The Arctic National Wildlife refuge is one of the last intact landscapes in America, and home to 37 species of land mammals, 8 marine mammals, 42 fish species, and more than 200 migratory bird species. President Bush once said that America is addicted to oil. The same is true for other countries. While we do not seek out alternative resources, our addiction and need is ever-present. This book examines issues related to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Oil related activities such as seismic testing, and aircraft and vehicle noise can drive local species into ruin. This book looks at both sides, providing students with a balanced understanding of the need for oil and what prices there are to be paid in the pursuit of obtaining it. Includes primary and secondary sources from a variety of perspectives; eyewitnesses, scientific journals, government officials, and many others.
