Drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge?

This is what Yr13 will be thinking about over the next few lessons and they (and anyone else) can explore the issue in more detail with Google Earth...

If you click on the picture below, it will take you to the site of the Sierra Club (an environmental group) where you can download a Google Earth tour of the region, together with images, video, and some important questions to consider. BE WARNED THOUGH... "The Whole Enchilada" is a very very big file... Although it didn't take very long to download, it made my computer (which isn't top of the range and modern, but isn't that old...) run very slowly - it might be wise to download the individual files.

(Don't forget - people put things on the internet for lots of different reasons... what you see on the Sierra Club site might not be the whole story!)
