Abstract: Northern Perspectives would be of interest to those concerned about Northern development. It is produced bimonthly by the Canadian Arctic Resources Committee (CARC), which since 1972 has been the major non-governmental research and public interest group dealing with energy and environmental issues in the North. Each issue gives an in-depth report on one or more of the most important development projects under way or being proposed for the North. In 1983, CARC led the fight against Gulf Canada's proposal to build a marine base at Stokes Point on the North Slope of the Yukon, the site of a designated national wilderness park. That proposal has now been rejected by the federal government, but only after extensive lobbying by CARC. Other recent editions of Northern Perspectives have dealt with the economics of Beaufort Sea oil, a report on CARC's third national workshop on "people, resources, and the Environment North of 60 degrees," and the future of the Arctic Ocean.
