257: East by North by West

Climate conditions are rapidly changing, opening sea routes to major development, shipping, and underwater cable systems. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will describe the complicated system of cable and new developments which will link some of the remotest places on the planet. And he will remind us that along with the contributions to globalization there are destructive impacts to the ocean, which plays such an unexpected role in the communications nexus.
