ABSTRACT
This article discusses the debate over oil exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). The debate needs to elevate itself above the bogus symbology of two fanciful views. Some imagine that the government is about to sully a 19 million acre, perfectly wild, public set-aside. Others, the oil industry and its advocates, suggest that this place in the far north is too big, too remote, or too empty to suffer effects from human incursion. For environmentalists, the challenge is to understand the complexities of worldwide energy dependence, that no place in the world is a pristine refuge, that ANWR is already affected by global warming and, following years of atmospheric testing, by radiation fallout carried by polar air currents, and that it has been occupied for eons by indigenous people who hold differing opinions about its best disposition.
