Do more research

Obviously Mr. Turnbull is another of those folks who like to
try and "tell" us Alaskans how we should run our state
as so many others have done in the past. He obvisously has done
zero research on how the the current oil companies who are up
on the north slope (BP, Conoco Phillips, Unocal etc) are VERY
conciencious of the way they handle things up there. Places that
operate here in the Kenai Peninsula in actual wildlife refuges
work together with the oil companies that are in the middle of
them take extra care to avoid any disruptions that could cause
any harm to the ecosystem. In fact, its the first thing that
is immediately taken care of.
Do more research before you
come up with weird ideas like solar panels and other wild ideas
for us to get "cleaner" energy. Southeast for instance
is a RAINFOREST that gets over 14 ft of rain per year. Interior
Alaska sees about 6 hrs of day light during the winter, and summer
lasts for about 4 months. The rest is rain, fog and snow and
darkness. If you're lucky, the occasional sunshine will come
out to brighten your day!
By-the-way, what sort of vehicle
do you drive? Unless it's a solar paneled, or new hybrid electric
car, you're right up there with the dirty money people!
You also may want to read our
Governor's nice letter regarding ANWR, it's
definitely worth the read. Thanks Frank!
Have a wonderful weekend my
friends in Ktown, I miss you tons!
Much Love and Peace,
