Re: your article in the June 27 edition titled “Frozen Treasure Trove — Under the Arctic Ocean, a great sea of oil awaits” (page 16), President Obama’s State Department is giving away seven resource-rich American Alaskan islands to the Russians. Along with the islands go hundreds of thousands of square miles of seabeds with billions of barrels of oil and millions of pounds of fish.
The Alaska Legislature has repeatedly called for an end to the giveaway. But the State Department has not reversed its plans. More pressure is needed from the rest of the country.
