Arctic Cable Possible Due to Climate Change

For those of you who do not belive in climate change and global warming, you might consider the fact that businesses are busy planning to cope with, and take advantaage of, its effects.
Global warming has melted so much Arctic ice that a telecommunication group is moving forward with a project that was unthinkable just a few years ago: laying underwater fiber optic cable between Tokyo and London by way of the Northwest Passage.  The proposed system would nearly cut in half the time it takes to send messages from the United Kingdom to Asia, said Walt Ebell, CEO of Kodiak-Kenai Cable Co. The route is the shortest underwater path between Tokyo and London.
Please note that Mr. Ebell doesn't dney that climate change is happening!
