Here's an entirely fictional little video about what's going on in the Arctic. Sign the petition to help out in real life...

We got the idea for this video after Russia planted a flag deep under the ocean ice as part of their bid to control vast areas of the Arctic. As if this wasn't silly enough, some news programmes mistakenly included footage from the movie Titanic in their reports! (The submarine used by Russia had also been in the movie.)

But the story behind the story is real. Global warming is melting the Arctic at an alarming rate. This summer the Arctic ice cover was the smallest ever recorded. As a result, there really is a race on to grab up the oil, gas and other resources once protected by ice.

But the more oil and gas we burn, the faster the Arctic melts and the closer our planet comes to catastrophic climate change. More here...
