Climate change may spark conflict with Russia, EU told

Alert over scramble for control of energy resources in the Arctic

A very interesting article from the Guardian. A good read:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/mar/10/eu.climatechange


An excerpt...

" The Arctic thaw has already created "minor tensions" between Russia and Nato member Norway over fishing rights around the Spitsbergen archipelago. "The islands of Spitsbergen ... have large deposits of gas and oil that are currently locked under a frozen continental shelf," the document states.

"If global warming were to allow this to become a viable source of energy, a serious conflict could emerge between Russia and Norway." This "potential crisis" would draw in the US, Canada and Denmark "competing for large and viable energy resources and precious raw materials". "
