Drilling for Oil at Our Nation's Top Coastal Wilderness, ANWR

"It is clear that the jobs and national security arguments just don't hold water, and the American people aren't buying any of it. Drilling in the Arctic Refuge would damage a national treasure while doing little to create new jobs or make our nation more secure. It's not surprising that given the irreparable damage that would occur and the small amount of oil under the refuge, most people see energy efficiency and improved fuel economy as much smarter moves." Quote from Jim Waltman, director of refuges and wildlife for The Wilderness Society.
