Obama seeking more icebreakers for Arctic ice that is supposedly disappearing

_________________________________________________________________________
President Barack Obama wants to speed up the acquisition and building of new Coast Guard icebreakers that that can operate year-round in the nation’s polar regions, according to The New York Times.
