The Greens Lie About ANWR
Elmer of Minnesotans for Global Warming posted this piece on their website yesterday. It is amazing that Al Gore and his Liberal cabal have been able to stop us from drilling in this so-called pristine environment for so long. It's time to drill.
Things that the gulf's environment has that ANWR doesn't have.

Things that ANWR's environment has that the Gulf doesn't.
To learn more about the amount of oil possibly available in ANWR, check out this website. Here's an excerpt (emphasis mine):
U.S. Department of Interior - 1987. After several years of surface geological investigations, aeromagnetic surveys, and two winter seismic surveys (in 1983-84 and 1984-85), the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI), in its April, 1987 report on the oil and gas potential of the Coastal Plain, estimated that there are billions of barrels of oil to be discovered in the area. DOI estimates that "in-place resources" range from 4.8 billion to 29.4 billion barrels of oil. Recoverable oil estimates ranges from 600 million barrels at the low end to 9.2 billion barrels at the high end. They also reported identifying 26 separate oil and gas prospects in the Coastal Plain that could each contain "super giant" fields (500 million barrels or more).
