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

Elite Britain? Elitism – politics and press!

A recent British article illustrates, allegedly, the depth of ‘elitism’, even privilege, amongst its higher members of society. Is this a matter of class, culture or constitution? We are back to the politics and it looks like summer holiday illusions of equality are over. The figures are revealing:“…that while 95% of Britons believe “in a fair society every person should have an equal opportunity to get ahead”,…See More

Life of a Woman is Violence in Pakistan

by sadiahaidariPakistan's relationship with its women is rooted in a patriarchal feudal system feeding the country since before it was born and full of violence after their birth. It's an archaic system that has produced the men who run the country, negotiate domestic and foreign policy and penned…See More
