The Arctic is changing fast and the outcomes are unknown. Throughout human history the Arctic has represented the cold untouched wilderness and ice. But by 2040 we will be facing a new version of the frozen north as there will be no summer sea ice in the Arctic with the exception of the “last ice area,” north of Greenland and Ellesmere Island in Nunavut. The loss of the ice is predicted with unprecedented certainty but the effects on wildlife, fauna, Inuit people and the far-reaching global effects of a warmer Arctic are yet to be understood.
