Profits Won't Matter if we don’t have a climate we can live in

Profits Won't Matter if we don’t have a climate we can live in | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

If humanity does not opt for integrity we are through completely. It is absolutely touch and go. Money cannot buy anyone a ticket off this rock we call home when it becomes uninhabitable in the very near-term. Why is that concept so lost on those who believe making money is more important than taking care of our home?

The Arctic Institute - Center for Circumpolar Security Studies: by Moki Kokoris

[excerpt]

To the Inuit, the ice is the essence of their culture and character, and they depend on it for their survival. They understand its nature, how it moves, how it retreats and expands, and it is those seasonal changes that define the Inuit spirit. To quote renowned author, Gretel Ehrlich, who lived among them for many years, “They have no illusions of permanence. There is no time for regret. Despair is a sin against imagination.”

Drawing on collective experience, observation and knowledge handed down from one generation to the next, the indigenous peoples who inhabit the territories across the Arctic are able to not only recognize subtle changes in their environment, but they can offer vital insights into the causes.
