The Progressive reports on the realities of global warming in areas close to the Arctic Circle. The story describes "the warmest summer anyone ... can remember" in Iqaluit, capital of the new semi-sovereign Inuit nation of Nunavit in the Canadian Arctic. "A world based on ice and snow is melting now...," reports the magazine. The story reveals that the changes are menacing to the local population, since some houses have eroded into the sea, and "food sources are getting farther and farther away."
