After the discovery of oil in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, it didnt take long for environmentalists to cry gloom and doom and for the media to hype those claims. From caribou dying to earthquakes to all hell breaking loose, there was no shortage of catastrophic predictions though the Alaska pipeline now boasts great success roughly 30 years later.

Construction on the pipeline began. Since the completion of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System inthe government of the state of Alaska has been reliant on taxes paid by oil producers and shippers. Prior toAlaska's personal income tax rate was percent—the highest in the United States.
