    Please leave the Artic alone. Do you realize the continuous ice melting brings more problems after this and gonna cost all of us. Lost of wildlife habitat, enviromental problem and can lead to other pandemic as melting ice will release the ancient virus which we had never encounter before.

    When will humans ever learn specially those in power, you destroy /abuse mother earth and she wont be able to help mankind anymore, it will be pandemic after pandemic until no more humans then and only then will mother earth shine again, humans indeed are victims of their own actions no matter how rich/powerful you are, your bunkers will not be enough to save you! There is indeed enough on earth to satisfy one’s need but not enough for one’s greed!

    The only reason humans cant accept that, is that they dont want a hot earth. There was a jungle, an ice field, a desert and now its melting again. Human cant play god so thats the news to make all more bad than it is xD

    Resources are indeed important for human survival to overcome the needs of human and at the same time, all the nations must realise the consequences which might happen due to environmental disasters. UNEP and all the concerned agencies must involve in this issue, curbing economical activities through such reserved corridors!

    Why is everyone obsessed with this fucking oil, when we have literally infinite energy from sun and wind? Are they retarded or what?

    And here we go! More drilling, more pollution, more wildlife wipe out! Nothing learnt. Money rules the world.
