Myths About Drilling in ANWR - Views - Heritage Foundation - Myths About Drilling in ANWR: "We’re talking about 10 billion barrels of domestic oil located in an area with a proven track record for environmentally responsible drilling. Yet a host of tall tales from environmental activists and like-minded journalists has made it a tough fight in Washington.

Congress is currently deciding whether to add ANWR drilling to the defense appropriations bill. Given the continued high oil prices and political turmoil in many oil-producing nations, now might be the best chance to get ANWR done. But it will happen only if the ANWR myths are exposed..."

Wonderful article, consise and to the point. I wish congress would get their collective heads together and open the land for drilling.

Enviromental Damage: (HA!)
" the caribou herd that migrates through Prudhoe Bay has increased from 3,000 to 23,000 since drilling commenced there in 1977."

Good idea. Its a big place. I think us Europeans think these places are really small. Its hard to think in terms of the vast size of such places when you live in a country smaller than many of your states.
