“It is almost as if the Arctic has changed its natural state.”
The title quote comes from US Navy Admiral David Titley, hired “to think about the Arctic.” In the Arctic, the ice is melting as never before
which is opening up a tremendous can of worms for the governments of the attendant land masses, particularly our own. If the Arctic ice had been this absent in May of 1778, Captain Cook might have lived to see England again, because there would have been no need to turn back at the Bering Strait and head south to Hawaii.
The Eskimo and The Oil Man: The Battle at the Top of the World for America’s Future by Bob Reiss

Surprising, and refreshing.
