    Great report,worrying story.
    I’ve also talked to the Inupiat in Alaska and Greenlanders about how climate change is endangering their traditional lifestyles. Things are changing so fast in the Arctic it is almost impossible for them to adapt fast enough.
    Thanks for drawing attention to this.
