He is a professionally trained astrologer and apprentice to world class Evolutionary Astrologer: Steven Forrest. The map is handy as a reference, since there are enormous areas that usually receive so little attention elsewhere. My point is that the map is another symbol of the future Arctic.
Lessons must be learned from mistakes made in other parts of the world, to prevent disasters like the potential for the biggest oil spill ever. Published only a year ago, this book will be an important guide for those with interests in this northern region.

Aug 22, Steve rated it really liked it. Struzik's book is a fascinating look at a world so few of us know. He describes developments in the Arctic with a harrowing clarity and his condemnation of the Harper government's inaction is damning.

Even though he presents the horrors that climate change will wreak and is already wreaking on the flora, fauna, and people living in the region, he is emphatic in continually stressing that extinctions have happened quite often in the region, and it has changed dramatically before. It's not really a book about the "Future Arctic" since Struzik focuses on the present dangers much more than what the future will look like. It's more a book about the fact that the Arctic is changing dramatically and we will have to wait and see just by how much.
The one odd stylistic choice is the frequent repetition of similar data and phrasing between chapters. It almost feels as though the book were stitched together from various articles published at different times. But I don't think it detracts from the book's point at all, it's just a bit jarring at times. The book is a breezy and terrifying read, but in the end it's surprisingly hopeful. The resiliency of life is a big theme, and while you're depressed at the destruction humanity has wrought, you're amazed too to watch the profound changes that the region is making to try to adapt at a breakneck speed.

While some evidence may be hard to come by for the current state of the world, what is happening in the Arctic is undeniable fact melting before our very eyes. Edward Struzik is a hardcore explorer and journalist who has traveled across the limits of the Arctic and in Future Arctic paints a very moving picture about where it is headed. Along with plenty of research about the state of things, Struzik also provides lots of anecdotal evidence from the native peoples of the region recounting how their world has changed.
The author even travels far into the past to a time when the region was warmer and how its flora and fauna fared. Future Arctic is certainly bleak at points, but also enlightening as Struzik analyzes various possibilities about how the Arctic will appear transformed by climate change and what it means for the rest of the growingly fragile planet.

It's definitely not my typical genre but I thought I'd give it a whirl. Struzik writes with too much detail and not enough story. It's clear he had so many amazing experiences through his travels across the Arctic but he only briefly mentions them. Some examples: he's caught in a dangerous storm in the middle of a lake, his boat starts sinking in the middle of an expedition, he meets incredible vibrant characters who live unique lives, and he en I have to admit, this book is hard to get through. Some examples: he's caught in a dangerous storm in the middle of a lake, his boat starts sinking in the middle of an expedition, he meets incredible vibrant characters who live unique lives, and he encounters new people and cultures.

However, he leaves these stories hanging and doesn't tie up the loose ends. Instead of using these stories to propel his book they only serve to slow things down. If he used these stories to guide his narrative rather than insert them as afterthoughts to the numbers and an obvious agenda, I think I would have liked this book more.

He's better with the biology than the politics, since the later chapters dissolve into a blizzard of treaty names and interest books. However, this is a sobering book that points out that we are long past preventing the current wave of climate change, and now have to give serious thought about how to manage it.

The future of the Artic is in danger. The ice is melting and species of some birds, bears and other animals could go extinct if they lose their ice. This change will affect the whole world also and some towns on the seaboards will be gone, overtaken by water.
But no on listens to this information or really cares except us citizens.

The celebrity interior designer and author, launched My Home In Sight to empower people living with wet AMD, in collaboration with Novartis and patient advocacy groups. The program information is by no means limited to such a specific audience and offers benefit to a much broader scope of low vision patients. The program highlights 5 key principles that can help create a home environment that is not just easier on the eyes, but also safer and more comfortable.
Nate reminds us how important it is to love our home, and making it more accessible for vision loss does not require sacrificing style.
