The Impact of Global Warming on Aboriginal People

Take away the forests, and forest cultures die: That's something that becomes painfully obvious when you look at a map of the world's disappearing forests, and a map of the world's dying languages. It's the same map. But the forests aren't all being lost to ill-considered clearcutting. In British Columbia, we've lost forests over an area the size of the United Kingdom to a beetle infestation, which is ravaging the countryside because the winters aren't cold enough anymore to keep them in check. British Columbia hasn't been this warm in 8,000 years.

I write about all this in today's Globe and Mail, here.
