Don’t f*ck with Eskimos

You know, people that live in the Arctic are tough as nails. Turns out, they’re tired of being pushed around and being told they’d better learn how to grow corn… (actually, I made up the part about the corn…)

People living in the Arctic have filed a legal petition against the US government, saying its climate change policies violate human rights.

The Inuit Circumpolar Conference (ICC) claims the US is failing to control emissions of greenhouse gases, damaging livelihoods in the Arctic.
Its petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights demands that the US limits its emissions.
Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at about twice the global average.

More from the unusual article can be found on the BBC site, and it does make for an interesting read. It’s certainly more of a case than the hot-coffee-danger cases that plagued fast food joints like McDonald’s over the past few years…

Go Inuit!

  1. I’m just waiting for Bush to do a “let’s go whaling with the little people” tour to try to mend fences.
