S2 Ep 28: Protect the Arctic Part 1 w/ Bernadette Demientieff

Protect the Arctic is a special 3 part series on The Coolest Show. We are covering the urgency to preserve the Arctic Refuge from the Trump administration’s efforts to expand oil and gas development. Their plan is to lease 1.6 million acres on the Coastal Plains of the Arctic Refuge before the end of the year, and the plan must be stopped. This episode is Part 1 of the series and features Bernadette Demientieff, the Executive Director of the Gwich’in Steering Committee. She discusses the Gwich’in people’s way of life and strong opposition to drilling in the Arctic. . Part 2 features Chad Brown, the founder of Soul River Inc. In Part 3 we speak to Isaiah Horace, a member of the Youth Council of the Gwich’in Steering Committee.
