Fueling Change: Oil Extraction In Alaska & California

The global demand for oil and gas has long-lasting impacts on the communities that supply it. In Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, powerful native communities are at odds over an oil exploration and drilling plan that will boost their economy but have long-term consequences on native species and their environment. In California's Kern County, the mayors of two neighboring towns face off on the economic benefits and health risks of oil production and their vastly different visions for the most sustainable path to the future.
