    Watch the second session of the Arctic Speaker Series.  The series is designed to provide important information on critical political, environmental, economic, and governance developments in the Arctic.  This particular session gathers leading environmental scientists and U.S. government officials to examine the dramatic environmental changes confronting the Arctic region and their implications for Arctic and non-Arctic states alike.  What are the environmental, economic, and security consequences of the rapidly melting ice in the High North?  How will this phenomenon affect Arctic and non-Arctic actors?
