Ice in the Arctic is disappearing-and opportunity is calling. As climate change transforms the top of the world, warmer conditions are exposing a treasure trove of energy resources previously trapped in ice. The Arctic's oil, natural gas, minerals, and even wind and hydroelectric power are becoming more accessible than ever before. With untold riches hanging in the balance, the race is on to control the Arctic and its energy potential. Oil companies vie for drilling rights that go to the highest bidder. Nations around the globe-whether they're on the Arctic's doorstep or half a world away-hope to claim territory for themselves. And the indigenous peoples who have called this region home for thousands of years are determined to be on the ground floor of its development. But the Arctic's new possibilities come with grave risks. The pursuit of oil and natural gas threatens to further damage the Arctic's fragile ecosystems and accelerate global warming worldwide. International disputes over who owns which pieces of the Arctic could bring countries to the brink of war. The fate of the entire planet may hinge on how far people are willing to go to tap and control the Far North's energy resources. From oil rigs to military bases, the Arctic has never before hosted so many warring interests, and the stakes have never been so high. Join Stephanie Sammartino McPherson on a journey to the Far North to explore the energy controversies that will decide the future of the Arctic-and of the earth.

If there was actually Global Warming skyrocketing, and the Arctic was Ice Free and Mild, then why is it SO DIFFICULT and TREACHEROUS to get to the Arctic pole then....hmmm? That's because the Arctic Sea Ice has been growing immensely for the past years, not decreasing, despise what the liars at the US Geology says to benefit their CARBON TAX political profits. The truth is that the Sun is going into a Solar Minimum or Solar Hibernation, due to reduced solar sunspots that controls the Earth weather, not man, that's hilarious at best. Earth is heading into the Mini Ice Age, followed by the Major Ice Age that will last for at least 90,000 years and wipe out at least 90% of the civilizations on earth, and people will freeze, starve, and riot for food, there will be massive wars everywhere for resources and the worst of humankind will be in play for centuries and millenia.
