Most of us are familiar with the term ‘climate change’, and see it to some extent as a reality of the world today. For many of us it’s something that we simply see in the news, with environmental conditions setting new records in faraway nations: “the warmest”, “the wettest”, “the driest”. But in some places climate change is an undeniable fact of everyday life. One of these places is Greenland.
