    This place would be a blast to explore in a few decades when the oil money is all gone. So many aging and abandoned structures, rusty old towers that once broadcasted WiFi and radio, I bet it'll be just like something out of a Fallout game.

    It has a real native culture there and its an interesting unique lifestyle. They have polar bears,whales, seals,eagles and beautiful Aurora lights in the winter. In the summer the weather is very nice.

    Native Alaskan people lived and thrived on the North slope long before airplanes and white men arrived in Barrow. My cousins Mark, Jim Wolgmuth worked the pipeline on the 70's and made their fortune in Pt. Barrow AK with their store .

It'll change your life forever, I promise.

    Nice show years ago I looked up temps in Barrow on my Nextel Gov Phone it was -88 , you can never forget such a name once you see the cold weather and climate of Barrow Alaska . I live in Minnesota it gets so cold there I spend winters in California & Florida , so I can only have bad dreams of what it would feel like to me to be in Barrow Alaska .

    I took a day trip to Barrow out of Fairbanks in August 2009. There was no sea ice and the temp was 45 degrees. I took a walk in the water to say I dipped my tootsies in the Arctic Sea. It was a great place to visit, but I don't know if I would be able to live there on a permanent basis. When you have lived where there are four seasons you whole life, it would be difficult to get use cold weather year round. Hoping to get up to Alaska again in the future. It would be my 3rd visit. An absolutely beautiful state.

    If the world warms by 6 Degrees Celsius. Barrow can become a city of hundreds of thousands or millions. He who controls arctic trade, will control the world. The newest major hubs of the global economy will be Norilsk, Tromsø, Murmansk, Halifax, St. Johns, Reyjavik, Yellowknife and Barrow. Any major city south of Detroit or Chicago will be uninhabited. New hubs will also open up in Antarctica. You heard it here first ;)

    A thought on your narration. You said no roads exist due to freeze thaw cycles. Being in Illinois I get that. Yet the airport has concrete and asphalt runways as seen in your video. They survive. I think roads for vehicles are simply to financially justified because snow mobiles are likely the most used vehicles.

Barrow has a synthetic turf field (the northernmost one in the world) that their high school's football team plays on, and for every game that the team competes in they need to fly there. You can even find the turf field on Google Maps because it is bright blue while everything else in Barrow is brown.
