US Coast Guard gets ready for a climate change

From the US Coast Guard itself:

Ever think the USCG would have permanent bases in the Arctic?

You can read more about the Coast Guard base in Barrow here.

To quote Adm. Gene Brooks, Cmdr. of the Coast Guard in Alaska:

""Because the multi-year polar sea ice has receded, this is water longer than it's ever been, which means that all maritime activities that can occur anywhere else -- Savannah, New Orleans -- can now occur here for longer periods of time, and they are coming, (...) We have to prepare for the world coming to the Arctic."
