i don't need to tell people here in alaska what's happened. over the past few years i've been trying to make the rest of the country more aware. of a changing climate where you're already living and. following permafrost that threatens homes and infrastructure faster glacier melt rising seas melting sea ice that contributes to some of the fastest coastal erosion in the world and i've talked to folks whose villages are literally in danger of slipping away. and for many of those alaskans it's no longer a question of if they're going to relocate but when.
and my grandfather. used to say his new top will become one big. salary in 9 and. the river around us in one not high when it comes in. it's like this one big island surrounded by the water. feel like it's getting danger danger every time it gets close. to us who knowns this one is one big village it's can come out snap. to swear on the permafrost are on the permafrost and this new top gets it's
when i got here 10 years ago the people were saying. move within 4 years. and that was and this is a statement i have come to know you know the shore legros is going to tell us 3 years to. think. not to bug out to look at hardly needs to take a making road. remember that movie tom cruise and they're renovating a house the money they would ask the. contractor how large is it going to take 2 weeks and so it always means weird that because of the statements hours 2 weeks carrots 4 years. i would like will move across the river are because it's higher ground and i think
people who are thinking imports they can hear that it floods here in the fall people who need to be prepared and there was food and by some conflict. not a safe place. 2 alone when it was both patrols i am 19 years old and i am from a small village called new talk when i go to a school that has 137 student i'm reading up a lot of bills trying to move because of climate change the talk is small pleased to time's up. 350 people and we are trying to move to
a place called moscow with. miles our new target. that. i have been in a tug basically all my life and it has always been the same every year we lose a number of feet of land each year what is not the same it shares the extent of the euros and because the weather isn't the same each year sometimes it curb bridge with us but most of time it goes. into doesn't do last 150 feet of land from water washing the wheel and the nurse on to the water's about 100 yards we are going to have a disaster if we don't move. and we need to act as soon as possible before the water just horse or it will lead us like cookie monster eating cookies.
all alone just fall down and. cannot pick up. i strongly believe we can do this but we will need help this place is very important to us because how much hunting we do how much we move around a whole lot but the hardest thing we have to 1st is having no running water or us or surely we hunted buckets was which is a 5 gallon bucket for human waste literally dump it down into the water when it is 4. according to the government it's about $230000000.00 climate change that like playing chess in a test checkmate us. please we need to make a move because we have the possible to room i'd lose this battle. we'll just want to sit. just like everyone else and just. nothing over who was the.
these communities were told that you have to now live so regardless if your main camp which would probably year which are camp is the most prominent structure you have you can't go back there after you have to relocate your family here. they were not a one location people they were migratory and. in their way they were able to keep them there was to and set their children off to boarding school if they didn't live near the school so the challenge began in that initial contact. i think were a part of america 1st for murmur from across. the world were. you
know when you go over the layers of. what started cox problem there was a bar. in 1000 fifties i was bringing the school so i took. the parts. of. the corner of our floor near. the wrong side of her. on this. road. the school over in the north for school. here started. hard to understand what psychological impacts where and they said you no longer could do that to that and if you don't come here are taking your
children so i would think that. and i know they talk about generational trauma and when you have been doing this for 15000 years and then somebody puts a stop on it and the consequences are what we have to. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. humanity has never seen such strange natural phenomena before coming to this
appearing in the peninsula. one after another. love never dull to feel forgotten you've had your cheek to get your foot you know whom does love with those images you want to hear. this one appeared in 2020. how often and where will new crisis appeal was a discussion of how dangerous own day for human the slum only it is to build 18th and 2021 russian scientists came quite close to working on what's going on. they built a full scale 3 d. model of the black hole. show it's same wrong but all rolls just don't hold. any
beliefs yet to shape out this day become educated and gain from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart when she's to look for common ground. in the 1920 s. and thirty's several 100 african-americans moved to the soviet union and many of their descendants still live in russia. again at the most because they know no rush but us throw up at us stuff yes it got worse are going things. back home but i can merican suffered from racism and a complete lack of prospects. is that not the smug the real. one by elsa store or by doing. so they decided to leave everything behind and start a new life in
a country about which they knew almost nothing at all some of the rear troops who were through during the night. found great crowds. to move a few you're going to go through you and now almost a 100 years later the history is repeating itself my great grandfather george time i went through russia. probably the worst. to go anywhere why not me. what if i come here. problem drugs don't always come from unscrupulous dealers but from pharmacies to in every state in the united states we see me very sharp increase in the number of people seeking treatment for addiction to prescription opioids invaded america under the banner of medicine he persisted with the pain but instead of trying to
wean him off though she just goes after dose after dose after dose and really became his drug dealer so who's to blame patients doctors manufacturers all the governments of. thank you. for. that for us this down now what is happening into the permafrost to do now to tell to you know they did it because it's melting it causes
a religion so how many people have gone and walked along the edge of the river. lots of people you wish know full well i'll be happy because that's where you guys don't your honey but it's it you know but if you do walk along there by what's happening to all of the shoreline it's going to be disappearing into my class last semester in the fall we went out there and we measured how much the religion was how much you think we lost last year he. we lost about 35 feet and sometimes i wish to close you were close 35 feet of ground in just about 3 months while we were measuring that it is fast and that means the river is 35 feet closer to the town and then left and it was the year before so you guys think that the river is going yes.
it's one thing to say the river is going to move you but this prompted a whole whole bunch of things this village is completely divided and there's just no way around you know to travel councils families don't talk to each other. just all kinds of issues that are. prompted by this river here moving in and rooting their communities. in the. us. the snow groups are from outside the
ice far from the community they are not urgently from. troubled ministers actually 1st cousins tom and 1st because it's a tradition versus you know the new prostitution or majority way of thinking so you have that tremendous divide different philosophies together and stanley represents one side and tom represents you know. my name is only tom i'm the tribal minister for new produce and colmes recently i was selected to be a tribal at nish. ward and you will it's schoolteaching new into it there was a election dispute. in october a tall. the new car from council. somebody who works there. said we've never had to. hide
a while. and it's an accident yes you were being accused of not having it us 8 to 9 years of election when we moved in we had election all these years i know it was coming up. and some of the smarter words began following the money. and realizing some of the money's not accounted for while they actually suspended the elections once they suspended the elections and there was a feeling that the community was being left out of the process yeah they were scheduled to leave in 2012. but through the division and the infighting and some of the you know bureaucratic issues stalled as it stands now the federal government cannot. contract with either group so what they did was they basically took the contract out of the.
it's a shack when it comes down to some 3rd world shack it's basically. a last resort for people who want to live in really tough. going from. is created a lot of problems health what is a no we've been to the clinic several times in our family structure really small there's this interior and everything else is kind of one ramp through the village and at certain times for nor want to. call it. talks been moving for the last 10 years
it's a stalled move. the frustration levels fairly high. you wonder if they're doing this on purpose. i mean really when you come down to it this could be a foreign totally foreign country ignored by any infrastructure all who live in the united states number just. there's no running water. so. it's a chronic. bush is really not for everybody. because a lot of teachers come on 12 years and they leave they don't never studied. and i guess it's just a culture shock to. we came in 2000 some 2008.
year career since. those move in the village then. everybody good smile if you could might see the water from my house to then. could look out like we look out now you could see the the water. now. it's close we can see the ways bussin over the land when it when he gets roast. before the ice up. we can see the land working away. back home they have these here we have hurricanes they are already and help people move and do whatever they want to do is just saying like i just taken forever i mean you almost begin to go to school you know you're ready now. i guess that's just what's. tears me up and said. thank you no come on man
instead start at the same time. most cars insert their were planning to move to a new state this winter. but i don't know if he's going to have. her i know that. there are still look at the last years or another 3rd world country. even though it's united states i see a part of america. it might be americans or the gears of war country
and there is thinking need to curious. kind of new type is thinking. the whole time you could really see it. so how is might be today. in half a town to be moved to the new said by a no. power struggle and money greed to too much money are too. hard tyrone and putting their parking. oh so this is just as good of the earth even though it's turned up oh the loony tune and so. did 2 different councils think they're running legally.
like people. who look if somebody can get out to church or to a degree and like to back so you have some eye for man with 2 or 3 bags this is for me this is for my sister this is for my brother to say you know what he's a disease or did you. doing open just as well as he wants candy to go under the tree and i don't. want a lot. in the 1920 s. and thirty's several 100 african-americans moved to the soviet union and many of their descendants still live in russia. or going at the most because they know no
rush for us though up most of us it got chills for going things on their way. back home but i can merican suffered from racism and a complete lack of prospects. is that not the smug the real. one by else a store on the by doing. so they decided to leave everything behind and start a new life in a country about which they knew almost nothing at all and some of the american reared groups who were through during the night. found great crowds. to moulay a good few you're going to go through and now almost a 100 years later the history is repeating itself my great grandfather george time i went to russia. probable worst time to go anywhere why not me.
why don't i come here. is your media a reflection of reality. in a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. high salacious community. are you going the right way or are you being led. away. what is true what is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or i'm a bit loose shiloh's. the
european medicines agency urges countries to keep using the astra zeneca coronavirus vaccine insisting it's safe also launching a probe into dozens of new cases of severe blood clots. is a sick of. this it did i know they did every stage of the separate demick we might say to ourselves that we could have done better but we made mistakes in the list is true. a stark admission of failure is in the handling of the crisis by the french president as the country's death toll nears 100000 is forced to impose a 3rd national lockdown. also this hour there is fears of a nursing exodus in the u.k. as a poll reveals one in 4.
