The Daily News- Miner posted an article titled, “The indigenous Arctic: We are the edge.” The article reads in part as follows;
“Alaska just experienced the third consecutive hottest year on record. Because we are warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, Arctic sea ice is also melting faster than expected, causing an increase to sea-level rise. Our elders, with a skill base of traditional knowledge, hand in hand with conservation practices dating back thousands of years, witnessed these changes and began forecasting potential impacts back in the late 1960s. When communicated to scientists and policy shapers, their words landed as if they were dust or blown snow.
