“The western Arctic has gone from being too cold to being too warm for guillemots in approximately four decades,” Divoky said.
...In 2009, 200 chicks hatched; polar bears ate 90 of them and puffins killed 80. Only one guillemot chick fledged that year.

...The man who was the subject of a climate change play on England’s Royal National Theatre and who once helicoptered off the island in mid-summer to attend the high-powered Aspen Environment Forum will once again be sleeping on a windy island during the bleak arctic summer.
