The US needs to get off of its butt and approve and build the pipeline... or build the pipeline and seek approvals later....

Get it to market anyway you can. The northwest passage has been talked about for many years now and with modern ice breaking vessels assisting could provide a viable route.

A little more global warming will open the Arctic to limited shipping, but also will melt the humongous ice cap in Greenland and flood properties worldwide that are less than about 20 or 30 feet above current sea levels.
