ANWR Oil - I Need Some, What About You?

I apologize for being a bit 'political' here. However, the truth is the truth and I have a family that has needs. And when politicians want to play politics that affect my family's well being... I get a bit hot under the collar.

I've taken this info from a recently received email. I've heard the statistics but these pictures and facts really bring it out. I have 6 children and we NEED our large 2002 Chevrolet Suburban to get them safely and comfortably around our city. See why I know the government could be doing better for us ALL. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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 ...
















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 DEMOCRATS ARE LYING ABOUT ANWR?
REMEMBER WHEN AL GORE SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICESTO $5.00 A GALLON? WELL. AL GORE AND HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS HAVE ALMOST REACHED THEIR GOAL!


NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN LYING,WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

Remember this???

In the year 2000, (the very first day of his presidency), George Bush was talking about our energy crisis and the need to drill in ANWAR. The oil, (conservative projections say 20 Billion Barrels), would now have been flowing to the U.S. over the past 2 to 3 years. (That is enough oil to allow us the option to import 0 (that's zero, zilch, none, nada!!!) barrels from foreign countries for a period of 30 years, hum???) Perhaps it's time we get started going after some of our own energy resources...

Did you know that other countries, (including Mexico and Cuba), are drilling just 90 miles off shore of Florida and California? We let them do that, but our own Government won't allow American Companies to do the same thing. I would trust U.S. Companies over Mexican and Cuban Companies any day of the week to do it wiser and safer. Did you know that the 'Green Peacers' have not allowed us to build a single oil refinery in this country in the last 35 years? And we wonder why the price of oil is so volatile.

It's time to drill here, drill now, and pay less. Think about it when you vote in November...

The CAPS in this story were there from the original and I didn't feel like taking the time to decap it and tone it down a bit. But, I'd say that I'd agree with nearly 99% of the story in total. I've written to my senators and congressman. We are the greatest and most powerful country in the world. We COULD have $1.00 a gallon of gasoline again IF we went after what we have right here in our own country.

I totally agree that we need to start drilling our own oil. Candace Salima (LDS) has a blog and she interviews a lot of politicians, etc. She has very strong views about our need to drill our own oil.

BTW - we met on LDS Autism. Here's a link to my blog, Queen of the Clan. I hope you stop by!

I blog for Congressman Dan Burton's official campaign blog www.danburtonblog.com. Because of his interest in autism issues (his grandson is autistic) I peruse blogs like this one from time to time.

So I was also glad to see your post on Energy and oil exploration. You are right on the mark. Dan's been encouraging people to go to www.americansolutions.com and fill out a survey asking Congress to support drilling in ANWR (and off shore).

Keep up the good work.

Completely agree! I get so annoyed with politicians and celebrities who fly around in private jets and then tell us to quit driving SUV's. We can't exactly fit three carseats / booster seats in a sedan (we tried).

I'm another mom from LDS Autism, also saw your videos in the Posautive group on YouTube. Very cool!

Right, just because an area of the country is small and uninhabited means that we should DEFINITELY use it for oil and completely destroy it. God forbid we forget about our damn Suburbans and think about CLEAN energy for a change.
