For the last 40 years, I’ve roamed the polar regions of our world. I started as a child, growing up in an Inuit community on Baffin Island, Canada, where I learned from the Inuit people not just to survive in our environment — but to thrive in and love the Arctic for all it had to offer.
Later, as a scientist, I tried using data to make the case for conservation. But it wasn’t until I became a polar photographer for Sea Legacy and National Geographic magazine that I finally found a way to convey the urgency of protecting this fragile ecosystem for the good of all humanity.

As a scientist, what I know about the Arctic is terrifying. Currently, it’s warming twice as fast as anywhere else on the planet. As a photographer, I can observe and document these effects first-hand: receding glaciers, struggling wildlife populations, and cities impacted by rising sea levels.
And as the landscape changes, driven by climate change, I am watching the Arctic region become increasingly vulnerable. In particular, we should see the rapid disappearance of sea ice here for what it is: a sign of imminent and catastrophic change. The danger of an oil spill would deliver a fatal blow to this pristine and critically important ecosystem.
This week, President Obama designated vast portions of the United States’ Arctic Ocean as indefinitely off limits for future oil and gas leasing.
The new withdrawal — which encompasses the entire U.S. Chukchi Sea and the vast majority of the U.S. Beaufort Sea — will provide critical protection for the unique and vibrant Arctic ecosystem, which is home to marine mammals and other vital ecological resources and marine species, and upon which many Alaska Native communities depend. With this action, we’ve now protected nearly 125 million acres in the Arctic from future oil and gas activity since 2015.

This action also comes in conjunction with Canada’s announcement that it will freeze offshore oil and gas leasing in its Arctic waters, to be reviewed every five years through a climate and marine science-based assessment.
My career as a scientist, photojournalist, and co-founder of SeaLegacy.org has taught me that merely telling people the ice is melting doesn’t work. Temperatures are rising. Animals are struggling, starving and drowning. Water levels are gradually immersing cities. We can no longer just talk about this. We need to show the world how urgent it is with images and stories and, more importantly, with urgent action.
At this pace the Arctic will be void of ice by 2050. It’s a message that’s hard to hear but easy to understand when you see the damage at the poles of this great Earth. Species whose survival is at serious risk, like the Pacific walrus, polar bear, bowhead whale, fin whale, spectacled eider, and Steller’s eider will benefit from these protections, and so will the communities that rely on the Arctic ecosystem for their way of life.

subnormal magazine was the fearless and defiant punk rock mag that existed in the late 80’s on until the early 2000’s. subnormal has interviewed countless of the best bands on the planet, and was distributed in over 15 countries world wide, and every major city in the U.S., before the internet took control of your brain. It retired from hard copy and gradually crept back online here at the Hollywood Sentinel, and returns back to terrorize all fascists with its own site– on a day written of–but known by few. subnormal does not care about your fame, fortune, or awards. subnormal is wikileaks on steroids, ready to blow the lid of your dying planet. If you don’t like it–you know where to go.
CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS RUTHLESS ABUSE OF CONSUMERS
Shame on the unethical jerks of Charter Communications for jacking up consumers utility bills by fifteen dollars per month the very same week they purchased Time Warner earlier last fall–a monopoly action foolishly approved by the federal government. Charter is owned by Microsoft, which recently allegedly got into business with the pot industry, reportedly making new technology for certain drug dealers to sell their weed.
BROOKE SHIELDS STALKER–BUSTED!
Creeper Stalker of Brooke Shields John Rinaldi was thrown in jail for a mere 2 months this year, due to his lunatic, psychotic behavior of stalking the beautiful star for many years, with even worse recent actions reportedly affecting the stars’ children. The psychopath’s lawyer–Jonathan Stonbely, idiotically tried defending the indefensible nut by stating that the only reason the case went to trial is because of Brooke Shield’s fame. Uh yeah–duh dude. Which is also one of the key reasons this nut stalked the star in the first place. The lunatic stalker was found guilty on all four counts against him. Stay away from Brooke Shields and her kids–loser!
I’M MORE FAMOUS YOU THAN YOU ARE!
“Hollywood is like a high school popularity contest for grown ups- except most are not really grown up– they’re mostly just a bunch of egotistical, neurotic brats running around like small children, demanding to get their way, and screaming, ‘Look at me!’ ‘Look at me!’ when inside, most are sick, damaged, lost souls, worshiping at the alter of fame which is- like the flames of hellfire- never satisfied”–subnormal magazine
Will the jackass that keeps sending us e-mails for boob jobs and vaginal reconstruction, with graphic nude photos in his e-mails that we did not ask for, kindly ‘stop’ e-mailing us? Dr. Michael Arata should be ashamed of himself for preying on the vulnerable insecurities of young women, whose bodies are just fine the way they are. Plastic surgery is poison, avoid it!
Former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno reportedly knew of the sexual-abuse allegations against assistant coach scum Jerry Sandusky as early as 1976. A man identified as John Doe allegedly testified in 2014 that he informed Paterno about Sandusky’s inappropriate acts in 1976 when he was a young teenager, and that Paterno did nothing about it. Doe testified in court that Paterno said to him; “I don’t want to hear about any of that kind of stuff, I have a football season to worry about.” Scum Sandusky is reportedly serving a minimum 30-year prison sentence for raping 10 young boys on the Penn State campus.
THE BILLIONAIRE PEDOPHILE
Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who reportedly got away with merely 13 months in jail and home detention, reportedly had a team of child traffickers working for him to recruit and traffic children as young as 12 years of age, to prostitute them out to many of the rich and famous on his so called Virgin Island property, “Orgy Island.”
The so called Pizza Gate scandal will be explored in the next issue of subnormal magazine here, out later this month in December.
Sexist Scum of the Art World
Miserable because he is either old and ugly, afraid to come out of the closet, or just a typical loser, German Neo-Sexist painter Georg Baselitz stated in a 2013 interview the idiotic quote that will mark his worthless grave– “Women don’t paint very well,” he said “It’s a fact.” Go back to your bunker old fool–we’re not having it.
Germany Stifles Art Freedom
Germany is destroying more freedoms in the art world, requiring dealers and owners of blue chip art works to get “permission” before their property can be considered to be sold outside of Germany. If the work is considered too old or valuable, Germany can deny the export. This is the same fascist like tactic Mexico enacted for works by Frida Khalo, except Germany is applying it to the entire art world in their country. Little do these alleged cultural defenders know, without freedom, culture is a soulless corpse, void of all, and meaning nothing.
Frieze Art Fair
Frieze Art Fair in New York has frozen progress, and is shrinking from five days of exhibition down to four. That which does not expand contracts. A business, institution or person needs to always be promoting and always expanding!
