    Dear Mr. Goldthau,

    Al Jazeera’s flagship current affairs show Inside Story is discussing drilling in the Arctic on today’s show. We are looking not only at the impact the drilling will have on the area, but also at who owns the Arctic and to what extent are the different countries involved. We would very much like to invite you to join our guest panel and take part in the discussion.

    The TV interview is scheduled to be recorded at 15:40 Germany local time this afternoon and it would last half an hour. We have locally based studios that we can make arrangements with according to your location.

    I realize that it is very short notice now, but please do let me know if you would be at all interested and/or available to take part. We could even do it over Skype if it’s more convenient for you!

    I very much look forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks and kind regards,

    Hi Andreas,

    I’m a journalist for the American online magazine OZY ( — we’re a digital-only publication that partners with the likes of CNN, USAToday and NPR to tell stories that aren’t getting a lot of mainstream coverage in the US and we have about 20 million readers.

    I’d love to speak to one of your experts about new coal plants being built or planned in the Balkans, the Sostanj lignite power plant in Slovenia for example. I’d like to know why they think there has been an uptick in new coal developments and what effect they may have on the environment as well as these countries’ economic futures. I’m also interested in the upcoming talks on the Energy Community and whether there is any prospect for changing the treaty.

    My deadline for the piece is the end of day Friday, which I know is short notice and they must be very busy. But it would be great to speak before then. They can either send me a message with a time to call that would work for them (because of the time difference, early morning or late afternoon/night your time is best for me) or send me a few thoughts via email. Looking forward to speaking!
