The “North This Week”: CBC Podcast Includes Interview with Sheila Watt-Cloutier
by admin ~ February 10th, 2007
The CBC airs an interview with Inuit leader and activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier, who was recently nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore, and has worked on several international forums to raise awareness for global climate change, and its impact on Inuit subsistence, health, culture, and human rights. Challenging the assumption that the Inuit live in a remote and globally distant region, she highlights the interconnectedness of world events and industrial energy production, and speaks about the human cost of climate change and the failure to implement international treaties on greenhouse gas emissions. Also included in the broadcast is an interview with Theo Ikummaq (an Inuit hunter and expedition member of Baffin Island 2007, and contributor to the BBC news story “Hunting in the Arctic Wilderness” about climate change and Inuit subsistence).
