Portraits of Resilience

Sun

The sun used to come February the 4th, but now it comes one day earlier. The reason why it comes earlier is climate change.


 

The sun used to come February the 4th, but now it comes one day earlier. The reason why it comes earlier is climate change.

As the climate changes and the air gets warmer, the snow melts and the sun comes up over the
mountains earlier. North Greenlanders are positively affected when the sun comes sooner because it is dark the whole winter, and because it is lovely to see the sun again.
