Two places on the edges of this earth make the headlines because of climate change: Thule in Greenland and Tuvalu in the Pacific are both threatened by the rising sea levels. The two places are intimately related: whilst in Thule the ice is retreating ever further and turning into seawater, in Tuvalu sea level is perpetually rising. Although for us global warming happens almost only in the media, the entire existence of the peoples of Thule and Tuvalu has entirely changed. A touching portrait of people at two distant corners of the world, sharing an unknowable and life-changing fate.
