    to the tender mercies of the Russian oligarchs doesn't strike me as being a very promising solution. I don't hold out much hope for any sort of meaningful Arctic treaty given there are oil reserves at stake.

      I meant it more like if anyone is interested to see what bad stuff can happen, they only need to look at the russian arctic, and then ask Shell or whoever else how they intend to deal with that. Because they cant.  

      But the only ones who may be able to enforce a ban on gambling with the arctic is the states. Noone else can. And they will do it only under public pressure.
