Vikings, mining, Elvis: The story of Greenland’s melting ice cap

Our team travels to the remote edge of the ice sheet to discover the effect of the climate crisis on this stunning Arctic environment.

On this edition of Planet SOS, we explore how the melting ice cap is in danger of exposing nuclear waste from the Cold War and report on the growing controversy over the mining of rare earth minerals in this pristine landscape.

We also see how the old Inuit ways are disappearing and show how sheep farming thrives in the area the Vikings once settled.

Plus, Climate Elvis – the NASA scientist who has a unique way of telling the climate story.
