The Suicidal Race for Arctic's Natural Resources - Obama's Arctic strategy sets off a climate time bomb

The Suicidal Race for Arctic's Natural Resources - Obama's Arctic strategy sets off a climate time bomb | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

May, 16, 2013 Guardian Environment - Nafeez Ahmed:

US National Strategy for the Arctic Region prioritises corporate 'economic opportunities' at the expense of everyone else..

At the heart of the White House's new Arctic strategy is an elementary but devastating contradiction between what President Obama, in the document's preamble, describes as seeking "to make the most of the emerging economic opportunities in the region" due to the rapid loss of Arctic summer sea ice, and recognising "the need to protect and conserve this unique, valuable, and changing environment."... http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/earth-insight/2013/may/17/obama-arctic-energy-security-climate

In all honesty this started long before Obama showed up. His plan doesn't help things get better though.

Disturbing Aerials Reveal #Canada’s Vast Tar Sand Mines #pollution by the #fossil fuel industry | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
PULLING OIL FROM the tar sands of Canada is an ugly business. It scars the land with deep gashes, barren pits, and murky tailing ponds. It can be hard to grasp the scale of it from the ground, so photographer Stuart Hall rented a plane. What he saw stunned him. “There’s a lot of beauty in that place, but also a lot of destruction,” he says. “It’s like a bad marriage.”
