the one car, was the 1st station on livingston island. it was built in the late 1980 s, and remodeled in 2008 into a modern facility. that looks a bit like a space station. the station if it doesn't need to with the harsh conditions you'd expect to encounter in antarctica, didn't any wind, but 2 days ago we had 18 kilometers an hour which tries the wind chill factor down to minus 20 degrees celsius.
3:29 am
had only lopez and his team study to continents geology, which they say is of essential importance to the rest of the planet. and arthur affects the whole world. climate doesn't it public either free on the planets. cold factories will be on a lot of it's really cold in the arctic to, but not to the same again. and a lot of there's a lot more ice in that article than the architect that the water reaches as far as the syrian and insulin and continues to circulate around the northern hemisphere. these waters sometimes blow all the way up to the arctic getting where they cool back down again. motor driving the circulation arctic one of the most important projects at the one carlos the 1st station. is it study of the heard and johnson glaciers and this would be really valuable in the states, the mass balance then she found against us. the big question is if it's senior
3:30 am
director opposite is the though, is it getting colder and an article on the c stand for the on the yes, it is getting cold, but our measurements are limited to the last 15 years. so we are trying to fix studies need to examine a period of at least 30. if we look closer, we can see that there was a gradual temperature in 15 years and the temperature dropped in the subsequent 15 years. but globally, the trend is towards rolling. i mean the one with the .
