I suspect your inbox is probably flooded, but if you find it possible to answer my question is this: why is it a bad thing to resume drilling in the Arctic if the oil is going to be claimed anyways? I personally would rather see my own country profit from it than Norway, Denmark, the UK, Russia, and other foreign nations. While I 100% agree with you on the other topics, and I even acknowledge the dangers and detriments to the environment that Arctic drilling will have, it's not like other nations are simply going to let it sit untapped. Though perhaps I am misunderstanding something, which is in fact why I'm asking the question. I'm no fan of Trump, but I don't think he's wrong in this particular decision, at least given my current level of understanding on the issue.
