Here you will find New Internationalist’s coverage of the earth’s polar regions – the Arctic and the Antarctic.
We focus on the impacts of the climate crisis on these icy landscapes, discussing melting sea ice and ocean warming, as well as the lives of the peoples who live here. We also also cover the measures being taken to protect the poles, such as the Antarctic Treaty and the activists protesting drilling and mining in the region.
