You probably know that climate change is melting Arctic ice with astonishing speed. While some hear a warning bell, others see a business opportunity and as the ice disappears, oil companies and fishing fleets are moving further north than ever before, keen to exploit the unexplored ocean opening up at the top of the world.

We knew that Shell had tried to extend its deadline and got a NO for an answer.  We knew Shell was going to be wrapping up and leaving soon – but this?
