Melting glaciers, fear of lack of water and food. Greenlanders are worried about the consequences of the climate crisis. "You usually only hear about global warming, but here you can actually see it happening before your eyes," said an island researcher. "We need to wake up and take this seriously because what is happening in Greenland is the key to disrupting the global water cycle."
Climate change in the Arctic is one of the most accelerated in the world. The impact this has on the indigenous people of Greenland (the Greenlandic Inuit), who fear for the source of their food and drink due to the melting of glaciers, which has devastating consequences for the world as well.
The sound of marine glaciers crashing into the turquoise seas of eastern Greenland is the sound of one of Earth's most important ecosystems, which are on the verge of collapse. When the ice melts, the villagers of Ittoqqortoormiit – home to one of the last Inuit hunting communities – worry about where they will get water.
