Oil: Race against time in the Arctic

I'm currently in Trondheim in northern Norway, where I've been following a conference about oil spill response, especially looking at Arctic waters. Climate change is affecting the Arctic so fast, the race is on to exploit the oil and gas previously unaccessible because of ice. Dealing with an oil accident in these remote areas and…See More

How to Tell the Climate Change Story

I'm writing this in Tromsö, which sees itself as Norway's "Gateway to the Arctic", two hours flight out of Oslo.The "Arctic Frontiers" conference is dedicated to the theme of "Arctic Tipping Points", which are interpreted in various different ways by the politicians, scientists and others speaking and participating.I've…See More

Are blogs a feasible extra medium for journalists or a waste of time?

I am in Tromsö, the "Gateway to the Arctic" attending a conference called "Arctic frontiers". I have been doing my usual journalistic work which involves listening, interviewing for radio, taking photos, writing for online and updating my Ice Blog . It is intensive, it's different from "the olden days" when you just did the radio work, but I enjoy the blogging because it lets me write in a different way and pass on my impressions…See More

"When the snow lay round about..." - thanks to global warming?

Snow on trees - beautiful, if you ask me, and appropriate weather for this time of year. Of course not everybody sees it that way. Most of the people supposedly always "Dreamin' of a white Christmas..." have been whinging non-stop since the snow started, admittedly a good bit ahead of the feast itself.And then, yes, off we went.…See More

Do climate journalists have to be optimists?

In following media comment on the Cancun outcome, I have been philosophising about the fact that some people say the overall view has been negative, whereas I had been surprised that a lot of (German) media and even ngos were looking on the positive side. (See http://blogs.dw-world.de/ice-blog last 2 entries).  There is a comment in the GUARDIAN ( www.guardian.co.uk  ) by Michael Jacobs, a climate and…See More

Criminalization of defamation: 'press freedom' or judicial integrity?

In a web search for defamation, one sees various articles mentioning the criminalization of defamation: in a variety of countries, such as eastern European or Russian countries, or Zimbabwe. Various human rights organizations or NGOs are reported to have signed protests against recent attempts to re-introduce criminal defamation into law in some of them. It is often argued as an attack on press freedom.The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) does not apparently support criminalization of…See More
