The Race To Own The Arctic

Read an interesting article about te Arctic today.  I have thought that it’s just a giant piece of ice up north (that is melting because of global warming) but this article sure teaches me some intriguing facts. 

On one hand, routing transportation of goods from Asia to Eastern America and Europe via the Arctic can save lots of mileage and hence fuel; on the other hand, I can’t imagine what all the traffic will do to damage the polar bear and other animals’ habitat.
