The Arctic is changing. There really is no debate about that.

It’s getting warmer each year leading to thinning ice, thawing permafrost and changes to ways of life that have existed for generations.
As if that’s not enough, it’s still among the coldest spots on the planet. And it’s about to enter a phase where it will be dark 24 hours a day, for more than three months.
So what does it take to live above the Arctic Circle?

CCTV America’s Sean Callebs travels to a remote part of Canada for our continuing series: “On Thin Ice.”
