The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is sacred -- not only to the Gwich'in, but to millions of Americans who have time and time again voiced their steadfast support of permanent protection of the Refuge.

Noted Cal. Had a hard time getting to the site. The Arctic and all species who have adapted to it, are in serious trouble climate wise, regardless of "Refuge" status. There is no permanent protection against this climate change, nor how desperate humans and other species will become to survive.

This is quite an important issue and should concern us all. Thank you.

We need to protect all our national parks and all the wilderness everywhere. We can't afford not to.

Every ecosystem is linked to every ecosystem! We forget that all too often....based on greed and over-population.

In this way, we are living with the understanding that there is a balance to life and that we must take care of and respect the land and animals.

Let us Live with this understanding.

Nice article, noted, Thank you Cal.
