Climate Change and Landscape change

Another Climate Change related post.

Permafrost is thawing around the Arctic.
This interactive website explores the impact of this on the landscape, and on the people who live within it.

Excellent work by the Toronto Star.



It includes a quote by Sheila Watt-Cloutier, an Inuit environmental, cultural and human rights advocate and author of the book 'The Right to be Cold', which I have a copy of, and is excellent.

"Our identity is strongly linked to the ice, cold and snow. Our right to hunt, our right to health, our right to educate our children, our right to safety and security … in fact, all of our human rights as Indigenous peoples would be minimised and destroyed by climate change.”

Here's Sheila talking about this aspect of Inuit life.
