I cover a great article that tells the story of how Inupiat communities are adapting to Climate Change in the Arctic by using various technologies that provide safer hunts and help build the proper infrastructure to the communities.
Above all, the article shows how the Inupiat people want to be respected and treated like others when companies and governments use their land to extract resources such as oil.

Dr. Edd Hind-Ozan joins me on the podcast today to discuss how some researchers are interacting with Indigenous groups when it comes to science and conservation projects. Dr. Natalie Ban was quoted as saying that she would not work with Indigenous groups unless she was requested by said group. An interesting approach to move away from parachute science.
I finish off the episode by discussing the suppression of science of NOAA by the Trump Administration. I discuss my experience when a similar scenario occurred at the Canadian Federal Government level when the HArper Administration suppressed science on everything ecological as it could interfere with Natural Resource Development.
Enjoy the Podcast!!!
