Traditional Inuit:Save Alaska

By: Student 2

Save the Environment

Oil drilling could ruin the environment completely.


Cons of oil drilling
Cons of Oil Drilling

#1- Wildlife could be disturbed.

#2- Possibility that no oil will be found.

#3- It will highly disturb the environment.

Hunting and fishing
Hunting and Fishing

  • Many Inuit‘s hunt and fish for their main supply of food. Oil drilling could drive off or even kill the wildlife.


  • Oil is important but this oil( if there is any) could be saved for a reserve. Just getting to this oil could be a very long and expensive task.


  • Many Inuit's fish for food. If this oil somehow leaked into the rivers and lakes it could wipe out the entire population of fish. This could cause a food shortage.



  • Our government doesn't have the money to pay for the expenses of getting this oil. This could raise taxes even more.


  • The environment of Alaska is very fragile. The growing season is very short. Animals depend on plants for food. Oil drilling could kill many plants.


  • The people ( Inuits) that already live here would probably be very angry. They believe that the drilling for this oil would scare or kill all the animals off.


  • Alaska has hardly any paved roads so moving the oil but semis would be almost out of the picture. And making another pipe-line would take lots of time and money.

  • Even if they could find a way to move the oil it would take tons of gallons of fuel just hauling it. Not to mention the cost of that.

$4= 1 Gallon

  • Please vote against oil drilling in Alaska.
