There is growing big-power rivalry over the Arctic’s massive reserves of valuable natural resources. But at what price? Guests: Michael Paul (security expert), Stefan Rahmstorf (climatologist), Irina Filatova (DW's Russian desk)
Michael Paul is a specialist on security issues and the Arctic with the German Institute for International and Security Affairs. His opinion: "In light of the competing security interests of Russia, China and America, we urgently need a military dialogue."
Stefan Rahmstorf is an oceanographer and climatologist from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. He argues that: "Things that happen in the Arctic don't necessarily stay in the Arctic."
Irina Filatova from DW's Russian desk in Bonn says: "The Arctic has vast economic resources. And Russia wants a big slice of the cake."
