Through interviews and first-hand accounts, a veteran Canadian journalist explores climate change in the Arctic and what it means for the rest of the world.
In one hundred years, or even fifty, the Arctic will look dramatically different than it does today. While these changes may seem remote, they will have a profound impact on a host of global issues, from international politics to animal migrations. In Future Arctic, journalist and explorer Edward Struzik offers a clear-eyed look at the rapidly shifting dynamics in the Arctic region, a harbinger of changes that will reverberate throughout our entire world. A unique combination of extensive on-the-ground research, compelling storytelling, and policy analysis, Future Arctic offers a new look at the changes occurring in this remote, mysterious region and their far-reaching effects.
Edward Struzik is an award-winning writer and photographer. A fellow at the School of Policy Studies at the Queen’s Institute for Energy and Environmental Policy at Queen University in Kingston, his numerous accolades include the prestigious Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy and the Sir Sandford Fleming Medal, awarded for outstanding contributions to the understanding of science.
