ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts launched by oil companies to explore Arctic and sub-Arctic lands that will soon be exposed as global warming melts the polar ice. Shell has acquired leases to explore for oil in the Beaufort Sea situated off the northern coast of Alaska. The move of oil companies could destroy the environment and speed up global warming. It cites the profit potential of drilling areas that are no longer covered in permanent ice.
