Government Reference and International Publications of the Center For World Indigenous Studies :

Excerpt: the Alaska Eskimo Whaling commission feels that a Seasonal Drilling Restriction on industrial activity in both State and Federal offshore waters is necessary for the protection of the Bowhead Whale population and the traditional subsistence whale hunt; AND Whereas the State is currently reviewing its 1986 Beaufort Sea Seasonal Drilling Policy, Minerals Management Service has proposed the removal of seasonal drilling restrictions imposed on offshore tracts previously leased in Beaufort Sea Sales BF, 71, and 87, and the Minerals Management Service chose not to include any seasonal drilling restriction in the most recent Beaufort Sea Sale 97, despite the objections of the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission, the North Slope Borough, and the State of Alaska; AND Whereas recent State and Federal reports criticizing industry's failure to adequately respond to and clean up oil spills in Cook Inlet heightens our concern that the oil industry is not capable of responding to and cleaning up significant oil spills in the more harsh Arctic environment; AND Whereas the North Slope Borough has taken the position in the ongoing State seasonal drilling review that the 2 threat of an oil spill as well as recent data on effects of industrial noise on Bowhead whales is grounds for the imposition of a more restrictive seasonal drilling policy; now therefore be it resolved that ISI supports the North Slope Borough in opposing the removal by Minerals Management Service of any seasonal drilling restrictions imposed on previously leased Beaufort Sea tracts.
