With Global Warming, Arctic Access Will Diminish By Land But Improve By Sea

Global warming over the next 40 years will cut through Arctic transportation networks like a double-edged sword, limiting access in certain areas and vastly increasing it in others, a new UCLA study predicts.

Thanks for the article, Anna, everything's going to change in the next 40 years, and it kind of makes you wonder what's going to happen to the human race, If it's going to affect the Arctic and Antarctic, how will it affect the rest of the world?

This is not necessarily a positive side for the planet, as transportation networks have little to do with sustaining life for our earth as a whole. An increase in water from melting ice could have devastating consequences far greater than just roads or waterways.

And why would we want improved access to the Arctic??? To suck out the last remnants of fossil fuel to send all the psychopathic, ecocidal egotists to another planet to suck dry and destroy?
SICK!

Thanks Anna. Adaptability to a watery world will be of absolute importance to most life. Humans have learned how to exploit and adapt too well for the health of this planet. We have Not learned moderation in exploitation of adaptability unfortunately.
