Some of the first words from Heimo say a lot, "Only national wildlife refuge with polar bear ... gotten a lot of media attention cause they want to drill for oil here ... eventually they just want to get people out of the land here."
Who could possibly defend this place from loggers, oil seekers, fur traders, etc. The law and then the weather keep most at bay. Would Heimo have a say? If no one lived in a place that no one visited, then would we exploit the resources there? It is possible to change the law?
The US National Park System was created but has not been perfected. We deserve stronger environmental laws. Think about this next time you vote for a politician.
