Ice floes in the Arctic melt and break up into round blocks—a sign that spring has arrived in Nunavut, which means «our land» in the language of the Inuit. Whales and other marine animals can now make their way through the blocks of ice. This combination of archipelago, water, and ice has protected the Inuit civilization for some 5,000 years, across an area of 750,000 square miles (2 million km2). Generation after generation of Inuits have learned to read the ice, but their hunters are now faced with the increasing effects of global warming on their territory, and it is no longer safe for them to travel across the ice floes without information provided by satellite technology. Since 1960 the average thickness of ice in the Arctic has been reduced by half, and temperatures have risen by more than 36°F (20°C). «The Earth is literally changing beneath our feet,» said a member of the ICC (Inuit Circumpolar Conference) in 2003.
