Beaufort Sea ice rot and retreat continues

Beaufort Sea ice rot and retreat continues | NWT News | Scoop.it
Reflective ice gives way to dark ocean; ocean absorbs more solar energy, growing hotter and ultimately causing even thinner ice the next winter. The process feeds on itself.... In what surely adds another dismal harbinger to the summer fate of the Beaufort Sea's ice pack and long-term prospects for Alaska's endangered polar bears, an international research team has discovered that sea ice didn't rebound all that much during the past winter.

Phase two of Arctic drilling review starts in Inuvik #NWT | NWT News | Scoop.it
The most common concerns expressed by Northern communities included clean-up methods, costs and responsibilities of a spill; worry for the unique Arctic environment including its currents and ice; inspection and monitoring by the energy board and industry; and an increased clarity of roles within the governments, if a clean-up was required.

The board initiated the review after the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico last year, where up to 4.9 million barrels of oil spilled into the water over a four-month period.

#NWT MLA wants money pledged for Inuvik to Tuk road

Yellowknife, N.W.T. - Canada's new Transportation minister has been in the job less than half a day, but the MLA for Nunakput isn't wasting any time.

Jackie Jacobson wants the federal government to fulfill its commitment of $150 million toward building the road from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk and wants the NWT minister on the project as well.

“We need this project to go Mr. Speaker, does the minister have a plan on when he'll be meeting with his federal counterpart in Ottawa?" he said.

The NWT Minister of Transportation, Michael McLeod, said he's on it.

“The member is not wasting any time getting on top of the subject, the minister was just announced I think four hours ago," he said. "We're already, as I indicated, have been working on a draft for some correspondence to go to the minister.”

McLeod said an environmental impact statement on the road from Inuvik to Tuk is being drafted and due to be given to a review board by the end of the month.

It provides details on engineering and the potential impacts the project may have on the land and wildlife.

Canada’s Transport Minister is Denis Lebel.
