NFC: RE: Fw: Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Alert

Title: __________________________________________________________________

Hello All


Posting these types of emotional appeals from any and all tree hugger groups is not what this list is about. !

If you are going to post these kinds of tree hugger’s emotional garbage appeals (girl next door, apple pie and fourth of July) PLEASE include some facts to support these garbage claims! In Alaska there are no trees on the North Slop, I,e. Artic Refuge we calls them BUNNY HUGGERS !


Right now the artic oil fields are supplying 20% of the nations oil.

As far as it taking 10 years for oil to flow, what do you think is happening with the 20% of the nations oil from the artic now, IT JUST MAGICALLY APPEARS today. NO the pipeline is there today and oil is flowing !

See the rest of the BUNNY HUGGERS emotional appeal for further edits and comments !!!


Y’all have a good day J and mind y’alls own backyard and leave mine alone until y’all have provable facts not just emotional garbage type appeals.

THANK YOU for your past participation in Audubon-supported conservation efforts.

Audubon is writing to you now because an important conservation measure is scheduled to come up in the U.S. House of Representatives BEFORE AUGUST 3rd! At issue is whether the U.S. House of Representatives will vote to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling.

Drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will destroy America’s truly pristine wilderness.

This is GARBAGE. We already have developed oil field in the artic and nothing is destroyed !

Millions of migratory birds that visit our backyards, our seashores, and our local lakes and ponds breed on the coastal plains of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This area has been called "America's Serengeti" -- home to vast herds of migrating caribou as well as musk oxen, polar bears, grizzlies and other rare and endangered wildlife.

This is true today, even with the oil development that has and is still being done in the artic !

Drilling in the Arctic Refuge will not lower gas prices or respond to the electricity problems in California. Drilling in the Arctic Refuge will not bring us closer to energy independence. Drilling will not serve as a long-term solution for our supposed energy crisis.

All this is true: however it will help slow the need for increasing oil from foreign countries 

Ruining the wilderness character of the Arctic Refuge forever would equate to less than a 180-day supply of oil, and it would take a full 10 years before any oil began to flow.

Need statement of facts as to just how this is going to RUIN the Artic Refuge. And again what 10 years ? the first pipeline did not take 10 years to build and oil is flowing from the artic today – 20 % of the nations oil needs are being met by this now flowing oil.

If drilling is allowed, the wilderness character of the Arctic Refuge will disappear.

Again need facts. Just how will the wilderness CHARACTER disappear. And to boot define “WILDERNESS CHARACTER” so that we know exactly what is going to disappear !

You can help prevent this from happening!
