Many people think climate change mainly means warmer temperatures. But temperature rise is only the beginning of the story. Because the Earth is a system, where everything is connected, changes in one area can influence changes in all others. The consequences of climate change now include, among others, intense droughts, water scarcity, severe fires, rising sea levels, flooding, melting polar ice, catastrophic storms, and declining biodiversity.
In this podcast, Cultural Survival's Avexnim Cojti spoke to Jimmy Aqjagnayuq Ullikatalik (Inuit) to find out how climate change impacts his territory in Nunavut.
Produced by Avexnim Cojti (Maya Ki'che) and Shaldon Ferris (Khoisan)
