When he began research for his new book, The Eskimo and the Oil Man, author Bob Reiss thought that he would affirm his belief that Arctic oil drilling needed to stop. But as he delved deeper into the myriad complexities surrounding the exploration for fossil fuels in northern Alaska, he eventually concluded that some drilling was OK. What changed his mind? This week on Sea Change Radio, the second part of our two-part series on the Arctic. This time we focus on the race to drill for oil in one of the last remaining pristine regions on the planet.
