The disappearing world of the last of the Arctic hunters
In the first of a series of dispatches, Stephen Pax Leonard reports on the unique culture of the Inughuit as the sea ice that has supported their ancient way of life melts beneath them
Doomed, I tell you, doomed. If it isn't the ice disappearing it is the the US Air Force dropping hydrogen bombs, or strict hunting quotas, or the abandonment of Greenland's One Price Policy...
"It is late September in the High Arctic, the outside temperature is -3C and there is little hope of the sea ice forming any time soon."
Except it has been reforming at a record rate.
Do you know how bad it is?
Global warming has a human cost too, tearing families apart. To visit their Canadian relatives, these people would now have to fly to Copenhagen 4,000km away then across the Atlantic to Montreal and up from there.
