Changing winds herald climate risks for Arctic airports

I wouldn't have thought of this as a consequence of climate change. Yet there it is. What other consequences will we start seeing?

As part of a continuing study, Mr. Leung has been gathering meteorological data from small airstrips around Hudson Bay and the Eastern Arctic. The results, which have yet to be published, suggest that gradual shifts in average wind speed and direction due to climate change will render at least some of those airstrips less safe in the future unless costly upgrades are put in place to help mitigate the increased risk.
