Xu Hemao (left), other young explorers and an old Inuit lady

“WHEN I was young, my father taught me how to read the weather. The same methods don’t work today. The climate has changed and I can’t teach my son anymore,” an old Inuit lady told us.

The Inuit people know the Arctic best. This hostile (恶劣的) environment is as home to them as the city is to me. They were raised to live in harmony (和谐) with nature and to meet the challenges of survival in an extreme climate, but this very environment is changing rapidly, culturally as much as naturally. The Inuit youngsters grow up nowadays completely differently to the way the elders did.

The Inuit lady we met has lived here for 35 years and a lot has changed since her arrival. The environment is becoming more and more unstable (不稳定的) and the weather has become unpredictable, which makes hunting more and more difficult. Eating, living and hunting habits have all been transformed since the introduction of snow mobiles (雪地摩托) and junk food. These destroyed the balance of their traditional food. In fact, a fist-sized piece of beluga (白鲸) meat contains as much Vitamin C as five oranges. That’s why the Inuits can get all the physical nutrition their bodies need all year round without vegetables or fruits. It was only a short time ago that she had her first apple!

We have a set of supplies specially designed to give our bodies the fuel they need for long days of skiing. Every gram of food that we take has an important function (功用). Each day we consume around 6,000 calories, of which 2,000 calories are burnt during sleeping. The average person in everyday life needs around 1800 calories a day. It’s definitely (肯定地) not easy to survive in the Arctic.

Tomorrow we’ll hopefully head off to the Arctic Ocean, if the weather up north allows.
