Jason Box on Global Warming



Hurtigruten is very excited to have one of the worlds leading climatologists, Dr. Jason Box from The Byrd Polar Research Center about The Global Warming, lecturing on the voyage 14-DAY IN THE WAKE OF THE VIKINGS departing from Reykjavik on Sept. 26, 2010.

In this video Dr Box talks to talk show host Dave Martin from Ridin the Wave with Dave about global warming and what is happening to the Earth.

The voyage starts in Reykjavik, Iceland, where guests can take in some of the cosmopolitan city’s many museums and shops or sightsee among the glaciers, waterfalls and geysers just outside the city's boundaries. Four days are spent exploring the eastern and southern villages of Greenland including visits to Køge Bay, where the Greenland ice cap races to the sea; Umivik, the starting point of Fridtjof Nansen's epic first crossing of the Ice Cap; and Qassiarsuk, where Erik the Red in exile founded a colony that persisted for some 500 years. The ship then heads across the Labrador Sea, stopping in Newfoundland and then turning south to Halifax via St Anthony, Bonne Bay and Baddeck in Nova Scotia - taking time to visit three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: L’Anse Aux Meadows, where Norse settlers began to get a foot hold in North America; Red Bay; and Gros Morne National Park; among other excursions.
