Inuit leader: stop expansion of Stansted airport - Independent
"The Inuit politician, who is the head of Greenland's indigenous population and the former president of the Inuit Circumpolar Council, told The Independent: "When I was a boy in north Greenland, the sea ice formed in November. Now we don't see it for months after that. All our certainties are being changed by global warming, from the location of hunting grounds to the loss of our homes to the rising sea.
"This is caused by pollution from the South. There is now a connection between our backyard and your backyard and we would like to you to question some points of your lifestyle such as flying and creating more emissions.
"That is why Stansted is important. Getting on a plane in England for a cheap holiday is felt here on the ice today and for you tomorrow. We are not even 160,000 people but global warming is not just threatened polar bears and melting ice. It is about our right to a viable existence."
Inuit communities are already having to deal with the reality of global warming. In written evidence to the Stansted inquiry before he attends in person at the end of July, Mr Lynge, who was invited to appear by the Stop Stansted Expansion group, details how one Inuit village in Alaska has already lost 10 homes to the encroaching sea, which has moved 300ft inland since 2000. Engineers predict all 600 houses face being swallowed by 2050."
