Your premise that pacific islands are going to drown because of arctic ice melting is JUST PLAIN WRONG. Arctic ice floats over the ocean, when it melts there is ZERO rise in sea level. If you want to see real life proof of this, simply fill a glass of water and then put a large ice block in it. You will see as the ice melts the glass does not overflow. Basic science.

Wayward Son (9 days ago)
It doesn't matter if the world heats up. Theres good land to move as the ice melts and technology to stay in the harsh ones that start to cook. As far as loss of life by global warming as you claim: Human life doesn't matter to governments and most people since in America alone 80,000,000 of our people have been aborted and New York says you can kill the baby after its born. Dont even talk about loss of life especially when people have to go to war for the Bankers and their global ambitions.

Up to 250 K deaths a year from climate change? Who comes up with this shit? Oh, and forty years ago they said all the sea Ice was going to have melted by 20 years ago, so maybe if we keep saying it is going to happen in 40 or 50 years it's finally going to happen. I guess people still believe in the coming of some Devine savior/ redeemer or prophet. We all gotta believe in something, I guess.

We should be allowed to tax countries with a fee just like the suez and panama canal. We'll use the funds to build rescue bases in the remote north. Also on the condition ports like Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal get more cargo off loaded in their ports.

Mike Stirewalt (13 days ago)
Making the point that a 13 degree rise will cost only money and a few lives, you might better point out the millions of species being destroyed by fossil fuel use and development, including the acidification of the ocean leading to reefs (the hatcheries of thousands of species of fish and other sea life) disappearing . . . not to mention the flooding of land masses, including most of southern Florida. The ocean is already acidified 30% higher than it was previously. Counting climate change in terms of dollars is patheticly shortsighted.

Hypothetical future. USA says to canada we need more access to the NW passage for trade. Canada replies no thats our passage only we say who can use it. 2051 Canada says to USA help! Help! We're under attack from China! Bring all your naval power to the passage bail us out of this! You decide who will use it for now on.
Jaws10214 (27 days ago)
Wendover, I expected better from. acting all colonialist. those waterways are not already considered international waterways, and they never will be. ships can just as easily spend the extra 12 hours and go around our islands. they trek through them, and we will arrest them and send their ass home on a bus. they provide no one ocean access. shortening shipping routes should be, and IS seen as a future profit model. and if America stood to profit from such a scenario, something tells me you'd be against foreign ships floating freely through your sovereign territory too. even if we were fully developed up there, I'd still argue against it. We will allow all nations, bar the ones America has sanctions on because we don't want end up like Hauwei's CFO now do we? We WILL Be Charging Transit Fee's which will go to operational costs of patrolling our coast guard up there, some will go to the Inuit communities, and the rest will be put in a pot for the inevitable rainy day when some foreign oil tanker dumps their load of oil in our seas. If you think we should not be allowed to charge for those basic services, than we Will arrest anyone we catch, and we will go out of our way to dredge up dirt, sand and clay and start connecting those islands, cutting off access for any ships. Either Pay the Piper, or go the around our Islands.

There is definitely a Chinese dude being ordered to draw up some "ancient" maps that show this is all belongs to China and the communists.
FatSonny (21 days ago)
@Rich That is the layman's take on China, but you are wrong. China is still dominated by a Leninist, single-party state, completely authoritarian, with a surveillance and censorship system that Stalin would dream of. 40% of the Internet is blocked, all major industries are state owned, the successful private companies receive massive state subsidies and nothing in China is done without the communist party's say-so. The Chinese military swears allegiance to the Chinese communist party. China is VERY communist, they are just communists that have figured how to exploit the West. I could go on, but I will just encourage you to start looking deeper at China.
John Smith (22 days ago)
@Harbour Dog It's getting past the narrow Bering Strait between Russia and the United States coasts to get to Canada that will be the tricky part for China.

>rising sea levels from melting ice What the heck do people not understand about buoancy. Put some ice in a glass of water. Measure the level of the water. leave this glass in a room above freezing. Come back in an hour and confirm that the ice has melted but the water level hasn't changed at all. Ice displaces water based on its weight, not its volume. melting ice doesn't raise water levels

I think the NWP should be entirely controlled by Canada for a few reasons. 1: political sn military power. Canada is not known for military might, so the ability to ruin economy's in times of war or political conflict is going to greatly reduce our dependance on the us military and allies with Canada can have a say in that 2: shipping aid. With ships being charged to go through the NWP Canada can begin to afford to set up the equipment to make shipping safer and easier. When most of a country is ice, they learn how to deal with ice. 3: haven't we been nice? Can we please take a little slice of the trading cake we have yet to cut into? Is that so bad?

Wow! You sure present a lot of "Facts" about the future climate. It's funny that no climate scientists are saying anything about the future climate other than that it cannot be predicted. Even the United Nations panel have stated the very same thing. The only people presenting this "Future Climate" are politicians, activists, and extreme "?Ecologists?" (You even quoted the EPA) For anyone on the fence, search for and see if you can find ANY climate prediction in the last 150 years that is actually come about as predicted (or even close) Ice melt and ocean rise? Try this grade school science experiment. Fill a glass half-full of ice cubes. Then add water slowly until the glass is completely full, if not slightly above the rim. (Do to surface tension) Observe the glass while the ice melts.......!AMAZING! The water level does not rise! Ice is less dense than water. That is why it floats. As it melts it only fills the void taken up by the amount of ice below the surface. (Displacement... look that up, too) Then you might be interested in the big picture. (Probably not) When bringing loss of ice into the discussion, leaving ice increase in other parts of the world out of the discussion, then some of these predictions SEEM plausible. If it is possible to ignore the Alarmists and go read the actual data and statistics, you will see that most of the argument is pure Orwellian BS. Compare the raw data gathered by scientists to the "INTERPRETED FINDINGS" presented in the media. You might just have an "AHA! moment."

Jaws10214 (1 month ago)
both your excuses, and yes that is what they are, are bullshit Wendover. the Alaska/Russia canal borders two international nations. the international waters ride the borderline. there are no international borders between our islands. the European Canals only exist to allow landlocked nations access to international waters. there are no landlocked nations up there. and we Canadians do not care about international "usefulness", the ONLY things we care about is being able to fund our coast guard, and clean up any shipping disasters like oil carriers dumping their cargo into our waters. ^^^For THESE REASONS We Will be charging ANY international ships Tariffs to navigate that route. IF you want to use either of Wendover's excuses as reasoning to force us Canadians to allow shipping through our archipelago, than these international ships can ride the border between Greenland and Canada then ride the outer coast of our archipelago islands. Going through our Islands, especially with foreign military/coast guard ships, is a breach of international law, and a cause for war.
