The New Battleground (or "Global Warming: Why Goverments Don't Really Give A Shit").....

An international scramble for the Arctic's oil and gas resources accelerated yesterday when Canada responded to Russia's recent sovereignty claims with a plan to build two military bases in the region.....

.....global warming has seen some of it melt, making drilling feasible. The US geological survey estimates that 25% of the world's undiscovered oil and gas could be located under the polar cap.

Ohhhhh goody.
