Trump finalizes oil and gas drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

It was announced on Monday that Trump administration would open up 1.5 million acres of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil and gas drilling, from the whole refuge area of 19.3 million acres. 

The administration promises that this decision will lead to more jobs and help further eradicating unemployment crises, but green groups and wildlife activists argued that this will be harmful to the animals inhabited there and would worsen environmental conditions. The animals found in the aforementioned region are grizzly bears, polar bears, gray wolves, caribou, and arctic foxes. 

Whereas “This plan will not only harm caribou, polar bears, and other wildlife, it is foolish in the face of rapidly advancing climate change,” said a statement from the Center for Western Priorities executive director Jennifer Rokala. 

“Oil companies will have to harden their infrastructure to withstand melting permafrost and rising seas, leading to an even greater impact. Essentially, Bernhardt is approving a plan Reporters were told that “Over the course of this oil and gas program, it could create thousands of new jobs and generate tens of billions of dollars,” by the Interior Secretary David Bernhardt.  

“We understand that Alaska has earned an almost mythological place in the minds of many Americans,” they wrote in The Wall Street Journal. “But we cannot be treated like a snow globe, to be placed on the shelf for viewing pleasure only.”

On the other hand, the government is hoping for a better future with this decision and promising it’s fruitfulness, while on the other hand, the potential damage to wildlife justifies the backlash it’s been receiving.

This statement was given by Lena Moffitt, the Sierra Club’s senior director of it’s Our Wild America campaign, “The Trump administration’s so-called review process for their shameless sell-off of the Arctic Refuge has been a sham from the start. We’ll see them in court.’’ 

Adam Kolton, executive director of the Alaska Wilderness League, stated that the administration ignored science and the law in making this decision. 

Kolton reportedly said, “Our climate is in crisis, oil prices have cratered, and major banks are pulling out of Arctic financing right and left. And yet the Trump administration continues its race to liquidate our nation’s last great wilderness, putting at risk the indigenous peoples and iconic wildlife that depend on it, we will continue to fight this at every turn, in the courts, in Congress, and in the corporate boardrooms.” 

According to these statements, there’ll be legal challenges to face for the government, and there has also been debate about how much oil sits beneath the refuge, which is thought to be the largest untapped trove of onshore oil in the U.S., no one can be sure if this would even be profitable.

Believe it or not, human minds have a weird way of action. We never know what it’s planning and how it responds. There’s a possibility that we may never know it in its full functionality. Rightly so, who doesn’t love peace and ambience? And the very thought of stress, indeed stresses us out. But there’s always light at the end of the tunnel and the thereby research has it that stress can be the new social motivation that you need.

Under all the negative aspects of stress lies a special benefit that could take you by awe. The research that was recently published in the journal Stress & Health stressed on the fact that experiencing stress in workplaces or everyday lives made people both more susceptible to both asking for as well as lending out social support. This sparks an unbreakable bond of gratitude and support among various individuals which helps people strive out of the toxic environment. Also, the extended support helped people to finally come out of the feeling of extreme stress and strain.

Stressors that promote the feeling of desperation and helplessness can be varied. From arguments with someone we love and care or at workplaces to stressful events at work or school to major disapprovals at home, there are many factors. But whatever be the cause of the stress, the aftermath is almost similar. The researchers agree on the fact that on average, participants of the research were more than twice as likely to either give away or receive some sort of emotional support during times that they experienced a stressor. This has been invariably linked to most of human behaviour.

In the study, it was asserted that women, in general, were more inclined towards engaging in more giving and receiving emotional support than their counterparts. Men were supposedly less supportive in terms of their counterparts. Though affirmative, the researchers were surprised that stress was linked to people not just wanting to get emotional support, but giving it as well. Hence though stress is often not the most positive feeling yet it still has the power to drive people towards attaining somewhat emotional closures and support and at the end, this is what that matters.
