Exploring the Weather at Clyde River


Inuit have noted many changes in weather over the past fewdecades. Among other things, they report that the weather is harder to predict than it used to be. This complaint echoes observations I’ve heard from Alaska (where I live), Canada’s western Arctic, Nunavut, Greenland, Scandinavia, and Russia. Something is undoubtedly going on. — Henry Huntington
