          Kari (14) and Jakob (12) are sailing to Greenland. Of course, the two teenagers are not the only passengers on board of the mega-steamer MS Albatros. But with access to all areas, the young journalists are visiting lots of crewmembers at work, as for example Victor, who is the boss of the engine room. They also interview ice-pilot Nils Kallesen, hotel manager Michael Heller, cruise director Michael van Osterhout and – of course – captain Morten Hansen. The captain of the MS Albatros is sailing the 3rd time from Bremerhaven to Greenland but neither the ship, nor the captain, has ever been this far north of Greenland before. On their trip over the Atlantic Ocean, they came into a storm. The waves rise 10 metres high. The whole ship is creaking and the next day captain Hansen has to tell the passengers, that this was his worst night ever on the MS Albatros. In Greenland, they are visiting the most interesting spots as for example Sisimiut, Quasigianguit, Quaqortoq, Aasiat or Nuuk. Together with the foreign minister Aleqa Hammond they are talking about the big challenges: global warming will change everything in Greenland. The Icebergs are melting away, even in the celebrated Ilulissat Icefjord. The captain wants to lead his passengers up to Ilulissat Icefjord, the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. Every day the Kangia-glacier edges around 40 meters of ice into the fjord. But first of all they have to cross the Atlantic ocean, a pretty stormy sea. A film by Reinhard Kungel

            Zum dritten Mal fährt Kapitän Hansen mit der MS Albatros von Bremerhaven nach Grönland, doch noch nie hat er sich mit einem Kreuzfahrtschiff so weit in den Norden der größten Insel der Welt vorgewagt. Mit an Bord ist der dänische Eislotse Nils Kallesen - doch gegen einen Sturm ist auch er machtlos. Und so schaukelt das 200-Meter-Schiff wie eine Nussschale über die Riesenwellen. Die MS Albatros folgt den Spuren der Wikinger, die schon vor einem Jahrtausend die Insel im Nordmeer besiedelten. Landschaftlicher Höhepunkt der Grönlandreise ist die Diskobucht und insbesondere der Eisfjord mit seinem Kangia Gletscher. Nirgendwo auf der nördlichen Halbkugel gibt es so große Eisberge zu bestaunen wie hier. Von der zerklüfteten Steilkante des Eisstroms brechen alljährlich etwa 35 Kubikkilometer Gletscher-eis ab. Bis in die 90er Jahre war der Eisfjord zugefroren, heute werfen hier die Fischer ihre Netze aus. Der Eisfjord zeigt auf dramatische Weise die Folgen des Klimawandels. Die UNESCO hat ihn 2004 zum Weltkulturerbe ernannt. Ein Film von Reinhard Kungel

              From Bremerhaven to Greenland. For Morten Hansen, the captain of the „MS Albatros“, this voyage is like a dream come true. He is following the course of his Norwegian ancestors, the Vikings. But first of all they have to cross the Atlantic ocean, a pretty stormy sea and therefore Morten Hansen has to fight against 10-meter-waves. And there, rising up out of nowhere: The first Nordic settlements nestle on a narrow peninsula between steep cliffs and rocks, engulfed by Greenland's splendid Nature. You have to imagine the Viking settlements like this. Along Greenland's west coast they reach the Polar Circle, joined by shooting stars and polar lights. The further the journey via Davis Strait takes us along the west coast into Baffin Bay, the bigger they get: Demonic sea monsters, frozen mythical figures and gigantic ice cathedrals rise out of the sea, more than hundred meters high. The „Eqip Sermia“ Glacier in the north of Disko Bay. Here the ice sheet calves off a 2.3-kilometer-broad crest directly into the sea. Finally they reach the Ilulissat Icefjord. Only in this place in the northern hemisphere will you see gigantic icebergs like these. Every year, some 35 cubic kilometers of ice break off the jagged edge of the glacier tongue that advances towards the sea 20 meters every day. In 2004, the ice fjord was declared a world heritage site. The melting icebergs have since been presenting us with a bitter-sweet natural spectacle, under the protection of the United Nations.

                Dr. Veerabhadran Ramanathan, An atmospheric scientist cited for fundamental contributions to our modern understanding of climate change, Dr. Veerabhadran Ramanathan was the first to discover the greenhouse effect of halocarbons and to predict global warming. Dr. Ramanathan has written that “the effect of global gases on global warming is, in my opinion, the most important environmental issue facing the world today.” Dr. Ramanathan was born in Madurai, India. At the age of 11, he moved with his family to Bangalore. Unfortunately, the classes at the school he attended were taught in English and not his native Tamil. He admits that he “lost the habit of listening to my teachers and had to figure out things on my own.” He received his bachelor’s degree in engineering from Annamalai University and a master’s degree from the Indian Institute of Science. In 1970, he arrived in the United States to study interferometry (the analysis of electromagnetic waves) at the State University of New York at Stony Brook under the direction of Dr. Robert Cess. Before Dr. Ramanathan could begin working on his Ph.D., Dr. Cess decided to change his research from interferometry and focus on planetary atmospheres. Dr. Ramanathan’s first major findings were in the mid-1970s and were related to the greenhouse effect of CFCs (clorofluorocarbons). Until that time, carbon dioxide was thought to be the sole greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. His focus then shifted to the radiative effects of clouds on the climate. This was done using the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment, which showed that clouds have a large cooling effect on the planet. Dr. Ramanathan is also interested in the impact of climate change on agriculture in India. In March 2007, he co-authored a white paper on Project Surya (“sun” in Sanskrit), in which inexpensive solar cookers will replace highly polluting cookstoves, traditionally employed in rural India. The byproducts of biofuel cooking and biomass burning are significant contributors to global warming, and results from the project will document the reductions in carbon dioxide and soot emissions. Dr. Ramanathan was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in 2002 and is currently a Distinguished Professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD, and a UNESCO Professor of Climate and Policy, TERI University, Delhi, India. He was co-organizer of a 2014 Vatican meeting on “Sustainable Humanity, Sustainable Nature” attended by social and natural scientists, philosophers and policy makers.
