Arctic Melt part 2.

A brief follow up to yesterday's post...

Apparently Russia's claim of the north pole has pissed off the EU.
"Climate change may provoke conflict between the European Union and Russia as Arctic ice melts."

Mmmm, oil. "[An] area of the Arctic shelf [claimed by Russia] may hold 10 billion tons of oil equivalent, as well as gold, nickel and diamond deposits, the Russian government says." (bloomberg)
