British Antarctic Survey oceanographer Dr Emily Shuckburgh will be featured on ‘Costing the Earth’ on BBC Radio Four at 9.00pm on Wednesday 2nd February. In 2010 the Canadian Arctic experienced its warmest year on record. Suddenly the area’s resources – oil, gas, iron ore, uranium, even diamonds – seem accessible.
