The Future of the Arctic Coast

"In twenty years the Arctic coast of Alaska may look like the Coast of Louisiana today, lit by the lights of ships and oil rigs. One port there may become a trade hub as important as Singapore. Singapore, once a mangrove swamp, is now the biggest seaport in the world."

     -- Scott Borgerson, Oceans Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, as quoted in The Eskimo and The Oil Man
