Larry Kilham Blog
I watched a very interesting series on Netflix called The Polar Sea, and the website is http://polarsea360.arte.tv/. European adventurers sail several yachts through the Northwest Passage. They stop along the way, primarily in Inuit native villages.
We learn that, due to global warming, the traditional game such as seals are disappearing, and the Inuit are cautiously welcoming tourists, all kinds of ships, and possibly settlers. The flatlands, recently covered by glaciers, are turning into grassy areas. These may evolve to tree-covered areas where pioneers could settle.
Of course, the composition of wildlife on land and in the sea will be different than today, but this may be the last frontier as the western world dies off.
By the way: Find the open boat with some people in it in the photo.
