The measures that can be taken to curb the increasing global warming will be discussed at the World Climate Conference in Glasgow. ZDF reports on it in current programs and offers a wide range of background information on the most important questions about climate change and climate research – from explanatory rooms in the “Weather” to the “ClimateRadar” in the online news service ZDFheute. As part of the focus on climate, ZDF will broadcast the first of two “Long Nights” for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference on the night of Wednesday, November 3rd to Thursday, November 4th, 2021, from 1.00 am to 3.45 am, with the “Planet e.” – Documentaries “USA and Climate Protection – Joe Biden’s Fight Against Global Warming” and “Lawsuit, Judgment, Climate Protection – How Courts Advance Politics”. Before that, the 43-minute “Auslandsjournal – die doku: In the footsteps of the environmental mafia” can be seen on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, 10.15 p.m. on ZDF. The film by Johan von Mirbach and Jan-Philipp Scholz will be available from Wednesday, November 3, 2021, 6 p.m. in the ZDFmediathek.

In this documentation, the “Auslandsjournal” uncovered cases in which unscrupulous traders damage the environment: illegal loggers in Ukrainian forests, criminal fishermen in the Atlantic off Ghana, exploitative big cat dealers with baby tigers in the USA. In many cases, consumers no longer know: are they sitting on chairs made from illegally felled wood or are they eating fish caught by Mafia networks? The authors of the “Auslandsjournal” document go on the trail of the environmental mafia in the Ukraine, Ghana and the USA and shed light on a system of corruption, money laundering and intimidation.

Extreme weather, forest fires and rising sea levels are a danger to humans and animals. On Saturday, November 6th, 2021, 9:55 am, “PUR +” asks ZDF: How can global warming be stopped? Under the title “Save the climate – now!” the discovery magazine is doing a “PUR +” experiment with a family with Eric Mayer: How can lifestyle habits that cause a lot of greenhouse gases be changed – traveling, mobility, shopping, eating meat? How much CO2 can you save? The broadcast is already available in the ZDFmediathek.

A horror scenario in climate change: Permafrost soils are gradually thawing and releasing millions of tons of methane. But researchers say: The big melt also opens up opportunities. On Sunday, November 7th, 2021, 4:30 pm, the “planet e.” documentation “When the cold steppe thaws – New opportunities for agriculture” will show innovative cultivation possibilities in former permafrost areas. The film by Patrick Zeilhofer and Volker Wasmuth will be available from Friday, November 5, 2021, 10:00 a.m. in the ZDFmediathek.

ZDF will broadcast the second long night of the UN Climate Change Conference on Friday, November 12, 2021, 1:15 am to 3:30 am, including the “ZDFzeit” documentary “Germany and Climate Change – The Facts of Harald Lesch”.
