The Arctic is undergoing dramatic environmental transformations driven by anthropogenic factors, global warming, extractive economies and planetary change. The chapter introduces core themes and arguments of the contributions to this volume examining complex intersections of environmental conditions, geopolitical tensions and local innovative reactions characterising ‘the Arctic’ in the early 21st century. The discussion provides a comprehensive overview of the latest conceptualisations of the drivers of the climate change in the region considering the dynamic of cryocide and its feedback loops, attending to the notions of Anthropocene and non-scalability of the Arctic cryo-world. Expanding the notion of cosmopolitics offered by de La Cadena the authors propose cosmo-geo-analytics which has a potential to activate those epistemological articulations that include not only non-human beings such as whales and reindeer but also powerful geo-morphological entities that constitute the cryo-ecologies of the Circumpolar lands.
