Description: 

For decades, Sheila Watt-Cloutier has been fighting for the right to be cold, not only for Inuit in the Arctic, but for the entire world.
However now, as temperatures continue to rise, the nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize for her work on climate change and Indigenous rights, believes it is time everyone started taking action because "what's happening in the Arctic doesn't just stay in the Arctic, it connects every one of us, no matter where we live," she said.
