Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says the key to dealing with climate change in the Arctic is to have “real conversations” with the Inuit peoples who live there.
But Sally Jewell, the U.S. secretary of the interior, has a much blunter assessment, arguing climate impacts are already underway, can’t be turned around and that moving some Arctic communities may be the only solution.
“We will have climate refugees,” Jewell said Thursday after meeting McKenna at the Museum of History across the Ottawa River from Parliament Hill.
