    Arctic opportunities and territorial claims are on the rise as temperatures change and the ice melts. Once impassable, the Arctic is now increasingly accessible to drilling, shipping traffic, and other global enterprise. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill describes what a transformed Arctic might look like, and suggests that we should be encouraging, subsidizing, and investing in alternative technologies so that we may leave the pristine North alone.
