Rebel Notion No. 9 – 0007 – As The Permafrost Thaws

Bridges collapse June 2008 in Pangnirtung, Nunavut
Bridges collapse June 2008 in Pangnirtung, Nunavut

This piece uses approximately four minutes of audio from the documentary :  Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change.  Pangnirtung, Nunavut residents speak in their native tongue about a flash flood that occurred in June 2008.  The flash flood caused the collapse of two bridges that connect the north and south end of the community over the Duval River.  The bridges were built on the community’s permafrost.  The permafrost in the northern latitudes is becoming unstable for their infrastructure as it thaws.   I do voice over English translation using the documentary’s subtitles. The audio is 3 minutes and 47 seconds long.  I recorded the voice over using Audacity, Alesis Multimix 8 USB Mixer, and Apex microphone connected to my Ubuntu server.
