This will work for as long as the world has enough oil to meet demand. Eventually as oil becomes a more scarce resource, someone will explore for oil there.

This is great news, to me it's in the same category as drilling off the north slope of Alaska. There's just no reason to allow it. I did my PhD on Greenland.

I'm not sure why their cover photo for this story is a photo of Polarstern in the sea ice north of Norway...
