THE FAMILY AT THE END OF THE WORLD
Our world is changing faster than any time since the arrival of humans on this planet. And nowhere is that more evident than in the Arctic, where climate change is causing temperatures to soar. In the last four decades temperatures have risen by nearly five degrees Celsius and the once-ubiquitous snow and ice is now disappearing. This "new Arctic" holds both challenges and opportunities for its residents. Karina and Martin Bernlow are examples: they moved their family of six to a house at the very end of the road at the world’s northernmost (and fastest warming) town, Longyearbyen, on the remote island of Svalbard. Like many Arctic residents, they are figuring out how and if they can adapt to survive.
