As the ice in the Arctic is melting, the region is opening itself up for the world - for better or for worse. The countries in the Arctic Circle started to lay claims; many countries outside the Arctic Circle, including those in Asia, have started to pay attention to the north for energy, business, shipping, and resource opportunities.
