(Uummannaq, North Greenland, Arctic Circle. Photographer: David H Ottosen) Here I am, Kalinda Palmer, possibly the first Australian Aboriginal to reflect in North Greenland, where the peaceful and inevitable landscape encourages one to do so.

Anyone who’s visited South-East Asia recently will tell you that there’s one thing you immediately notice — the smog. Indonesia is burning, and…
