As a quick refresher, back here, I explained (calmly and dispassionately) to ignorant, right-wing wanker "Dizzy Gillespie" why the information you find at http://anwr.org might be just a wee bit biased since, as you can see, that site actually represents "Arctic Power", about whom we can read:
Arctic Power membership spans the economic spectrum - including miners, fishermen, loggers, tourism operators, transportation businesses, labor unions, banks, teachers, the legal community, retail firms, service industries, non-profit organizations, Alaska Native corporations, local elected officials, and many others...
The organization is committed to securing congressional and presidential approval of legislation opening the Coastal Plain of ANWR to responsible oil development.
So, a web site run by people who want to drill in ANWR, amazingly, contains data that defends the idea of drilling in ANWR. What are the chances of that?
And while I enjoy being the first to bring you such fast-breaking news, it's nice to see the mainstream media not far behind:
Senate OKs oil drilling in Alaska's ANWR
With a hard-fought Senate vote yesterday clearing the way, supporters of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge said survey teams could arrive on the harsh landscape within a year and leases for tapping its significant deposits of oil and natural gas could be sold as soon as 2007...
Still another question is how eager oil companies will be to try their luck in ANWR. BP, ConocoPhillips and ChevronTexaco have withdrawn from Arctic Power, the business coalition formed to lobby for drilling in ANWR. Among big oil companies, only ExxonMobil Corp. remains.
And the prosecution rests.
