Mayor of Point Hope, Alaska:
The mayor and other
residents of Point Hope, Alaska share their concerns about Shell's offshore
drilling plans in the Arctic. Residents of this town, also known as
"Tikigaq," have survived for generations off the bounty of the
Chukchi Sea, which is now threatened by pollution, noise, and the risk of an
oil spill that would come with offshore drilling.Gepubliceerd op 31.07.2012
