The icebreaker Polaris in Finland

If there's one thing everybody's heard about the Arctic, it's that sea ice is melting, and that's bad news. But what's less well-known is that some people see opportunity in sea ice loss. This time, take a seat in the captain's chair of a Finnish icebreaker, sing along with a very musical Alaskan mayor, and find out what it means when the world gets a whole new ocean.

Each season, Threshold explores one story from the natural world, and what it says about us. Season two is all about the Arctic: what it is, what’s changing there, and why that matters for everybody.
