  • at dinner. So I immersed myself in one of the surgeon's volumes from his fine Library of Imagination, and waited. I think the book was one of Mr. H. G. Wells', probably "The Sleeper Awakes," or some other of his brilliant fantasies and predictions, for I was in a mood conducive to belief in almost anything when, later, we sat down together across the table.

  • The Inuit people live in the arctic region of North America. They are people confined for months in shelters during the long Arctic winter, when it is dark both day and night. With vast stretches of snow and ice reaching to the horizon in every direction, the men would go hunting on long treks alone, not returning home for days or weeks.

Unseen and untrodden under their spotless mantle of ice the rigid polar regions slept the profound sleep of death from the earliest dawn of time. Wrapped in his white shroud, the mighty giant stretched his clammy ice-limbs abroad, and dreamed his age-long dreams. Ages passed--deep was the silence....

  • The annual summer warming of the Arctic in 2008 was watched closely by an army of expert observers and other interested parties around the world. Organisations such as the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)3 published neardaily updates on the state of the Arctic sea ice, which every year recedes from its winter maximum as the summer comes to the far north. The reason for this scrutiny was the record low level of Arctic sea ice extent observed in summer 2007, when an area of ice nearly the size of Alaska melted.
