Arctic NorthWest passge fully opened


uk.news.yahoo.com

LONDON (Reuters) - The Arctic's Northwest Passage has opened up fully because of melting sea ice, clearing a long-sought but historically impassable route between Europe and Asia, the European Space Agency said.

Sea ice has shrunk in the Arctic to its lowest level since satellite measurements began 30 years ago, ESA said, showing images of the now "fully navigable" route between the Atlantic and the Pacific.

If this isn`t a BIG indicator to global warming then really - nothing is; a path acros the arctic has long been sought after and it is now a reality.

What is sad to see though is that scientists say within out lifetimes the arctic will be ice free.

In my opinion, we're past the point where it matters any longer. Even those who feel that this is due to human activity can do nothing to reverse this particular event. If the NW passage is open, it's open. The normal shipping lanes will dramatically change if the route stays open and Churchill becomes one of North America's most important ports.

There are those who feel that this is a good thing. What do you think will happen if this route becomes permanent?
