GLOBAL WARMINGGlobal Warming affects canbe seen very clearly in theCanadian Arctic.-The temperature is rising almost doubleas fast compared to the rest of the world-Icecaps are melting almost twice as fastThis forces polar bears to live inland (there for no food)Walruses, Seals, Foxes are loosing there shelterCod, Char, Belugas are starvering because the algae thatused to live under the icecaps no longer is there HELP SAVE THE POLAR BEARS

How does the environmentaffect the people -Sewer pipes Are above ground because the ground underneath is perm-a frost -Transportation Because the ground is so hard and icy, dogsleds were used to get around and recently, so are snowmobiles -Diet Eat mostly meat because agriculture is impossible in the Canadian Arctic A lot of people get sick because the animals in the arctic carry toxic materials
