It seems the Inuit elders are also witnessing strange and unfathomable weather up there in the North.
The elders talk about how their world has changed, how it was then and how it is now.
It is a worrying picture, a picture of melting glaciers and thinning or disappearing sea ice.
Seals with burns on their coats and covered with sores and a thinner hide, the Seal skin has deteriorated and while scientists maintain man made pollution is contributing to climate change the elders are convinced something much much bigger is going on!
Astonishingly what the elders are saying is global warming is not the whole story…
The elders maintain the Sun doesn’t rise were it used too, they have longer day light to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before.
The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the same thing, their sky has changed.
The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic.
This sun not rising where it used to rise issue is something I am fully aware of.. I have also noted to friends and family my own personal confusion over that very issue, presenting a photo taken at one time years ago and comparing it to the position of the sun in the same place during the same season years later.
There are a variety of sources saying that this sun not rising issue is a myth and that the claims are easily debunked..
However, magnetic north is changing. Airports have had to re-calibrate their runways for global positioning.. and place that would usually get no sun in the summer time at my house were bright this year..
The elders mentioned in this article all think that the earth has tilted to the North..
We also know from science that magnetic north is shifting more than ever..
I know through my own personal observations that there seems to be a change, that the placement of the sun has gone to extreme angles compared to years previous..
And I also know what I read from science journals: That a pole flip could happen within the next 1000 years..
All that said.. does the sun rise and set where it should? I guess there’s peace of mind at least seeing the rise and set to begin with..
