One by one, each beaurocracy will meet up with an ever more powerful foe - accountability. in the first many decades of the Industrial age, companies were not held responsible for the health or even the deaths of their employees.
Churches are being held accountable. Now BP is being held accountable for it’s oil spill. Former employees are doing everything possible to escape pension plans.
Opening up the arctic to industry could result in polution like this worl has never seen before. Who will be accountable? It is estimated that any problems up there will cost 3 to 4 times more to clean up.
The number one foe of beaurocracies is wishing to tap the arctic is accountability. If we are to care for this planet, we need accountability.
