Threshold S02 Episode Ten: Nickel For Your Thoughts

The nickel smelter in Nikel, Russia

The nickel smelter in Nikel, Russia

Half of the Arctic is in Russia, and half of Russia is in the Arctic. Oil, minerals, pollution -- it's a web of complicated environmental stories that need to be told. But in Russia, investigative journalists have become an endangered species. Spend some time around a nickel smelter and meet a veteran journalist fighting to do his job.

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.
