Global Warming's Effect on Arctic Transport

A UCLA study showing that global warming over the next 40 years will likely open up Arctic shipping routes while limiting inland trucking was highlighted Sunday by Reuters; Monday by Agence France-Presse, the Toronto Globe & Mail, Canada's Postmedia News, the London Times, a Nature blog and the Alaska Dispatch; and today by the Wall Street Journal's MarketWatch. Study author Scott Stephenson, a UCLA graduate student, and co-author Laurence C. Smith, UCLA professor of geography, were quoted.
