    I still don’t see a downside if all the Arctic ice melted anyway. Why does the media assume this is bad? I see increased economic activity like trade routes and recovery of natural resources.

      Until some of them get expensively caught up in seasonal ice – eg Nome’s relief oil tanker at the end of last year.

    • There Is No Substitute for Victory. says:

      Remember John 9/10ths of an ice burg is underwater, if all the Artic Sea ice melted at worst the water level in the Earth’s oceans would remain exactly where it currently is. That is because ice is water and ice only floats because it expands when it freezes and displaces more sea water than sea ice contains.
