News from the Natural World: Putin employs squadrons of Polar Bears to search for oil in the Arctic. Vladimir Putin, the leader of the largest human country on the planet, has revealed a brand new strategy for oil exploration in the Arctic Circle. Russia has long seen the Arctic Circle as its property as well as a fertile hunting ground for fossil fuels and natural gas. It is one of the last truly unexplored regions on the planet and its oil, mineral and gas wealth are colossal. Climate change and the melting of the ice caps has made exploration easier in recent years as new routes open up. However, Russia still faces huge challenges in the quest for oil as the Arctic is a desolate icy land. But that is all about to change after Putin launched a brand new policy. For the first time ever Russia will use squadrons of Polar Bears to search for oil in the Arctic. Putin masterminded the new scheme himself after he had heard of reports of Polar Bears heading further south due to the melting of the ice caps. As the pack ice in the Arctic was melting, Russia’s Polar Bear population was being forced to head south in search of food and suitable hunting grounds. They were malnourished, starving and unable to hunt seals due to the fragmentation of the ice flows. Putin had a brain wave and knew this was the perfect opportunity to hunt for oil in the Arctic.
