Geology: People

We are shaped by our environment—and we shape our environment. Our clothing, languages, and customs are all linked to our sense of place. But as we live in a place we change it, and these changes, in turn, influence our culture. This slow flux has taken place throughout human civilization, but since the Industrial Revolution change has accelerated. Today, earth’s climate is changing rapidly, in turn changing places and forcing cultures to adjust expeditiously—as is seen in Greenland, or Kalaallit Nuunaat. An ice cap covers more than 80 percent of Greenland, the world’s biggest island, and sea ice surrounds it for most of any year. These conditions, upon which the people of Greenland have relied and which have shaped their culture, are swiftly changing. Chat topic: The Human Connection
