Extractions: We, the Inuit people of the Arctic, are a marine and land- based people. We still rely upon many animal species to support our age-old hunting, fishing, trapping and gathering economy. But many Inuit now use computers and invest in stocks and bonds over the internet. We welcome sustainable development of the Arctics resources. But we maintain our reverence for Nature and a commitment to treat it with respect.

Extractions: Rivers in the Southern Ocean One of the main characteristics of the Southern Ocean resides in the fact that it is a major source of cold water production (by the formation of some 20 million square kilometres of ice floe per year) and therefore The cold and dense water of the Antarctic - the " Antarctic Bottom Water " - is not the only water travelling in the oceans of the world. Above the deep layers that circulate at a depth of more than 4,000 metres, oceanographic soundings have found "deep circumpolar water" at a depth of less than 3,000 metres regulating the movements of the Southern Ocean. This a huge (very saline) water mass formed in the high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere that wends its way towards the south. The surfacing of this warmer northern water (its temperature is on average 2 to 3°C higher than the cold water at the bottom) in the Antarctic polar regions is helped by the meeting of the westerly and easterly winds - the zone of Antarctic divergence - which often force the surface Antarctic water to divide in two, one part going northwards and the other towards the coasts. This perpetual toing and froing of water coming from different horizons and meeting in the Antarctic Ocean contributes, rather like the circulation of the atmospheric air mass, to the planet's climatic equilibrium.

Extractions: Global Issues Impacts of Climate Change - IPCC's 2001 Report T he most authoritative body studying climate change is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) set up in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environmental Programme. Its role is to assess the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant to the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change. T he IPCC's latest report, Climate Change 2001: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability , was released on 22 January 2001. There are some key findings: th century Global average sea level is projected to rise by 0.09m to 0.88 m by 2100 "These projects indicate that the warming would vary from region to region, and be accompanied by increases and decreases in precipitation. In addition, there would be changes in the variability of climate, and changes in the frequency and intensity of some extreme climate phenomena." IPCC, 2001
