Why the Northernmost Town in America Exists

    I hope you enjoyed this first on-location video! If you want to see more involved projects like this more often, be sure to check out the sponsor (Squarespace) with the link in the description. They truly made this possible and they're a committed sponsor. I've also used them for years before they became a sponsor so all the praise I give them is 100% true.

    The name of the town is Utqiagvik!!!!!! Seriously you sound like a post modern Soyboy, stop drinking in so much soy-aid. Your presentation of this is so politically biased and sounds more like a PSA from the 80’s funded by GE to usher in the new International Carbon Currency, which is a bunch of socialistic mumbojumbo.... a category in which this diaeresis evenly falls into...



    Sounds like these are people who would never vote for someone like Trump.

    Nicely done! I spent my last 2 or 3 months of medical school living there and volunteering at their clinic and doing helicopter and bush plane rescues and clinic visits in the North Slope villages in the mid 1980's. It was the most exciting and rewarding few months of my life. No instrument navigation or GPS, no cell phones, only satellite and HAM radio. Polar bear warnings, witnessing traditional whaling, caribou hunts, fishing, and village life. A lot of wonderful, colorful, and sometimes eccentric people live there :-) I hope to visit again, some day. Central and Northern Alaska are very special.

    So all their greywater and Blackwater ends up right in front of them in the Arctic. There's a couple of months in the year but there's no snow and I bet that place stinks when there's no ice.

    Here's what you do you get a boat or speed boat or plane. Few times a year, you go down State, buy all the groceries in the regular price and bring it up and you save thousands of dollars. You always can do Bitcoin or Crypto-currency mining there. U just need a source of energy.

What about Spanish Tapas? 3) Can you play golf in the summer? 4) I want to bring my Mercedes convertible.....any dealerships nearby for quality service? 5) Any German band in town for Oktoberfest? Any information is appreciated.....

    The sun shines all day for half the year. For those 6 months they could have a monopoly on solar power because everyone else can only get it for 12 hours a day. I think they should look into solar power as their main industry.
