Mike Pompeo Claims Rapidly Melting Arctic Sea Ice As A Good Thing

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday claimed that melting Arctic sea ice could actually be a good thing, as it will shorten sea voyages from Asia to the West by as much as three weeks.

In a speech at a meeting of the Arctic Council, Pompeo said that "steady reductions in sea ice are opening new passageways and new opportunities for trade." He said the Arctic region held undiscovered oil, gas, gold and diamonds.
