Kerri Pratt reflects on the disconnect between scientific knowledge and personal experiences of rapid climate change in the Arctic. Despite writing about it in research proposals and papers, witnessing the tremendous impact of sea ice loss within just 10 years is a startling realization. Kerri emphasizes the need to stay emotionally detached to cope with the frightening implications. But she acknowledges the resilience of Arctic communities who remain positive amidst ongoing changes, envisioning more water and increased fishing opportunities. The magnitude of change in the Arctic, such as open water in winter, is both awe-inspiring and alarming.
