The front line of climate change: Alaska village must relocate as Arctic sea ice thins

Posted by ShadowDarkFyre Erebus Olorin Arthur Pendragon Daeron on 25 February, 2015 at 20:20

 

Climate change is forcing an isolated Alaskan village, roughly 80 miles above the Arctic Circle, to relocate.

The very existence of Kivalina, a town with about 400 residents on a tiny barrier island off Alaska's northwest coast, is under threat as Arctic sea ice continues to melt into the surrounding Chukchi Sea.

Now the whaling community needs to figure out where to move the town and how to pay for it, after several previous attempts failed. It’s a dilemma that could become more common as global warming continues, scientists warn.
