ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a contention between U.S. environmental and political groups over the issue of oil drilling approval for the Chukchi and Beaufort seas of the Arctic Ocean in 2011. Environmentalists are pessimistic about the possible outcome of the battle. Green groups have launched an aggressive media campaign highlighting the dangers associated with Arctic drilling. Drilling is expected to create thousands of jobs which will benefit the image of President Barack Obama.
