Alaskan Vicious Circle

This article is meant to raise awareness about new drilling sites that are being planned to be built in Alaska. Alaska, as a state needs more money. In order to create more money, its governor wants to create more drilling platforms. This is a definite problem because Alaska is already subject to global warming's effects. Creating more drills only increases the amount pollution that will be created. Alaska needs more money to evacuate a town which is affected by the rising see levels.
Personally, I think this is very stupid of the government. Creating more oil platforms only increases the sea levels even more. This is a vicious circle and it seems as though the governor is perfectly aware of this.
