5 Dias 5 Navn på enhed (Indsæt --> Diasnummer) The Ilulissat Icefjord as a climate symbol “Every time we have had guests with us to Greenland - in my first four years as minister I visited Greenland five times – we have had scientists with us to “entertain” our guests. If you only see the greatness and beauty, you will not understand anything. Then it is only a nice trip to some outstanding nature. No, you need to have the mechanism explained and the whole meaning with the visit is to make the visitors more informed on the climate. You have to be quite unintelligent not to get smarter from such a trip; fortunately in Denmark we have some extraordinary insightful scientists… “ (Hedegaard 2008: 89, translated by the author)
