NFC: Fw: Urgent: Arctic National Widlife Refuge
Time is of the essence with this ..
It only takes 30 seconds to send an e-mail to the President
(president at whitehouse_gov) asking him to designate ANWR as
a National Monument.
Sen. Frank Murkowski had a column in Sunday's Outlook Section
of The Washington Post, calling for opening up the glorious
Arctic wildlife area to oil exploration. Bush also mentioned
on NPR earlier this week that this will be one of his first
Even though Clinton is president for only a few more weeks,
he can still designate the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
to be a National Monument which would forever protect that
pristine wilderness from oil drilling and other commercial
development. Bush has already stated that he will turn the
Refuge over to big oil even though drilling in ANWAR will
only provide about 6 months of the oil demand of the US
anyway. Clinton is on his way out and is sympathetic to
this cause and has already protected more wildlands than
any president since Teddy Roosevelt.
All he needs is a push from the public.
Call the White House hotline at (202)456-1111 (press "0"
when prompted) from 8:30-5:00 EST and tell the comments-line
operator that you want President Clinton to declare the
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to be a National Monument
as the last great environmental act of his presidency.
This one action may result in the protection of more animals
than almost anything else you can do.
You may also send the president an email at:
president at whitehouse_gov.
Your message or phone call may simply say:
Mr. President, As the last environmental act of your presidency,
I am asking you to please designate the Arctic National Wildlife
efuge to be a National Monument. Please culminate your presidency
with this great environmental legacy.
