Drollette, D. (2019): What if the Arctic melts, and we lose the great white shield? Interview with environmental policy expert Durwood Zaelke

Drollette, Dan (2019): What if the Arctic melts, and we lose the great white shield? Interview with environmental policy expert Durwood Zaelke. In Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists 75 (5), pp. 239–246. DOI: 10.1080/00963402.2019.1654269.
