Still doubtful that the Arctic ice is melting? Shipping companies are banking on it
Terrible! These eeeevvvvuuuuulllll companies are yearning for Glob. . .er. . . Climate Change. Why?
"As the climate warms up and ice melts, many shipping companies are eyeing the Northern Sea Route as a way to cut voyage times and costs in the future.So they're hoping for the ice to melt so they'll have a Northwest Passage to sail in order to save money by saving fuel. And lowering their carbon footprint. But isn't this what the Warmies want? But they're going to do it to save money, not the planet. But they're still. . .Ohhhh, my head hurts.
The trip to China via the Northern route is 30 percent shorter, and requires 1,000 tonnes less fuel."
Addendum: To say this another way, if the shippers are using the Northwest Passage to save money, it's evil. If, on the other hand, they're doing it to SAVE THE PLANET, then it's good and they receive the appropriate merit.
