17/08/2017 at 09:54 0 kommentarer

The USA has handed chairmanship of the Arctic Council over to Finland. The most important delivery of the US chairmanship (2015-2017) is a new international agreement on Arctic Science Cooperation.

The recent moratorium on gas and oil exploration in the Arctic jointly issued by Canada and the United States once again shows that the Arctic is still not about the people living there, but rather remains in the realm of the politics of oil and determined by powers located far from the Arctic.

Op-Ed: Who`s North?

The treeline, beyond which trees don’t grow because of ice, snow and cold, is at 50°N in some places. Above 60°N the land is pretty well packed white all winter long. And it’s a long winter.
