Abstract Carson Fellow Ingo Heidbrink erforscht die Industrialisierung Grönlands und die Risiken, die damit einher gehen. Es sind neue, vor allem finanzielle Risiken, mit denen das Land konfrontiert wird. Seine Entwicklung hat Grönland dem Mineral Kryolith zu verdanken, welches zur Herstellung von Aluminium gebraucht wird und selten ist. Doch muss man vorsichtig sein, um der Natur nicht zu sehr zu schaden. Daher spezialisiert sich Carson Fellow Ingo Heidbrink auf die Geschichte der Meeresressourcen und der Arktis, sowie auf internationale Konflikte, die damit in Zusammenhang stehen.
Drawing from Greenland’s historical record and present-day state, Carson Fellow Ingo Heidbrink examines the country’s risk acceptance of industrialization. Composed largely of fisherman and hunters, Greenland’s economic success depends on the whims of nature; if an industrial gamble fails, a massive loss incurs for Greenland’s inhabitants. Heidbrink delves deeper into the causes of past risk acceptance and Greenland’s current environmental dealings with multi-national corporations. Dr. Heidbrink is a maritime historian and a professor of history at Old Dominion University in Virginia.
