Why is that environazi's always use the words "rush" (regarding drilling), "pristine" and "fragile"? Don't they have a thesaurus (sp)?

Could be worse. Could be Rockall. That's a five-way-fight between the Brits, Irish, Danes, Icelanders and Greenpeace. (Really)

It got so bad, guard duty there became the worst hardship post in the Royal Navy. I hope the pic comes out.

Warming concern

It is also believed that global warming is causing the rapid melting of the ice across the Arctic, and that could make the legendary North-West Passage linking the Atlantic and the Pacific passable for ships for the first time.

Canada has all but dissolved it's military, they probably have enough fuel to get there, no ammo and will end up rowing back. I'm sure they are not scaring anyone but the Coast Guard rescue pilots who will have to break the bank to save them in a week.
