The New North– Laurence Smith 03/24/2011

His focus is on the arctic, which he sees as a developing region as it is supposed to hold a large portion of the world’s remaining undiscovered oil and gas.

The melting of the polar ice cap will make accessing these easier– but only in some ways. Melting ice opens up the ocean, but closes the ice roads built across the tundra.

Global trends he considers– urbanizing and growing and aging populations. The growing demand for electricity.
