1. ARCTIC:

Will climate change allow ships to cross over the North Pole?

Warming temperatures may melt sea ice in the Arctic to such a degree by midcentury that ships may be able to travel through previously inconceivable routes across the North Pole and through the famed Northwest Passage, according to a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Plus. The study breaks new ground in not just examining climate models of thinning ice but comparing them to maritime regulations for polar vessels.
