Regardless of underlying causes, the Arctic is undergoing a period of significant change that is likely to continue well into the next century, if not longer, and affect all sectors of the circumpolar North. Climate change significantly impacts the traditional harvesting activities of indigenous peoples. As a result, the livelihoods connected with hunting, fishing and herding are under threat with implications on their economy, society, culture and health.
Eventually, the survival of many groups as distinctive peoples is endangered.
What happens in the Arctic affects all of us. It's not that far. It's not unimportant. And it's so so real, it should actually keep us up at night.
