Warming Planet, Ice -Free Seas Mean Easier Fossil Fuel Access

Even though it benefits the Russians, righty trolls and other climate change deniers are dancing at this stick in the collective environmental eye:

In addition to making it easier to ship to Asia, the receding ice cap has opened more of the sea floor to exploration. This has upended the traditional business model of using pipelines to Europe. Thawing has proceeded more slowly in the Arctic above Alaska, Canada and Greenland, but one day what is happening in Russia could happen there.
