Good News! The North Pole is MELTING!!



I read an interesting article in the New York Times about global warming. It takes an unusual look at the rarely heard of “good news” about global warming. Kind of makes you get excited about seeing the all the ice melt! Here are some of the highlights….

New shipping routes are being opened up as the ice melts resulting in quicker and cheaper ocean freight for imports and exports. With cheaper ocean freight, that 4-in-one omelet spatula at Walmart may be 72 cents instead of 78 cents!

New Oil reserves, once buried under glaciers are now easier to get to. We might need to start expanding the Alaskan Pipeline to make it easier to get this new oil to our refineries!

Desolate frozen areas, once thawed, will become hotbeds for development and “colonization” – Get the urban sprawl machine gassed up…were going north! With all the igloos melting, the Eskimos are in the market for entry level condos.

New exotic cruise ship lanes going to the seasonally warm north pole would boost the travel industry. Be the first to stay at the all inclusive North Pole resort, where you can swim with the polar bears!!

  • The freezer at work has about as much ice in it as that glaciear does. Nobody seems to care about that melting!

  • You do relize that if the glacier melts the sea level will rise and there will be less land mass for humans to live on. So I guess it's great for people needing to full there cars up with gas, but horrible for the already crowded cities.
