WWF thinks that the chance of any sort of accident during these poorly charted, ice-infested waters is high. There#8217;s no effective technology to wash up oil spills in ice, and little infrastructure in position to handle a major incident.
“This year we had the ocean-ice crash to some record low for June because it ongoing its downwards spiral. Losing ocean-ice isn#8217;t good news for Arctic species like polar bears, walrus and narwhal, as well as for Arctic people.”
