A Little Bit of Irony

This article in LiveScience titled "North Pole Could be Ice-Free This Summer" is truly distressing. Considering that the ice at the north pole has not melted during the span of human memory. It's just more evidence that global climate change (a.k.a. global warming) is real. But what really struck me was this passage:

Russia and other countries, meanwhile, have been arguing over who has rights to the region's resources, including potential oil reserves.

I wonder if I'm the only one who sees the irony in this.
