** Global Warming and the Increasing Importance of the Arctic
The NYTimes is doing a great piece of journalism on how global warming is affecting the Arctic. I cannot recommend this article strongly enough. It's quite long; I printed out a copy and took it home to read on the subway.
I can't possibly summarize it in one blog post, but the key issues seem to be resource exploitation and the opening of shipping lanes. It's a part of the world that most of us rarely think about, but it's time to start.
