Geosc 10 Tuesday, April 27th, 1999 Announcements: Final exam is Tuesday, May 4th at 10:10 in 112 Kern Building Lecture notes: I. ANWR (The American National Wildlife Refuge) A. In the 1950's, northern Alaska was protected by the ANWR; no one can build houses, complexes, factories, etc. B. The ANWR Coastal Plain is about 1.5 million acres; just a little bigger than the state of Delaware C. The area has possibly the last bunch of "good oil" but the area also has possibly the last major part of wilderness in Alaska D. May 1995, Alaska promised $2.6 billion to the US government if they allowed Alaska to drill in the ANWR Coastal Plain; however Clinton vetoed any such bill that passed this II. Arguments the drilling industry has for wanting to drill in the ANWR Coastal Plain A. Less than 1% of the land would even be affected B. Oil production in the ANWR Coastal Plain area would significantly increase the gross national product therefore there would be less reliance on the part of the US government on foreign oil C. By drilling oil in this area approximately 700,000 jobs would be created

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
