It’s jarring to be in land where there’s no sign of humans. No bridges, no trails, no roads, no signs, no structures. And then after like 30-seconds, it’s really, really cool. Calming. Awe-inspiring. Sensational.
The Arctic Refuge boasts natural wonders and few signs of humans, which is unique on Earth today. The porcupine caribou give birth to their young on the vast coastal plain every spring. Most importantly, the Gwich’in people live off of the land surrounding the Refuge. They are one with the caribou herd.
Imagine this place cut up with roads. With methane flares. With trash, like big, industrial trash you see in other extraction sites. With potential oil spills into the Beaufort Sea.
I’ll keep getting my feet wet for as long as it takes to protect the Arctic Refuge from oil extraction.
Here’s a link to ask your Representative to vote YES on HR 1146 to stop oil leases. https://pat.ag/AWArcticCG Vote happening this July. #protectthearcticrefuge
