Truths About ANWR and $5 per Gallon Gas

This is cycling around the internets.  I thought it interesting and looked it up on snopes.  I know snopes is a fairly left leaning website. They, of course, took the diplomatic route.  Instead of denying the veracity of the information presented, they simply stated “it’s more complicated than that…”

Joe and Jane America are being raped at the gas pump by BIG OIL and BIG GREEN.  All the while, Congress sits on their hands on this issue.  Instead of funding a massive scientific thrust to replace fossil fuels or simply opening places like ANWAR and the Gulf to drilling OR purchasing oil from our neighbors in Canada, Congress holds themselves hostage to special interests such as Exxon Mobile and other Petrol Industry Giants, OPEC and the Greens.

I don’t know if the email is actually from a guy with family in Alaska or if that’s just an emotional plug.  It really doesn’t matter.  America should drill for oil if we have access to it.  We should not be slaves to the Saudis and other OPEC Nations.  If we had no interest in Middle Eastern Oil, we’d not be embroiled in the Middle Eastern troubles.  China, France, Russia and India could spill their own blood in defense of cheaper access to the Saudi throne.

I long for the day that we are no longer involved in the intrigues of the Wahhabi Princes of the Arabian Peninsula and the Idiocracy of the Iranian Revolution.

Read the email below:

**********************************************************************************
My daughter and son-in-law were in L. A. last week from their home in Anchorage . He is a foreman in the oil fields at ANWR.  He has to fly his own plane to get to the job where he spends months at a time in the most God forsaken place this side of Siberia.

He confirmed everything that is in this story, and brought dozens of pictures for proof. Our environmentalist friends have forced gas prices up to an impossible rate, forcing us to buy oil from our enemies, for whatever reason that simply isn’t true.

There is enough oil in AMWR to supply the US at our present rate of usage for more than 200 years. The space that ANWR occupies in Alaska is equivalent to a postage stamp in the Mojave Desert.

If you won’t mind paying $5.00 a gallon in the very near future try to make sense of the following:

This is the best presentation on ANWR I have seen. I would like to add a little more information.  A new pipeline across  Alaska isn’t required since the location for drilling in ANWR is about 160 miles from the North Slope Prudhoe Bay pipeline where it would be connected. I did not know this.

Second the wildlife love the pipeline since it is heated and provides a shelter during the worst times during the winter.

Maybe another question should be asked. FIRST do you know what ANWR is?

ANSWER: Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Now a comparison

And some perspective

NOTE WHERE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AREA IS LOCATED
(it’s in the “ANWR Coastal Plain”)

THIS IS WHAT THE “GREENS” DISPLAY WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT ANWR and they are right these ARE  photographs of ANWR.

ISN’T ANWR BEAUTIFUL?  WHY SHOULD WE DRILL HERE  AND DESTROY THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE?  It would be an act of sacrilege.

WELL THAT’S NOT EXACTLY THE TRUTH!

Remember that map?  The map showed that the proposed drilling area is in the ANWR Coastal  Plain. Do those photographs look like a  coastal plain to you?  No!  That’s because those pictures are not of the coastal plain.  Those are pictures of the interior of ANWR.  Those photos were taken hundreds of miles away from the areas which would be drilled if Congress weren’t beholden to Big Oil and Big Green.

This is the actual area wherein drilling is proposed.

This is what it looks like in winter.

This is what it looks like in the summer.  It’s a barren wasteland.  Devoid of life.

Below is a screen shot from Google Earth:

As you can see, the area in which they propose to drill is a barren wasteland.  It’s devoid of any appreciable wild life.  Nearly devoid of life completely.

Then they say that they are concerned about the effect of Oil Rigs, Equipment, Living and Office Space on the local wildlife.

HERE IS A PHOTO (SHOT DURING THE SUMMER) OF THE  “DEPLETED WILDLIFE” SITUATION CREATED BY DRILLING AROUND  PRUDHOE BAY *

Do the caribou look like they are fearful or starving?  They don’t look in the least bit concern.  Animals have a way of adapting for which the Big Green Propaganda Machine does not give them credit.

THAT SAME SPOT DURING THE WINTER.

THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR PRUDHOE BAY!*The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S. domestic oil production.

WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE LYING ABOUT ANWR?

REMEMBER WHEN  AL GORE SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICES TO $5.00 A GALLON?

AL GORE AND HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS and BIG GREEN MACHINE CRONIES HAVE ALMOST REACHED THEIR GOAL!

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN LYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.  THE REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN GOING ALONG FOR THE RIDE AT THE BEHEST OF BIG OIL.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

**********************************************************************************

It’s past time to run them all out of Washington.  All of the Professional Politicians, their cronies and the lobbying scum.

VOTE OUT ALL OF THE INCUMBENTS!

And keep voting them out until they do the bidding of the people by whom they were sent to Washington in the First Place.

* I made a few alterations in style but left the substance of the email intact.*

  1. They have been serving the Middle East oil barons and not the American people, Dave. The super-thinking government and national media aren’t telling the story as straight as this!.
