Help Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from Oil Drilling

Help Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from Oil Drilling

 

President Bush and Congressional leaders are exploiting high gas prices to rush through legislation that would industrialize the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for the sake of oil company profits.

They’re trying to sacrifice our nation’s premiere wildlife sanctuary in order to "solve" problems at the gas pump. But the Bush Administration’s own Energy Department says that drilling in the Arctic Refuge will save consumers only two cents per gallon at the pump – 20 years from now!

Meanwhile, the oil companies would line their pockets with billions more in profits. The oil companies win, while everyone else, including an irreplaceable Arctic ecosystem, the vital birthing ground for polar bears, arctic wolves and grizzlies, loses.

Watch Robert Redford here as he talks about the urgency to block this legislation in a short video featuring the wildlife and wilderness of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Join us in asking Senate Majority Leader Frist not to move ahead with any legislation that would open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. Please sign today!
