My daughter and son-in-law were in L. A. last week from their home in Anchorage . He is a foreman in the oil fields at ANWR. He has to fly his own plane to get to the job where he spends months at a time in the most God forsaken place this side of Siberia .
He confirmed everything that is in this story, and brought dozens of pictures for proof. Our environmentalist friends have forced gas prices up to an impossible rate, forcing us to buy oil from our enemies, for whatever reason that simply isn't true.
There is enough oil in AMWR to supply the US at our present rate of usage for more than 200 years. The space that ANWR occupies in Alaska is equivalent to a postage stamp in the Mojave Desert .
If you won't mind paying $5.00 a gallon in the very near future try to make sense of the following:
Something you should know: Oil . . .
This is the best presentation on ANWR I have seen.
I would like to add a little more information. A new pipeline across
Alaska isn't required since the location for drilling in ANWR is about
160 miles from the North Slope Prudhoe Bay pipeline where it would
be connected. I did not know this.
Second the wildlife love the pipeline since it is warm from the friction of the flowing oil and provides a
shelter during the worst times during the winter.
Maybe another question should be asked. FIRST do you know what
ANWR is? ANSWER: 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 "GREENS" SHOW YOU
WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT ANWR
these are photographs of ANWR
ISN'T ANWR BEAUTIFUL? WHY
SHOULD WE DRILL HERE AND DESTROY THIS BEAUTIFUL
PLACE? WELL THAT'S NOT EXACTLY
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 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
HEY, THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY
HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR
*The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S.
Domestic oil production
NOW, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT
LYING ABOUT ANWR?
AL GORE SAID THAT
THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO
ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICES
TO $5.00 A GALLON?
WELL AL GORE
AND HIS Cohorts HAVE ALMOST
REACHED THEIR GOAL!
NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THEY
HAVE BEEN LYING,
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO
YOU CAN START BY FORWARDING
THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
SO THAT THEY WILL KNOW
