The book is about a young boy named Tore who lives in an Arctic village. Tore loses a dog sled race because he crashes through the thinning ice allegedly caused by man made greenhouse gas emissions. The book features colorful drawings and large text to appeal to young children. After the boy loses the dog sled race, he is visited by "Sedna, the Mother of the Sea."in a dream. The 'Sea Mother" Goddess informs Tore in blunt terms that the thinning ice that caused his loss in the dog sled race was due to man made global warming. "I'm the one who created and cares for the sea creatures, whales and walruses, seals and fish," the "Sea Mother" explains to Tore. The "Sea Mother" then tells the boy she will educate him about the reason the ice is thinning.
The "Snowy owl" tells Tore that winning dog sledding races "might not be your top worry" and the owl instead tells the boy the "lots of things are changing fast. Some people who hunt for a living are already going hungry because a lot of seals and walruses are heading north." Next, a polar bear informs Tore that it is hungry because the ice is too thin to stand on and hunt and the bear says that other bears have "starved" because the ice went out to sea. The Polar bear adds, "We may not have much of a future." The polar bear concludes by telling Tore, "It looks like many animals and fish and birds will go extinct-die out-during your lifetime, partly because of changes in climate." The whale appears to present more climate fear, the boy finally screams , "Listen, I've had all the bad news I can stand. Our world is melting. Polar bears are starving and all sorts of animals won't survive. I don't want to hear anymore"
The "Sea Mother" tells him of the dangerous effects that an oil and gas based energy system has on the climate, and the "Sea Mother" singles out the industrialized world as the cause of her climate catastrophe. "Rich countries use and waste an awful lot of energy. Huge cars. Too many cars instead of efficient trains and buses." the Sea Mother explains to Tore.
Can you believe this? No matter which side you are on, you don't bring children into the discussion of global warming. They don't and can not understand what global warming is. All you are doing is planting fear and they will give up on the future. In their little minds they can't see what they can do, so they cry. Adults are suppose to keep them safe so they can dream of becoming great in life.
