Fossil Fuel Galore

"A quarter century ago, scientists warned that if we kept burning fossil fuel at current rates we’d melt the Arctic. The fossil fuel industry (and most everyone else in power) ignored those warnings, and what do you know: The Arctic is melting, to the extent that people now are planning to race yachts through the Northwest Passage, which until very recently required an icebreaker to navigate." New York Times, May 12, 2015. Midway-Sunset is currently the largest oil field in California. Aerial Image.
