US Censors Arctic Scientists’ Findings as it Prepares for Oil and Gas Auction

The United States has blocked the release of a landmark assessment of oil and gas activity in the Arctic as it prepares to sell off exploration licences for the frozen Chukchi Sea off Alaska, one of the last intact habitats of the polar bear.
A draft of the censored recommendations, seen by The Independent, called on governments to conduct proper research on environmental impacts before signing off new oil and gas projects in ecologically sensitive areas such as the Chukchi.
Environmental impacts or filling up the SUVes? It looks our government is going with the SUV (and company profits).

Drive them while you have them. In a few years - we'll all be sorry!
