Who Owns The Arctic Ocean?
 
06:21
#ArcticOcean #Geography #Education This video discusses who owns the ever-warming Arctic Ocean, which surrounds the North Pole of Earth. Find out how as the Arctic melts, it opens up new possibilities for fishing, drilling and shipping. But who owns the Arctic? And who gets access to these resources? Discover how Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ) dictate the delegation of natural resources in the Arctic Ocean, and how the United Nations Convention on the Law of Sea (UNCLOS) can create more disputes than answers when countries have overlapping territorial claims in the Arctic Circle. Continental shelf claims in the Arctic Ocean also bring a new layer of complexity to territorial disputes.

But when an Antarctic ice shelf the size of Manhattan collapsed in less than a month in 2002, it shocked scientists and raised the alarming possibility that Antarctica may be headed for a meltdown. Even a 10 percent loss of Antarctica's ice would cause catastrophic flooding of coastal cities unlike any seen before in human history. What are the chances of a widespread melt? "Secrets Beneath the Ice" explores whether Antarctica's climate past can offer clues to what may happen. NOVA follows a state-of-the-art expedition that is drilling three-quarters of a mile into the Antarctic seafloor. The drill is recovering rock cores that reveal intimate details of climate and fauna from a time in the distant past when the Earth was just a few degrees warmer than it is today. As researchers grapple with the harshest conditions on the planet, they discover astonishing new clues about Antarctica's past—clues that carry ominous implications for coastal cities around the globe. documentary 2018, documentary music, documentary space, documentary song, documentary war, documentary crime, documentary channel, documentary ww2, documentary science, documentary hd, documentary, documentary now, documentary about, documentary ancient, documentary aliens, documentary animal, documentary america, documentary art, documentary about god, documentary amazon, documentary about love, documentary ai, a documentary film, a documentary about depression, a documentary about life, a documentary story of the buddha's life, a documentary of prostitution area in bangladesh, a documentary about space, a documentary about the important things, a documentary about canada, a documentary on school dress code, a documentary about animals, documentary bbc, documentary best, documentary bible, documentary bigfoot, documentary brain, documentary business, documentary bangla, documentary babies, documentary brazil, documentary birds, max b documentary, proxima b documentary, r&b documentary, group b documentary, doe b documentary, lil b documentary, mel b documentary, plan b documentary, bun b documentary, b.o.b documentary, documentary china, documentary cars, documentary columbine, documentary cia, documentary children, documentary cold war, documentary culture, documentary cats, documentary comedy, pimp c documentary, andy c documentary, b b c documentary, vitamin c documentary, hep c documentary, d.o.c documentary, hepatitis c documentary, lady c documentary, paul c documentary, washington d.c documentary, documentary death, documentary demons, documentary disaster, documentary dubai, documentary disease, documentary dreams, documentary discovery, documentary dw, documentary documentary, documentary dmt, tenacious d documentary, heavy d documentary, vitamin d documentary, keefe d documentary, initial d documentary, winky d documentary, chuck d documentary, stevie hyper d documentary, lavish d documentary, 1st sfod-d documentary, documentary earth, documentary egypt, documentary economy, documentary eminem, documentary evil, documentary editing, documentary ethiopia, documentary el chapo, documentary english, documentary elon musk, e documentary series boulevard of broken dreams, e documentary selena gomez, eazy e documentary, a&e documentary full episodes, eazy e documentary 2015, jonbenet a&e documentary, poi e documentary, a&e documentary serial killers, maersk triple e documentary, formula e documentary, documentary food, documentary for kids, documentary films, documentary future, documentary fbi, documentary fish, documentary funny, documentary fast, documentary fat, documentary fashion, b.m.f documentary, terminal f documentary, christiane f documentary, f 35 documentary, f 22 raptor documentary, f-14 tomcat documentary, f-16 documentary, f 15 documentary, f scott fitzgerald documentary, f 18 documentary, documentary gangs, documentary ghost, documentary god, documentary gay, documentary guns, documentary gangland, documentary government, documentary greece, documentary giants, documentary gucci, king lil g documentary, warren g documentary, triple g documentary, b.g documentary, kap g documentary, becky g documentary, kenny g documentary, p&g documentary, tom g documentary, ali g documentary, documentary hindi,

Right Whale Disentanglement 06JAN17
 
04:19
This video documents the intense efforts to disentangle an endangered North Atlantic right whale from commercial fishing gear off Cumberland Island. The whale was dragging more than 450 feet of rope and a 135-pound trap/pot used in certain cold-water fisheries. The rescue involved highly trained and authorized staff from Georgia DNR, NOAA, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Sea to Shore Alliance. Entanglement in commercial fishing gear is one of the leading threats to this imperiled species. More than 80 percent of North Atlantic right whales have scars from previous entanglements.

Scientist's Successfully Disentangle North Atlantic Right Whale
 
00:11
Credit: With permission from Georgia Department of Natural Resource Watch a scientist from NOAA's response agency partner (Georgia Department of Natural Resources) use a long pole with attached knife and buoy to help cut the remaining ropes from a young sedated North Atlantic right whale on January 15 off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Fla. The young female whale, born during the 2008-2009 calving season and estimated to be approximately 30 feet long, was originally observed entangled on Christmas Day by an aerial survey team. On December 30, a disentanglement team of trained responders from Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were able to remove 150 feet of rope from the whale, but additional rope remained. NOAA and its partners continued to track the animal via satellite tag to determine if the animal would shed the remaining gear on its own. Calm weather conditions were necessary before attempting further intervention on January 15. During this response, scientists used for the first time a special digital monitoring tag which recorded the whale's behavior before, during, and after sedation. Sedating large whales at sea is in its infancy and data collected from the digital archival tag will be used to inform future sedation attempts that may be necessary. After disentangling the whale, scientists administered a dose of antibiotics to treat entanglement wounds and drug to reverse the sedation. The whale will be tracked up to 30-days via a temporary satellite tag.

Animals in the Antarctic Ice
 
07:17
Animals in the Antarctic Ice The wildlife of Antarctica are extremophiles, having to adapt to the dryness, low temperatures, and high exposure common in Antartica. The extreme weather of the interior contrasts to the relatively mild conditions on the Antarctic Peninsula and the subantarctic islands, which have warmer temperatures and more liquid water. Much of the ocean around the mainland is covered by sea ice. The oceans themselves are a more stable environment for life, both in the water column and on the seabed. The Antarctic ice sheet is one of the two polar ice caps of the Earth. It covers about 98% of the Antarctic continent and is the largest single mass of ice on Earth. It covers an area of almost 14 million square km and contains 26.5 million cubic km of ice.[2] That is, approximately 61 percent of all fresh water on the Earth is held in the Antarctic ice sheet, an amount equivalent to 70 m of water in the world's oceans. In East Antarctica, the ice sheet rests on a major land mass, but in West Antarctica the bed can extend to more than 2,500 m below sea level. The land in this area would be seabed if the ice sheet were not there.

Rehoboth Beach Delaware summer sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean USA
 
01:20
Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, USA Rehoboth Beach is a city along the Atlantic Ocean in eastern Sussex County, Delaware. The town of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware often bills itself as The Nation's Summer Capital due to the fact that it is a frequent summer vacation destination for Washington, D.C., residents (121.78 miles / 2 hrs 46 mins from The White House) Vacationers are drawn for many reasons, including the town's charm, tax free shopping and famous for its beaches, wooden boardwalk, eclectic shops, amusements, and sporting activities Rehoboth Beach is one of the principal cities of Delaware's rapidly growing Cape Region. In 2011, the NRDC Natural Resources Defense Council awarded Rehoboth Beach with a 5-Star rating in water quality. Out of the 30 states with coastline, the Delaware Beaches ranked number one in water quality in 2011. Rehoboth Beach is also known as one of the mid-Atlantic coast's popular LGBT Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender - gay-friendly getaways because of the large number of gay-owned and operated businesses and because of the gay-frequented stretch of beach near Queen Street, known as Poodle Beach. Dogfish Head Brewery's original brewpub is located on the town's main strip Rehoboth Avenue. Rehoboth (Hebrew: רְחוֹבוֹת‎) means "broad spaces." It appears three times in the Old Testament as a place name: a well dug by Isaac (at modern Wadi er-Ruheibeh) (Gen. 26:22), a city on the Euphrates River (Gen. 36:37; 1 Chr. 1:48), and one of the cities of Asshur (Gen. 10:11). Hence the name may have had a special appeal for the religious founders of the city, although the adjacent bay had already borne the name Rehoboth for at least a century before the town was founded. In September CAMP Rehoboth Community Center / Letters from CAMP magazine hosts an annual Labor Day weekend event called SUNDANCE with an fundraiser auction and dance party at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. CAMP Rehoboth is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, gay and lesbian community service organization, originally developed to “Create A More Positive” relationship among all the people of the Rehoboth Beach area. Each October Rehoboth Beach hosts the Annual Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddlers Festival ( Happy Halloween - The Blessed Samhain Festival - Autumn Holidays Celebration) with a parade, Trick or Treat, and the very popular broom tossing event right at the beach. There is a summer bus service that makes it easy for beach goes to travel easily between Rehoboth Beach Delaware and Ocean City Maryland.

Greenland, flying close to Greenland, Kingdom of Denmark, Continental Airlines, Atlantic Ocean
 
01:49
Greenland is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and later Denmark) for more than a millennium. In 2008, the people of Greenland passed a referendum supporting greater autonomy; 75% of votes cast were in favour. Greenland is, in terms of area, the world's largest island, over 3/4 of which is covered by the only contemporary ice sheet outside of Antarctica. With a population of 56,370 (2013), it is the least densely populated country in the world. Greenland has been inhabited off and on for at least the last 4,500 years by Arctic peoples whose forebears migrated there from Canada. Norsemen settled on the uninhabited southern part of Greenland beginning in the 10th century. Inuit peoples arrived in the 13th century. The Norse colonies disappeared in the late 15th century. In the early 18th century, Scandinavia and Greenland came back into contact with each other, and Denmark established sovereignty over the island. Having been ruled by Denmark--Norway for centuries, Greenland became a Danish colony in 1814, and a part of the Danish Realm in 1953 under the Constitution of Denmark. In 1973, Greenland joined the European Economic Community with Denmark. However, in 1983, a majority of the population voted for Greenland to withdraw from the EEC in a referendum and Greenland officially withdrew in 1985. In 1979, Denmark granted home rule to Greenland, and in 2008, Greenlanders voted to transfer more power from the Danish royal government to the local Greenlandic government. Under the new structure, in effect since 21 June 2009, the Danish government retains control of foreign affairs, national defence, the police force, and the justice system. It also retains control of monetary policy, providing an initial annual subsidy of DKK 3.4 billion, slated to diminish gradually over time as Greenland's economy is strengthened by increased income from the extraction of natural resources. Greenland lies between latitudes 59° and 83°N, and longitudes 11° and 74°W and is the third largest country in North America. The Atlantic Ocean borders Greenland's southeast; the Greenland Sea is to the east; the Arctic Ocean is to the north; and Baffin Bay is to the west. The nearest countries are Canada, to the west across Baffin Bay, and Iceland, east of Greenland in the Atlantic Ocean. Greenland also contains the world's largest national park, and is the world's largest island and the largest dependent territory by area in the world. The average daily temperature of Nuuk, Greenland vary over the season from -8 to 7 °C (18 to 45 °F). The total area of Greenland is 2,166,086 km2 (836,330 sq mi) (including other offshore minor islands), of which the Greenland ice sheet covers 1,755,637 km2 (677,855 sq mi) (81%) and has a volume of approximately 2,850,000 km3 (680,000 cu mi). The highest point on Greenland is Gunnbjørn Fjeld at 3,700 m (12,139 ft). The majority of Greenland, however, is less than 1,500 m (4,921 ft) in elevation. The weight of the ice sheet has depressed the central land area to form a basin lying more than 300 m (984 ft) below sea level, while elevations rise suddenly and steeply near the coast. The ice flows generally to the coast from the centre of the island. A survey led by French scientist Paul-Emile Victor in 1951 concluded that, under the ice sheet, Greenland is composed of three large islands. All towns and settlements of Greenland are situated along the ice-free coast, with the population being concentrated along the west coast. The northeastern part of Greenland is not part of any municipality, but is the site of the world's largest national park, Northeast Greenland National Park.All towns and settlements of Greenland are situated along the ice-free coast, with the population being concentrated along the west coast. The northeastern part of Greenland is not part of any municipality, but is the site of the world's largest national park, Northeast Greenland National Park. At least four scientific expedition stations and camps had been established on the ice sheet in the ice-covered central part of Greenland (indicated as pale blue in the map to the right): Eismitte, North Ice, North GRIP Camp and The Raven Skiway. Currently, there is a year-round station, Summit Camp, on the ice sheet, established in 1989. The radio station Jørgen Brønlund Fjord was, until 1950, the northernmost permanent outpost in the world. The extreme north of Greenland, Peary Land, is not covered by an ice sheet, because the air there is too dry to produce snow, which is essential in the production and maintenance of an ice sheet. If the Greenland ice sheet were to melt away completely, the world's sea level would rise by more than 7 m (23 ft).

Having been ruled by Denmark--Norway for centuries, Greenland became a Danish colony in 1814, and a part of the Danish Realm in 1953 under the Constitution of Denmark. In 1973, Greenland joined the European Economic Community with Denmark. However, in 1983, a majority of the population voted for Greenland to withdraw from the EEC in a referendum and Greenland officially withdrew in 1985. In 1979, Denmark granted home rule to Greenland, and in 2008, Greenlanders voted to transfer more power from the Danish royal government to the local Greenlandic government. Under the new structure, in effect since 21 June 2009, the Danish government retains control of foreign affairs, national defence, the police force, and the justice system. It also retains control of monetary policy, providing an initial annual subsidy of DKK 3.4 billion, slated to diminish gradually over time as Greenland's economy is strengthened by increased income from the extraction of natural resources. Greenland lies between latitudes 59° and 83°N, and longitudes 11° and 74°W and is the third largest country in North America. The Atlantic Ocean borders Greenland's southeast; the Greenland Sea is to the east; the Arctic Ocean is to the north; and Baffin Bay is to the west. The nearest countries are Canada, to the west across Baffin Bay, and Iceland, east of Greenland in the Atlantic Ocean. Greenland also contains the world's largest national park, and is the world's largest island and the largest dependent territory by area in the world. The average daily temperature of Nuuk, Greenland vary over the season from -8 to 7 °C (18 to 45 °F). The total area of Greenland is 2,166,086 km2 (836,330 sq mi) (including other offshore minor islands), of which the Greenland ice sheet covers 1,755,637 km2 (677,855 sq mi) (81%) and has a volume of approximately 2,850,000 km3 (680,000 cu mi). The highest point on Greenland is Gunnbjørn Fjeld at 3,700 m (12,139 ft). The majority of Greenland, however, is less than 1,500 m (4,921 ft) in elevation. The weight of the ice sheet has depressed the central land area to form a basin lying more than 300 m (984 ft) below sea level, while elevations rise suddenly and steeply near the coast. The ice flows generally to the coast from the centre of the island. A survey led by French scientist Paul-Emile Victor in 1951 concluded that, under the ice sheet, Greenland is composed of three large islands. All towns and settlements of Greenland are situated along the ice-free coast, with the population being concentrated along the west coast. The northeastern part of Greenland is not part of any municipality, but is the site of the world's largest national park, Northeast Greenland National Park.All towns and settlements of Greenland are situated along the ice-free coast, with the population being concentrated along the west coast. The northeastern part of Greenland is not part of any municipality, but is the site of the world's largest national park, Northeast Greenland National Park. At least four scientific expedition stations and camps had been established on the ice sheet in the ice-covered central part of Greenland (indicated as pale blue in the map to the right): Eismitte, North Ice, North GRIP Camp and The Raven Skiway. Currently, there is a year-round station, Summit Camp, on the ice sheet, established in 1989. The radio station Jørgen Brønlund Fjord was, until 1950, the northernmost permanent outpost in the world. The extreme north of Greenland, Peary Land, is not covered by an ice sheet, because the air there is too dry to produce snow, which is essential in the production and maintenance of an ice sheet. If the Greenland ice sheet were to melt away completely, the world's sea level would rise by more than 7 m (23 ft).

Gulf Stream and the Next Ice Age - Documentary
 
51:30
The Gulf Stream and The Next Ice Age is about the consequences of global warming on The Great Atlantic Conveyor, which has to do with regulating climate and the fear that the melting of ice will stop it, perhaps triggering an ice age. In the battle against climate change there is no enemy to fight, just our attitudes. - Nicolas Koutsikas, Director. Climate Change is hot on the political and social agenda internationally. Our climate is changing, with industrial production, habitat, transport and everyday human activities acknowledged as causes of global warming. The Gulf Stream and the Next Ice Age is a one-hour documentary which explores the results of a recent American government report that believes the collapse of thermohaline circulation will take place around the year 2010 and impose a minor ice age on Europe. Could Dublin acquire a climate like Spitzberg, and London like that of Siberia? The Gulf Stream is a powerful surface current, driven by the Trade Winds. Its origins lie in the Gulf of Mexico and it carries the tropical waters from the Florida Strait to the great banks of the United States, where it heads eastward, carrying its warm waters to the borders of the North Atlantic. As soon as the tropical waters hit the Arctic Ocean, they cool abruptly and plunge towards the abyssal zone to form a loop, known as "thermohaline circulation." Then, like an immense conveyor belt that slows down in the ocean depths, it sets out again southward to rejoin the beginning of the Gulf Stream.

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth

Watch the latest in the Ocean series - This is the most over-fished sea in the world: https://youtu.be/oaW2rqJjXvs The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

The belt of volcanic activity is called the Ring of Fire. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO The Ring of Fire is a band of volcanoes and frequent earthquakes that runs from New Zealand, up through Eastern Asia, across the Bering Strait and all the way down to the Southern tip of Chile. Volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis appear around the boundaries of the several, fast moving, tectonic plates that make up the region. When the plates collide, they create areas of volatility. The Ring of Fire sees more natural disasters than anywhere else on Earth, but what makes it particularly dangerous is that few countries are prepared. To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view.

Whale Call
 
02:40
The North Atlantic right whale got its name from whalers. Because these whales travel slowly and spend a lot of time at the surface, they were easy targets. For whalers they were the "right" whales to hunt. With fewer than 400 left, they are now the "right" whales to save. Marine biologists track their migratory routes off North America for the spring and fall, but the wintering grounds for much of the right whale population are unknown. Using hydrophones, scientists recorded whale calls in the waters between Greenland and Iceland from July to December of 2007. A hydrophone is simply a microphone designed to capture underwater sounds. North Atlantic right whale calls sound like screams, bangs, and groans. After deciphering thousands of these new recordings, there was evidence of right whales calling nearby many times. This area was thought to be an abandoned habitat, but this discovery confirms that it continues to be used. New discoveries always lead to more questions: How many whales are there? Could these whales be members of a totally separate population, or even an eastern population thought to be extinct? Whatever the answers may be, hydrophones helped us find these whales in a hard to reach location. But most important, if we know where these right whales are wintering, then we can better protect them and maybe even help them recover. Credits: NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory.

Canadian Landscape
 
43:00
Canada (French: [kanadɑ]) is a country located in the northern part of North America. Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles), making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Canada's southern border with the United States is the world's longest bi-national land border. As a whole, Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land area being dominated by forest and tundra. Consequently, its population is highly urbanized, with 82 percent of the 35.15 million people concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, many near the southern border. Its capital is Ottawa, and its three largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Canada's climate varies widely across its vast area, ranging from arctic weather in the north, to hot summers in the southern regions, with four distinct seasons. Various indigenous peoples have inhabited what is now Canada for thousands of years prior to European colonization. Beginning in the 16th century, the British and French established colonies, the first being the colony of Canada established by France in 1535. As a consequence of various armed conflicts, British North America gained and lost territory until, by the late 18th century, it controlled most of what comprises Canada today. On July 1, 1867, the colonies of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia were federated to form the semi-autonomous federal Dominion named Canada. This began an accretion of provinces and territories to the Dominion to the present ten provinces and three territories forming contemporary Canada. Canada achieved independence gradually beginning with responsible government in the 1830s and culminating with the patriation of the Constitution in 1982. In 1931, Canada achieved near-total independence from the United Kingdom with the Statute of Westminster, except for the power to amend its constitution. Canada is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II being the head of state. The country is officially bilingual at the federal level. It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many other countries. Its advanced economy is the tenth-largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada's long and complex relationship with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture. Canada is a developed country and has the fifteenth-highest nominal per capita income globally as well as the tenth-highest ranking in the Human Development Index. It ranks among the highest in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education. Canada is a realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, a member of the Francophonie, and part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings including the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G7 (formerly G8), the Group of Ten, the G20, the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

People Seek Answers In North Atlantic Right Whale Deaths As Only 500 Remain
 
03:31
Endangered North Atlantic Right whales have experienced a shocking number of fatalities in 2017, causing alarm among biologists and conservationists for their depleting population of only 500 animals. Yesterday, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) was on Martha’s Vineyard conducting a necropsy (animal autopsy) on the most recently reported dead Right whale. Sadly, initial findings from the investigation showed lesions consistent with entanglement wounds, though further tests are still pending. “A population this small cannot withstand such a drastic decrease in numbers over such a short period of time,” said Brian Sharp, IFAW’s Marine Mammal Rescue, and Research Manager, “there is a pressing need to determine the factors contributing to their deaths in order to potentially institute appropriate mitigation efforts.” Earlier this year, in April, IFAW led another investigation into the death of a young female Right whale in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other stranding network partners. Her necropsy showed obvious signs of blunt force trauma indicative of a vessel strike. “It’s really worrisome to know that another young Right whale has died in our waters,” said Misty Niemeyer, Necropsy Coordinator for IFAW. “As an endangered species of approximately 500 individuals, every animal is important for the survival of the population. We need to learn as much as we can from this tragic death and gain valuable insight in hopes to further protect the species.” The majority of recent Right whale fatalities have occurred in Canada’s Gulf of St. Lawrence. Since June 7, 2017, at least ten deceased North Atlantic Right whales have been discovered there. The cause of death for at least two of the whales was determined to be blunt force trauma from a vessel strike and one death occurred from entanglement in fishing gear. The death rate of this endangered species is so alarming, Fisheries and Oceans Canada closed down several snow crab fishing areas in the Gulf of St. Lawrence early in an effort to reduce the risk of whale’s encountering fishing gear. Rerouting shipping lanes and reducing ocean noise are also suggested solutions to reduce the number of fatalities. Sonic Sea, an Emmy-nominated documentary created by IFAW and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), delves into the crisis of ocean noise and its impact on marine mammals. In addition to raising awareness about the problems ocean noise causes with marine life, IFAW also partnered with several marine conservation organizations to create the mobile app, Whale Alert, to notify mariners of nearby whales. The app notifies mariners of whales nearby, allowing vessels to adjust speed and direction to avoid harmful collisions with whales. IFAW is just beginning a project in collaboration with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution that will summarize mortality patterns in the North Atlantic right whale population over the past 12 years to better help policy-makers institute protections for this endangered species. IFAW has long advocated for Right whale protection and has worked alongside industry and government to implement best practices to help ensure their survival.

Canada
 
02:35
Canada is a country occupying most of northern North America, extending from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward into the Arctic Ocean. It is the world's second largest country by total area. Canada's common border with the United States to the south and northwest is the longest in the world. The land occupied by Canada was inhabited for millennia by various groups of Aboriginal people. Beginning in the late 15th century, British and French expeditions explored, and later settled along, the Atlantic coast. France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America in 1763 after the Seven Years' War. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began an accretion of provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy from the United Kingdom. This widening autonomy was highlighted by the Statute of Westminster of 1931 and culminated in the Canada Act of 1982, which severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the British parliament. A federation consisting of ten provinces and three territories, Canada is governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. It is a bilingual nation with both English and French as official languages at the federal level. One of the world's highly developed countries, Canada has a diversified economy that is reliant upon its abundant natural resources and upon trade—particularly with the United States, with which Canada has had a long and complex relationship. It is a member of the G8, G-20, NATO, OECD, WTO, Commonwealth, Francophonie, OAS, APEC, and UN. ( souce Wikipedia )

The North Atlantic Climate (Part 3): Adapting to warmer cities
 
07:41
This is the 3rd part of the NACLIM film. The project aims to better understand the effects of the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans on global climate change. Climate change is predicted to cause more frequent and higher intensity extreme weather events, such as heat waves. Within NACLIM, scientists are trying to find out how to prepare our society for this. In particular European cities which experience the urban heat island effect are being studied. Three European cities have been involved in the research studies. Griet Lambrechts from the municipality of Antwerp, Sara Dionísio from the city council of Almada, as well as Jörn Welsch from the senate of Berlin explain the needs and expectations of their cities. Scientific clarification is provided by our scientists Dirk Lauwaet from the Flemish Institution for Technological Research (VITO) and Catherine Stevens from GIM Belgium. Andrea Tilche from the European Commission summarises the necessary measures to enhance climate science and climate services in Europe.
The Top 10 Largest Cities In Canada
 
04:04
A slideshow of the 10 largest metropolitan areas in Canada. Canada is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward into the Arctic Ocean. It is the world's second largest country by total area. Canada's common border with the United States to the south and northwest is the longest in the world. Canada is a federal state that is governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. It is a bilingual nation with both English and French as official languages at the federal level. One of the world's most highly developed countries, Canada has a diversified economy that is reliant upon its abundant natural resources and upon trade -- particularly with the United States, with which Canada has had a long and complex relationship. It is a member of the G7, G8, G20, NATO, OECD, WTO, Commonwealth of Nations, Francophonie, OAS, APEC, and UN. With the eighth-highest Human Development Index globally, it has one of the highest standards of living in the world. Canada occupies a major northern portion of North America, sharing the land borders with the contiguous United States to the south and the US state of Alaska to the northwest, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west; to the north lies the Arctic Ocean. Canada is the second-largest country in the world, after Russia. The population density, 3.3 inhabitants per square kilometre (8.5 /sq mi), is among the lowest in the world. The most densely populated part of the country is the Quebec City -- Windsor Corridor, situated in Southern Quebec and Southern Ontario along the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence River. Average winter and summer high temperatures across Canada vary according to the location. Winters can be harsh in many regions of the country, particularly in the interior and Prairie provinces, which experience a continental climate, where daily average temperatures are near −15 °C (5 °F) but can drop below −40 °C (−40 °F) with severe wind chills. In noncoastal regions, snow can cover the ground almost six months of the year (more in the north). Coastal British Columbia has a temperate climate, with a mild and rainy winter. On the east and west coasts, average high temperatures are generally in the low 20s °C (70s °F), while between the coasts, the average summer high temperature ranges from 25 to 33 °C (77 to 89 °F), with occasional extreme heat in some interior locations well exceeding 40 °C (105 °F). Canada has a total population of 34,682,937, an increase of 5.9 percent since 2001. Population in Canada increased from 1990 to 2008 with 5.8 million and 20.9% growth in population compared to 21.7% growth in the USA and 31.2% growth in Mexico. According to the OECD/World Bank population statistics between 1990--2008 the world population growth was 27 % and 1,423 million persons. Population growth is from immigration and, to a lesser extent, natural growth. About four-fifths of Canada's population lives within 150 kilometres (93 mi) of the United States border. Canada has one of the highest per-capita immigration rates in the world, driven by economic policy and family reunification, and is aiming for between 240,000 and 265,000 new permanent residents in 2011, the same number of immigrants as in recent years. New immigrants settle mostly in major urban areas like Toronto and Vancouver. Canada also accepts large numbers of refugees. The country resettles over one in 10 of the world's refugees. Canadian provinces and territories are responsible for education. Each system is similar, while reflecting regional history, culture and geography. The mandatory school age ranges between 5--7 to 16--18 years, contributing to an adult literacy rate of 99 percent. In 2002, 43 percent of Canadians aged 25 to 64 possessed a post-secondary education; for those aged 25 to 34, the rate of post-secondary education reached 51 percent. Canada's two official languages are English and French. Official bilingualism is defined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Official Languages Act, and Official Language Regulations; it is applied by the Commissioner of Official Languages. English and French have equal status in federal courts, Parliament, and in all federal institutions. Citizens have the right, where there is sufficient demand, to receive federal government services in either English or French, and official-language minorities are guaranteed their own schools in all provinces and territories. http://www.canada.ca/ http://caen.canada.travel/ http://www.toronto.ca/

List Of ALL Caribbean Countries From Poorest To Richest| 2018 - 2019
 
07:06
23 Richest Caribbean Countries Remake, 2018 - 2019 The Caribbean Sea, its islands, and the surrounding coasts on continental mainland together represent the Caribbean region. The richest economies in this region are as follows: The Bahamas The Bahamas is an archipelagic country made up of over 700 islands, islets, and cays. It is located to the north of Cuba in the Atlantic Ocean. The country has an estimated population of 391,232 people. It is the richest country in the Caribbean region by GDP per capita. The economy of the country relies heavily on the tourism industry. The sector accounts for over 60% of the national GDP and employs nearly 50% of the national workforce. Banking and other financial services are the second biggest contributor to the Bahamian economy, accounting for about 15% of the GDP. Agriculture accounts for about 5 to 7% of the national GDP. Major crops grown in the country include onions, tomatoes, sugar cane, sweet potatoes, okra, and a few others. Barbados The island nation of Barbados is the world’s 53rd richest and the Caribbean’s second richest country in terms of GDP per capita. The country’s economy can be described as a well-developed mixed type economy. The people of this country enjoy fairly high standards of living. Although historically, agriculture was the mainstay of the economy of Barbados, the focus has currently shifted to tourism and manufacturing. The information and finance services also contribute significantly to the national economy. The building construction industry is also thriving in Barbados. The country has the Caribbean’s largest stock exchange. Belize Belize is a Central American country with a coastline on the Caribbean Sea. The economy of the nation is small but thriving. It is mainly a private enterprise economy. The country relies heavily on the export revenue earned by the export of petroleum and oil, and agricultural products. The construction business and tourism sector are the fastest growing industries in the country. Industrial mineral production in the country is also an important economic activity. Sugar cane and banana are the chief crops grown in Belize. The government of the country is focussing on developing the tourism sector in the country. Due to the coastal location of the country and the facility provided to non-residents to establish accounts in the country, drug trafficking and money laundering cases are common. Such activities have a negative impact on Belize’s economy. Costa Rica Located in Central America, Costa Rica is the Caribbean region's fourth richest economy by GDP per capita. The economy of the country can be described as fairly stable with moderate rates of inflation and a fairly high rate of GDP growth. The encouraging investment and tax policies of the country favor foreign investment in the region. Many foreign companies thus operate here of which nearly 50% are American companies. As of 2016, 75.9% of the national GDP is contributed by the services sector. The industrial and the agricultural sector contribute about 18.6% and 5.5% to the national GDP of Costa Rica. Colombia Colombia is the fifth most prosperous economy in the Caribbean region. Although the economy was highly dependent on agriculture in the past, rapid urbanization in the 20th century shifted the focus from agriculture to other economic sectors. Today, agriculture accounts for only about 6.6% of the Colombian GDP while industry and services account for 19.6% and 64.6% of the national GDP, respectively. The country is rich in natural resources with its most profitable exports being minerals, oils, agricultural products, sugar, precious stones, etc. The Richest Caribbean Countries -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Angel Fish Catch And Cooked With Curry Lobster And Kasava| Treasure Beach Jamaica" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bchlr8jmZZA -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Sundaland is in the tropics, surrounded by oceans, and within the Ring of Fire, where a large number of volcanic eruptions occur. Benefitting from the heavy precipitation, volcanic deposits in Sundaland develop into some of the richest forestry and agricultural lands, and developed into some of the richest fauna on Earth. The “Out of Africa” hypothesis is a theory that argues that every modern human being is descended from a small group in Africa, who then dispersed into the wider world. Most versions of the southern dispersal hypothesis suggests that modern humans left Africa between 130,000 and 70,000 years ago, and traveled along the coasts of Arabia, India and Sundaland, arriving in Australia by 50,000 to 40,000 years ago. The “Out of Sundaland” migration model argues that the origin of the Austronesian speakers is in the islands of Southeast Asia. Ideal climatic conditions and natural resources for development were found in Sundaland. After migrating from the semi-deserted savannas of Africa, man first found a place where food was abundant and it was there that they invented farming, agriculture, trading and civilization, which made humanity first flourished. A striking thing that can be observed in this model is the dispersal of population to the other part of the world about 11,000 years ago. An unusual event was happened here. The event is detected from the observation data. The change of the world temperature made the ice on the north pole to melt and the sea level continued to rise. Cracks in the earth’s crust as the weight of the ice shifted to the seas could set off catastrophic events. The most significant one is at the end of the Younger Dryas period. Earthquakes, volcano eruptions, super waves and floods engulfed the coastal cultures and all the flat continental shelves of Sundaland, and wiped out many populations. As the sea rolled in, there was a mass migration of the survivors from the sinking continent. From the legends, myths and tales, Sundaland has many names, among others are Garden of Eden, Paradise, Dilmun, Nippur, Nisir, Neserser, Ta Netjer, Land of Punt, Land of Ophir, Atlantis, Kumari Kandam, Pandya, Kangdez, Tollan and Siwan, Taprobana, and Golden Khersonese. The Destruction of Atlantis Plato mentioned that the island of Atlantis was beset, in a night and a day, by an earthquake and a flood in a night and a day, 9,000 years before Solon, or about 11,600 years ago. This accurately coincided with the cataclysm at the end of the Younger Dryas period. In some other his explanations, it is implied that the flood was coming from the sea, so the possibility is a tsunami. Plato did not recognize “tsunami” so he equated it to “flood”. Earthquakes and tsunamis are very often correlated. Frequent and significant earthquakes, tsunamis and volcano eruptions took place in Southeast Asia, one of the most complex tectonic region on Earth. Tsunami are known for their dramatic run-up heights, can also be excited or amplified in height considerably in shallow waters and on flat plains, and can oscillate back and forth within harbors and bays. We could speculate that the destruction of Atlantis was among others caused by a tsunami in this region. It was due to the tsunami waves traveling in shallow water, that was the ancient Java Sea, and penetrated inland on a very flat plain. The ancient Java Sea was forming a gulf, which could cause the wave became much higher and prolonged, and destructive. Plato also describes that the lands of Atlantis and “the Athens” were sunken ceaselessly afterwards. This is in line with the recent knowledge of post-glacial sea level rise. The sea level kept on rising until about 6,000 years ago, sinking the low lands as well as low plains in Sundaland. The ruin of the Atlantis city and its story were buried forever under the sea. Then, it was remembered by the Egyptians who migrated from there, and wrote them on their sacred registers. More articles at www.atlantisjavasea.com
Toxic oil spill and toxic rains could destroy North America

Toxic oil spill and toxic rains could destroy North America The British Petroleum oil spill is threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with "total destruction," reports say. An ominous report by Russia's Ministry of Natural Resources warned of the impending disaster resulting from the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico, calling it the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history, the European Union Times reported. Russian scientists believe BP is pumping millions of gallons of Corexit 9500, a chemical dispersal agent, under the Gulf of Mexico waters to hide the full extent of the leak, now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day. Experts say Corexit 9500 is a solvent four times more toxic than oil. The agent, scientists believe, has a 2.61ppm toxicity level, and when mixed with the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, its molecules will be able to "phase transition." This transition involves the change of the liquid into a gaseous state, which can be absorbed by clouds. The gas will then be released as "toxic rain" leading to "unimaginable environmental catastrophe" destroying all life forms from the "bottom of the evolutionary chart to the top," the report said.

Sahara Morocco tours

Sahara Morocco tours - Sahara Morocco trip Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The Western Sahara is a disputed territory in the Maghreb region of North Africa, bordered by Morocco to the north, Algeria to the extreme northeast, Mauritania to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometres (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000, of whom nearly 40% live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara. Occupied by Spain since the late 19th century, the Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories since 1963 after a Moroccan demand.[4] It is the most populous territory on that list, and by far the largest in area. In 1965, the UN General Assembly adopted its first resolution on Western Sahara, asking Spain to decolonise the territory. One year later, a new resolution was passed by the General Assembly requesting that a referendum be held by Spain on self-determination. In 1975, Spain relinquished the administrative control of the territory to a joint administration by Morocco (which had formally claimed the territory since 1957) and Mauritania.[6] A war erupted between those countries and the Sahrawi national liberation movement, the Polisario Front, which proclaimed the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) with a government-in-exile in Tindouf, Algeria. Mauritania withdrew in 1979, and Morocco eventually secured effective control of most of the territory, including all the major cities and natural resources. Since a United Nations-sponsored ceasefire agreement in 1991, two thirds of the territory (including most of the Atlantic coast line)[8] has been controlled by Morocco and the remainder by the SADR, strongly backed by Algeria.[9] Internationally, countries such as the United States and Russia have taken a generally ambiguous and neutral position on each side's claims, and have pressed both parties to agree on a peaceful resolution. Both Morocco and Polisario have sought to boost their claims by accumulating formal recognition, essentially from African, Asian, and Latin American states in the developing world. The Polisario Front has won formal recognition for SADR from 53 states, and was extended membership in the African Union. Morocco has won recognition or support for its position from several African governments and from most of the Arab League. In both instances, recognitions have, over the past two decades, been extended and withdrawn according to changing international trends.[citation needed] As of 2006, no other member state of the United Nations has recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara.

► Ice Race - Exploitation - THE END of FISHING? (FULL Documentary)
 
48:56
What are the challenges being faced by one of the world’s most important larders, the Artic, now that the ice is melting? The race to exploit vast natural resources has commenced in one of the world’s most important larders. The earth’s most vulnerable ecosystem is under threat from dying fish, oil spills and global warming. As the ice melts many people are being tempted to engage in predatory activities in the Arctic. An ocean from which the fish have previously disappeared - will this occur again? In the programme entitled “Predatory Activities” you will hear that climate change and increased petroleum activities in the future would change current hunting and fishing patterns. This would create new tension in the fragile administration of the northern areas. What challenges are we actually facing and how would they affect current fishing activities? Will the nations involved manage to cooperate? Previous predatory activities in the Arctic have left their mark for all eternity, with whales and fish being hunted to extinction simply by using basic hunting methods. The ice is now melting. High-tech trawlers, global oil companies and giant supertankers are all heading for the north. The race has started in earnest. However, at the same time our knowledge is better. Will we manage to look after this vulnerable area this time, or will the melting ice cause us to engage in new predatory activities with unexpected consequences?

Off Cape Canaveral, Team Frees Rare Right Whale From Entangling Ropes
 
00:11
January 15, 2011 -- Scientists successfully used a long pole with attached knife and buoy to help cut away ropes that had entangled a rare North Atlantic right whale off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Fla. The young female right whale was sedated at sea, in order to allow the team to approch safely. This is only the second time a free-swimming whale has been successfully sedated to enable disentanglement efforts, according to NOAA. Agencies and groups involved in the rescue included: NOAA Fisheries Service, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, University of Florida, EcoHealth Alliance, and Coastwise Consulting. The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies and the New England Aquarium also provided offsite support. Credit: Georgia Department of Natural Resources

Namibia Offers Gateway to African Markets, Says President
 
04:15
Namibia's human and natural resources offer limitless potential as a commercial hub and channel to the Southern African region that represents a market upwards of 300 million people, said Dr. Hage Geingob, president of Namibia. "We have peace and democracy and many of our neighbors are landlocked, we will enable them to be sea-linked," said Geingob. "We have educational facilities, our hospitals and schools are good, so Namibia is a place to base yourself and service the rest of Africa." "Namibia is the jewel in Africa, that is why Angelina Jolie came to Namibia to deliver her baby there," added Geingob. Situated on Africa's south-western Atlantic Ocean seaboard, Namibia's neighboring countries are Angola to the north, Botswana and Zimbabwe to the east and South Africa to the south, making the country quite literally a portal of transit and commerce for the region. Namibia is already involved in major marine transport through the port of Walvis-Bay, one of Africa's most efficient ports, with the potential to provide the shortest route for cargo. At present the World Bank rates Namibia as an "affluent and high-ranking upper middle income" country. Other indicators of Namibia's favorable economic climate include low interest rates, fiscal stimulus, rapid household consumption growth, low inflation and the lack of restrictions on the repatriation of foreign capital with laws protecting the rights of foreign investors. Geingob is actively implementing the Harambee Prosperity Plan intended to increase development and improve living standards for all Namibians. The Kiswahili word "Harambee" which means, "Pull together in the same direction" has been deliberately selected to call for unity and encourage Namibians to work towards a common purpose. Namibia, often described as "Africa's optimist", is also promoting its "Invest in Namibia Conference" in early November. The Conference will profile Namibia's national trade and investment strategies as well as specific business opportunities in the sectors of energy, agriculture, tourism, manufacturing and infrastructure development.
