Treasure America ANWR Video is Out – Have a Look!

TAP_video.jpg3P followed the adventures of the Treasure America team this summer as we visited the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in search of economic arguments against opening the refuge to oil development. The project successfully showed that tourism and other locally born industry could be a more viable long term economic strategy than oil exploration. The second part of the project was to produce a video for the rest of America demonstrating that drilling in the refuge will do next to nothing for our economy, and ironically, NOT drilling is a better economic stimulator.

I’m happy to say the video is finally done, and it’s available for you right here. It’s a limited-quality version. If you are interested in helping to distribute a DVD-quality version please email me! Read on to launch the 12 minute video. Hope you enjoy it!
