“Inuit are the original Arctic scientists. We experiment by testing the sea ice thickness. We observe the environment by checking the weather. And we repeat it to make sure it won’t kill us. Our survival has relied on these techniques for a long time.”

This was his message for hundreds of Arctic researchers at the ArcticNet conference in Vancouver.
