ANWR Oil Won't Help Us

"Yesterday's horrific terrorist acts have as little to do with drilling for oil in ANWR as last summer's electricity crisis in California. Responding to such terror by allowing oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would be breathtakingly ineffective and irrelevant... Meanwhile, we can be certain of remaining dependent on foreign sources for approximately half our oil consumption, whether we drill in ANWR or not, as long as we do not move boldly to improve the fuel economy of our transportation system." (Quote from Massachusetts Representative Edward Markey)
