Where climate change is turning life upside down

The small community of Thule, also called Qaanaaq, in Greenland is based on old hunting traditions. As the ice melts, their traditional way of life are threatened. At the same time, the small island of Tuvalu in the Pacific is about to disappear. Two very different communities with a close, dependent relationship with the sea now face an uncertain future as the vulnerable balance of nature is tipping.
