A continuation of the scorched earth policy . . . the author, Dan Sullivan is a lawyer and a Republican hack that, it appears, cares little about the environment and more about raping the Alaska wilderness for the benefit of large oil corporations at the expense of leaving it unspoiled for future generations.

Hopefully this enormous resource base of conventional oil and gas that the U.S. still has can be used to ween us off our current foreign crude oil addiction.
