In August of 2019, Michael Gungor, Science Mike, William Matthews and Jamie Lee Finch embarked on a trip to the Arctic circle to experience some of the last untouched wilderness on the planet and hear from the Gwich’in, the Athabaskan-speaking Indigenous peoples who live in the Arctic region of Alaska and Canada. Their sacred lands include areas within the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. On their trip, this group learned that the push to drill in the Arctic Refuge is as much about human rights as it is about our world’s dependence on fossil fuels.
Systemic racism, the climate crisis and corporate greed are all at play in the Arctic Refuge, making this one of the most significant human rights stories of our time.
