The earth is warming. Almost all the Arctic summer ice may have melted by the end of the century, claims the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC. The upside - access to an estimated quarter of the world's oil and gas resources and the opening of the fabled North West passage. The downside - the Arctic wilderness is lost as neighbouring countries, Denmark and Greenland, Russia, Canada, Norway and the United States all race to share in the bounty. Earth Report discovers the importance of the worlds icy regions, and asks how much the geopolitical scramble will impact this, the world's last frontier.
