Climate – Presentation of the web documentary “79° North” (March 17, 2015)

On the occasion of the conference entitled “The Arctic as an early warning sentinel of climate change,” in which Mr. Laurent Fabius will participate this morning together with his Norwegian counterpart, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development will present the web documentary “79° North.”

This interactive program, consisting of photographs by Frédéric de La Mure in the run-up to the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, was produced in the Norwegian archipelago of Spitsbergen, at the research station in Ny-Alesund near the 79th parallel north.

This web documentary’s varied multimedia content provides us with a better understanding of the effects of climate disruption – and notably the fact that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as anywhere else in the world – as well as the mobilization of the scientific community and researchers around the world with respect to this issue.
