WHO OWNS THE NORTH POLE?

UNTIL RECENTLY, that question scarcely mattered to anyone. The Pole—in fact, the whole Arctic ice cap—was too remote, too desolate, too inaccessible, and just plain too cold to generate attention. But now, interest in it is heating up along with the planet. The reasons? Oil and fish, mainly. Additionally, new and faster shipping routes and the possible discovery of minerals look promising.

Experts report that vast oil reserves and enormous natural fisheries lie beneath the polar ice cap. But getting at them hasn't been possible. Now, as global warming shrinks the Arctic—this past summer the ice cap reached a record low in size—the impossible may become achievable.
