More on the disappearing artic

That ship could soon be building oil rigs in the Artic sea.

Interesting article from the BBC here.

Although I don't really think the accompanying graph shows what the article claims, (a steeper decline in sea ice coverage for this year than last), that the ice is disappearing is the case.

I like the irony here: a warming atmosphere, driven at least in part by the burning of fossil fuels, may lead to increasing the supply of those same fuels because if the ice disappears enough...drilling would be easier!

I wonder how the antarctic is doing?
