Book launch for Climate, Culture, Change

The book launch for Climate, Culture, Change: Inuit and Western Dialogues with a Warming North will be held this Thursday, March 3, 2011. The launch will be hosted by the Iris Speaker Series at York University in HNES 140 from 3:30 – 4:30pm.

In Climate, Culture, Change, author Timothy Leduc works to integrate the Inuit experience of climate change with western climate research. Considering alternative ways of thinking about climate change, Leduc sidelines the common debates on the validity of climate science and the economic viability of responding to climate change. Instead, he approaches current issues such as polar bear decline from both an Inuit and western viewpoint to create a more organic understanding of what is happening in the north.

  1. Global climate warming is a fact.

    I was surfing on the internet the other day, and I’ve also found a mention of a great 3D documentary project about Johnny May, the Inuit aviator, on a website called touscoprod. He has been flying over the arctic area for almost 40 years, and so witnessed the environmental change...

    This documentary project is quite new obviously, and you can become co-producer of the documentary and eventually be rewarded with some exclusive access to great contents and services (meeting with the director, previews, premiere tickets…). I’m in!

    If you feel as concerned as I do about global warming, do not hesitate to support it as well.
