For more than a decade, China has been looking for openings into the Arctic. It increased exploration and research and declared itself a near Arctic power. Acclaim. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo derided at the 2019 Arctic Council meeting in Finland. Beijing claims to be a near Arctic state. That the shortest distance between China and Arctic is 900 miles. There are only Arctic states and not Arctic states. No third category exists and claiming otherwise entitles China to exactly nothing. Or maybe it does because China is now a permanent observer on the Arctic Council, an intergovernmental Forum of Arctic government, the United States, Russia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Plus Arctic indigenous communities and China's made clear its interest in having access to the Northern Sea route to the fishing, perhaps oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean's high seas.

"So as an expert on, on VR I could explain to us, how is going to work. Or your star. Why don't the key principle of the as the synergy of the strategies that we are not replace, or dilute, not also differently that exist in maccagnan that working so well? And that developing strategy that Eric country an ad in every region. So that your Asia Economic union actually before the work quite a while. So I think the Chinese man set as to what gather we stand to, to reach the effect. So go to the one plus one more than to affect China Europe. Real express pass through central Asia in Russia and benefit not to Russia under central Asian countries. But also turn on the Europe. So this is a win win even all win strategy. I think yes. And Mr. Charlotte, how do you view these in investments from Russia and from CHAI? China in the region for importance in central Asia. How, how does India views? Arching India, always wanted to have a connection with a central Asia because of bomb Peachtree. And there are some Mutua synergies in terms of whether you can say some products, or services should be the ARL in Intellegentia and gas which can be used by consumers and Russia in China. Now, the also member countries of India is part of it indirectly will facilitate or help India to connect to these central Asian countries. Yes. Professor one. Just now, Tim to Dodds actually shipping, also set you on a strength. In the communication was Russia and other parties to support rushers. Northern sea route, however at two meeting of the Arctic Council last month. The secretary of state Mike Pompeo, he warned up the dentures, Russian militarization and Chinese investment in the Arctic and described the Rijn, as and Raina of global power and competition. How do you view those? Often girl update of these seven starring states. But besides as they also commerce does his. Is not belong to any sovereign states. So China is a stakeholder of the ATI and for scientific research and also for the global Trajan new connected, China Europe through the nose. North Pole under also China efficient to infrastructure.

They want dominate or they want to sustain of any new force to join this to dilute the influence, I think that China and the us even can work together to climate change to deal with the many other challenges in north. Pres go beyond that old global comers, not just the octave issue, but also space. I a space and office, and also the high c which no one can dominant people the tunnels to the global community, but we need more coordination and collaboration. So I think the President Trump's policy where in the future where where come back to the to the multilateral way because a lot of way not work, so well, take Kumble's agree. I think the US's basically bringing this power politics into building Arctic region in previously. There's been talk off for expiratory exploration coordination corporation that is for the benefit of every participating countries. But now the US is talking about in the competition in the naming China Russia. And the United States by the for the rest of his Arctic Council. Countries members not be happy about that. This is not about competition. This is really about the cooperation in dealing with the climate change which threatens the existence of human being and also a spa, the use of whatever opportunities in, in this region and also potentials in this region from the benefits of again for this region. So the US is now politicizing the whole region. I'm not sure that will be expected. And also because of puppy. Attendance for the first time in their history. The Arctic Council field to issue, a joint declaration. So this is US is becoming this Asaba Taj. A force is becoming the spoiler of this.

Explainer 167: Why has Trump ramped up his war on the environment?

"As a people, we want and need economic growth. But now we must also expect environmental responsibility and respect the natural world. It was a Republican President, George Bush, senior, and not democrat to help stay through one of the most ambitious pieces of climate change legislation today, eight amending the Clean Air Act in nineteen ninety two limit air pollution, and tackle, everything from urban smoke to acid rain while his son fad less. Well, refusing to ratify the key Oto protocol in two thousand and one and helping tank brand America around the world. George Hw mate, an important point, protecting the environment and advancing big business didn't need to be mutually exclusive when one does, if the current Oakmont of the White House, don't. Out, J Trump has ever listened to that speech. We've seen enough of this stalemate. It's time to clear the air. You know, I think we will indeed since moving into Pennsylvania Avenue in January of two thousand seventeen Trump's administration has mounted a concerted effort to refu- climate change science and loosen regulations in favor of the fossil fuel industry. So how did the forty fifth president of the US become such a champion and chief of the environmental skeptics? And they say as and why as ever with Trump. The answer is complicated and contradictory Trump's musings, own the environment, actually predate his ascendancy to the presidency taking his favorite communications medium Twitter. He regularly lamb bastard. His predecessor Barrack Obama for wasting federal money tackling global climate change and as recently as two thousand fifteen he cooled the whole thing a hoax. All of this with the global warming and that a lot of it's a hoax. It's a hoax. I mean it's a money making industry. Okay. But then, just as we're starting to think with seeing patent Donald Trump before his many about tons of trying to throw us off the scent in two thousand nine for example, he signed an open letter that challenge diploma to come up with a more meaningful climate change policy will recently, his stowed, the importance of clean-air, and who can forget, those clean co comments while allowing measures that will undermine it often his framed, his stones as a business competitively issue right now. We're at the cleanest, we've ever been. That's very important to me. But if went clean, but every other place on earth is dirty. That's not so good. Of course, actions, speak louder than woods and ever since the now shamed and departed fossil fuel politics. Scott Pruitt was installed to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. We knew something was a mess, and no action speaks, louder than the decision to put after the Paris climate agreement. A huge blow even if many of the US's largest companies have found to continue following its rulebook. More recently, the assault on climate change has talked people working in government agencies pressuring staff to avoid using the words climate change in speeches. They have also been moved meant how scientific studies carried out by doing away with worst case scenario projections, and several members of Trump's inner circle are pushing to create a climate change panel. That will challenge environmental assessments, according to a recent New York Times report, the chasm between George H W Bush, and Trump may simply be a reflection of radically different times, the age of political decorum, and bipartisanship Bush, happily mentioned the Democrats in the room in that speech along gone. Meaning a compromise on the environment is unlikely. And then there are the people that Trump has chosen to surround himself with many of them, committed climate change deniers, just listen to this Arctic Council speech by secretary of state, Mike Pompeo earlier this month. Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance, it houses thirteen percent of the world's undiscovered oil thirty percent of its undiscovered gas and an abundance of uranium rare earth minerals gold diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped. Resources fisheries glory, dark, money donors, so competent, knee, described by New Yorker journalist, and Monaco, big interview, e Jane man, also doubtlessly have a part to play thanks to the Mercer's and the cokes, deep pockets among others, what was once fringe thinking is now part at the Republican mainstream and that includes the environment. We know that Trump and embrace of science quackery conspiracy theories doesn't have the best grasp of the facts, and whether it's someone who has the presidential ear distorted vision that the US will lose out to China, if it abandoned fossil fuels, despite the as in power moved to dominate the clean energy market, all simply watching too much FOX and friends, the whole climate crisis as they call. It is not only fake news. It's fake science. Remain be sure. But that also doesn't mean that we should doubt for one moment. The convictions of this administration. My administration is putting an end to the war on call for Monaco in New York. I'm as Docker.

Understanding climate change is all about the data, and that is a growing business from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Molly would. This week. The Trump administration took steps to limit climate science research, within government agencies. It will reduce the timeframe covered by US climate models and possibly stop, including some kinds of projections, like worst case scenarios. This is happening at a time when private industry is trying to increase climate intelligence in our new series how we survive we've been looking at how technology can help us adapt to an understand the risks of climate change and reliable data. Models are a huge part of that effort, Emily magic karate is founder and CEO of the climate data firm, four twenty-seven, which helps businesses determine how extreme weather could impact them and prepare for how to deal with it for many years with the scribe it ourself as comment at farm as well. The first thing for that position is to understand your risk. Right. And so that's really this fundation all data layer that we provide the only differences to private sector, Kohl's resilience and the. Governments Kool aid application. But it's, it's really all moving in the same direction of preparing for those impact. What do the the companies do after you've advised them? I mean, I imagined the simplest answer is don't buy their or don't build their depends. Right. If they already have, or they've already Bill, there's a range of things that they can do that includes sort of hardening from an engineering standpoint their facility, it can be working with insurance to make sure that they're well, covered in case of certain events and adaptation as we described it that will protect, not just this company's facilities versus another, but the entire community including the workers that leave nearby in the roads that bring goods and services. Right. So, whether it's well understood self-interest, or broader community interest. Everybody's better off before will protected. Do you feel like then the work that you do? Because there is this argument that, while the businesses that can afford your services are going to do fine, and everybody else is going to be left to the high water got dark in hurry. But it sounds like. You're saying you see that you see a broader benefit in working with these businesses and helping them adapt and stay where they are. Absolutely. We're seeing we do work with the very large corporations, and they have the power in the wherewithal to be huge influencers in their communities in their supply chains. We're also seeing some of our clients understanding that small businesses are actually going to be much more vulnerable. And so there's a role of local governments and financial institutions to help chunnel this information through smaller businesses are any companies coming to you sort of after the fact does Facebook know that they are going to be underwater in twenty years. I believe they know that. Yes. And we see some of everything we see a lot of companies coming right now, because their investors are asking questions and we see companies combing not so much here. But in Europe in Asia, there's a lot of regulatory pressure and sue both investors in corporations fully expect that they're going to be under regulation. In, in a matter of twelve months pretty much, Emily. Magic karate is founder and CEO of the climate data firm, four twenty seven. And now for some related links the New York Times reported Monday on the Trump administration's efforts to diminish the science around climate change and the kinds of reporting and modeling that previous US assessments have offered. We talked in a previous episode about how the eight country Arctic Council was unable to reach a consensus about its goals earlier this month, because the US delegation objected to climate change language at that meeting US secretary of state. Mike Pompeo, also characterized the Arctic diminishing ice levels as an opportunity for mining, more fossil fuels and said, it would open up new ocean passageways for commercial ships, but he didn't mention climate change in his speech. Scientists said the administration's efforts to undermine the science produced by the US government will paint and inaccurately rosy picture of the next twenty years or so, before significant warming really sets in one told the times that the effort, quote reminds me of the Soviet Union scientists all over the. World. Rely on US data for climate modeling and prediction. But maybe for investors and entrepreneurs moves to limit or downplay that information will only make private data more valuable, I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

In a changing climate. How can tech help us survive? It's a new series for marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Vimal change is here this week. We're launching ongoing coverage of how tech can help us adapt to it in a series. We're calling how we survive the change is evident in increasingly extreme weather all over the globe. A UN report last week said a million plant and animal species are on the verge of extinction. And warming is speeding that up and the UN's intergovernmental panel on climate change, the IPC said last year that our current rate of warming will cause fifty four trillion dollars in damages and that its effects will be increasingly deadly climate. Scientists say the trajectory is clear, I could write six more IPC assessments. They're all going to say the same thing. William Collins is a climate scientist at the Lawrence, Berkeley, National Laboratory, who has authored several such reports they're leading an very straight law. And and that's the reason why the scientists are eager to stop writing reports and start diving into creating solutions. So. Far much of the investment around climate change has been related to mitigation or slowing carbon emissions and reducing temperature rise that is not going away. But Collins and others are now talking much more seriously about adaptation, the data engineering and the technology to keep surviving in a changed climate. You can look sure people all day long about what they should do. I really wanna pivot from twenty people what they should do to showing them what they can do about a year ago Collins founded the environmental resilience exceleron or to start researching solutions for adapting to climate change. One of its first projects is taking a city block in Oakland and installing solar panels and grey water technologies charging stations for electric vehicles and seeing how that makes the area self sufficient in an increasingly uncertain environment for private investors climate adaptation is both an opportunity and an imperative Jayco is managing director of the private equity firm light Smith group, I and four. We need to recognize the climate change is a humanitarian disaster. So before we get to the how awesome is it to make money off of this part of the discussion, you know, let's just pause for moment. And recognize that this is a bad bad problem. Choas farm as one of the very few focus specifically on investing and adaptation technology. He says governments alone can't afford all the solutions that will need private money will have to fund companies to build new technologies or help transfer existing tech to cities and countries that need it. But he says we don't have all the answers yet part of the challenge here has been when most people try to imagine what adaptation means they think of giant sea walls around Manhattan or putting domes over cities or some kind of futuristic Jerry bruckheimer scenario, where nowhere near some of that technology. And in fact, co says the first step in adapting to climate change is what he calls climate intelligence understanding the scope of the problem predicting, it's impa-. Tacts and getting everyone to use the same data. So tomorrow on the show. We'll look at one intelligence gathering effort happening at the global level with a visit to NASA. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. And now for some related links. There is of course, so much to say about this topic. And honestly, our coverage is probably going to evolve along with the conversation. So first of all here's some of the nuts and bolts about how this series will work for the rest of the week. We're going to talk about the data gathering efforts the money some of the early tech. And why talking about climate adaptation is a little bit controversial after that. We'll have a story every two weeks at least until the fall. But obviously, this isn't a topic that is going away and over on our website. Marketplace tech dot org. We've got a little bit of a reading list to get you started MIT technology reviews. Latest issue is all about climate change mitigation and at station. It's got a ton of good information intact and one huge aspect of this conversation is one of our favorite topics on this show, the uneven distribution of technology, a WBU our story out of Boston last week talks about fears of. Quote, green gentrification as that city works to become more resilient to flooding and sea level rise late last month. The Environmental Protection Agency put out one hundred fifty page document telling local communities to start planning. Now for the fact that natural disasters across the country are going to get a lot worse. And that is a rare admission of the effects of climate change from the current US administration. In fact, last week, the intergovernmental Arctic Council, which is made up of eight Arctic countries and regional groups, including the United States couldn't reach a consensus after its latest meeting, reportedly because the US delegation didn't want its priorities statement to include language about climate change. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN. Over the past few months you've been hearing divided decade our year long project covering the great recession, and it's ongoing impact.

"Of change to get involved and tune into here. A new chapter it's going to be next week and as climate change marches on the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe leaving people in places like Greenland, Alaska, Canada and Russia to try to adapt. But as international Arctic Council convened this week to discuss cooperating on how to best protect their shared interest. Again, say climate change, the United States delegation. Let's say went in a different direction. He were that story and other short subjects and science. So if he Bushwick technology editor at scientific American high IRA good to see us, Lovie you to the so US secretary of state, the Mike Pompeo said some unexpected things that the Arctic Council this week, right? That's right. So the Arctic. Council normally voids for example, security issues, but he spoke about developing the Arctic and about how the opportunities that warming opened up for things like drilling and transportation through the Arctic and about how the US would be protecting its interest in those areas as opposed to signing onto a declaration that the other seven nations in the Arctic Council wanted to have a joint declaration saying essentially, we should combat climate change, and we should reduce black carbon emissions to do. So because he would not agree to the word climate change. That's what I need agreement right break. So they didn't sign an agreement for the first time in a long time. Yes, that's very very frustrating because it called klobuchar warming because it affects everyone across the globe, it affects Americans who live in Alaska, for example, where global warming is already having an effect. The Arctic is warming something like four times faster than the rest of the planet. And so in Alaska. For example, people who live there rely on frozen rivers for transportation during a big chunk of the year. And normally these frozen rivers star kind of melting and becoming unsafe for use.

"Dollars in tuition fee alone. This is something not all middle class families in China can afford. They definitely see a need to look for cheaper alternatives. Elsewhere across the world, which. Can get them similar experiences. So this is one issue, and I think apart from the cost issue. I think today's a heads the popularity of US colleges while further decline the geopolitical tension between Washington anti-beijing is one thing we need to consider here the US epidemic circle half and growing hostility towards China, especially some science programs. They no longer accept the Chinese students Chinese applicants they are expelling some Chinese researchers they alleged Chinese or stealing their knowledge so under has kind of circumstances. And there is no reason why US universities will become more popular for Chinese. So on the other hand, we noticed the rising popularity of the UK as nationally bitten last year. And this year, the UK has had a very big full word. Why is the U K become becoming more and more popular? I think it just like I said earlier the UK as probab-. A very good alternative to the us. A master's program in the UK is usually one year in the United States. It's usually two years evening London. The cost of one year study and a living will not exceed on four hundred thousand one I mean, be in the United States, you just need more than double that's money in order to gain a masters degree. So obviously by comparison, the UK represents a more cost effective option. And I think some other educational policies in UK are attractive as well. For example, the UK parliament has recently legislated to allow universities to roll out two year bachelor's program. We know in the U came bachelors are usually three years. The UK government is also simplifying the visa application process for students from China, some well-known universities, for example, university of Birmingham recognized China's Gokhale results. So I think these are all factors behi-. UK's growing popularity. Well, according to the report there seems to be a trend of diversification. In terms of Chinese students are going for example, Australia's group of eight universities are gaining more recognition and Canada, Germany, Japan and funds are also popular choices. Now. What does the diversification? Here tells us about Janis students. I think one thing we can tell from that is that is that Chinese students and Chinese parents are nowadays becoming more and more aware of what is a good university. What is good education? There are more knowledgeable. They have a wider vision. They know what kind of overseas educational experience. They are really looking forward to they have a basic knowledge basic understanding about what is going on across the world. So this is definitely a a progress. I was say this has come handing hands was China's opening wider as a whole country. And a but only on a hand steel, I think Canada, Germany, Japan, France, these countries we're talking about here. They're all developed countries. Dan, what about developing countries? Frankly, I think it is nearly impossible to persuade a Chinese middleclass family to send their children to steady in a developing country. Right. But because everybody wants to go to a better place, but only on a hand we we just need to remember that our country China has a growing business interests in the last developing world west about in a road initiative cetera, which means our country does need talents who knows about developing countries. So with that in mind, I don't think Chinese students are really fat diversified in terms of where to go to study. This is something our country our government as a whole need to think about in the in the future. And what about the choices this major that they want to study is not also? Becoming more diversified. Yeah. I think one thing that reported that report is pointing to is that when Chinese students they choose what subjects to major to study on their choices are less and less decided by personal interests. There seems to be a growing sense of prankul Madison in their choices. But this is not necessarily a a warring side a bad sign again. I think it has something to do with the middle class in today's China, you know, middle class they are anxious..

But in one thousand nine hundred seven it was a big blockbuster of a book came out during the most mulch financial period for Donald Trump turns out he lost so much money in the eighties. He was too poor to pay taxes. That's according to the New York Times piece, and he's he's obviously blamed his earliest bankruptcies on other factors the recession. What have you what he left out is that he ran his casino business into the ground in Atlantic City. He almost bankrupted New York City vis-a-vis the tax credits. He was afforded by the mayor for Trump Tower. And some of those other projects we know from this. Port. Donald Trump was nowhere close to being a wealthy man whole boat. What has the president's response to the New York Times report? He's not said anything which is unlike him, but his lawyer has been talking the lawyer says the report is inaccurate. But he's not specified, which parts are wrong. The New York Times does point out. This is how it sort of got the information on those tax returns. They didn't get actual copies of them. They relied on what are known as IRS transcripts the Internal Revenue Service which collects taxes every year has transcripts and those were obtained by the New York Times from a source. They say by legal means auditors the ones who check up on people to be sure they're filing taxes appropriately said that these documents are legitimate. And that's what they use to summarize tax returns. So what happens now because appears the president and congress are at an impasse of the release of his tax returns. Will the time story does a lot of things what it doesn't do is answer the questions that the House Democrats have regarding the last six years, we're talking. From twenty thirteen to the present day where Trump's tax returns are concerned. Why are they important? Well, congress wants to know whether Donald Trump is still making money on his businesses is he still profiting if he is he's breaking the law. He says he's passed those onto his sons in his daughter. We don't know that without looking at these are selves Treasury Secretary Mnuchin told congress his department has no plan to fulfill the committee's request, and that the Justice department would be issuing illegal opinion. Well, the guy who runs the Justice department is Bill bar. The attorney general who has already shut down congress this week refusing to testify regarding the mullahs report into Russian interference with the Trump campaign.

"I know you have been working on on a trade mechanism that can. I pass the US sanctions on Iran. So do you think they're gonna move ahead without? So far. We haven't seen the Europeans do anything serious. It's all they've only been dragging their feet. He many people in Iran believes that the Europeans have been honest all along and they want their by by Trump's man, some believed that the Europeans are too afraid. I'm their different views, but the important thing for Iran is that the Americans of impose illegal sanction, and you the Ryan's are biting abide by abiding by the international mitten and the Europeans have to make a decision either. They abide by their commitment, or they should just step aside. And Iran will make it decision. The US secretary of state. My pump hill has just cancelled a trip to Berlin to make Hannele schedule visit to Iraq. And he asked leaders there are to protect US troops in Iraq. So what do you think is his purpose of those trip? Upon paying wants to isolate Iran, but I think that the United States has politically isolated itself. The Iraqis just like Saudi Arabia because the photos have deporting ISIS and Al Qaeda for so many years, and they've helped destroy so much of your Iraqis have a very close relationship with Iran on the other hand because Iran helped them when back about was about the fall and the American didn't help them. So I'm paying us not really going to achieve much, but what is important is that countries should again to put pressure on the night and the Saudis in them are because the Saudi regime and the Emirati regime by quad printing with American blockade on Iran. They're only going to be caused them selves trouble. And I think that if ultimately there is tension in the Persian Gulf region. The first countries that are going to suffer are Saudi Arabia and the United. Emmerick well last week and see the United States is sending a series of messages to Iran. Besides the visit to Iraq. Also, the US deployed an aircraft carrier to the region and also a label Iran's revolutionary guard as a terrorist organization. So, and obviously, I think Iran is not backing down because of those mass Louis, but the problem is do you think the United States effecting ev- all to back down under the the maximum pressure policy?.

"Just said, actually, the United States. It seems to be the one nation the one single nation that is denying the global consensus on climate change. So what does he mean by that? This point from us, the Palmdale just a part of the the whole attitude from current American government towards the Monte natural corporation and those global governance and to we come find out that you and the real meaning behind these words in a kind of your natural action by United States. Also, we know so far United States should a very very on status on Saturday occasion about so many multi natural institutions, including United Nations and also WTO ever seen. So I think he is to some degree some mountain natural corporation. The face some facing some challenges of the forgotten how could the institutions to promote the efficiency. But of course, I think the precondition as we should keep you keep them. And then we will try to form them. Just what I go. What happened now for reform issue in the United Nations and the WTO, but I think the very very bad and the worst over as long attitude is just to give them up. And I so I think now that used to Palmdale and the United States why is that game I can shoot shoot a very very I mean bat attitude to any kind of a collaborative efforts from international community, well, actually compelled focused much of his speech on his concerns about the expending Chinese influence in the region and. Saying the region has become an arena of global power and competition. Well, first and foremost is this the occasion to discuss like security issues and 'bout power competition. I mean, what is the meeting? The Arctic Council actually about. Now, it's always the American government's behavior in ending kind of ocassion to stress the issue of security and the power competition twit some degree miss a pump HALE was to say, the two there will be some risk for ocular region to become a winner of power competition about I think the maybe the major player for any kind of apar- competition in architecture region onto some other regions in the world would be United States. So I said the now for this article comes so meeting the major purpose is how could all of the partners, including those optical countries to get a peaceful and also the peaceful or corporation and to deal with the major challenge of to change. So I don't think it's right to location for United States, and the Musa pump pale to you know, to evacuate their so called a Chinese influence in the region. Also, we know China so far as over the Arctic Council, and it's essentially the by most of the Arctic countries on also China take very very cautious. I mean policy towards these towards its Zo in article region. So I don't think they did not any costs or reason for United States to criticize China's behaviors the Arctic region and actually said did this is America's moment to stand up as an Arctic nation. What does that tell about it from administration's plan were strategy in the region recently? I think that the United States shoot a lot of ambition to. Play a more active actions in Arctic region. Also, you know, not even not now and the American government, you should have some strategies or some policies towards the Arctic region, including how some more military exercises and also to shoe a more existence of United States, not only immunitary way and also in some other ways.

"But now that can be increasing trade in. So the Russian government has as you said seized the opportunity opportunity, perhaps or CENA's them depending on your outlook. Because it it does seem as though Russia has not made much of an mansion in these plans of the impact upon the climate that it all might have an yet as you suggest. The thing is is part of the reason for why the jumping the idea right now. That's right. I mean, it's depending on how you look at it. It's an incredible opportunity or a looming crisis. So the melting ice in the Arctic is really an environmental disaster climate disaster in something that not even the negotiators in Warsaw this past week. Can manage to to stop? I mean, they put a plaster on on climate change. But it won't change or halt melting ice in the Arctic and full global trade. That's good. And and for for the for the globe as a whole. It's not very good at all. And but Russia, the Russian government the Kremlin has to despite all the things they are doing are not right. They have to get credit for at least being forward thinking and putting serious cash into infrastructure development. And it's a long coast. It's it's not a enormous numbers. If you if you look at how how much land has to be spent on but still it's a serious commitment. And by the way with increase after this first five year period it's affiliates. Sensitive time for Russia and its geopolitical ambitions at the moment. How how is this likely to factor into Russia's? Brought a a place in the world at the moment. So that is the question. And of course, it NATO within they so there is some concern about Russia's activities in the Arctic primarily, of course, it's its military activities, but any movement will be closely watched because Russia's perceived as having imperialist ambitions in its near abroad and and indeed farther away as as you can see in series. It's keen to to show its presence. So it's something that will be very closely watched including by China, which has a Arctic ambitions of its own. I mean, China is an associate member of the Arctic Council, which is really quite unusual for a country that doesn't is is really in terms of geography not in Arctic country. But then there's those that member of the Arctic Council a heavy investor threats companies in Greenland, which is then Denmark's Arctic region an island us, you know. So this this really boils down to very tight. It race. I think and it's something that that we as the west have to maybe we have to think about catching up we do here. An awful lot about sanctions hitting Russia. And if you were to look at the business pages on any given day might think oh, another bad news day, full Russia. They sort of counters doubt in a way, doesn't it? I mean, it's not to say that that Russia is not impacted by sanctions at all. Clearly, they this is a way for them to point out to the world that you know, you can you can throw sanctions at us. But look with still spending five point five trillion rubles way doing fine. That's exactly right. And it's as point out strategic communications at its best. Yeah. You can you can put a blacklist can impose sanctions, but we're still pursue a very Mbekis strategy. The Arctic will engage in Syria will block Ukrainian vessels in and in the Black Sea. And so. Fourth and you can't stop us. But in this case, it's it's really a more. It's it's longer term than any of those other engagements because this is really about. What they are. They look like look like when when the ice melts on all these ships travel from from Asia to Europe without having to spend the several days they have had to spend so far traveling the southern road the route. So it's it's really a a very interesting development to watch for the next five years and beyond to be continued Elizabeth, bro. Thank you for joining us here on the briefing..

"Sea, countries and companies around the world are buying those deposits trying to figure out if or when or how they might go after them Canada currently bans offshore oil and gas development, and it's part of the Arctic the US had a similar ban put in place by President Obama. But it was overturned by President Trump in fact in late October, the US gave provisional approval for a project off the North Slope of Alaska that could produce the first oil to be extracted from US Arctic federal waters, but the biggest investment put their show as in the Russian areas about twenty percent of the Russian cheapie. So he's coming from the Arctic curious terro says Russia is already extracting huge amounts of natural gas in northern Siberia, then liquefying it putting it into tankers and shipping it to Europe and Asia along. Northern sea route and fossil fuels aren't the only resources in the Arctic. There are also valuable minerals and metals do feel like there's a danger of profiting off of this kind of rolls up. That's what everybody tries to put me to.
