In remote Canada, villagers man climate’s front line (Tuktoyaktuk)

Associated Press – Caught between rising seas and land melting beneath their mukluk-shod feet, the villagers of Tuktoyaktuk are doing what anyone would do on this windy Arctic coastline. They’re building windmills. That’s wind-power turbines, to be exact – a token first try at “getting rid of this fossil fuel we’re using,’’ said Mayor Merven Gruben. It’s a token of irony, too: People little to blame, but feeling it most, are doing more to stop global warming than many of “you people in the south,’’ as Gruben calls the rest of us who fill the skies with greenhouse gases.
