Markus Rex is a serious scientist who is on a unique mission to gather data and experience conditions in the Arctic Ocean by spending an entire year there, including purposely trapping his ship in the ice. Paul Boehmer's sonorous voice and deliberate pace match the scientist's seriousness of purpose. His delivery sounds a bit ponderous at the beginning, but Boehmer soon relaxes into the diary entry format with a more conversational style and varied pacing. Rex recounts polar bear encounters, crew efforts to present scientific findings in song and dance, and the difficulty of finding an ice floe thick enough to remain stable. The overarching sense of urgency for governments all over the world to take quick and significant action on climate change is loud and clear.
