I don't invoke the issue of mental health lightly: my older brother suffered for several decades from schizophrenia. But the damage done by the Exxon Valdez disaster—still the largest oil spill in a pristine area—has never been adequately addressed. Exxon and the oil industry owns Alaska—every resident gets a pitiful annual dividend from oil royalties paid to the state by extractors. Everyone is addicted, a mental health issue, to that check.
