The following e-mail was sent to me the other day, and it’s just too good not to republish.
The bottom line is this; when you hear Democrats saying drilling in ANWR won’t solve all of our oil problems. Until some alternative form of energy is developed to replace oil, we must take many proactive actions. ANWR, shale, coastal drilling etc. — altogether these solutions will relieve us of the horrible dependence we have on jihad oil.
Who the hell is Congress working for? We elected them – they are public servants. They work for us.
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 (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, which 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 prices to $5 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?
You can start by forwarding this to everyone you know, so that they will know the truth.
P.S.: Drilling does not “destroy.” It creates jobs, resources and strengthens our economy — all while protecting our environment. Everyone benefits, even caribou.
