Interesting information on Alaskan oil exploration drilling

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 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? 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”)
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 *
