Film Discussion: Melting Ice – the Future of the Arctic
January 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library present a discussion on the documentary “Melting Ice – the Future of the Arctic” on Thursday, January 28 at 4pm via Zoom.
“Climate change in the Arctic is fueling not only fear, but also hope. Sea levels will rise and flood many regions. But the melting ice will also expose new land with reserves of oil, gas and minerals. New sea routes are also emerging.
The melting of the ice in the far north has given reason for great optimism, as newly-found mineral resources promise the Inuit a better life. But international corporations and self-proclaimed ‘partners’ such as China also have their eye on the treasures of the Arctic. Some even dream of a polar Silk Road. As large corporations position themselves to exploit the treasures of the far north, the indigenous people, the Inuit, are fighting for their independence.”
