    So does the US Military, so do many Fortune 500 companies and so do many other nations.  They KNOW that the climate is changing and behind closed doors they are figuring out ways to make money off of it.

    The US Military - in conjunction with the Canadian Navy are planning year round open water bases in the northern parts of Canada/Alaska in anticipation of a year round - open passage allowing freight to be moved much more quickly through open artic waters.

    The reason that the military is involved is that there is a little less "room" at the top of the world and they are concerned that the Russians or others may try to control a large portion of this increasingly valuable area.

    Shipping companies are anticipating this new way to transport goods - - and its all predicated upon acceptanch that Climate Change is here to stay, regardless of what they put out for global consumption.

    "How can the United States be the Greatest Nation ever if it is the only modern nation where citizens hold bake sales to pay for life saving medical care?" Single payer is coming but how many people will die before it becomes the only solution?
