ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses aspects of drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean. The author notes that the Arctic Ocean, which contains an estimated 90 billion barrels of recoverable oil beneath its surface, is the oil and gas industry's final frontier, arguing that not enough is known about Arctic Ocean ecosystems to ensure animals, such as the walrus, will not be negatively impacted. An in-depth discussion on how drilling will affect animals and their prey is presented.
