which endeavors to look on the bright side of global warming and points out that with the melting of the polar ice caps ~25% of the world’s oil reserves will become available for exploitation, and there are expectations that a lot of additional mineral assets will become available. This is already leading to a land rush at the north pole as countries begin to claim previously inaccessible areas. No significant mention of the fact that many of the world’s major cities will have some serious issues with rising water levels. NYC 15′ underwater? No problem a dike can’t solve!
