Inuk activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier on the "right to be cold"

« It has to be very cold, freezing cold, for us to thrive. Not just survive, but thrive. » As the Arctic is warming up, this Inuk activist from Quebec is fighting for the "right to be cold" to be recognized. She tells Brut Nature why this rise in temperature is already impacting Inuits' everyday lives.

    It is not man if anything it is Mother Nature. Pure Propaganda. We will never be able to fix weather changes caused by Mother Nature.

    Denying that we have nothing to do with climate change is like saying the oceans r filthy, but we have. Nothing to do with it

    What do the very old Inuit people have to say about the Arctic warming? Have they experienced it before in their lifetimes?

    I hate to see people beg for more support money to preserve culture, when it is that same support money that has destroyed their culture.

    We all adapt to the weather and earths cycles. They are no different. We have been doing it for thousands of years. That's why we are still here.

    People do not believe weather is supposed to change and the earth changes right along as it has since creation. I'm more concerned about geoengineering and chemtrails and 5G.

    Global warming/Climate change is a scam. Climate change happens every 5000 to 6000 years. The Sahara Desert was once lush tropical forest. Petrified trees are still seen there. This is the biggest scam since the Y2K bug.

    What it means is, you must adapt just like you did to live in the cold.
