Who does the Arctic belong to? The vast region was long seen as little more than snow and ice.
But now three world powers – Russia, China and the United States – are leading the charge to take control of the immense natural resources and new trade routes that are opening up, even as a potential climate catastrophe takes hold. So, on To the Point, we ask: “Who will win the race for the Arctic’s riches?”
Guests this week are Michael Paul (security expert), Stefan Rahmstorf (climatologist), Irina Filatova (DW’s Russian desk)DW News YouTube Channel
