I read this on Atlas Shrugs over the weekend and then from my brother Paul who works in the Oil industry… So with that kind of testimonial, I had to share
“If you care about Mother Earth, you should support opening ANWR.” They went on to explain in detail about the methods and care taken to protect the environment while drilling for the energy that is the lifeblood of our economy –and way of life. I was surprised, too.”
Hey Congressman Israel, I still think you are a mensch for coming over to me and discussing the Issue on Sunday, but why aren’t you listening to the will of the people? I understand why a New York Congressman would want to avoid Drilling in ANWR, after all Just like a NY Taxi Driver, the word is missing vowels, but here is the good news, not only is ANWR an acronym, all the stuff your Democratic party leadership is telling you about ANWR is BOGUS:
ANWR = Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Now… A comparison
And some perspective… NOTE WHERE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AREA IS…
(it’s in the “ANWR Coastal Plain”)
THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS, LIBERALS AND “GREENS” SHOW YOU WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT ANWR …and they are right… these ARE photographs of ANWR
ISN’T ANWR BEAUTIFUL? WHY SHOULD WE DRILL HERE (AND DESTROY) THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE? WE WONT…that’s not the part of ANWR where the oil is Check 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 ARE WANTING TO DRILL! THIS IS WHAT THE PROPOSED EXPLORATION AREA ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE WINTER
AND THIS IS WHAT IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE SUMMER
HERE ARE A COUPLE SCREEN SHOTS FROM GOOGLE EARTH
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?
HERE’S THAT SAME SPOT DURING THE WINTER. HEY, THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR PRUDHOE BAY*…
*The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S. domestic oil production CONVINCED YET? CLICK HERE FOR THE REST OF THE STORY….
