    The Arctic Circle, an assembly founded by the President of Iceland and held annually to help define the deliberations of the Arctic Council, was held in October in Reykjavík, Iceland. World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill was there, and he is back this week to discuss the conference and the interests and aspirations of the many countries that had representatives attending in order to assert their claim on what appears to be an inevitable future of exploitation of Arctic resources.
