ANWR oil exploitation

With the current anguish re oil/gasoline prices, this was sent to me by a retired U.S. Coast Guard Admiral whom I trust and admire.

While more drilling anywhere will not wean us away from “petroleum addiction” in the near future, it should lessen the impact on us in the foreseeable future. But more importantly, it will help send forth the word to OPEC and Hugo Chavez that America will not sit idle during their attempts to stranglehold our economy.

WAKE UP AMERICA!

FIRST...do you know what ANWR is?

ANWR = Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Now...A comparison

ANWR
*ANWR is in orange.

And some perspective...

ANWR

NOTE WHERE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AREA IS...

(it's in the "ANWR Coastal Plain")

ANWR



THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS, LIBERALS AND "GREENS" SHOW YOU WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT ANWR.

...and they are right...these ARE photographs of ANWR.

ANWR

ANWR

ANWR

ISN'T ANWR BEAUTIFUL? WHY SHOULD WE DRILL HERE (AND DESTROY) THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE?

...

...

WELL...THAT'S NOT THE TRUTH.

Do you remember the map?

The map showed that the proposed drilling area is in the ANWR Coastal Plain.

Do those photographs look like a coastal plain to you?

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE...

THAT IS NOT WHERE THEY PROPOSE TO DRILL!

THIS IS WHAT THE PROPOSED EXPLORATION AREA ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE WINTER.


ANWR

AND THIS IS WHAT IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE SUMMER.

ANWR



HERE ARE A COUPLE SCREEN SHOTS FROM GOOGLE EARTH.

ANWR

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE AREA WHERE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT DRILLING IS A BARREN WASTELAND.

OH...AND THEY SAY THAT THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE EFFECT ON THE LOCAL WILDLIFE...

HERE IS A PHOTO (SHOT DURING THE SUMMER) OF THE "DEPLETED WILDLIFE" SITUATION CREATED BY DRILLING AROUND PRUDHOE BAY*...

DON'T YOU THINK THAT THE CARIBOU REALLY HATE THAT DRILLING?

ANWR

HERE'S THAT SAME SPOT DURING THE WINTER.

ANWR

HEY, THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR PRUDHOE BAY*... ANWR

*The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S. domestic oil production.

NOW, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE "ENVIRONMENTALISTS" ARE LYING ABOUT ANWR?

REMEMBER WHEN AL GORE SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICES TO $5.00 A GALLON?

WELL…AL GORE AND HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS HAVE ALMOST REACHED THEIR GOAL!
