"Iceland, Canada, Russia, and other far-north locales could see more population growth and commercial activity than even Brazil or China. A number of factors are behind this: Surging populations of job seekers in the developing world; falling populations in the northern countries; growing global demand for oil and other resources; and melting of Arctic permafrost, which would likely hasten human immigration into, and commerce throughout, the region."
