Global Warming - Baffin Island 2006

Inuit See Signs In Arctic Thaw
The Washington Post, March 22, 2006; Page A01

This is another front page article - finally, proof that it is too late

Let's try a different spin

Unfortunately, this is a real scare article with no useful data. Yes, this is the warmest winter since records started being kept in 1948 ... so what, Europe is undergoing the coldest winter on record (funny, I keep hearing this but I can't find a good reference).

It seems that the real story is that the Inuit used to be a nomadic culture. The photograph in the article shows homes made of brick and wood with gabled roofs. The real problem is that the Inuit have chosen to build a fixed town and are no longer able to move with the weather. So, I claim that these people should not be blaming climate changes for destroying their culture - they have done it themselves.
