The article focuses on various issues related to sustainability. A Verdantix report cites a forecast that by 2025 the Arctic region could rival the opportunities for investment in oil and natural gas exploration seen in other resource-rich markets due to rising global temperatures. Amateur cycling enthusiast Izhar Gafni invented an adult-sized, environment-friendly bicycle made of cardboard that can carry almost 500 pounds and costs as little as 20 U.S. dollars.
