Energy Security means: Exploitation
by Don Hoff Jr.
July 19, 2004
Governor Frank Murkowski wants to exploit the Alaska Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) by allowing oil exploitation (exploration)
knowing now that it would have adverse effects on the caribou
herds, Alaskans that subsist on the caribou and damage the fragile
The American people and Alaskans want a pristine Alaska for the
future of the human race in the world. President Bill Clinton
and former Interior Secretary Bruce Babbit has always been against
natural resource development in ANWR. Babbitt is correct by saying
drilling in the petroleum reserve will disrupt wildlife, spoil
untouched lands, and ruin the biological heart of the western
Arctic. We are glad that President Clinton and Secretary Babbit
are preservationists and have the foresight to protect ANWR for
future generations of our children and grand children. It is
obvious that Governor Murkowski and President George Bush can
care less about the environment, Alaskans and our future except
to line their own pockets and oil buddies with oil money. Just
The Governor said, developing the petroleum reserve would also
add billions of dollars into the United States economy and add
hundreds of good-paying jobs. Frank did not mention Alaska nor
create jobs for Alaskan residents. The oil belongs to Alaskans
and to the people that were here first.
Say no to oil exploration and exploitation of Alaska Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge. This is my own opinion.
