The Baltic: A Sea in Peril
Because it is almost entirely enclosed, the Baltic Sea is the world's most fragile and most polluted bodies of water. It receives pollution from nine countries that have widely disparate natural resources, economies, social structures and mores. Some states are active in protecting the environment, but others are not. With these geographical circumstances, the Baltic suffers from pollution, utrification, invasive species, oil spills, and dumped World War II chemical weapons. As a result, it has more than 800 toxic hot spots. Under the patronage of His All Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch and His Excellency Mr. Romano Prodi, former President of the European Community, in this film theologians, scientists, policy makers, environmentalists and journalists generate practical initiatives to protect the Baltic. It illustrates the ecological damage in the Baltic as well as the considerable efforts underway to heal it. In addition, it explores the paticipants' continuing quest for a wisdom-based environmental ethos for the world.

Worried By Pollution, Swedes Point Finger At Kaliningrad
Environmental activists and officials in Sweden say the Baltic Sea is in trouble -- and that Kaliningrad, the Russian exclave to the sea's southeast, is responsible for an outsized share of the damage. Despite complaints and financial support from EU states, Kaliningrad has no sewage treatment system, and is pumping untreated waste into the Baltic.

English/Nat The E-U has launched a massive environmental clean-up campaign in St. Petersburg, one of Europe's most polluted cities. Once known as "the Venice of the north", St. Petersburg is now smothered in industrial waste, with most of it ending up in the Baltic Sea. After pressure from nearby Baltic countries, the authorities in the Russian city teamed up with Germany, Denmark and France to find a solution to its environmental ills. Awash in industrial waste, Tsar Peter the Great's Venice of the North emerged from Soviet neglect as the dirty old man of Europe. Oil spill pollution from Europe's fourth largest city, St Petersburg, was estimated in 1991 at 1700 tons. But European Union figures put pollution levels at anywhere between 10.000 and 40.000 tons yearly - as much as forty times the level of Hamburg. With no reliable monitoring system, as much as 80% of the oil spills are from unidentified sources. But the destination of the pollution is under no doubt - straight into the Baltic Sea. SOUNDBITE: The official figures given by the authorities in St Petersburg vary between 1200 and 1700 tonnes of oil spilled on the river surfaces of St Petersburg. However it is estimated that these figures are not reliable because of the fact that there is no reliable monitoring system, and they may be estimated far more higher. SUPER CAPTION:Gino Van Begin, ECAT Project Manager: After pressure from neighbouring Baltic countries, the authorities in St. Petersburg teamed up with Germany, Denmark and France to find a solution to its environmental ills. The Environmental Centre for Administration and Technology (ECAT) has imported equipment to deal with the problem. The team of experts from Hamburg, Aaborg and Le Havre are also training Russian staff to continue the project. The authorities are hoping that after several months the clean-up of the city's polluted waters will ensure that St. Petersburg, once again, lives up to its historic image as "the Venice of the north".

Pollution and solutions for the Baltic Sea
Going beneath the surface of the Stockholm Archipelago with WWF to find out how plastics and micro plastics are effecting the Baltic Sea. I’m in the Archipelago of Stockholm, Sweden. Nearly 30,000 islands, inlets and rocks make up this rugged landscape in the Baltic Sea. The water here is so calm, like a bathtub but without a plug hole – it takes over 30 years for the water to cycle through which means a lot of the pollution gets stuck here. I’ve been talking with Ottillia Thoreson, Program Director for WWF Baltic Eco Region Program and local sailing veteran and Föreningen Allmogebåtar Maritime Museum guide Ulf Johan Templeman about pollution and solutions for the Baltic Sea.

Save our Baltic Sea
The Baltic Sea is one of the most studied seas in the world. The environmental problems are well known. The main threats derive from eutrophication, hazardous substances, over-fishing and maritime transport. The Baltic Sea is surrounded by some of the worlds most environmentally conscious societies. And scientists all agree on the most important steps to take. Still, in many respects, the state of this sensitive and almost landlocked sea is deteriorating. The efforts to save the sea are spoiled by national disagreements and short-term interest. The future and life quality of 90 million people are affected by the Baltic Sea environment. The next ten years will be critical. Can we save the sea that ties us together? Filmmakers Mattias Klum and Folke Rydén are spending the next ten years documenting the efforts to save the Baltic Sea. Focusing on the decision-making processes for environmental, scientific and political issues, the aim is to produce a television documentary every other year in cooperation with public service broadcasters around the region. The first programme will be completed in the autumn of 2009.

Cleaning up the Baltic Sea - NEFCO
The Baltic Sea is heavily polluted by industrial and agricultural pollutants. Untreated sewage, which for centuries has been dumped into the sea, is one of those major pollutants. This video is about how NEFCO (Nordic Environment Finance Corporation), together with Vodokanal, the St.Petersburg, Russia, waterworks company is doing its part to clean up the Baltic Sea by financing wastewater treatment operations. http://www.nefco.org/newsroom/video_clips NEFCO is an environmental financing institution, which was established in 1990 by the five Nordic countries, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland. Since its inception, the corporation has financed a wide range of environmental projects http://www.nefco.org/projects in Central and Eastern European countries as well as in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. The corporation gives priority to projects that reduce the release of climate gases, improve the ecological status of the Baltic Sea or mitigate the release of toxic pollutants.

Cruise Ships - Toxic Waste on the High Seas | Global 3000
More than twenty million people go on cruises each year. Cruise ships burn heavy oil full of pollutants, which are emitted unfiltered into the atmosphere. It does not have to be this way. If the vessels burned diesel instead, the emissions would be significantly reduced, though the fuel costs would rise.

Pollution busting high tech in the freezing Arctic seas
(3 Oct 2018) LEAD-IN: A Finnish icebreaker has conducted an oil spill response exercise in the Baltic sea, testing a new in-built oil recovery system, a first ever for an icebreaker. STORYLINE: This is the Polaris. She can collect up to 1,400 cubic tons of oil in the harshest and icy weather conditions. The Polaris operates mainly in the Baltic sea, but can reach large parts of the Arctic Ocean during the summer months. Heading out of Helsinki harbour on a chilly autumn morning, the mission is to test new equipment and train sailors in the rapid deployment of oil containment booms. The highly automated system opens hatches on each side of the vessel from which inflatable barriers are deployed. By positioning the vessel in the path of an oil spill, these booms can trap pollutants, pushing them into hull of the ship. A skimmer with brushes then separates seawater from the oil which is stored in large tanks. Polaris' icebreaking capabilities means the vessel can intervene in oil spills in ice infested waters, but the cold brings another set of problems: oil gets thicker in cold temperatures. "It's unique because you can also collect oil in cold weather," says Lars Snellman from the company Lamor which developed the system. "There is heating in the system so it's easy to pump oil with very high viscosity." Maritime traffic in the Gulf of Finland is among the densest in Europe. Russian oil flows westwards, while container and passenger traffic sails between Helsinki and Tallinn. "There is always the possibility of a collision, due to wind, due to fog," warns Pasi Jarvelin, the Master of Polaris. "In the wintertime, if the Gulf of Finland is frozen, it has to be an icebreaker to go through the ice to a position where we have the oil spill." The ship's operator, Arctia Ltd is a Finnish government-owned enterprise. It hopes Baltic expertise in both icebreaking and oil spill response will inform and educate decisions made much further north. Shipping in the Arctic is increasing for many reasons. Tourism is one, but there is also trade and there's great interest in the untapped deposits of minerals and fossil fuels. Increases in traffic add to the potential for oil spills from platforms and vessels operating in remote locations. It is a major cause for concern among environmentalists, especially since the 1989 Exxon Valdex disaster off Alaska killed a quarter of a million seabirds, as well as hundreds of seals and sea otters. Vladimir Putin recently announced plans to increase traffic on the Northern sea route connecting Asia to Europe via the Arctic from 10 million tons today to 80 million tons within 10 years. "The use of the icebreakers for oil spill response is of course very feasible in the arctic areas as well," says Tero Vauraste, CEO of Arctia Ltd., "and it's becoming more and more important because of the fact that traffic is going to increase." Operating in the Arctic Ocean remains challenging and dangerous. Vessels face high risks of running aground in waters which are still poorly charted, and while thick ice may be retreating, ice flows still present a serious threat to shipping. The World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) warns that oil spill response capabilities in the Arctic remain very limited and no comprehensive assessment of the risks has been conducted.

Leaders in bid to save the Baltic Sea
Political leaders, NGOs and scientific elites from the nine Baltic countries are meeting on Wednesday in Finland's capital Helsinki to take part in a Baltic Sea Action Summit on cleaning up one of the world's most polluted and poisonous seas. The sea was used to dump thousands of World War Two planes, chemical weapons and even dead bodies. The World Water Forum says all the Baltic states "are sinners" for dumping over the years tons of sewage and agricultural waste into the sea. As a result, large areas of the body of water are suffering from eutrophication or lack of oxygen. Stephen Cole reports. [February 10, 2010]

Wide shot of the bay with with Faro bridge 6. Various of oil in the water and along the shoreline 7. Cutaway of birds in the water 8. Various close ups of the oil STORYLINE: Coastguard and environmental protection ships from Denmark, Sweden and Germany are trying to contain several oil slicks which are threatening the Danish coast. It's believed to have been the biggest oil spill off Denmark. The incident happened on Wednesday before midnight when an oil tanker carrying 33,000 tons (36,300 short tons) of fuel oil collided with a freighter in international waters between eastern Denmark and northwest Germany. The cause of the collision was not immediately clear. The work of the emergency teams has been hampered by bad weather and the fact that the heavy heating oil is suspended just below the sea's surface. Floating barriers are being used to try to keep the pollution from the coastline. Winds as strong as 72 kilometres an hour have broken the leaking oil into dozens of slicks that are heading toward the Danish islands south of Copenhagen. Several birds coated in oil were spotted on the beaches of the Bogoe island, including ducks.

Farming for sustainable futures -- a Baltic tale
http://www.sei-international.org/ The film Farming for sustainable futures -- a Baltic tale builds on the work under COMPASS and demonstrates the complex reality of how to address eutrophication in the Baltic Sea. This film is envisioned to trigger a discussion on appropriate pathways for the Baltic Sea Region. The Baltic Sea is a common resource for the nine riparian countries in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) and diffuse agricultural pollution do not respect national borders. Each country depends on the actions of other countries to achieve targets for environmental sustainability, human health, economic viability and social equity. However, despite the European ambition of improving regional cohesion, in the current policy environment it is frequently more advantageous for countries to pursue national priorities in many cases at the cost of regional sustainability and cooperation. Even within each country, it is fraught with difficulty to achieve greater coherence between sectoral goals and measures, for instance between the environmental (conservation) and agricultural (production) sectors. This in turn makes it difficult to achieve win-win situations for farmers, industry, and the wider public. This film is part of Baltic COMPASS, a project funded by the EU Baltic Sea Region Programme that aims to increase the legitimacy of adaptive governance processes in integrated agricultural-environmental policy development and deepen that integration in the Baltic Sea Region.

Water is not only the basic condition of life as we know it but also the product of life, establishing close relations between micro and macro scales of our habitat. The project was born as an answer to the state of ecological emergency of our natural environment due to the increase of pollution and the lack of effective local and global environmental management. This situation is caused not only by political and economical factors but also because of the lack of wider knowledge and awareness of consequences of our past and current activities. The endanger of the Baltic Sea can serve as our local example; after the II World War it became a depository of tones of chemical weapon. The leakage of only 6% of from corroded barrels will cause the extinction of all the marine life for next 100 years. animacja (http://gospodarka.gazeta.pl/gospodarka/1,58480,4182918.html), Http://ciekawe.onet.pl/wokolnas/tykajaca-bomba-na-dnie-baltyku,1,4875000,artykul.html More and more we are aware that the environment we live in and we are part of, is a dynamic complex system based on interrelations.
