getting calls like this. within like a few 100 meters. there is a case to be made that there is a link between the dead animals and a ship disaster that occurred in mid may just a few miles off the coast to 3 longer to sunken cargo ship express. pearl carried terms of plastic, particles, corrosive, nitric acid and heavy oil. but the government says there is no proof of a connection between the dead sea animals and the ship color. we have to investigate whether the sunken ship has anything to do with the dead sea turtles and other fish cadavers. it could also be the result of a natural phenomenon or human activity. we will work together with experts to research this cap. every single disagrees. he believes that the ship catastrophe one of the greatest environmental disasters ever to hit sri lanka, is responsible for the death of many animals in the past. many dead animals were
6:14 am
washed on shore during the summer months, but never as many as this year. oh, now we out maybe 5 times more than that number. usually we will get about you know, 3040 maximum, but you watched up in our facility as along the sense i didn't call mark. so fabio receive more than $200.00 and kathy rethink, i believe this is still rising. he expects the catastrophe to have massive long term effects. in future you will see more any, mostly because there are no system got infected. i know. so if i know that you system got infected and in 97, with the time more container through add more chemicals into the water cap, bruising once answers and proposed solutions from politicians and for the government

on d, w ah. the antarctic continent of mystery and natural wonders covered with ice. for kilometers, deep temperatures can drop to minus 93 degrees celsius and 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. this could be the only place in the world where diverse countries have rallied together in the name
6:17 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 arenas where the polar research vessel espied us is picking up a group of spanish scientists to take them to antarctica. already nervous you'll get used to as it's no big deal.
6:18 am
i think it's just that it's amazing. but even got a window of bunk. it's done at the feet last night was wrong. we went to bed early, but i had a hard time falling asleep. i must have slept just for hours because i was so nervous about the trip in the market. i embarked on this journey to explore the myths of antarctica. ah, after one day at sea, we reached the end of the world. news at the southern most chance of argentina against waco is still a 1000 kilometers from the continent of antarctica. this is the drake passage.
6:19 am
eddies and wind turn freely here, whipping up violent seas in one of the earth, roughest waterways. but i wasn't very little for the 7 days. then the worst storm today. it isn't this year. it was our 2nd trip back from an arctic. you said the future. we were about 18 hours from south america when a severe weather system hit us from the starboard side. we say 7 meter high wave winds of up to 50, not even though they went into think when mental us every time the crew sales into the drake passage, they have their mobile phones, camera ready. when it comes amongst the, i could be told that 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 batten's down the hatches. it wasn't so
6:20 am
dramatic on our trip though. more 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 more crossing the passage . one of the office. me to the adventure may not be as wild as it once was the but it's still beautiful. me, i oh and article has been subject to territorial disputes. for centuries, the passage was 1st sailed by spaniards, francisco office in 1525. 50 years later,
6:21 am
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 intentions that erupt it into armed conflict between britain and argentina in 1952, as the cold war set in the last thing the world needed was a new geo political flash point. it was that realization that gave rise to the and arctic treaty. many people, including the 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
6:22 am
they found that there was a way and it's showing their article for of the treaty to set aside the claims. and 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 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, the s betty this reaches antarctica. everyone is excited.
6:23 am
we got up at 5 in the morning to catch our 1st glimpse of the coastline. what we hadn't expected was the fog no way of doing a half mile away and you can't see anything. oh, a few hours later the fog lift and at last we can see antarctic a b s, but he just 1st stop is king george island. the spanish team is delivering supplies to the lion station. i take us and our cooperation is running smoothly. and so this, i want to see that that i see what the antarctic treaty is very effective under its turns this location is devoted solely to science. so it's played
6:24 am
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 ago. unfortunately, the same is not true in other parts of the world that are usually economic interests. take precedence, cooperation. whenever you come up with this model be exported beyond antarctica. when does this mean that when that's a good question? is something many on the planet would not work on it 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, and 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
6:25 am
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 when their attention is between the united states and russia. that's it affect the competition, antarctica. i wouldn't say there's no effect, but by and large, the cooperation has continued. and that doesn't mean that those tensions are 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 wood from siberian pines, its national tree to construct a small orthodox church here in antarctica. critics
6:26 am
say it's a sly way to stake a territorial claim. the delay in station has its own church to. it also has a school for the children of soldiers station on the base around me. it's the closest thing you'll find to a settlement and antarctica. in the 1970 s argentine as military dictatorships and pregnant women to give birth and antarctica to underscore its territorial claim. to land dictator august open oshea copy the tactic, but it was widely viewed as provocative. and after the birth of 8 argentinians and 3 to land, both countries ended the policy. today, more subtle strategies are used to men territorial claim, as seen on chalet and television run and will be because we partially counties guys,
6:27 am
july and, and talk to july and talk to cuz it will be mostly sunny. i don't know what to lay and think about their countries claims to antarctica up and then call is to be honest, there isn't much public debate on the topic don't recorded when i was little people did talk about it a bit of luck. but later on, the political discourse subsided a day when people primarily associated with environmental protection, logical, where that's the trend i've observed, especially among young people who don't really set in this and they fill in the whole for the survival. i mean williams, my hardy, to see issues for us. it's simple. we sit and talk to us when many nations come together from the same data and there's no reason why we should be more entitled to anyone else so they can skip what you think we can save antarctica. if we fail to do the same and other places, you could. i think it's exactly because we've made with mistakes and other places
6:28 am
that we have a shorter saving antarctica. the, the spain has 2 stations in an article. it's national research center operates the one carlos, 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, the station summer, it doesn't need to. it's harsh conditions you'd expect to encounter in antarctica.
6:29 am
oh, you know, they didn't respond to any wind, but 2 days ago we had 800 kilometers an hour, which tries the wind chill factor down to minus 20 degrees celsius. needs had only more lopez and his team study to continents geology, which they say is of essential importance to the rest of the planet and article effects the whole world climate. doesn't it? public other 3 on the planet, cold factory, sophia, and a lot of the it's really cold in the arctic to but not to the same again. and there's a lot more ice in an article in the architect. but the water reaches as far as the variance and insulin and continues to circulate around
6:30 am
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 nice. this is anyone at this stage, the mass balance advantage and found against the big question as the senior director opposite. if you know, is it getting colder in antarctica? see system for the another? yes, it is getting cold earlier, but our measurements are limited to the last 15 years. so we are trying to get studies need to examine the period if at least 30. if we look closer we can see that there was a gradual temperature and a temperature drop in the.
