      Negotiate an agreement. A fair passage fee for establishment of safety sites, icebreakers, aircraft and personnel paid to Canada would be appropriate for this one-of-a-kind shortcut. Unlike other bottlenecks to shipping and tourism on earth, the Arctic mandates special consideration, it's an unforgiving environment. Expenses can range from high to catastrophic; fees to cover said costs seem reasonable. Pissing off our neighbors to the North by rash behavior seems unreasonable. A possible negotiation point might include all Arctic border countries sharing the expense of setting up the necessary infrastructure initially then paying a smallish token fee thereafter. Russia maintains year-round passage over the top of their northern coast, they have cost figures associated with their work. Check them out?

          This is the reason why Turkey is building a channel that is going to replace the Bosfures. They are going to re-direct commerisial traffic via it (for a fee) and leave the rest to the old route.

                It's not like we can choose or not choose climate change.

                  I use to be a conservative democrat and over the years I was fed up with the democrats and republicans and their constant fighting. As far as I am concerned Pelosi is a total nutcake and her attack of President Trump is illegal, wasting time and money when the United States of America has more important issues however if anyone should be impeached it should be Pelosi, Adam Schiff and his thugs who do not care about the United States of America. For your information President Trump is on the right track regarding immigration and NATO and American citizens are sick and tired of footing the bill for NATO and other political organizarions. For the record Speaker of the House Pelosi should be impeached along with the rest of her leftwing Commie Sympathizing Goons. The democrats have to respect the office of the President and work with President Trump to keep America as the worlds leader of democracy. I like President Trump and he may not be perfect however he's doeing a good job at keeping America strong and stopping China from displacing America as the worlds leading nation. For a fact China and Russia have not changed since the end of WW2 and if China and Russia had their way the United States of America would be a defeated nation. As long as the United States of America maintains it's US Navy, US Marines, US Army, US Air Force and US Coast Guard we cannot be defeated. However the Chinese must be brought to account for it's thievery and predatory theft of other nations resouces such as intenational theft of other nations fishing stocks and natural rescources. Most important China must banned from the Arctic Commision and not be allowed to navigate the Northwest Passage in Alaska and Canada period. These waters belong to the USA and Canada and if you left the Chinese in Northwest Passage they will pollute and rape the fishing stocks and try to steal land from other nations. Presently China is the only nation in the world that polluted, raped and decimated their entire fishing stocks of the entire Chinese coast. Since than the Chinese became actively engaged in the world-world piracy of poaching of international fising stocks from every small nation to weak to fight and defend their coastlines. China has become a world-wide predatory lender worse than the Mafia and Russian Loan Sharks. We must work hard to stop Chinas Island building and bribing officials of small nations in the south pacific region to steal their land. The Chinese have become the scourge of the world with their International thievery and theft of other nations natural resources!!!

                      USA: what are you gonna do about it?
                      Canada: umm... gulp... well we're willing to let it slide this time (slowly backs out of room)

                                Your premise that pacific islands are going to drown because of arctic ice melting is JUST PLAIN WRONG. Arctic ice floats over the ocean, when it melts there is ZERO rise in sea level. If you want to see real life proof of this, simply fill a glass of water and then put a large ice block in it. You will see as the ice melts the glass does not overflow. Basic science.

                                        It doesn't matter if the world heats up. Theres good land to move as the ice melts and technology to stay in the harsh ones that start to cook.
                                        As far as loss of life by global warming as you claim: Human life doesn't matter to governments and most people since in America alone 80,000,000 of our people have been aborted and New York says you can kill the baby after its born. Dont even talk about loss of life especially when people have to go to war for the Bankers and their global ambitions.

                                            sea levels were 400ft lower at the peak of the last ice age. any additional sea level rise at this point would be completely insignificant.

                                                Everyone talking about how Canada could abuse this waterway if it's not made international... But, lets be honest here, Canada is waayyy too nice to do that.

                                                  Up to 250 K deaths a year from climate change? Who comes up with this shit? Oh, and forty years ago they said all the sea Ice was going to have melted by 20 years ago, so maybe if we keep saying it is going to happen in 40 or 50 years it's finally going to happen. I guess people still believe in the coming of some Devine savior/ redeemer or prophet. We all gotta believe in something, I guess.

                                                      We should be allowed to tax countries with a fee just like the suez and panama canal. We'll use the funds to build rescue bases in the remote north. Also on the condition ports like Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal get more cargo off loaded in their ports.

                                                            Making the point that a 13 degree rise will cost only money and a few lives, you might better point out the millions of species being destroyed by fossil fuel use and development, including the acidification of the ocean leading to reefs (the hatcheries of thousands of species of fish and other sea life) disappearing . . . not to mention the flooding of land masses, including most of southern Florida. The ocean is already acidified 30% higher than it was previously. Counting climate change in terms of dollars is patheticly shortsighted.

You decide who will use it for now on.

                                                                                                ships can just as easily spend the extra 12 hours and go around our islands. they trek through them, and we will arrest them and send their ass home on a bus.
                                                                                                they provide no one ocean access.
                                                                                                shortening shipping routes should be, and IS seen as a future profit model. and if America stood to profit from such a scenario, something tells me you'd be against foreign ships floating freely through your sovereign territory too. even if we were fully developed up there, I'd still argue against it.
                                                                                                We will allow all nations, bar the ones America has sanctions on because we don't want end up like Hauwei's CFO now do we?

                                                                                                If you think we should not be allowed to charge for those basic services, than we Will arrest anyone we catch, and we will go out of our way to dredge up dirt, sand and clay and start connecting those islands, cutting off access for any ships.
