Extreme Climate Change: What Does It Mean for Businesses?

Climate change may be coming, but so is a revolutionized business perspective. Companies like Nordic Bulk Carriers and Beluga Shipping, which is not currently operating, used to have to use the Suez Canal to ship its customers’ goods to places like Nigeria. Today, they have a much cheaper route: the Artic passages. The northern routes that had, for hundreds of years, remained evasive to explorers and caused the deaths of numerous intrepid researchers are now open for business, thanks to global warming. Nordic Bulk Carriers is able to save money and time by using this extreme northern route to and from China and the former Soviet Union – with occasional help of an ice breaker that ploughs a route by smashing up the melting artic ice. At the present time, however, it’s fairly clear sailing because of the ongoing melting of the ice caps.
