Alaska whale hunters wary of oil drilling-“This place has been transformed because of oil.” Barrow, Alaska

Barrow, Alaska — Minutes after the hunters’ harpoon pierced the flesh of a bowhead whale, the  call went out. By cell phone and radio, Alaska whale hunters wary of oil drilling-“This place has been transformed because of oil.”  “The infrastructure that you see in Barrow is what was brought in by oil,”  Leavitt said. “Before the discovery of oil, there was no education  past eighth grade. This place has been transformed because of oil.” http://www.sfgate.com/nation/article/Alaska-whale-hunters-wary-of-oil-drilling-4062827.php

I guess Ollie Leavitt thinks it’s also time to bring “progress” to Indigenous tribe discovered in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest!
