At least Sarah Palin alerted us years ago to the fact that she can see Russia from Alaska...that way we can keep a close eye on those rooskie's Arctic Antics and make sure they don't get to the Buried Treasure first.

President Obama is in Alaska today for a meeting with world leaders about climate change in the Arctic.
He was met by hundreds of protesters challenging his decision to allow Shell Oil to drill in the Arctic – a move they say will greatly increase climate change, and is likely to result in difficult-to-access oil spills.
In Portland, a rally and march was held mid-day today in solidarity with the Alaskan activists.
The group Shell No! organized the event, which included a funeral procession and die-in for the Arctic at the federal building in downtown Portland. 9:07 minutes (12.52 MB)
For six years, the Unist'ot'en clan has maintained a camp to guard their traditional territory in what the Canadian State claims as northern "British Columbia."
The camp is located in a valley where several proposed fracked gas and tar sands oil pipelines would pass, and the camp's presence has thus far impeded their construction.
The Unist'ot'en are part of the Wet'suwet'en people, who occupy a large swath of unceded territory, whose aboriginal title has never been extinguished, and has even been affirmed by colonial Canadian courts.
