Greenland These children were kind enough to present a visiting stranger with big bouquets of bog cotton. But their future is uncertain. Arctic land is buckling under roads and houses as permafrost melts, while erosion from open seas is washing villages away. They will have a better future if we urgently tackle climate change. That is where Xconomy and its readers have their connection to the Arctic. You are the people who can help develop the technology that will slash greenhouse gas emissions cost effectively. The Arctic and the world need you.

    Yawn. Another NON scientific warmist attempt to evangelize….

    The pictures are wonderful though….

  • Too bad

    What a shame you weren’t around as the Ice Age (or the more recent Little Ice Age) ended. You could have rung the global warming alarms and ensured that nothing happened to change the Ice Age climate. Come to think of it, you would have been useful during the entire 4.5 billion years of Earth’s climate change history. What a shame, indeed.
