Do you know what ANWR stands for?
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Now A comparison in size to Alaska and Alaska to the lower 48.
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?
WELL THAT'S NOT EXACTLY 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 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.
I SEE HOW THE CARIBOU REALLY HATES ALL THE NOISE AND POLLUTION OF THAT DRILLING.
HERE'S THAT SAME SPOT DURING THE WINTER.
HEY, THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR PRUDHOE BAY
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. Second the wildlife loves the pipeline since it is heated and provides a shelter during the worst times during the winter.
The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S. Domestic oil production
NOW, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE POLITICIANS ARE LYING ABOUT ANWR?
REMEMBER WHEN AL GORE SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICES TO $5.00 A GALLON?
AL GORE AND HIS FRIENDS HAVE ALMOST REACHED THEIR GOAL! NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THE POLITICIANS HAVE BEEN LYING, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Did the title $10.00 per gallon get your attention? Gasoline should not be costing but $1 to 2.00 per gallon, so thank the environmentalist and the Democrats this summer when you have to cut your spending in other areas to buy your gasoline....
And I will be thanking the idiots that voted these morons into office. Am I upset....? Well, spending over $100 to fill my tank every week will just add up to a measly $5500 or more per year when it should only cost me between $1200 - 1500 per year.... What do you think?
