"Much food for thought"
Special to The Libertarian Enterprise
Remember these pictures every time you pull up to the pump and the prices are up again.
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. Second the wildlife loves the pipeline since it is heated and provides a shelter during the worst times during the winter.
Maybe another question should be asked.
FIRST do you know what ANWR is? 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)?
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* 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.
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?
Well 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?
You can start by forwarding this to everyone you know so that they will know the truth.
