modern: relating to the present or recent times as opposed to the remote past.
climate change: a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.
grain: Fruits from cereales.
This video present two men; Panel (from Paléo family) and Nils Hendrik (from the reindeer district Kunkuma). They are both from the Sami People, people linving in Lapland which have been herding reindeers for thousands years.
They follow reindeers from place to place, now using snowmobile. Since some years they have some problems because they have never experienced very fast temperature changes with the climate change . It is important in the sens their animals have to get through the snow to eat but with climate change the snow get really hard and the reindeers can not go through it.

Vegetable Production in an Arctic Country :
There is very little crop production in the northern countries, it's explained by the low temperatures throughout the year as well as the lack of light half the year.
This documentary depicts the initiative of an American who came to settle in Longyeardbyen, Svalbard, Norway and who wants to produce vegetables in his city. For this reason, he has developed a permaculture system in greenhouses/igloo where he is currently growing green "plants" such as basil or small green shoots for salads.
