In this episode of the Backpacking Light Podcast, Andrew follows up with journalist Adam Federman about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Am I willing to temper my desire for the pristine with an awareness that the pristine is a cultural construct?
Jimmy Carter created the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in 1980, and it’s been a contentious subject ever since. A bonanza of biodiversity, the ANWR also potentially sits atop one of America’s last untapped oil reserves. In this episode, Andrew talks to Adam Federman, a journalist covering the recent push by the Trump administration to lease oil and gas rights in the refuge. Adam is a reporting fellow with Type Investigations, where he’s spent the last few years covering energy, public land, and the Trump administration’s environmental policies.
