NFC: Re: Fw: Urgent: Arctic National Widlife Refuge

No Way!

We're going to get the oil from somewhere.  No matter where you do it there
will be damage.  We live on one earth.  Alaska is as foreign to me as the
Middle East.  But I'll bet the Americans drill "cleaner" than the arabs.

Besides, every time the Sierra club gets one of these stupid things through,
I have one less place to enjoy nature because my 4x4 or my ATV aren't
allowed to pass.

Bush is probably our best hope for balanced equal access to the environment.
