New paper – AGW sooners, stake your “drill baby drill” ice free claims now!

New paper – AGW sooners, stake your “drill baby drill” ice free claims now!” Anthony Watts pastes the abstract of a presumptuous paper that shows policy analysts are thinking about the territorial implications of climate change in the Arctic: After the Ice Melts: Conflict Resolution and the International Scramble for Natural Resources in the Arctic Circle.

They aren’t as scientifically careful as climatologists because they aren’t climatologists. I bet statements like this get under Anthony’s skin: “It is a well-known fact that global warming is melting the Arctic ice cap.” I urge Anthony to send a strongly worded letter to the author.
