#2: We love watching John Phipps on Sunday mornings. He keeps us informed and better prepared for what's coming round the bend. This morning, at the very end of the show, right after he answered the gentleman writing in about the size of the U.S., Russia, Canada, etc., John spoke of a wealthy Chinese man who had bought up land in Iceland to build a hotel in preparation for shipping thru the Arctic from China to Europe. John said that the U.S. Navy has stated that all ice should be out of the Arctic by 2035. Can you send us more info on that or point us in the right direction to find out more about that? Great job!
