U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton boarded a research ship on Saturday to tour the Arctic, where the world’s big powers are vying for control of vast deposits of oil, gas and minerals that are becoming available as polar ice recedes.

She visited Tromso, a Norwegian town north of the Arctic Circle, in a once inaccessible region where resources are up for grabs.

“A lot of countries are looking at what will be the potential for exploration and extraction of natural resources as well as new sea lanes,” Clinton told reporters after taking a two-hour boat tour of the loc al fjord.

“We want to work with Norway and the Arctic Council to help manage these changes and to agree on what would be, in effect, the rules of the road in the Arctic, so new developments are economically sustainable and environmentally responsible,” she said on Friday before flying to Tromso.

On a blustery morning under gray skies, Clinton and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere stood aboard the deck of the “Helmer Hanssen” Arctic research vessel and gazed out at the fjord’s pristine waters and the surrounding snow-covered mountains.

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that beneath its unspoilt natural scenery, the Arctic holds about 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered conventional oil and 30 percent of its undiscovered natural gas.

As ice melts with climate change, Arctic sea passages are also opening for longer periods each year, cutting thousands of miles off trade routes between Europe and Asia.

“There are changes going on which (are) leading to the emergence of a region which used to be frozen both politically and climatically, and now there is a thaw,” Stoere told reporters after the boat tour.

Clinton, who is on an eight-day trip to Scandinavia, the Caucasus and Turkey, is the latest high-profile visitor to the Arctic as it enjoys unprecedented political and economic power.

Energy development costs could be twice as high as those of conventional onshore resources, but that has not stopped the oil industry’s big players from moving in.

Exxon Mobil is working with Russia’s Rosneft to develop blocks in the Kara Sea, off Siberia, despite the presence of sea ice for up to 300 days a year.

Russia’s Gazprom is working with Total of France and Norway’s Statoil on the 4 trillion cubic metre Shtokman gas field, 550 km offshore in the Barents Sea.

But the rush for oil and gas has brought condemnation from environmental campaigners who say the rights of local people could be trampled.

They say more aggressive action is needed on issues such as fishing quotas and international standards for oil and gas development to protect the pristine, delicate region.

Only about 4 million people live in Arctic areas, so local interest groups are weak, prompting fears of uncontrolled development – a challenge for the Arctic Council, the advisory forum of eight nations formed in 1996 to promote cooperation on the region.

The council is made up of the United States, Canada, Russia, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden and Denmark, which handles foreign affairs for Greenland, as well as groups representing indigenous people in the Arctic.

December 10, 2011

Tens of thousands of Russians gathered peacefully in central Moscow on Saturday to shout “Putin is a thief” and “Russiawithout Putin,” forcing the Kremlin to confront a level of public discontent that has not been seen here since Vladimir V. Putin first became president 12 years ago.

The crowd overflowed the square where it was held, forcing stragglers to climb trees or watch from the opposite riverbank, and organizers repeatedly cleared a footbridge out of fear it would collapse. It was the largest anti-Kremlin protest since the early 1990s.

The crowd united liberals, nationalists and Communists, a group best described as the urban middle class, so digitally connected that some were broadcasting the rally live using iPads held over their heads. The police estimated the crowd at 25,000 while organizers put the figure much higher, at 40,000 or more.

The rally was a significant moment in Russia’s political life, suggesting that the authorities have lost the power to control the national agenda. The event was too large to be edited out of the evening news, which does not report criticism of Mr. Putin, and was accompanied by smaller demonstrations dozens of other cities, including St. Petersburg.

The government calculated that it had no choice but to allow the events unfold. There was a large police presence, including rows of troop carriers, dump trucks and bulldozers, but remarkably when the crowd dispersed four hours later, no detentions had been reported.

On Saturday many in the crowd said the event was a watershed moment.

“People are just tired, they have already crossed all the boundaries,” said Yana Larionova, 26, a real estate agent. “You see all these people who are well dressed and earn a good salary, going out onto the streets on Saturday and saying, ‘No more.’ That’s when you know you need a change.”

Calls for protest have been mounting since parliamentary elections last Sunday, which domestic and international observers said were tainted by ballot-stuffing and fraud on behalf of Mr. Putin’s party, United Russia. But an equally crucial event, many said, was Mr. Putin’s announcement in September that he would run for the presidency in March. He is almost certain to win a six-year term, meaning he will have been Russia’s paramount leader for 18 years.

Yevgeniya Albats, editor of the New Times magazine, said that the gathering was the most striking display of grassroots democracy that she had seen in Russia, and that the involvement of young people was a game-changer. When Mr. Putin revealed his decision to return to the presidency, a full six months before presidential elections, she said, “this really, really humiliated the country.”

“Today we just proved that civil society does exist, that the middle class does exist and that this country is not lost,” Ms. Albats said.

The authorities had been trying to discourage attendance, saying that widespread protests could culminate in a disaster on the scale of the Soviet collapse, which occurred 20 years ago this month. Officials have portrayed the demonstrators as revolutionaries dedicated to a violent, Libya-style overthrow. Mr. Putin last week said that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had set off the wave of activism by publicly criticizing the conduct of the parliamentary elections.

“She set the tone for some actors in our country and gave them a signal,” Mr. Putin said. “They heard the signal and with the support of the U.S. State Department began active work.”

The demonstration’s organizers have put forward several demands: the immediate release of prisoners arrested last week in connection with the protests; the scheduling of new parliamentary elections; the ouster of Vladimir Y. Churov, who runs the Central Election Commission; investigation of election violations; the registration of so-called nonsystem opposition parties, ones that have been unable to win seats in Parliament or put forward presidential candidates.

Speakers said they would give the Kremlin two weeks to satisfy the demands, and hold another large protest on Dec. 24.

Aleksei Navalny, a popular blogger who has helped mobilize young Russians over the last year, sent an address from the prison where he is serving a 15-day sentence for resisting the police. Mr. Navalny was arrested Monday night after the first of three demonstrations.

“Everyone has the single most powerful weapon that we need — dignity, the feeling of self-respect,” read the address, which was delivered by a veteran opposition leader, Boris Y. Nemtsov. “It’s impossible to beat and arrest hundreds of thousands, millions. We have not even been intimidated. For some time, we were simply convinced that the life of toads and rats, the life of mute cattle, was the only way to win the reward of stability and economic growth.”

“We are not cattle or slaves,” he said. “We have voices and votes and we have the power to uphold them.”

The blogosphere has played a central role in mobilizing young Russians this fall. During the parliamentary campaign, Russians using smartphones filmed authority figures cajoling, bribing or offering money to their subordinates to get out the vote for United Russia. More video went online after Election Day, when many Russians in their 20s camped out in polling stations as amateur observers.

“The Putin system, over many years, repeats the same mistakes and ignores public opinion,” said Leonid Gigen, 26. “We have a lot of evidence. A lot was shot on video. And then Medvedev says these videos are fake,” a reference to President Dmitri A. Medvedev. “But people saw it themselves, because they voted.”

The ruling party, United Russia, lost ground in last Sunday’s election, securing 238 seats in the next Duma, compared with the 315, or 70 percent, that it holds now. The Communist Party won 92 seats; Just Russia won 64 seats; and the nationalist Liberal Democratic Party won 56 seats.

The vote had come to be seen as a referendum not only on United Russia but also on Mr. Putin and his plans to stay on as Russia’s paramount leader. Mr. Putin remains by far the country’s most popular political figure — the independent Levada Center reports his approval ratings at above 60 percent — but that approval has been diminishing gradually despite the authorities’ efforts to shore it up.

It seems unlikely that the authorities will accede to the protesters’ demands. A deputy chairman of Russia’s Central Election Commission told the Interfax news service that the final report on the election results was signed Friday, and that he saw no reason to annul them.

“The elections are declared valid, and there is no reason for any other assessment,” the official, Stanisav Vavilov, said. “There is no reason to revise the results of the elections.”

One of the few official remarks on the gathering on Saturday came from Andrei Isayev, the deputy secretary of the presidium of the general council of United Russia, who told demonstrators that they risked becoming “cannon fodder.”

“Do not allow yourself to become a pawn in the hands of those who want to destroy our country,” he said.

October 26th, 1947

10 + 26 +1+9+4+7 = 57 = her life lesson number

So perhaps Hillary Clinton (whose life lesson number is 57) will be of significance to the Russian protest situation on it’s 57 day (Saturday December 24th, 2011).

Wedding season for Bill and Hillary Clinton! Daughter Chelsea is walking down the aisle later this summer, but first up: a celebration of the upcoming marriage of Rep. Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, Hillary’s longtime personal aide.

The Clintons hosted a garden party Wednesday night at their Embassy Row home with more than 300 people, a sumptuous buffet of Mideastern food and a sign with the couple’s wedding date, “7-10-10,” near the pool.

“I have one daughter,” said the former president, pulling Chelsea into a hug. “But if I had a second daughter, it would Huma.”

The striking brunette, 34, has been working as Hillary’s right hand since 1996, and at her side through the Senate and presidential campaigns and move to the State Department last year. Abedin quietly started dating Weiner, 45, two years ago, and they announced their engagement last summer.

It was “love at first sight” for Weiner, Hillary told the crowd Wednesday. The Clintons encouraged the match between the Muslim beauty who grew up in Saudi Arabia and the Jewish Democrat from New York City. The couple represents, Bill said in his toast, what he wants “the future of the world to be.”

The party was filled with family, Clinton friends (Terry McAuliffe, Melanne Verveer, Bob Barnett), and plenty of pols including most of the New York delegation. Guests lingered late into the night, then the secretary of state left Thursday for a visit to Europe — the first State Department trip without Abedin, who stayed behind to finalize plans for the wedding.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and  Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, 18 March 

16:56 GMT, Thursday, 18 March 2010

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says there has been “substantial” progress on a new nuclear disarmament deal with Russia.

In Moscow, Mrs Clinton and Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov said a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (Start) should be finalised soon.

The nations are trying to replace the 1991 Start that expired in December.

Mrs Clinton is attending two days of talks in Moscow, including a key meeting on the Middle East on Friday.

Iran is also a major issue, with the US and Russia publicly disagreeing on the planned opening of an Iranian nuclear power station.

Quartet meeting

Russian Foreign Minister Mr Lavrov said at a joint press conference with Mrs Clinton that Moscow and Washington were in the final stage of a new Start.

Mrs Clinton said: “The results of the latest negotiation rounds lead us to believe we’ll be reaching a final agreement soon.”

The US is said to have more than 2,000 nuclear weapons, while Russia is believed to have nearly 3,000. Both sides have agreed to cut the number of warheads they hold to between 1,500 and 1,675 each.

But there have been disagreements on verification measures, how to count weapons and launch systems.

Mrs Clinton said in the past year the US and Russia had worked hard to “reset” damaged bilateral relations.

The BBC’s Rupert Wingfield-Hayes in Moscow says that although no date was given, it looks likely the new Start will be signed before President Barack Obama hosts a big nuclear disarmament conference in April.

Our correspondent says relations between Russia and the US are much better than a year ago, but Mr Obama still has little concrete to show from the “reset” policy and badly needs the new treaty.

Mrs Clinton arrived in Moscow on Wednesday for talks on Thursday and Friday.

She will be joined by US Middle East envoy George Mitchell on Friday when talks take place between the Mid-East Quartet – the US, Russia, the UN and EU – with the current row over Israeli settlement plans for Jerusalem a key issue.

US officials have confirmed Mrs Clinton has added a meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Friday as part of her visit. She is already meeting President Dmitry Medvedev.

The Iranian nuclear issue is likely to be high on her agenda.

On Thursday, Mr Putin said Iran’s first nuclear power plant, which Russia is building at Bushehr, could come on line as early as this summer.

At the Moscow news conference, Mrs Clinton said Iran was entitled to nuclear energy but that it had failed to give the world reassurances on the nuclear weapons issue.

She said: “In the absence of those reassurances, we think it would be premature to go forward with any project at this time.”

Mr Lavrov insisted the Bushehr plant played a special role in “ensuring that Iran is complying with its non-proliferation obligations”.

Iran denies pursuing nuclear weapons, saying its programme is for purely peaceful, energy purposes.

On the Middle East, the Quartet will on Friday discuss the peace process, which has been damaged by the settlements row.

The crisis erupted last week when Israel announced the construction of 1,600 more homes in East Jerusalem just as US Vice-President Joe Biden was making a high-profile visit to the region.

The US was infuriated and officials say Mrs Clinton is still awaiting a call from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to clarify Israel’s response.

Asked about the call at the news conference, Mrs Clinton said: “When I have anything to say, I’ll inform you.”

All numbers are estimates because exact numbers are top secret.
Strategic nuclear warheads are designed to target cities, missile locations and military headquarters as part of a strategic plan.
Israel
Israeli authorities have never confirmed or denied the country has nuclear weapons.
North Korea
The highly secretive state claims it has nuclear weapons, but there is no information in the public domain that proves this.
Iran
The International Atomic Energy Agency reported in 2003 there had been covert nuclear activity to make fissile material and continues to monitor Tehran’s nuclear programme.
Syria
US officials have claimed it is covertly seeking nuclear weapons.

She is well-known and well-liked by her international colleagues and audiences. As Joe Klein of Time magazine put it: “She is an international celebrity with a much higher profile than any of her recent predecessors and the ability – second only to the President’s – to change negative attitudes about the US abroad.”
