ANWR should remain pristine
By Charlotte Tanner

Well, I will call you greedy Mr. Droke.

Just plug the words "Largest oil spill hits north Alaska" into Google, and you will receive some statistics concerning a recent disaster in our existing oil pumping business. I am particularly amused/disgusted by the apologist for this disaster's words. He says not to be concerned because this area is an industrial area, NOT a pristine area.

Hey, buddy, it USED to be pristine. Just as ANWR is pristine now, and should remain pristine.
