Pompeo Cheers Shrinking Sea Ice 4 Clearing Trade Routes: The Arctic Is At The Forefront Of Abundance

“The Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance,” Pompeo said in remarks in Rovaniemi, Finland. “It houses 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil, 30 percent of its undiscovered gas, an abundance of uranium, rare earth minerals, gold, diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped resources, fisheries galore.”

“Steady reductions in sea ice are opening new passageways and new opportunities for trade,” he continued. “This could potentially slash the time it takes to travel between Asia and the West by as much as 20 days.”

1. He is definitely serious. These folks (ignorant money is everything people) are deadly

2. self-centered and selfish to the extreme

The irony is that these folks believe their money will save their children from the disaster they are staging. It won't.
