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.
