"You Can't Fight in Here. This Is The War Room!"

Wired News reports that new mapping of the Arctic may bolster U.S. claims in the region to rich reserves of oil and natural gas.

and gas could be hidden beneath the Arctic seabed. Growing evidence that global
warming is shrinking polar ice - opening up resource development and new
shipping lanes - has added to the urgency of the claims.
